I've come accross your post at the 10 pounds by end of June challenge and really wish you luck to succeed. It is hard to find the right balance, sometimes. After a long while it is only this week that I see steady loss (I lost most of my pounds in my first month of SP). I had to adjust my workout - from more minutes to more intensity added to those minutes. I realised that I'm so used to walking 40 mins that my body does not recognize that as fitness. As I added 20-30 mins of elliptical trainer this has made the trick.
I don't want to sound extra smart here but have you tried the suggested SP nutrition plans? I believe they can help you feel more satisfied and less hungry. Myself a huge bread and pasta lover - I decided to cut all white carbs and go dark: brown rice; whole meal pasta; whole wheat bread in addition to fruit and veg to every single meal. Adding a little bit of protein to each of the meals also helped me to feel less hungry and deprived. I do feel hungry occasionally - there are these PMS days or I work out too much or some emotional thing hits me - but in general I don't feel hungry most times on this diet. And that was my big dieting fear that I have to decide whether I want to be hungry or slim in my life. Both, for a long time, did no seem like a possiblity. But it is.
Don't give up in searching for a solution. Give it time. Best wishes on your way. And hang in there, it will come along.
