Celebrate the Small things: In between belt sizes

When this hole makes your pants too loose, but the next hole makes them too tight, you have a problem. Being between belt sizes means you are either losing weight, or putting it on, and depending on your goals, this could be a good thing or a bad thing. It is nevertheless, a bit of a nuisance.

If you're a regular reader of Square Pegs, you will no doubt be aware of my other equally superb blog I Don't Cook which chronicles, with riveting flair, my culinary adventures (that is not an overstatement.)

It should be obvious, in a way, how my food blog connects to this particular small things post, but less obvious-obscure even, is how the content of this post relates to being between belt sizes.

I regularly buy frozen dinners. I buy whatever brand is on special when I shop, and the meals are usually of the low fat variety. They come in different portion sizes, ranging from 220g up to around 420g. The small servings have become increasingly unsatisfying due to their...smallness, so yesterday I decided to buy two of the small meals. You know what happened, right?

It was too much. Anyway, I have figured out that a meal of between 300-350 gram is good for me. Unfortunately, that limits my choice so once again I am splayed on the horns of a dilemma. More woe!

Today I am thankful for small servings of generally delicious food, and the small price tags attached to them.

  1. Hi! Frozen dinners aren't bad. They keep the weight down and have improved a lot over the years.

    1. They certainly have, and my continued good health (thank God) is testimony to that. Nice to hear from you Sharon.

  2. That is a conundrum many of us face, so you're not alone! ;) It is nice that the frozen dinners seem to have made great improvements over the years - not like the old 'TV Dinners' of years ago. Good luck on the horns of your dilemma - hopefully you'll find the *right* dinners that work perfect for you! :)

  3. Haha! In between belt sizes and portion sizes is a tough place to be. I used to buy Lean Cuisine in my younger days. They were very good, but I liked Weight Watchers ones better. Good luck either slimming down or fattening up -- or finding a hole punch. ;)

  4. Good one Lexa. The hole punch is a perfect solution. Have a great week.
