b-1/2 cup of rolled oats w/ raisens & 1/2 cup of almond milk
l-Large Kale salad with greens and apple cider vinagar dressing
l- baked potato & corn with salasa
Most of the time for supper I have a bowl of soup with carrots potatoes and sweet potatoes and other starchy vegs it home made and made with veg broth, and dice tomatoes
and then I have a fruit and later some air popped popcorn.
Exercise is about 2 mile walk at the gym or jumping on the mini trampoline for about 1/2 hr. My work is a desk job so I don't get to much exercise during the day mostly after I get home do I exercise. I am still having about 2 cups a coffee a day and drinking water after that. Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thank you!

I typically make a large pot of Minestrone soup and fill it mostly with vegetables and perhaps 8oz of white and red kidney beans. That's my go to meal. 1/2 cup of oatmeal in the morning then maybe a cup of steamed vegetables for lunch. For dinner I have a large salad of greens and spinach with vinegar dressing, followed by a cup of steamed vegetables and then a cup of the soup. I play starches by ear. If I really get hungry I'll make a few small roasted potatoes. Alternate dinner is the same but beans and brown rice instead of soup. For a splurge I'll have a burrito on a non fat corn tortilla of pinto beans and pico de gallo. That's about it. That and I work out at least 2 hours a day, walk for at least 1 1/2 hours and do ranch work for 4-6 hours. So far I'm averaging a little over 1 lb a day loss.
I don't really count calories but it varies from 500-1200-1600 a day depending on how I feel. It has gotten to where I enjoy feeling hungry. Just keep at it. Anything you do is better than what you were doing before...
