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!!

Down by TWO !!!

How low can I go ???

Today was weigh-in day at the gym. I felt pretty good after loosing one pound last week, as I exercised more, but it took TWO weeks to loose that one stubborn pound.
Imagine to my amazement, as I stepped on the scale this morn, and lost a total of two more pounds !!! Yep, I guess changing up the exercise routine (doing the weight machines first, and doing more reps, adding minutes to the cardio) is starting to pay off.

I now weigh 141 pounds. Down by 23 pounds since October 7. I'm so stoked !!!

To 'celebrate' my accomplishment, I had chicken salad on my bread machine oatmeal/molasses bread. I also had smothered down some snap beans with onions and ham, so I finished up the rest of those. Topped it all off with a cold glass of Diet Coke. I feel really full right now, and so dern excited, -- I'm about to bust.

I worked out for two hours at the gym this mornin... so I'm "good to go" as they say. Now, if I could only find the perfect low carb bread machine bread that actually RISES , I'd be all set !
Have a Blessed Day, everyone! :)

WTG Girl!
Too bad you can't make a lil trip just far enough to stock up on some Healthy life LC bread. You can find it at any Walmart.
Keep up the good work.
