Jimmy Moore's "30-In-30 Weight Loss Challenge": Week 5, 190 lbs

I'm in! After falling off the low-carb wagon (and getting run over by it a few times) for a couple months, I finally re-dedicated myself to eating well and taking care of myself again. And the more I get into it, the more I look to the internet for inspiration and motivation. Turns out I almost missed Jimmy Moore's big "30-in-30 Weight Loss Challenge", his own answer to re-dedicating oneself to continued weight loss. His challenge is to lose 30 pounds in 30 weeks. He's proving it to be completely do-able, and I want in!

The Challenge officially kicked off back in August, but I'm gonna use November 1st as my starting date. That was when I got back on track, after letting my weight creep up to 208. So 30 weeks later and 30 lbs lighter, I plan on weighing 178 by May 29! Weigh-ins are every Tuesday on the Challenge blog, and today's my first, checking in at 190 lbs. Not bad for 5 weeks' work! And to make it even MORE special, Jimmy featured me in today's post! I feel like such a star - thanks, Jimmy!!

Speaking of Jimmy Moore, BIG CONGRATS for making on Fox News's list of Top 10 Health Blogs! This honor speaks for itself - Jimmy's blog Livin' La Vida Low-Carb is THE place to go for all things low-carb. Whether it's inspiration, motivation, product reviews, recipes.... you name it - it's simply one-stop shopping. He even has a separate Low-Carb Links page devoted exclusively to low-carb links, blogs, and theme-based posts. And since I've been away from the whole blogging scene for so long, I see Jimmy's now started his own Podcast Show as well! Soooo much catching up to do. Way to go, Jimmy, and keep up the outstanding work!
