    @jaga13 I can't say I'm at the point when I can take my time eating lol...I always seem to be in a rush to get on with other things.

    Congratulations: MFP can be addicting. Me too, I have been on here a long time, and find I prefer fruit over a lot of things that I used to eat a lot of, that wasn't very healthy and loaded with empty calories. I am at goal weight now, but I keep checking in.

    That is really cool. :)

    I am currently pondering on how I really struggle with your third point, stopping at one mouthful of tasty-yet-calorific things. It really is like a total lack of self-control, like I think one thing and my body does another. "I don't need another truffle!" *reaches for truffle* ... y'know?

    I'm wondering if it's something about treats being limited among me and my siblings when I was younger, and them being first come, first served. So if I saw a treat and fancied it, if I didn't take it then it would be gone next time I open the cupboard.

    Anyway, I'm determined to crack it. I'm 150 calories per day over my calories burned for the past eight days, and not having chocolate in the house is not the solution. So we'll see.

    oh I've been totally addicted to mfp in my time here, I still can't stop myself checking in to see how everyone is doing even though I'm not great at being supportive these days....

    This post made me smile! I've been back on the case for a couple of months, and I've fallen back into non-gluttonous eating habits with an ease that has taken me by surprise, just by thinking about what I am doing rather than just mindlessly stuffing down the next meal. My epiphany was that my sweet tooth can be satisfied with, say, 1/4 or 1/8 of a chocolate brownie instead of having to demolish the whole thing, and that I'm no longer satisfied with 'meh' foods. If I'm going to eat it, it's going to be something I enjoy :)
