I was one of those who 'ate myself stupid' at the buffey line. The original post took me back in time to September 30, 2006..........the day I was hypnotied AND my first visit to a buffet after the hypnosis. Like the original poster, I knew it would be a true test. The difference? Instead of having a serving of everything, I had a TASTE of everything. I do eat a bit more than normal at a buffet, but a trip down the buffet line is no where NEAR the food orgy it was in the past. I am comfortably full when I am finished. It's all part of the life long plan: moderation and occasional indulgence.
way to go! I think the hardest thing for me is the Chinese food buffets! Good thing we only go once per year!

I just faced my challenge with the buffet. I drank lots of water, ate my salad first, then had a some plate of mostly veggie, and 1 chocolate covered strawberry for dessert. Which is a change from, pop, no salad, 3-4 plates full and lots of desserts! Funny thing is, I was happier that I was able to control this than eating everything in sight!

My family likes the Chinese buffett. I like the sushi. Only one item really has raw fish in it. I love those rolls and the wasabi sauce.
They also have the mongolian grill where we make our own plate.

Awesome work! -- I can make it through 1 buffet on occasion, making good choices, but I don't know if I could stick w/ it for all 3 meals! And I have learned about the "content" feeling when having eaten the right amount instead of overeating just because it is there.
Keep up the good work!

You really have to discipline yourself with the buffet's . I like them because I get plenty of good things to eat and can resist the sweets and pasta's . I don't go often though because I prefer eating at home.

Ok, so this is my first post and it's one of celebration that I just had to share. You see I'm one of these people that loved the buffet (all you can eat) I always thought it was great value for money and I always got my money's worth. I would eat until I felt sick, bloated and uncomfortable. I would have a minimum of 2 piled high plates of mainly carbs and fried food, as well as pastries, cheeses, biscuits and 1 serve of fruit so that I coulld tell myself I had had a healthy option.
This weekend was our Xmas breakup at the Gold Coast Casino, which we go to every year and guess what? that's right, buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner and I have to say I knew this was going to be a huge test. I really surprised myself on how much my mentality had changed. I had 90% healthy options with a small taste of the foods I enjoyed. I had only one plate, and didn't even feel like I wanted more. My friends commented on my weight loss and told me how great I looked and my Husband told me how proud he was of me which really helped me stay on track.
I rewarded myself with a shopping spree and bought 2 new dresses which was 1 dress size smaller than when I last shopped 5 weeks ago. It's given me confidence to face the buffet line and know that I can pass up on filling my face until I am sick. I have also learnt to recognise when I have had enough to eat, you know that nice stage of contentment instead of sickness. Onwards and upwards from here.
