I did learn it quick, I had to if I wanted to succeed, I just had it in my head that failing this time wasn't an option, there was no other way.
Being full and wanting more is a weird one, musually when I'm full I'm done in and that is it for me.
I was like you at first in that I wouldn't eat any 'bad' foods a first,maybe for the first 3 or 4 months, until there was a noticable difference in my body and until I was 100% sure that one splurge wouldn't lead to another.
I missed out on a few family dinners this way because I wasn't sure how I would deal with things afterwards.
Sizewise I have gone from a 26 plus to a 16, some tops I have are a 14 and I even bought a size 12 winter jacket a couple of weeks back, it fits and even buttons up but by the time it gets cold enough to wear it, it will look even better. That said there is no way I would fit a size 12 pair of pants
Bodyshape wise I have a pair shaped figure these days and I really don't mind it at all, it's far nicer than my previous apple shape
. I have a pretty small top half and a not so small butt, belly and thighs but I can live with that. I have pics in my piccie thread, Shalimars pics or similar in the photo sectiion, it was last updated a month or so ago. It starts off with a photo of me 4 or 5 months into it and then goes down from there but there is a much older one of me in the middle somewhere that my son recently found so I stuck it in there. My boobs have shrunk heaps going from a dd cup to a c cup, whether they shrink anymore is anyones guess, time will tell I suppose.
Ok, that's enough from me for now, it's king of hard typing on a netbook while lying in bed
