- 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!!

20 pounds LOST >> where did it GO ? lol
It's been almost 3 1/2 months now. Great news to report, I've lost 20 pounds.. YEAH me ! I started out wanting to loose 10. I'll take 20 in a heartbeat. I now weigh about 131. When I began my low carb diet on February 1, I never dreamed of this much success. SLOW and STEADY is where I wanted to go. I am pleased at the results !
I went from a 35 inch waist, to a 32. Three inches.. so that's about an inch a month. I'm not pleased with a 32 inch waist, but it's better than a 35 inch. If I loose an inch a month, in three months, I'll have a 29 inch waist ! Sounds great, doesn't it ??
I'm still taking Bodypump (weightlifting classes), and RPM (bike spinning) classes. I purchased a new bike, and ride it along the levees here in Louisiana. I ride it every chance I get. My biking shoes (yes, you need a certain type of shoe to ride), has made a world of difference, targeting the right muscles, and giving me a proper workout.
I gained two 1/2 inches in my thighs from Bodypump. Squats and Lunges, I thank you !
I lost 1 1/2 inches in my upper arms, all those giggly muscles are now toned. No chicken wings on this girlie !
I am So ready for summertime. NOT yet ready for the bathing suit challenge, but give me another month or so.
I've been busy with teaching, test taking, etc. Another 10 days of school, and then vacation !! (fingers crossed).
I hope you have enjoyed the journey with me. Keep on reading my journals. I enjoy doing them, and post a comment or two if you like !
