Hi, Novak! Congrats on reaching the 130's!
I have had a stumbling block. I cheated for the first time (as far as a major cheat goes) yesterday. It was my husband's birthday. He has been after me almost since the beginning to quit the diet because he says "It's not healthy!" He has been my only detractor since the beginning. It was his birthday, so I had a thin slice of cake and half a scoop of frozen vanilla yogurt. Today I am doing Phase 1 to get back in the saddle. This morning I woke up with major joint pain and tingling in my right hand from arthritis. It has not bothered me while on this diet. Wow! I didn't realize what a little sugar could do as far as inflammation goes. Makes me want to stick to the diet even more!
