Well, today I blew past my protein goal... I underestimated the protein content of an item. I am not that bummed, because I know that there will be times that I do not live up to my goals- especially in the beginning when I am adjusting to a new diet. My diet is not as restricted as it probably will be once I begin the Kuvan trial (or, more likely, after it has been determined whether I respond to Kuvan or not). Anyone on a new diet? If anyone else is beginning a new diet, please comment here... Let's share our stories- successes and failures. Successes are great, and failures only remain failures if we do not learn from them. Otherwise, if we learn from them, failures become lessons. Today, for me, was a lesson. For those on a diet- KEEP IT UP! Hang in there... It is worth it. It is very hard to get back on the diet. I wish I never went off the diet.
