Oh, I think I remember when you cited that study, Carolynn
. Was that the sneaky one where they pumped extra stew into the bowl from underneath so people didn't realize how much they were eating? Diabolical, but funny!
, welcome aboard! Good for you for "small and simple". It takes a few trials to determine what's workable for you. As Carolynn said, do try to check in daily (even if you don't have time to post). I find it helps me keep the goals front-of-mind. That and keeping them on my phone's daily to-do list.
A hearty welcome to you, too, KWest
! I'm right there with you on the water consumption. It can be a chore to get it all in! I had to look up MUFAs
"...and don't obsess about the scale..." I like that, Lilbits
! Good luck with the walking goal -- you've made great strides already (haha see what I did there?
