The first few weeks suck, but once your stomach shrinks and gets used to the normal portion sizes you will be on your way. Of course there will be moments when you can't help but to eat like a pig (that time of the month) I just chose low calorie foods so I could eat more without going over my daily calories. Rice cakes where a favorite and they have tons of different flavors, fresh cucumbers were another favorite and are actually quite filling
chicken is low in calories as well. A 4oz boneless skinless breast is around 120 cals. Throw some bbq/hot sauce on it with some veggies and rice and there's still room for dessert. For example I'm addicted to those drumsticks haha which are 210 cals each. So for around 500 calories or less you can have a filling dinner and dessert! You just really have to want it and it takes a great amount of self discipline. Oh and you can't forget to cheat once in awhile
just make sure after your cheat day that you get back on the track, but once you start seeing results it's quite easy to get back on track
