Also be aware that many of your friends might be able to cheat from time to time on their diets and still be able to lose weight. Unfortunately you are in the bracket where even a small cheat will show up as fat on your body. I know life can be unfair like that but Heh get over it. If you want to take charge of your life and your shape then you will just need to accept your shape and work with it not against it. If you must cheat on your diet (after all we are human ) then return to your plan immediately afterwards and don’t spiral out of control. Try not to make cheating a regular occurrence as your body shape is rather unforgiving.
