Hi and welcome back! I don't think I was here last winter but I hope I can help. I keep leaving and coming back and I know exactly where you're standing. It always seems difficult when I think about cutting calories but I often find that I just make it huge in my head. I keep thinking that I'll slowly ease into it but when I really decide to lose more weight, I don't have to.

There's nothing wrong with not eating many small meals during the day. I have the same problem with my family. I always have most of my calories for lunch, which is the biggest meal of the day here. But I measure everything and I eat normal portions, so I usually eat anywhere from 500 to 700 calories. So, that is one thing you could try.

Intermittent Fasting is another thing that might work for you. If you eat 300 calories for breakfast and normally eat around 1800, skipping breakfast would put you at ~1500. I don't understand it but it's easier to not eat because my 8 hours are up than it is to not eat because I can't afford the extra calories. It helps me not give into cravings.

I can't think of anything else. It's only 200+ calories, though, you can definitely do it!
