My first week has come and gone in a flurry of chicken and salmon. I lost 5 pounds in that first week. I think I actually lost 10 pounds but theres 5 pounds of excrement lodged in my large intestine that refuses to release itself. HA! No seriously, possibly the worst thing about a high protein diet is the serious lack of bowel movements. I went from a twice a day kind of girl to a once every 3 or 4 days if I'm lucky kind of girl. I need some roughage.

I've had some mixed reactions to telling people I'm on a diet. I think a lot of peoples first reaction is something along the lines of disbelief. Like, 'yeah right, you're going on a diet...we'll see about that in a week'. Mostly people seem to make a game of what I can and cannot eat. I guess something about 'protein only diet' confuses them so they just keep coming up with random foods and asking if I can eat that. Or even worse, they question everything they see me eating. I have to stop myself from screaming, 'mind your own business!!' sometimes. 
But...everything is getting easier. Its easier to say no, in fact I don't even have to think about it really. It's easier to avoid the things I  know I can't have. The only time I really came close to slipping was when we were having a barbecue and I was STARVING, but we couldn't get the grill going and theres was all these chips laying around that people were eating and I WANTED ONE SO BAD! But it was more to do with the fact that I was damn hungry and everyone else wasn't phased by the grill not lighting because they could eat chips, meanwhile I have to wait to get my chicken grilled. I almost ate a chip! But I didn't. I really wanted to though.
