My biggest suggestion is just to stick with it. The craving will only last so long but the benefits will far outway caving into the temptation. Keep thinking back to the way you felt when you stepped on the scale and saw the 15 pounds gone. Every WI gives me the drive to get to my next WI. Luckily, there will be some cravings that you can still feed. If you get a craving for a type of food, eat something in the same flavor profile. For example, I love mexican food. If I get a craving for mexican, I can cook up a little chicken and pablano peppers and add a little cumin, and put them in lettuce leaves like little tacos. Toss on some cilantro and maybe some home-made pico and you're set. You get the mexican food to fill the craving without the cheating. You'll thank yourself when you step on the scale.
