Thanks everyone for the encouragement! You're all so right, I should've hit the forum when that bad stuff happened to cause me to throw in the towel and run off for my off-protocol choices. I need to stick to this! Another thing I'm struggling with is forcing down all that water.... I am SO TIRED of being in the bathroom! I swear, we're going through toiliet paper doubly fast from all the peeing I do, haha!
