Positive Changes
You go, girl. You can do this. I was about your age when I too finally tackled my weight/eating problems once and for all. I was shockingly successful, so I think you've hit on the magic age!!

dining out
Order sensibly and when your meal comes ask for a to-go box. Before taking a bite put half your meal in the box and take it home for yourself for another meal or for someone else. The server will think nothing of it because they've seen this trick before. Your tablemates might give you looks, but just stare 'em down.

Disapointed with myself
Number one don't be disappointed in yourself. Why would you be disappointed in yourself? You're a beautiful human being. Human beings like food, some of us more than others. Ugh. My advice is to stop thinking about what to eat. The more I think about food, the more I eat food. Get a little outdoor exercise. Walking biking jogging chasing the kids around. Then think about that. Then you'll want to more of it. The fresh air and exercise regulates my appetite - makes me crave sweets less and nutritious foods more.
