    Diets never worked for me. Portion control is the way I did it. Everything in moderation. Not easy, but once I saw that it worked, it got better.

    I used to say that if it didn’t go to waste, it would go to my waist.

    Studies will show that our children make us fat.

    Portion control and eating natural (non-processed) food works for me. And I never understood people who finish all of their kids’ junk food. Yes, it doesn’t need to be finished and the kids don’t need all that junk either.

    I had a friend that would cut any meal he was served into 2 halves. He would have them pack up 1 half, he would eat the other half and then leave the rest there.

    “Kids do that sometimes.”
    My youngest granddaughter would say, “Grandma?. . . I can’t finish my ice cream cone! Would you put it in the fridge for me?”

    Lynn’s Notes:
    Here is an example of bad lettering. Hand lettering has to be neat, clean, and legible. Spaces between the words are important as well. You have to make sure that the reader’s eyes flow easily over the text and that he knows exactly what’s being said. I never thought twice about the lettering in this strip until I received a note from a reader saying he couldn’t understand why: In the second panel, Elly had called herself a “goon.”

    I always have my husband order the desert my kid wants and nothing for myself, then when she says she’s full after eating only 1/3-1/2 of it, I get the rest. Then I’m only eating half a dessert, not 1&1/2 =) If you know it;s going to happen anyways, might as well plan for it. Then if she DOES finish (which is rare) I don;t miss not having something.
