I am getting frustrated...I have been on SBD since New Year's and have been doing really well to stay on track without any cheating. All of my family knows that I am dieting, but seem to forget it when it interferes with what they want. For example, my husband and I were invited out to lunch by his parents to go to Famous Dave's this weekend. This is one of their favorite restaurants, as well as mine, but there is hardly anything on the menu that is SBD friendly. So now I am torn...I either have to ask them to go somewhere else, have something that is not on the diet or barely legal, or not go at all. Either way I am going to alienate someone! I do not want to cheat on the diet, but am tired of drawing attention to the fact that I am on a diet...again. Even my own husband is frustrated because he feels like he has to sacrifice what he wants because there is nothing SBD friendly at the place he really wants to go. He is usually very supportive, but there are moments where I think he is testing me!
The most frustrating part is that I have lost approximately 25 lbs. (10 lbs before New Year's on WW) and no one seems to have noticed! I still have a lot further to go (about 50 lbs.) to get to where I want to be. Instead of hearing about how good I am doing, I am just hearing about how my diet is holding other people back from getting what they want. Why doesn't anyone understand that you can't be successful on a diet when you aren't following it!? Most of all, I am just tired and embarrassed that it seems that I am always on a diet, but don't seem to be losing any weight. Can anyone else relate? Also, I have been on the diet about 6 weeks now...Does 15 lbs lost in 6 weeks sound about right (2 weeks on P1, 4 weeks and counting on P2)? I've gone down about two pants sizes too...I guess I just need some validation.
