Carol, the bleu cheese is okay, just limit the amount. Check your cheese sticks for added sugar. The best kind, I've found, are the part-skim mozzerella ones he recommends in the book--2% cheddar has too much fat. A Daily Dish (you can sign up to receive these free from the SBD site) recently talked about cheese--you want one with less than 6g. of fat. I like Cabot's 50% less fat cheddar cheese. They even have deli slices, which I find easier to get on a salad than taking out a grater or cutting.
You might want to switch your nuts to almonds, which have less fat and have more nutrients and good effects. You can have 15. Try eating them in the day. Do you eat dinner too early and stay up late so your energy drags? You might want to have dinner later to balance things out. Also, look for things to do (preferably away from your eating husband). Take a big bottle of water with you and swig from it when you feel like eating (I've drank a gallon of water at one sitting this way...
), and invest in some sugar free gum to chew when you get desperate (but remember to count the calories as part of your 75).
And remember that 4 pounds is a great loss!
