    That is such a great feeling. I had a similar moment today when I was cooking lunch for my fiance and daughter. I made grilled cheese and eggs(weird combo, i know). I actually didn't make myself any, or finish what my daughter didn't eat! Usually I would make myself more than everyone else, and finish my daughters food...even if I wasn't hungry. It's like phen is giving me control of myself. I honestly didn't want any...

    The best part and when you do that without even thinking about it. You just gradually stop eating so much!

    that is a really great thing to tell yourself everyday...I'll keep that in mind thanks!

    and I had a very similar 'aha' moment when I got fast food for the first time since starting phen and didn't eat all my fries! I started taking the bottom piece of bread off my burgers awhile ago and did that too...but not eating all my fries is nuts...i love fries!!

    that definately made me go "aha!!"

    YAY...it is so great when you know it is working.
    I did it!! Reached goal and have been here for quite a while thanks to low carb eating and working out like crazy! Phen didn't work for me, but that isn't to say that there aren't other ways. God bless all of you!

    Isn't that both great and really weird when that happens?
    So THIS is what "normal" people do. Who knew?
    Congrats!

    Default I had an A-HA moment that the Phen is working

    This was day 5 for me being on Phen.

    Tonight my husband picked up hamburgers and an order of chili cheese fries for dinner from Backyard burgers. I had eaten well today, stayed with in my WW points, and had plenty left over for dinner. So when he arrived I began to eat and I only ate half the hamburger and only about a 1/3 of the chili cheese fries. I felt full and I STOPPED EATING. Usually, I would eat it ALL, plus a big Dr. Pepper. But not tonight. I had some water and I was done. That was around 7:30. I do not feel hungry at all. He even kept asking me if I was done. So I really feel the Phen is working for me. I hope this is giving me the push I have needed for so long to get healthy and live that way.
