performance: losing 0.5 lb a week
High everyone my name is Vicki and My husband and I just started the Atkins diet on January 29.
I'm married a I have four kids who are all are grown- up. Our three daughters have families of their own now and they gave us six beautiful grandchildren. My son lives with us he was in an auto accident six years ago and has suffered a brain trauma he doesn't talk and is unable to walk. He does know what's going on around him at least we think he does. He watches tv and smiles at our jokes.
I work in my home on the midnight shift as an aide taking care of my son. I love working from home but the midnight shift is hard I've been doing a lot of snacking lately and I need to stop doing it.
Things I like to do : Spend time with my family, reading romance and adult paranormal stories, doing jig-saw puzzles, going camping with my husband, and working as a nursing aide for my son.
I plan on eating 1000 calories and staying around 40g of carbs a day through the week, except for on Fridays I consider that my free day, because my husband and I always go out to dinner for date night.
I'm also trying to quit smoking and I'm using a e-cigarette for the time being to help me.
I'm looking for some buddies to help me on my weight loss journey, so if you need a buddies to help you to please consider me.
1). Lose 2 to 3 lbs. a week and stay under 40g of Net Carbs
2). Remind myself daily on why I'm doing this diet.
* To get myself healthy so that I can enjoy doing things again without getting out of breath.
*. To look better in the mirror and to other people
3). To stop smoking
