I have talked with so many people (mostly family) who will admit that they have quit on their diet (in whatever form that may be) because it was harder than they thought it would be. How disappointing! Think of all the things that would never have been accomplished in our lifetimes if everyone just quit when they hit a bump in the road!!
The thing is, that many of us are trying to change over 20 years of unhealthy lifestyle habits! That's HARD!!! Anyone who comes into something like this expecting it to be easy has another thing coming. But look at it this way, think of the amount of pride that comes with accomplishing a difficult goal versus an easy one.
My dad (a VERY smart man) told me when I was little that nothing worth having comes easy. So, expect the bumps in the road, expect the difficult times, they are NORMAL!!! We wouldn't have started down this road if the end results weren't worth it!
