I find that weekends are my hardest part of the protocol. All of my friends want to go to bars or out to dinner, and my boyfriend eats like a 6 year old boy at an elementary class party. I have to plan really well or I will fall victim to the cheats and fail.
I can also honestly say that during this diet, I have not cheated once. I have made a conscious effort to really give all of myself into this diet and it is slowly paying off. Thats a key word, slowly. The first week I lost a whopping 6 pounds, and am now averaging 2-3 pounds a week. That's great though! I haven't gained and I am slowly approaching my goal with every ounce lost.
