- 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!!

The Low-Carb Road Less Taken ...
Sometimes in this low carb world, it gets lonely. You wonder if it's really worth it. Are there others out there who enjoy reading this blog... or if it's strictly a sounding off board for me and if others happen to read it and learn from it, then I've done some good.
Choosing to live low carb has become part of my life.. like the looks I get when I go low carb shopping at Wal Mart as people stare into my cart... or as wonderful as a Large Cup of my favorite Diet Iced Tea.
It gets even better when you can actually have an intelligent conversation with someone about it. Low carb diet and exercise... and the person actually GETS what its all about. That connection is wonderful.
Have I lost that connection ?? This road gets pretty lonely here. Counting carbs, exercising.. it's my way of LIFE.
It's hard too, when you live with someone who never has to worry about being overweight. They are just 'out of shape.' Ok, round is a shape, right ???
So they think I get anal. I just don't care. Just that I could use a little boost every once in a while, -- know what I mean ? I've reached my goal of loosing ten pounds. I'm loosing inches while exercising.. so why this FUNK ?
I guess everyone has them.. a moment in life where you feel one step forward and two steps back.. yet we're all on this same road together.. we're just taking different paths. So I ask you simply.. Where is your path going and WHICH road are you on ?
