Need Help!!!!!!!
OK. First, Take a deep breath. Twins... Congrats. BUt remember your twice as busy as any new mother.
Ok now for your exam. Your a mother of twins. Time, well . isn't your own. If you can get help for a break, them take it. If not. Can the exam be delayed? If not, then, do what I did with 3 kids. Late nights after there in bed. I got NO sleep, but I got it done. And I failed. Not with the kids, but the exams. Then I waited to schedule time with someone to take the kids and then I .. well slept the first few weeks, then worked on my schooling. (I hope this helps and gives you as idea) What worked for me, might work for you. But what works for you, well, will work for you. Try different schedules and see what works

Think I found out why I eat
I'm a guy, just a guy, 50+ and, gonna put myself out there and just spill my guts and be honest, if thats ok. I live with someone who has a lot of medical issues. I knew that 24 years ago when we met, but I was in love. Still am, now have 3 more little ones to support.. But working 2 jobs, cooking dinner, and doing the every day chores. it's not that bad, but not, ..just soooo tired. my escape is food. not a good reason, but something I have for me. I need to stop that, It looks like I'm going to be the one to take care of ... just have to say, health reasons are not good, but I WON'T GIVE UP. I d\have taken in cooking all good foods to help, and ... researching what I can do. how excerise, food, anything can help. But doing 2 jobs to keep the bills in check, and they are, but.... guess since nobody can see me here.. I can vent. in front of family and friends, I need to be strong... but close the doors..I'm just a man. Sorry, I just needed to express . Thanks

not losing in 2 weeks
Hi, I'm on Atkins also. From what I was told by others who been on it, time to time your weight doesn't show any change, but if you think about how your clothes are fitting, you might notice that you still are, in a way. Your body is adjusting to the new you. Your clothes will be loser, and you might notice a slight difference in your body shape. Keep up the good work and you will start to see more weight coming off.
Hope that helps
