I've always had a problem with serving sizes. My Dad liked to pile your plate high and then would get his feelings hurt if you didn't eat it all. Which lead to being able to eat two solid dinner plates of spaghetti at a go. Of course once I left high school things changed and I found myself no longer fitting into the size 5 jeans that I'd worn for 3 years. And later when I started a desk job I foud myself balooning up 40 lbs. Mostly because I'm used to eating until I'm full, which can take a while.
So I'm currently trying to change this. But how do you convince a somach that's used to consuming mass quantities that it's not starving to death when you start eating regular portions? I'm fine for a day or two, but more than that and I want to gnaw on my arms to get full. Supposedly it will shrink down and get used to it eventually. I'm not sure which of us will give in first.
On the bright side, I've lost 8 lbs since I started this 3 or 4 weeks ago.
