About Me

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!!

30 pounds -- gone !!!!! Friday the 13th... bad luck??. . NOT for me !!

Yes, today I decided to weigh in. I've lost a total of 30 pounds since Oct. 7, 2008 !!!

I now weigh 134. Whew. It took me an entire month to loose the last three pounds. I'm so excited :)

So Four months, one week = 30 pounds. Who would have thought when I started low carbing, I'd hit the 30 pound mark ??

Life IS good. LOL (thoughts of celebrating with LOTS of carbs are running rampant through my mind right now, but I'm saving THAT celebration for my birthday on Feb. 27th :)))

So what did I eat today ? For lunch, I had a mixed meat sandwich on wheat toast (turkey, ham, etc) and right now I am enjoying a very cold sugar free popsicle.

I hope everyone has a Blessed a day of Friday the 13th as I have been having.

Oh yeah, I worked out at the gym for two hours today...

The NEW ME :)
Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, so DON'T forget your sweetheart !! I'm going SUGAR FREE for the entire day !! Wish me LUCK =) Bayoubabe
