I did good until I went to my neighbours house where they had hot wine punch & cookies and other stuff. I only had one cookie, which I didn't even reaaaally want, it was more because I didn't want to refuse everything..(always my "problem") But I haven't had lunch that day, so I definitely didn't ea...

I keep reading on other sites that you can lose wt and "never be hungry again" but I think that might involve regular snacking and might not amount to me losing wt at all! I think that "never be hungry again" is not really what you want too! Because there is nothing more satisfying that eating a go...
