Well today hasn't started out great. My left shoulder is hurting me a lot today. It hurts to pick up my children. A couple months ago I had problems with my right sholder and I went to see the orthopedic guy and he gave me a shot and it's been fine since. I have a feeling that these shoulder issues are related to my stroke because I've read some articles about shoulder problems with Stroke Survivors. I think I'm going to wait a couple of days before making an appointment.

Back to the topic of my Atkins Diet. I am still making good progress on my diet. I have lost another pound since I last weighed in last Friday. I'm hoping for three pounds this week. If that is my final number I will have lost 15 pounds in my first month. I'm sticking to the diet and I don't feel tempted at all to cheat. My husband has fallen off the deep end though. I feel bad but I'm still encouraging him to get back on the diet. He said he needs one cheat day where he can eat whatever and then he will get back on the horse. I move forward. I don't want to cheat because I have my goal in mind. I have faith that he will get back on the diet soon.
