The dog woke me up about an hour ago and I cannot fall back asleep. My sleep patterns are so irregular. I wish I could get solid sleep for a few days in a row :( I made it thru the 4th weekend with no problems. We went up north for a nice, long weekend with my cousin and her husband and new baby. My husband had to work so he could not join us :( Paige and I ate low carb and it was not too bad. I made some of Paige's g0-to snack and she did run out by the last day but she was a trooper and f... Tue, 9 Jul 2013 05:53:17 EST A few days have passed... It's been a few days since I have posted in my blog but they have been busy! And I am happy to report I made it thru the 1st weekend on my new way of eating with success.

Today marks day 3 of the Atkins way and my re-spark to the spark. So far so good. I am pleasantly surprised that I am drinking 128 ounces of water! Seems like I need to tweak my calories a bit but otherwise all is good. Paige is doing ok with her new diet. I am trying to get the extra fa... Wed, 26 Jun 2013 07:25:06 EST Day 2 and How the heck I got here... 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 w... Tue, 25 Jun 2013 09:18:18 EST
