My name is Leslie and I do not want to be the fat chick any more.

I am re-starting AGAIN. I have had several false starts since I was introduced to this site. I know what to do. I know how to go about it. Now I just need to do it.

I guess the proverbial "slap in the face" that made me realize I needed to do something about my weight was being called THE SEA COW by a co-worker/former friend. No woman was meant to be called a Sea Cow - but having just seen the photos from my friends wedding Sept. 5... I think that description was more accurate than I ever cared to admit. So now I am seriously motivated to become Sea Cow No More!





Member Since: 8/27/2008

Fitness Minutes: 1,380

My Goals:
I don't want to be the fat chick anymore.
I want to be healthy.
I want to have a baby.


My Program:
1. Follow medifast program (with the permission and supervision of my doctor)

2. Eat fruits, veggies, lean meats, fish, & whole grains.

3. Move a LOT more. At least 30 minutes of SOMETHING every day!

4. Not beat myself up while I do 1, 2, and 3.



Personal Information:
I live in Portland, Oregon and am originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico. And I still get homesick now & then.

I have been with my amazing boyfriend for over 10 years. We have a spoiled cat and want to add human children to our family soon. We are planning to get married soon (eloping is the plan - hate the idea of a real 'wedding'). He is my rock, my best friend, and my cheerleader.

I love blood, guts and gore. Horror & monster movies are my idea of a good time. I love a good scary ghost story.

I love music: punk, rock, metal, blues, bluegrass, early country (not a fan of the current stuff), and especially 80's music! All time favorites? The Cramps, Sex Pistols, The Ramones, Duran Duran, Slade, Yaz, Depeche Mode, the Cure, The Cult, Metallica, Adele, Alison Krauss, Los Lobos, and Willie Nelson....
go figure.

    Your comment made me laugh. I am trying to kick butt - my own butt so that I have less of it to kick around!! You're not doing too shabby yourself. Pretty soon you're going to have to change your name to SEACALFNOMORE. Happy Halloween!
