That's not bad in terms of fat and calories, but it's also a lunch without a central theme. There's no real "main" course, just a bunch of snack things. What will happen is that I will end up snacking on it over the course of the morning and then I'll go for a brisk walk at noon to distract myself from the fact that I'm out of food.
I don't think I'd actually trot out the word "diet" for what I am doing, since for the most part I am just watching what I eat and trimming out some of the excess. There are times that I even feel like I am gaming the system a bit, purposely understating some of the foods that I eat in order to feel less guilty about eating them.
On the other hand, yesterday I accidentally cinched up my belt to its smallest setting when I put it on, and recently I have started wearing pants and shirts that I haven't touched in a couple of years because they were too tight. The pounds may not be exactly melting away, but I'm seeing modest gains in spite of myself.
Most importantly I can feel the difference every time I get up and move around. I may never be not not homely, but if I keep at this long enough I may eventually end up not obese.
