Erin asked a very good question... she asked if I measure my meat raw or cooked. I measure it raw, since that is what you're supposed to do. 3.5 ounces raw comes out to about 2 ounces cooked.
She also pointed out that I ate 3.5oz of COOKED GROUND BEEF!!
Um, oops!?!? Ha ha, I didn't even think about that. Good thing Erin is a smart one!
That could very well be why I only lost half a pound despite drinking so much water and tea that I literally was in the bathroom every 8-10 minutes. All. Day. Long.
Thanks, Erin!!! And I'll have to look and see if Republic of Tea is in my grocery store. Right now I have Celestial Seasonings and Stash.
