Since I last posted, I raised my breakfast calories to about 400 to 450. Wow! What a difference!
It has made it much easier to get my total calories for the day down to around 1500 total for the last few days and to increase the time and intensity of my exercise. And my energy levels have stayed up throughout the day. Hooray!
Bottom line -- I am down to 229 pounds. Hip, hip, hooray!
