Okay,my body does look different, but still...0 pounds.
I eat around 1000-1100 calories per day because I drink at least 2 liters of water, and after that I'm just not hungry at all...
I gotta agree with Geoffers--staying on plan 70% of the time isn't the way to see good results! Without knowing your daily calorie deficit it's hard to predict what your average weekly loss should be, but surely if you stopped "cheating" you'd be able to maintain a 500 cal a day deficit which translates into (on average) a one pound per week loss.
So, I'd think seriously about committing to one month of "cheat free" eating, keeping up on your exercise, and perhaps bumping up that water intake a bit, if you can.
