I can totally relate. Thankfully I haven't had too many gatherings where I've had nothing proper to eat. The key there is "not to many gatherings". My family never gets together unless I have people to my house - and hubbys family gatherings are always surrounded by India food. And I have the SAME issues with the Friday success stories. Can they please post one that talks about how freakin' hard it is to not stray off into chocolate chip cookie land? It seems like all the stories have the same theme (or at least all the ones that I remember) and that theme is always something like this: I can't believe how EASY the weight came off!! I lost 50 pounds in 6 months and I never felt hungry or deprived! ............... WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE???? I'm sorry - but they are obviously the exception - NOT the norm. I want to see a story about a middle aged woman fighting health issues, with a non-primal spouse ----- and I want to hear about all the ups and downs and struggles she went through to get to her perfect place of health and wellness.

But they still don't talk about how difficult it is to stay the course. When I get there - and I submit my success story - I'm going to be truthful about the struggles!
Okay - rant over.
