update: i've definitely lost a good amount of body fat % over the last few months. i've started to skip breakfast and have had good results- i don't really miss the extra calories much and can function fine without it. haven't really had too many huge eating degenerate moments...last weekend i went to taco bell after eating a large dinner (sure didn't need that)...but no big pizza fiascos. i'll be going on vacation here in a bit so maybe i'll gain some back...but i'm extremely happy with my results. thanks to everyone again.
