    So, I'm trying this new amazing concept. Some of you might have heard of it,
    It's called Only Eating Til You're Full............
    I have always eaten massive huge portions and would never dream of giving myself a smaller plate than my husband, and I have always cleared my plate regardless.
    So I am tackling my greed along with my weight!

    Yes. That's a good point actually, I have done lots of diets where you can eat unlimited amounts of certain foods.
    However, have just spent 6 weeks doing the Cambridge diet so my stomach should have shrunk.
    See I say all that, I have just eaten my whole bowl of chilli and rice......... x

    I totally agree whenever I did slimming world I would put so much weight on as soon as I slipped off the wagon because I was used to eating so much. It just creates bad habits.

    Big fail today on the portion control. I seem to think I am an 18 stone rugby player.
    Must try harder tomorrow!!

    As in kitchen scales? No but I think I need to get some!
    I am way under my calories still today but that might be the problem, I'm so starving by tea-time I feel like I could eat a horse! x

    So you've still got calories left for today? Eat them if you're hungry :) I've only got some crappy mechanical ones but they do still help :) I am going to get some digital ones though as my current scales only for 5g graduations and digital scales do 1g :)

    Yeah, I'm going to get some digital ones. And I'm not hungry anymore, that's what a giant size portion of chilli does for you! xx

    A lady at work gave me this titbit a year or so ago, and I've always used it when cooking/eating meals with my boyfriend:

    For portion sizes, he has two-thirds, and you have one-third.

    Always works for me. It's SO easy to end up eating the same portion size as a bloke, but we really don't need that much!
