I'm a SAHM of 4. (25, 23, 20 and 18) Have one left in highschool. Happily married now for 26 years.Like crafty stuff and quilting. My favorite book series is Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I was quite athletic as a teen but piled it on when having kids and stress issues through the years. My hubby and I saw the WSJ article http://online.wsj.com/news/art...
and decided to give Atkins a try. Nothing else had seemed to work. I've had a great first week and am excited to continue and see more progress. I want to be able to get back out and enjoy life again and wear normal sized clothes again ! LOL

Can I change my entry weight?
Weigh in as often as you feel comfortable with. I weigh in in the evening cause it will give me a good idea where my weight will be when I weigh in in the morning.

You can go back and correct/edit your weigh-ins. Click on the "My Fat Secret" tab above and then look to the right side of the page and look under the heading "MY Journal". Click on "My Weight History" and on the right side of the page (a little lower down)you will see the option under "My Diet" to "Enter Historical Weight Entries". You can go to specific dates and then edit your weight entry. Was that clear as mud ? LOL

Atkins talk
Mummy dee is right. If you are doing Atkins correctly you will not be hungry. If you wake up hungry, you did not eat enough ( DO NOT count calories) the night before. If hungry by mid day you need to make your breakfast a little bigger and make sure your snack between meals is always a higher percentage/ratio of protein/fats to carbs/starches. I couldn't believe how fantastic I felt when I started this diet. I thought I was doing something wrong ! LoL. I can't imagine going back now to how I used to eat. You can do this. Just fine tune and tweek your protein intake a little more.

Wall Street Journal Article : The Questionable Link Between Saturated Fat and Heart Disease
My hubby showed this to me and it really opened my eyes and it gave us the motivation to try Atkins.
