I see so many parallels between your and my routine. I also have been eating several small meals a day, and I allow a "cheat" when need be. Actually I just try and recognize what my body can and can't handle (which meant taking a few risks, meaning eating things I ought not should had for the purpose of experimentation) but it paid off. Like I can get away with something hearty in the morning now... which I previously would had not taken the chance.
I have not been working out though. I walk a ton, and so far that's enough. I build muscle pretty fast and if I train I won't see the loss and get frustrated. I know it sounds counter productive but its working. 30 lbs down 71 to go.
Either way, congratz on your loss
