Thanks for your kind comments.

One thing I forgot to say in my original post is how *untraumatic* this lifestyle change has been compared to my previous diets. I'm hungry only occasionally, and if I get hungry enough I "borrow" from the next day's calories and pay it back. I allow myself occasional treats, within reason, but I always strive to pay back the excess calories--that's my "fail-safe" to guard against going off the deep end. I basically eat anything I want, but I always go through the thought process of "is this worth not eating something else later?". Many times, the answer is "no" and that solves the problem. Sometimes the answer is "yes", and, 90% of the time I've indulged, it has been worth it.
