I did just that years ago, no it was not easy, it a year for my mouth to stop watering when I crossed paths with certain foods. I refused to give up, knowing I had to make changes about how I saw food, and what it is for. We are all different and what works for one person will not necessarily work for another. I have decided to seek out some tools which may aid in not only taking the weight off, but keeping it off.
The first thing that must be done is to only keep healthy foods in your home, I have two boys, 15 and 13, and they eat what is here. They do not need to be eating unhealthy any more than we do, so do not use children as an excuse to keep unhealthy foods.
While I do not stick to any plans I write down this may be a good route for others to take.
