- 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!!

Redirecting Low Carb..
Seems like there were many things to celebrate this week, or so I led myself to believe !
I met up with a new friend on Saturday. We went to church, then out to eat. I tried a new food (hummus) .Low carb information on Hummus. I am not sure how many carbs in it, but you served it on some thin matza looking bread. I couldn't get enough.
Yesterday was my son's 12th birthday..we went out to eat at Waffle house. Ok the hash browns were calling my name. (That was the only bad thing I ate.). So I guess I had TWO cheat days this week -NOT GOOD.
The good news it that I lost another pound ! I am now down to 138 pounds in eight weeks. It is coming off s-l-o-w-l-y.
Remember back on February 1, when I starting low carbing -- Round 2 ? Well, it will be 8 weeks tomorrow, and I lost a total of 12 pounds. Not bad -- but I'm doing it the healthy way, so I'm happy. My clothes do not fit. I am stronger in my weightlifting. I have a better balance because of the Bodyflow classes. LIFE IS GOOD !!
I stayed true to low carbing today. I had a Mc Donald's chicken salad (11 carbs) and some Newman's Own Dressing (8 carbs). I enjoyed some Planters nuts in the late afternoon. For exercise, I walked around my home town this morning for 25 minutes, and took a Bodypump weightlifting class.
Was on the road with hubby most of the day, purchasing new baseball clothing for the ever-growing 12 year-old. I'm also dealing with another painting project -- the bathroom closet ! Details to come lol. ...
