Day 2 and How the heck I got here...

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

I have been an on and off Spark People member for a few years. Yesterday was a day of change for my family. So, I re-joined spark people and started fresh. It was a day of change because my husband and I started eating the Atkins Way. I am thrilled my husband is joining me on this new adventure. The reason we decided to start eating the Atkins was was to support my daughter. Paige is 15 and was diagnosed with epilepsy 1.5 years ago and we still are working on full seizure control. Yesterday we started a diet therapy with her in hopes of seeing better control. We have met with a dietician and and I researched more than I care to admit. Paige was ready and willing to try the therapy and so here we are. Paige is using the Modified Atkins Diet approach, which is the induction phase of Atkins with a modification of increasing the fats even more then what Atkins recommends. We made it through day 1 and I am ready to see what day 2 brings.

    Excellent! It's wonderful that you and your husband are both on board. That makes it feel like a family lifestyle rather than a burden of some kind. Here's to glowing health for all of you!
