I hate it when I do that (but apparently not enough that it prevents me from doing it again and again). But I am having more frequent successes at being able to stop at a reasonable amount. With you not preparing dinners, I can see it would be harder to keep to a plan.

Nothing truer has ever been said.

1. Calories under 1300: 1020, 978, 1042
2. An hour extra movement a day: Y, Y, N
3. No sugar, white flour: Y,Y,Y
4. Small bites and put fork down between bites.- still not a habit - sometimes I start a meal doing this, and then by the end am shoveling it in - not because Iím hungry - just because Iím eating mindlessly
