Hi. I am Leslie. A mother of 2 in Virginia. I am looking to lose approximately 115 lbs over the next year and a half. I want to become healthier, look better, and be able to keep up with my girls.

Following is my official biography:

I was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota and lived there until the age of 6 when my mother relocated us to Cable, Wisconsin to provide a better education for me. I attended the elementary schools in Cable and Drummond before progressing to Drummond Jr. and Sr. High Schools. I graduated with Honors from High School. After graduation, I left for the United States Army. I spent 4 years in the U.S. Army; the majority of the time spent on Fort Belvoir, Virginia as a Chaplain Assistant assigned to the U. S. Army Intelligence and Security Command. After my enlistment, I became a government contractor for a short period of time. In 2000 I began pursuing my degree full-time at the Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC). Utilizing my Montgomery G.I. Bill to its fullest extent; I earned two associate degrees: an Associate of Arts in International Studies and an Associate of Science in General Studies. I was honored several times throughout my academic career for making the Deans list, I was a member of Phi Theta Kappa, and I graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2002.

I am currently a Administrative Assistant during the weekdays. I am also developing my photography business that I founded in 2012, MeKamala Photography. I am working on my photography and writing portfolios.

Favorite Quotes:
I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.
~~~Marilyn Monroe
Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
Never, never, never give up.
