Or, a bowl of Rice Krispies, with milk and honey is always tasty. I had that three days back, first time in 20 years. I was amazed at how great it tasted.

I will take the bowl of Rice Krispies minus the honey. No sugar please. What I ended up with was a very small strip steak cooked rare in butter. No salt. Just enough to keep me from munching later.

And keeping track of what you eat. It does make you aware of when you go off track. Keep up the good work. And remember everytime you post here of your breakfast or lunch or whatever, I am following your progress. Keep up the good work. Don't you feel better with those 40#'s gone? I am just so proud of you.

Thank you to everyone for all the positive support! My legs are sore tonight so I am taking a break from the gym for 1 night. Keeping my meals between 300-400 calories is getting easier. Looking at it as a total lifestyle change that I can live with.
