I found out that I can't eat just oatmeal in the morning at 8am. I was totally starving by 10. So today I had oatmeal and an apple with a little milk. It really hit the spot. Eating right and exercising....I'm really doing it yall!!!!!!

It's good that you are experimenting until you find what works for you.

I would not like to eat only oatmeal for breakfast either. That's hardly any protein. If I don't eat quite a bit of protein my body is not happy. My breakfast always includes 2 egg-whites (nearly 8g of protein).

Curious... what kind of oatmeal are you eating? The only way that I have found oatmeal to fill me up for the long haul is to pair it with fruit and nuts while make 2 packs of good instant (Better Oats) or at least a half cup of steel cut. The weight control oatmeal packets and the like just don't cut it for me. When I am tracking, I try to keep breakfast at 300-400 calories at least to make sure it has some staying power. Just a packet of oatmeal is about 120 calories depending on the brand and that could be the issue.

Hope you find a breakfast plan that works for you! There is nothing wrong with being hungry mid morning if you plan for it.
