My name is Leslee and I've been maried now to the love of my life for a year and a half. Which is a miracle to me because I grew up believing I would never get married. I was told "if you want to get married you have to lose weight". I've been over 100 lbs over weight since I was in 4th grade...in 2004 that number had increased to 230 lbs overweight. I had gastric bypass surgery in 2005 and lost 170 lbs, coming within about 50 lbs of my goal weight. I have since gained back 50 of those 170 ...

I plan on using SP to assist me on this quest :).

My Goals:
My first goal is to lose the 40-50 lbs I've gained since I got married a year and a half ago. I also have a goal of hiking Mt Timp in September. it's a 20 mile round trip hike. I've hiked it twice at nearly 300 lbs and "survived it". I want to hike it again now and not just "survive it" but enjoy it! After these two initial goal I want to continue to lose another 50 or so lbs. I also have a goal of participating in a triathlon.

My Program:
I've done low carb, fasting, slimfast, ..etc..etc.. always extremes. My plan this time is to just try to be healthy and normal. To stay between 1200 calories and 1500 calories. Walking/Biking or doing workout videos 30 to 90 min a day. I am trying to burn at least 500 calories a day through exercise.

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in Utah, and have lived in Arizona for about 5 years now (wow has it been that long!!). I initialy moved down here to get a job at a place that would have the insurance I needed to cover my gastric bypass surgery. My plan was to work until I had insurance for that, and stay here for another year incase of complications, then move back to Utah. In the meantime both my parents moved here and I met my husband..so I stayed!



Other Information:
I have three adorable Maltese dogs. Prince, Princess, and Charm. We are expecting another litter soon, and we might keep one from that litter also. They are my kids, and we are a very happy family!

Just stoppin' by to see how you're doing. We hope to see your posts often. This way of eating does work and is the easiest I've ever done. Keep plugging along and you'll reach your goal... emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi Leslee - congrats on the loss this week! I'm currently in St George Utah, although my heart is in Vegas where I was born & raised. Where did you live?
