Hi. My name is Lesli. I am a 39 year old wife and mother of three kids, ages 17, 15, and 9. I am a full-time college student, AGAIN. I was a Certified Medical Assistant for 7 years, and an EMT-B for a volunteer ambulance service. I grew up on the west side of Oregon, my family moved us to Montana my Sr. year. I met and married a Montana man, and was stuck there for many years. I got divorced and after taking almost a year to make sure all things were settled, I moved back to Oregon, the East side this time, because it's where my mom was. I met and married my current husband, and find myself stuck over here again, even though my mom returned to the west side. I started my new lifestyle in September, as I am nearing 40, and I need to get healthy. I have my own weight loss group of only 17 people on my FB. My friends and family wanted me to start it because I inspire them, however, I would like some friends that inspire me on occasion as well, and help keep me motivated. I would like to meet some people who are working toward a healthier lifestyle and want to help each other get there. I am positive and have a lot of motivation most of the time, but occasionally I have my down times, and need someone to help keep me going. I hope you are reading this and will drop me a line, or add me as a friend. I look forward to getting to know you.
ps. I found it necessary to go back to school for a different direction in my life. I loved the medical field, but kind of got burnt out on all the drama with co-workers. I loved being an EMT and saving lives, I have found a new path where I am working toward a Therapeutic Intervention Certification and Early Childhood Ed degree and doing my internship with at-risk children of possible abuse and neglect, So I am giving children a voice and trying to save children, grateful I started my healthy lifestyle before I started my internship because it helped me immensly to work with the little kids, being on the floor a lot etc.
Losing the weight is a small fraction of the battle...dealing with the emotional baggage along the way makes you successful...(speaking from personal experience).:-D
