You can count your calories if you want but you probably don't have to yet- just record what you eat and if you don't lose weight, cut out a little something until you start.

You pretty much need some white flour unless you want to eat a brick, because the whole grains don't have anywhere near as much gluten, which is what makes the bread able to support itself.

I fit into my leather pants today, which I haven't been able to do in 2 years. I've lost 3 1/2 inches off my hips and 1 1/2 inches off my waist. Doesn't seem like a lot, but that's in less than 2 months. I need to stop thinking of things in terms of dramatic weight loss, but in how much those 5 total inches of fat in 2 months add up. If I lose 5 inches of fat every 2 months, then I'll be at my target measurements in a little over a year.
I figure after Lent, white flour will be a monthly treat or so. No more indulging in a pizza, a pie, a cake, and cookies all in one month - I'll pick my one portion of white flour treat and stick to that. Not being in crying, screaming pain will definitely help with that resolution.
