Yes, it's harder now!! The portion sizes that I used to be able to lose weight from, like just cutting down a bit, don't work anymore!! I have had to cut portions down more and be more strict with what I eat too! Hate it!! I also have to keep myself in a constant hungry state, not so hungry that I feel weak or nauseous, just a wee bit hungry or else I don't lose.
Ouuu..that loooong night flight back home from Hawaii is *awful*!!
The California coastline is nice!! :)
