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.

HERE'S TO A NEW START! 4/3/15
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.
Phi. 4:13

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