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!!

There's a New Kid In Town -- Mc Donald's

Our newest neighbor on the block -- Mc Donald's just opened up this week, in our quaint, rural town. Dollar General was the main stay until Mickey D's came along.. My momma would say "Its the best thang since sliced bread !"... Well, today I went exploring our newest restaurant... but I should have stayed HOME !!

Who would have thought, their Sausage Patti and Eggs would total 16 carbs combined ! To add insult to injury, I had TWO servings of the eggs (2 carbs) and ONE of the Sausage patti -- a whopping 14 carbs !! So my total carb intake for BREAKFAST ALONE WAS 16 carbs.... I nearly fainted when I just read this !!


Come on a 14 carb sausage patti ? what the heck is in it ?

I'm a very disappointed in myself for making such POOR choices.



For supper, I had roast beef tips on two slices of wheat bread (8 carb per slice), so this totaled up to be rough estimate of 20 carbs, (YES, I had the gravy too !)

So, 36+ carbs persay, is not a BAD total, but this is only for two meals !

I've wised up today -- know your carb intake BEFORE you go to Mc Donald's

The Carb count for a sauage patty is 1 carb each. I think you looked in the wrong column. I looked twice.
