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!

    The best kinds of people are warm and kind,
    They are always there and they never mind.
    The best kinds of people smile and embrace,
    They support you with strength and grace.

    The best kinds of people love and cherish,
    They lift you up when you're near to perish.
    The best kinds of people share your joy,
    To laugh with you, to joke and enjoy.

    The best kinds of people stand up tall,
    No matter how hard they fall.
    The best kinds of people are honest and true
    The best kind of person, my dear, is you.


    My good friend, Pattie, shared this poem with me & I had to pass it along!!! :) :) :)
    Thanks so much for being one of the 'BEST' kind of people, My Friend!!!
    I truly value & cherish your support & your friendship!!!
    Hugs,

    Jes
