As I am reading the New Atkins book again, I'm learning that the plan is actually a high protein/high fiber way of eating. Atkins is a way of balancing the protein/fat/carb-fiber. I had a problem for a few days this week getting the carbs and fiber count to balance because I really didn't understand that this is the goal of Atkins way of eating. So I will be adding fiber into my way of eating now to get my net carbs around 20 grams and get my fiber grams as high as possible within that amount of carb grams.

Good news is that my weight has been the same for 3 days and my fasting blood sugar was normal this morning at 93 mg. This is great progress and feels great to know that it is working.

Have a nice weekend everyone.

DETERMINATION keeps me going when the going gets tough.

I can believe that "I can" or I can believe that "I can't," and either way I will be right.
I choose to believe I CAN!!!
