Enjoy.... if you don't over cook it, it will make your pants rise.
I dream of a day when chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
you should eat more vegetables. essentials nutrients and fiber (which is great for your GI and losing weight)

cut the butter and bacon. flavor? yes. healthy? no.
Bacon and natural butter are much better for you than hybrid grain products. Gluten is satans work.... did I mention I live on a farm which makes me a major hippocrit because I don't eat the stuff I raise but I had huge health issues before when I did and I don't now.... the problem is not that they are leaner, it is that gluten based products irritate the bowel and then aggrivates your hormones creating diabetics and obesity. Plus it throws the liver off creating high lipids counts making some folks have to take statin drugs for high cholestoral. Most folks are gluten "intolerant" and some are actually allergic. Lactose has a similar effect in some cases. I guess the bases is eat what you can digest and you will live a healthy life but you have to figure that our for yourself.
I find that a little hot sauce mixed in with 8 oz of low sodium veggie juice really helps fill me up, especially at breakfast. Low cal, lots of good stuff in it, and very filling.
Just finished the meal...
You were right, my pants did rise. That was delicious
We are coming for you Bama!
Awesome!!!!! I have other pant raisers just ask
I'm try to be pretty strict when I'm not on vacation. Here's my typical breakfast-lunch routine:
Early AM Workout (Creates calorie deficiency) (5-7 days a week)
1. 30 mins cardio (or approximately 500 calories burned)
2. 20-30 mins weightlifting (I do Day 1: shoulders, triceps, chest (2-3 exercises each) Day 2: abs, legs (3-4 abs exercises, 2-3 leg exercises) Day 3: Back and Biceps (2-3 exercises)
Post Workout Recovery--Protein shake (I prefer the all natural no fake sugar mixes) and granola bar
Lunch: Grape Nuts with sliced bananas and maple syrup for sweetness
Dinner: You can indulge a little bit more here since you have not amassed a huge calories count. I stay away from fried foods unless it's something I absolutely love. Soups and stews in the winter are my favorite, but any sort of seafood is my favorite. Learn new fun recipes to keep things interesting. Eating healthy does NOT have to be boring. In fact, you'll find a lot of the fast food to be crap once you start eating real food.
Dessert: Limit yourself to once a week maximum.
It sounds like you get plenty of exercise. For me, it's important to journal what I eat a particular day to see where mistakes are being made with my diet. Overall, don't obsess about food. Just get yourself into a routine and don't look at it as a temporary fix. It's cliche, but you really have to commit for a lifestyle change.

I don't count calories, but then again I'm not a woman.
ahhh yes, nothing as manly as obesity and heart disease
first I did this

How do you get a down vote for giving advice that someone asked for?
You're correct if your only two options are to count calories or be a fat ass. I choose to lift and run.
White bread and simple sugars should be avoided especially if you have had a weight problem in the past.
I cut breads, pastas, and simple sugars for the most part out of my diet. I was also doing P90X and I went from a fat tub of lard 240 to a lean cut 174.
I am now trying to bulk back up with good weight, I currently weigh 195, but the weight I have gained is nearly all muscle. My abs and obliques still are visible.

Diet is the number one key to losing weight. Aerobics help, but Diet is king!
Wow I am shocked there is soo much feedback on this question. This is pretty awesome. With all the right wingers on here I would have thought only raw meat would be the order of the day, so its good to see we are a bit more civilized than I thought.
For me its cottage cheese and peaches for lunch along with a grilled chicken breast or the soup of the day. Never any bread.
Congrads on the weight lose. You are right, diet is most important. +1
Thanks, I've addded some rice cakes and some strength training 3 times a week since I posted this. I like seeing what others are eating just for ideas and it's good to see that there are many like you.
