I bought a couple of boxes of grapes when out shopping, the large ones with seeds as sold in Lidl - and I did really well with the first one, eating only a few each day. This is done by taking a few out of the box and then putting it back in the fridge. A simple ploy but it works. Then I was unable to get to the fridge as my husband was getting himself some milk for his coffee - so I carried the box to my desk, and then I ate them.
Other people have admired my self control with foods I simply do not eat, but that requires no effort at all. I do not eat biscuits, chips or cake, so I do not eat them even if I see them, and things such as green salad - fine, a single tomato - I take the smallest one from the net - but those things I do eat but should restrict, grapes and melon, I have to put them out of sight or I just keep on having a few, or another little slice, and I can't do that these days.
At least my waist has continued to shrink and soften - my abdomen was totally rigid a few months ago, and I had an equator rather than a waist. Now I need to make myself a whole new set of clothes which compress my waist to stay in place - otherwise the waistline slides down rather alarmingly, or are held up in some other way - dresses rather than skirts, or some sort of top to secure them from the effects of gravity.
