I knew I had to lose weight, so one day I decided to use a desert bowl for my cereals, fruits, and measuring most of my foods. I've been eating only one item every 2 to 3 hrs and so far I have lost 18 lbs. in 2 months.
I feel its better to lose the weight slow. With the desert bowl I am consistent with the measure. I hope this can help someone else as it has helped me.

Since this is a life style change and not a diet I needed to learn how to eat deserts. So I now eat them in cupcake papers. Ice cream or apple pie, or a piece of cake in a cupcake paper looks festive and sufficient as compared to the same amount lost on a desert plate. Double satisfaction, having the desert and remaining in control.
