    Have any of you noticed your stomach shrinking? (stomach inside not belly outside).

    A couple of months ago I could quite easily eat two chicken fillets for dinner, but last night I made myself two chicken fillets, stuffed with cottage cheese and chives then wrapped in bacon. I had cauliflower and mange tout peas with it. I could only eat one of the fillets and half of the veg. I was just stuffed to the gills. I have noticed I can now only manage a half sized dinner to what I used to be able to eat. I guess my stomach must be shrinking back to normal instead of being stretched to the max with all that I used to put in it!

    Anyone else the same?

    Yea I have noticed it too. Before I could easily put away a large kebab and some, now I can only manage some meat before I am full. Luckily, a large kebab without any mayo or bread is 12.5 syns, so I can have my treat without worrying!

    How funny I was thinking this the other day... if people are actually eating less?

    I don't eat much as it is.. so I find that the more I eat the more I lose but find it hard to eat so much!

    But did wonder when the stomach shrinks lol.

    Yeah, I have noticed this, can't put away the portion sizes I used to - have noticed it particularly when eating at other people's houses and I can't finish what's on my plate and they are having 2nds!! Also can't drink wine like I used to - get piddled much quicker! But there's less of me to take it i guess!!
