Hi I'm Leslie and I am 53 years old. I have chronic daily migraines and degenerative disc disease which have made it very hard for me to be consistent with my diet and exercise routines. I have decide that I am just going to have to be more prepared and more proactive because I am determined to get this weight off for good.

I lost 60 pounds last year and then gained back 70 so I am starting over on April 3, 2015. My reward for doing this is going to be a trip to Niagra Falls!

Member Since: 1/20/2013

Fitness Minutes: 47,513

My Goals:
I want to get healthy so that I can keep up with my 6 year old grandson and be around to watch him grow up as well as his new little sister.
As of April 3, 2015, I want to lose 108 pounds to reach my goal of 145.

My Program:
I have gone gluten free to try to help my migraines and I try to incorporate MUFAs into each of my meals.
For exercise I walk to "Walk Away The Pounds" DVDs and walk my dog when the weather is nice.

Personal Information:
I started this journey 1/2/13 at 243 lbs. I did really well for a while and lost 60 lb.s before changes in my health and meds led me to gain back 70 lbs. I've decided that while I can't change somethings, I can change my attitude, so I am starting over and getting help with my back pain so that I can move more.

Start wt 252.7 lb.s
Goal lose 60-100 lb.s in one year:
10.7 in 4wks-5/1
18.7 in 8wks-5/29
24.7 in 12wks-6/26
30.7 in 16wks-7/24
36.7 in 20wks-8/21
42.7 in 24wks-9/18
48.7 in 28wks-10/16
53.7 in 32wks-11/13
58.7 in 36wks-12/11
63.7 in 40wks-1/8
67.7 in 44wks-2/5
71.7 in 48wks-3/4
75.7 in 52wks-4/1

Other Information:
"Choices are the hinges of destiny."
� Pythagoras

I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

If you're tired of starting over, STOP giving up!

    "There is INSIDE of YOU
    ALL of the potential to be WHATEVER you WANT to be;
    ALL of the ENERGY to do WHATEVER you WANT to do.
    IMAGINE yourself as you would like to BE,
    Doing what you WANT to do,
    & each day, take ONE step towards your DREAM.
    Though at times it may seem too difficult to continue,
    HOLD on to your DREAM.
    & one morning you WILL awake to FIND
    That you ARE the person you DREAMED of,
    DOING what you WANTED to do,
    Simply because YOU had the COURAGE
    To BELIEVE in YOUR potential
    & to hold on to your DREAM."
    - - Donna Levine - -


    Believe in YOURSELF & know that you already have inside of you ALL that you need to become anything & everything you hope to be, want to be & dream of being!! You are stronger than ANY obstacle; You are capable of overcoming ANY hardship; & You are POWERFUL beyond measure!! Acknowledge YOUR potential & OWN it - - YOU are FABULOUS!!!

    Stay Positive, Stay Focused, Change IS Coming,
