Working to be Better

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.

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 lost 60 pounds last year and then gained back 40 so I am starting the Whole 30 diet on August 10 2014 to get this jump started again. I am also joining a "lose 60 to 100 pounds in a year challenge" with Team~Indygirl. I hope to receive a lot of support from the team and to give a lot also. I know that together we CAN do this! My reward for doing this is going to be a trip to Niagra Falls!

Fitness Minutes: 43,618

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 of Jan. 2, 2013 I want to lose 108 pounds to reach my goal of 135.

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 put back 40 lbs. I've decided that while I can't change somethings, I can change my attitude, so I started the Whole 30 diet yesterday and I am in PT so at least things are going in the right direction.

HERE'S TO A NEW START! 8/10/14
Start wt 228.8 lb.s
Goal lose 60-100 lb.s in one year:
10.8 in 4wks-9/7
18.8 in 8wks-10/5
24.8 in 12wks-11/2
30.8 in 16wks-11/30
36.8 in 20wks-12/28
42.8 in 24wks-1/25
48.8 in 28wks-2/22
53.8 in 32wks-3/22
58.8 in 36wks-4/19
63.8 in 40wks-5/17
67.8 in 44wks-6/14
71.8 in 48wks-7/12
75.8 in 52wks-8/9

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 - -


Gorgeous,

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,

Jes
