Gosh, I guess I'm not perfect, kind of screwed up this weeks heading. :)

Well, yesterday was a really good one for me - back onplan. I do Atkins Low Carb because it seems to be the only thing that makes me feel good and works for me.

Saturday, Feb. 3rd

Breakfast - 2 scrambled eggs

Lunch - in a rush, so just had an Atkins Advantage Bar. They are filling and come in handy once in awhile.

Snack - a piece of Brie

Dinner - grilled burger with cheese, brussel sprouts with a tiny bit of butter and a small salad with Blue cheese dressing.

Snack - a few pork rinds, half a leftover burger.

I feel so much better today. So far am having a really good one and hope you are too. Will post later. Love, G :)
