Having a rough time sticking to the SCD?
This is my second time around, the first time seemed like cake compared to this time. I have tried over and over and can't seem to stick to it for very long. It's very discouraging, I know it's ultimately up to ME to make the change....but for people who have struggled then eventually stuck to it, what made the difference??
Any advice would be helpful

I was doing the SCD for a week fews and cheating a little here and there all the time and was realizing how stupid it was for me to be restricting myself and worrying about a diet if I was still eating random stuff, and not seeing results because of it. I don't have much weight to lose so I can't get away with kind of doing the diet.
My choices would have been go to eating whatever I want, (fat city)! Or actually give the SCD an honest go. I obviously chose the latter and I've had 2 weeks of really solid sticking to it. I'm seeing much better results now and kick myself for not trying this hard earlier.
Idk if you're this way as well, but I'm an all or nothing person. Having a score of no cheats all week (until cheat day of course) really helps me stick to not even having a bite of offending foods, whereas cheating even a little makes me feel guilty and in a "fuck it" mood, which could include eating more random bad stuff bc I messed up already!
Not cheating also makes cheat day sooooo much more awesome. I do mine on Sunday, and by Saturday night I'm like a kid who's going to Disneyland in the morning mixed with a starving lion charging its cage trying to get a baby goat or some shit.
Don't overwhelm yourself with huge goals. Give yourself the goal of sticking to the diet super hardcore for one week, until cheat day. Just one week. Make sure you're taking measurements and pictures if you're not already. Although you'll probably will get good results from a strict week, the point is moreso to show yourself that you CAN be strict and that it is NOT impossible to stick to the diet. And knowing that you can will help you do it for another week, again, and again, and again.
