About Me

My photo
New Orleans, Louisiana, United States
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!!

4 months = 28 Pounds Lost !!





<<-- January 2008






It just dawned on me a moment ago, that today was my four month anniversary since I started my low-carb diet and exercise regime. On Oct, 7, 2008 I weighed in at 164 pounds..
Let's not forget the REASON I decided to go low carb. My doctor said I was going through pre-hypertension (blood pressure numbers were a bit high). AND the fact that I went through a hysterectomy on Aug. 12th, which added to the aggravation of weight gain.





January 2009


At 5' 4" I am SO vertically challenged ! Today, I weighed in at 136, for a grand total of 28 pounds lost, and I have KEPT IT OFF !!

As told in a recent blog, it took me 10 days to loose the last pound. I had a sick child at home for five days, and I had not been to the gym to exercise in that amount of time.

So as the saying goes, time to move onward. I am almost at where I want to be, but am not sure just exactly 'where' is. I really have no desire to weigh under 130 pounds, so I'll worry about that bridge when I get there. I am VERY pleased with my progress. As many have you have pointed out, a pound here, a pound there adds up eventually !

Thank you for being my virtual soul and spirit out there. It is very encouraging to have a small circle of low-carb friends from around the world.. Most of all, thank you to Jimmy Moore :)

Blessings to everyone !:)
