Notifications new
I agree with shmiller, it's facebook influenced. I think FS would do better to fix all the bugs in the existing FS rather than branching out and emulating other social media. It's easy to turn off in your settings, but why not notify when you are rolling out something new?

Following fatsecrets RDI
I changed my RDI to 1400 this morning from the 1600 FS had calculated. I changed it because I rarely go over 1400. I only started Atkins in lated November so I am by no means an expert, but I am in agreement with liv001. The only time the calories come in to play is when you stall, then Atkins recommends taking a look at how much fat or protein you've been taking in.

Sleep and slim
I'm chiming in a couple days late on this topic. I've been on Atkins for a couple of months now and started waking up at 5:30 early on, now it's 4:30ish. At first, I tried to stay in bed and go back to sleep, but now I just go with it. I've been taking cod liver oil and thought maybe the omegas were "feeding" my brain better. (They certainly have improved my mood. Who knew?) One thing for sure is I am not the night owl any more. My bedtime used to be one, now it's ten. So in reality I am getting the same amount in hours of sleep, just adjusted. There definitely is an early bird effect in play.

I screwed up !!
Thynes, awesome advice. I shot myself in the foot last week by using the balsamic vinaigrette from Bob Evans on an otherwise healthy salad. Luckily I didn't slather, it was loaded, I mean loaded with carbs (from sugar I assume). Since then I have been looking at the nutrition information for the foods I eat at some of the places I grab to-go meals. And redgirl1974, good on you for learning something new about yourself, coming to the itty-bitty-carb-committee (lol) and making a plan to handle it going forward! Keeping the fridge stocked with your own version of carry-out (like you said: boiled eggs, chicken breasts etc.) will help insure against future "I screwed up" moments. Now the bad news: you'll screw up in new ways. J-play but Rome wasn't built in a day, and your future won't be either. You are building a great foundation!

February was a cruel month; finally feel like I've pulled past that. In addition to the (self-inflicted) weight gain and subsequent loss, I think I hit ...
