- 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!!

Add "1" to the Loss Column !
Finally after three weeks of trying, I lost my first pound !!
WOW, it seemed like forever. Perhaps, I just needed to let all of those medications get out of my body first ? Who knows ? But I'll take it where I can get it.
I worked out at the gym for two hours on Sunday and 1 1/2 hours on Monday.
I bbq'd chicken breast, and legs, hamburgers and hot dogs on Sunday.
Yesterday, I turned the meat from the chicken breast into chicken salad. Yummy !!
One thing I learned about eating. If u do NOT need double fiber bread, don't eat it. That was the major cause of my irritable bowel syndrome. I was making my intestines work overtime, trying to churn away at the double fiber.
I'm taking the day OFF from exercising today. Trying to think of other low carb creative recipes for the rest of the chicken.
One down, nine more to go, at this pace, I'll be 10 pounds less by summertime LOL
