Nik, that might be a good call on my daily desert, though I don't use the term "cheat" because there is no "cheating" in my new lifestyle as I am not on a diet. I am simply reducing and monitoring my calorie intake and trying to eat "normal" foods within certain guidelines.

I'm really not doing anything different than I've done to average a 3lb a week loss--I know the loss slows as one gets lighter, but I'm still well over 300 so its got to take some significant energy to keep the lights and furnace on.

I have decided to forgo the drinking of any beer this week--that will save 1K cals or more right there. Perhaps it will make a difference.

Thanks for the encouragement and we'll see how things look at next week's weigh-in.

Michael
