DH shed 95 pounds ( me, 25 :harumph: )
have done this was that I was DH personal chef and monitored his food intake. He only ate what I gave him and I kept a food/exercise journal.

...

Montreal is a bit far a field for me, but I can PM you what we ate if you like

I was trying not to eat before I went to sleep this morning, so I figured I would just eat a piece of a Cadbury fruit and nut bar and a big glass of milk.

Funny how those Cadbury bars come in 1 piece.

I couldn't stop.

I try very hard to not eat when I get home from work and have another shift coming up. Some days it's just too hard. I had two pieces of Sea Salt Dark Chocolate covered Caramels.

No apologies necessary...chocolate, especially dark chocolate is good for you.

I was content with my regular breakfast for like over a year now:
Chex cereal with 8-12almonds (yes, i count because they aren't cheap when consumed daily), with soymilk and a scoop of vegan protein powder.

But today (probably because I had it before bed and had a stomach ache too), well I ate it, but I wasn't excited about it at first.

anyway, so that's why I am looking here!! :D

This was hilarious! I JUST maybe two weeks ago, had one of these! Never even heard of them before that day! Yes, yes, it's a big no-no on my diet, but I really had no other option. I needed to fill my belly...(see below)

My second fav, especially if they're artisanal, HUGE Caramels!!

(see above) although,...I only did have just a piece/bite...but that's because I had a Snickers before that!
actually, the Snickers was a bit earlier (we were traveling ok?? ), and so it was a KitKat before the Cadbury, but i needed it! :D haha j/k

And the similarities between us continue to grow. When I was at sea while in the U.S. big-Grey-Canoe Club, floating around on aircraft launching canoes, DW would send me a care package containing my, at the time, four favorite candy bars, along with other goodies. These were Cadbury Fruit and Nut, Caramellow, Cadbury DairyMilk, and Cadbury Dark. They are still among my favorites. I don't eat them for breakfast though, and rarely eat candy now (heavy sigh).

Been eating poached eggs with toast and bacon lately, though today was oatmeal.
