Hey Leenie, I understand going over on calories, especially when it's cold like that. I know when its really cold here we are all so much hungrier. I don't know if its cause you want to warm up, or bec you're burning more calories trying to stay warm or what, but it has got to be hard to stay low calorie up north when its cold! But still, you're calories weren't bad, but I know they were up a little more then you wanted.

Yes....I'm thinking. Basically I'm already doing Sugarbusters (which is just like South Beach as far as I can see, except that there is no stages, but maybe somebody knows something I don't know), so I'm thinking about giving Atkins another go.

Right now I'm just trying to figure out if I can really give Atkins all I've got, while I am so busy taking care of my mom's family. Along with taking care of my grandmother, now my grandfather (her hubby) has lung canger, and is having 1/4th of his lung removed on Tuesday, with a 6 week recovery. I know I can only take it one day at a time, but I'm just trying to take everything in and giving it all some thought.

Life is never dull is it!

hugs,
cathy

Gee Cathy, when it rains it pours.. I know you give alot of yourself to your family but girl, its time to take care of you. Remember the old saying, if Mama aint happy then nobody's happy. Well if Mama aint healthy then nobody will be. They depend on you, so don't forget its "you time." Above it all, your #1. Life's to short to put it aside. Okay off my soap box OY.

Checking out your weekly food log. I would like to know if you will share the brand and type of cheese you eat, croutons and if your mashed potatoes are made from scratch or from a pkg.mix?

Leenie,
I have a big problem with night time snacking also.That is why I consume most of my calories I think. Tonight I have had at least 10 or 12 Murrays Sugar Free ginger snaps with my hot tea. What has helped you cut back on this bad habit? I'm open to all suggestions. Also have problem with eating during the wee hours when I can't sleep.
