bon soiree brunch

A little party at work

A Tex-mex treat

All LowCarb!

Spring fever is rampant here!

A classy classic

Guess who won a treat?
Me - 2nd most hours worked...
And look at all the time I took off this year!

Picked the RayBan wrap-around style sunglasses
because I am old.
And need polarized side-UV protection.

Monster w/protein
Creatine, water. Coffee w/hot chocolate
Brunch ala above 
Coffee w hot/chocolate for dinner (not too hungry.)
4,000 steps and 
Washed the truck by hand. Cleaned it out, organized my supplies.
Getting ready for the trip! I've got a date with a Pelican.
The one who started it all one year ago!

If anyone doesn't know the story, I started a LowCarb diet one year ago.
While on vacation in the Grand Canyon, I got stuck behind a major snow storm.
After several days of no electricity, not a lot of food, and lots of hiking, 
I came home 15 pounds lighter!

March 2009
205 + pounds
Just a guess - I never weighed myself!


  1. Oh those food pictures are making me hungry. You have done so well Anne, and in just a year. I am so happy for you. Those sun glasses look cool........:-) Hugs

  2. Bernie - thank you for your kind words!
    And the glasses - hehe - a treat for sure.

  3. fabulous food!

    I lost weight in the grand canyon too, just from one hike!

  4. *drool* I love jalepeno peppers. A friend of mine showed me how to mix in the juice with nacho cheese once. If I have cheese with jalpenos, I do this now.

    It is a wonderful feeling winning prizes! Congratulations!

    You have done such a fabulous job on your journey!

  5. Brunch looks wonderful!

    Congrats on all you've accomplished!

  6. Love the sunnies, good choice, mine are wraparound too. (And I am older than you!) And oh my, the before and after pics are awesome. You look great!

  7. Have to admit i'd be going for the jalepeno peppers! Love the glasses :)

  10. Love love love jalepeno peppers...um sometimes they don't love me :( Great choice on the sunglasses! Keep up the great work on your weight loss journey. keep on keeping on!

  11. Ok, you have me salivating, now!! And, while I am extremely disappointed that you did not go with the Audrey Hepburn/Carol Channing model of sunglasses, these look very cool...even on an old "coot" like you. (I should be so "old")

    "You look Mah-vah-lus, Dahling!"

    No bifocals? Vision improved? My fingers are crossed. I don't have bifocals, although they were prescribed. I had it filled and couldn't see to read. Now I just take my glasses off to read. You've given me much hope, Wok star!


I would love to hear from you!
