How long did it take you to lose the weight? You say "fairly quickly." What I'm asking is, for how many years did you eat whatever you want, whenever you wanted it, compared with how many months you've made more self-conscious choices and restricted your intake?

It really takes time and patience with yourself to sink into these relatively new habits. You will regain and re-lose as you figure it out.

You say you want to eat all the time. Are you bingeing? Or having issues with portion control? What are common situations where you have trouble? Can you think them out & then come up with some alternative strategies? You're gonna have to think about patterns of thought & behavior & work on those. They are harder than the food choices and they take longer to resolve.

I won't lie: It's a lot of work, which sometimes feels natural and then sometimes again feels like a lot of work.
