Hi! I'm Leisa. I've struggled with weight and food issues my whole life. I've also struggled with anxiety and depression most of my life. 2018 was especially hard for my mental health.

After several months spent away from Spark and focused on my mental health, I am back and ready to start working on the physical health again. I am going about it differently this time as I have changed dramatically this year.

I am discovering who I am as I have gained freedom from a lot of dysfunction and mental abuse that has had me bound.

I am going to focus on progress, rather than perfection.

I am going to focus on healthy lifestyle changes, rather than diet.

I am going to focus on healthy values, rather than obsess with numbers.

I am going to be healthier in 2019!

While I do not want to obsess with numbers, I will be turning 50 in 2019 and I want to be happy and healthy!
