  • How about controlling yourself?
    Dieting and weight loss are about self control, and if you don't have it, well hunny you have a long hard road ahead of you. Try down sizing your portions and stop eating out. If you like to eat for the sake of eating, eat less of it.. don't deny your body other wise you'll crash and eat all you can. Listen to your body! When it says it's full listen to it!!

  • Oh! One thing that worked for me..
    Get a low cal soup and salad before your dinner. You won't eat as much.
    I'm a quantity eater too, so just stock up on a bunch of fruit and veggies.
    If you need something sweet, try strawberries sprinkled with sugar. SO good.
    Also, use smaller plates. It works.

  • you have to have self control. you think thin mom's are thin because they eat what they want (some who are lucky do) but no! They watch what they eat and they don't pig out and then come on cafe mom and say they eat too much. STOP!! Excersise and dont pig out. Eat healthy...its the only way to really loose weight and keep it off...I know because I have been doing it for years

  • Normal eating includes SOMETIMES eating an extra portion of something just because it tastes good. It's also SOMETIMES eating a liitle extra even if you're already full. Nothing wrong with that. However, it sounds like you have a food addiction, which can not be cured by "portion control" and "not eating out" or not "pigging out". It's a PSYCHOLOGICAL problem, which manifests itself in a physical way.

    You have to ask yourself WHY you continually eat even when you're already full? Are you bored, lonely, depressed? That's where you start.
