Feeling a little like oscar the grouch...

sooooo I am on day 10 of the  ADVOCARE 24 Day Challenge... man a challenge it has been!!
I have been eating tons of fruit,  green veggies, egg whites, tilapia, chicken, and tuna! and all these vitamins. oh yea and NOTHING to drink but water, water, water
NO red meat (steak, ground beef, pork, etc)
NO DAIRY (cheese, milk, yogurt, etc.)
NO SUGAR...at all..none
NO bread..not even whole weat.
I am OVER IT! I also cant have anything with certain oils in it. so my marinades are VERY minimal. The only salad dressing i can have is vinegarette. which I like.. but can get burnt out on it VERY easily.
ANNNNDDD I havent lost anything! WHATTTT?!?! I know so so sooo many people doing this thing and no one has had bad results..no one. they lose at least 5 pounds the first 8-10 days...me i have lost ziiiiiiipp. zero. ZILCH.
Im frustrated to TEARS...
I have 14 days left on this challenge and something has got to give. I'm ready to eat 5 cheeseburgers and 10 milkshakes. If I was actually seeing results I would be completely motivated to stay strong and keep on with this challenge but I'm getting very discouraged and ready to give up:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(

oh yea annnndd Middle Tennessee is in the middle of an INVASION of millions of these 13 year cicada bugs that are ginormus, loud, and annoying. EW. Ew. EWWWW
