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!!

Spring Foods to help you shed your winter weight !!


It's just a few days away from springtime here in New Orleans. The birds are chirping, the skies are clear. You can feel the breeze of the March winds across your face. Life IS good. 

Eating Well Magazine presents  a column today on certain foods that may help us get that extra 'layer'  of pounds that just do not want to come off.  It's time to shed our winter coats !!

The good news is many springtime foods promote weight loss naturally, and not just because they’re lighter than those hearty winter dishes.

It was so nice outside today, I decided to walk around our town for 25 minutes. Yes, and in the FOG !!

For brunch today :

I cooked up three scrambled eggs, with cheese.  ( 180 calories, one carb for the eggs) (Cheese, 100 calories, one carb) (Jimmy Dean Sausage (1 carb, 240 calories). 

I could not believe it but I actually took a one hour nap this afternoon ! I was up early, and my allergies made my head weary all day. Guess I needed the rest !

For snack this afternoon, I had a few blueberries and blackerries !
Hope yall have a great weekend !!
