      You’re welcome! I compromised. Instead of eating it every day, I’m only allowed to add it to things. Which means… I can’t just snack on cheese. That will cut it in half!

        Ha, yes, that was the problem. Every Sat and Sun, W and I would have crackers, cheese and fig jam. We’d split an entire block of cheese from the cheese shop, trying something new all the time. Then quiche for brunch. Mexican once per week. Pasta with cheese once per week. It was EVERYwhere. I’m also 41 now, so that’s just part of the problem. I’m sure you’ve got time to worry less.

      Thanks! You’re exactly right. I was eating it EVERY day… so I’ve compromised. I’m back to 5 to 6 days a week working out, only 5 drinks per week and half as much cheese/red meat/desserts. That should fix it.
