I am a 41yr old mother of two girls (13,15). I survived a stroke in January 2011. I am trying to get healthy again to lower my risk for another stroke and prevent diabetes.

I am here to keep account of my eating and exercise while following Atkins. This isn't a "diet" for me, this is a lifestyle change, I am done yoyoing my weight and am losing for good this time.

I am home on disability right now so I am always open to chat. I welcome feedback and ideas. I am always looking for buddies who like to connect and really support each other.

So, Who Takes What???
I take MegaRed, calcium, and a multi-vitamin. When I see my doctor next I will be asking if there are other vitamins I should be taking.

Weight Loss and Ketosis
Go to Atkins.com and look up this thread:

"Why do Stalls happen? Here is what I've learned."

I found it so helpful, it is long but well worth the read. Hope it helps.

The number on the right of your diet calendar should be between 500-1000 for weight loss. That will balance your activity and calories.

Anything under 500 is starvation mode....
