Yeah, pretty much everybody probably. I'm lucky that the whole thing has been relatively easy for me, but I've still had some patches where after a day or two I'm suddenly thinking "WHAT have I been doing?" and I need to make an adjustment.
One thing you might want to do is to stop the half dinners! I don't mean eat more. I just mean get yourself a smaller plate so it doesn't look like "half" and you don't think of it that way. It's a full dinner, your whole dinner, right? Just an appropriately sized one for your current needs. And maybe -- if you're not a person in whom it will trigger binges, and if you do actually desire to have things like ice cream in your routine -- actually plan for them, just not so often or as much as you know will cause problems. You don't outright say that you're having trouble with feeling deprived, but the whole/half thing and the ice cream suggest that maybe you are.
Regardless, just do what you need to do right now, before "slipping" become a habit.
