This blog is dedicated to the low-carb menu challenge presented by Jimmy Moore. I'm living the Louisiana low carb lifestyle, where low-carb is the new way to go ! I live southwest of New Orleans, Louisiana....have three awesome kids. We are deep down in the heart of sweet Cajun Country, where we kick back and relax, go hunting, fishing, or make groceries! My doctor told me that my blood pressure numbers were getting too high, so I had to loose weight. She challenged me with ten pounds in three months. That was October 7, 2008. I lost 26 pounds !!! In February of 2011, I found that I had gained a few pounds more than I would have liked, weighing in at 170 pounds. I had to get back into the swing of living the low carb life again !! I am loving the 'low-carb' style and wish to contiue it . I exercise three times a week at the gym, and off the 'off' days, I learn to RELAX !! November 2011, finds me in different circumstances -- a new lifestyle, great community of friends and a challenge to keep that 45 pounds that I lost OFF. Feel free to read my blog, browse around, or just sit a spell!!

On The "Weigh" Down ...

Today I went to the gym ! I lost two more pounds !

I was beginning to wonder if I was exercising enough at home on my day off from the gym... guess I have not been doing too bad !

For lunch today, I had a Subway Salad (12 - 14 carbs) and two packs of small crackers on the side (4 carbs).

At the gym I exercised on the treadmill machine, the elliptical, and the bicycle for 20 minutes each = 1 hour. Then, I worked on the weight machines for another 45 minutes. I FEEL GREAT !!
Weigh in days are always scary... When I began my weight loss on 10/07/2008, I was 164 lbs. Today I weighed in at 146 -- for a total of 18 pounds in 2 months :) My goal is to be 140 pounds by Christmas -- Who knows , huh ?? LOL.

For supper I had fresh steamed broccilli & chicken salad sandwich. For a grand total of 52 carbs :)
