Leslie Sansone

Sunday, September 22, 2013

I saw this particular DVD because I want to increase my walk to 5 miles, I really liked the statement (following) so going to order it, now on Amazon. I feel I have lost because of her not just in the way I eat. All should try Leslie, even if you are sedentary, or have limited mobility, you can work out with Leslie in the safety of your own home, and at your own level. I know when I started with her, even a half of mile did me in, I was so out of shape and purely lifeless at the end of the walk. Now I walk with her 3 miles a day effortlessly, and that also clues me in to the fact I need to do more. Statement follows......

"I now have 11 of Leslie Sansone's videos and I love every one of them. She often states that her workouts are not for sissies and that is very true but REALLY anyone can do them. You just set your own pace. I started working out with Leslie's videos on April 1st, 2008. I weighed 240 lbs. It is now February 24th, 2009 and I am happy...no thrilled to tell you that I have walked away 83 lbs!!! I went from 2X to size 12. My goal is to lose 100 lbs and I know I will get there. When I started out I could barely get to the end of the 3 mile video. I'm up to 5 miles now and I love it! I'm hooked! What a great thing to be addicted to...exercise!!! Now here's the best part....I'm 62..I'll be 63 in just a few days and the young girls who work out with me can't keep up!!! Please do yourself a huge favor and get started walking away the pounds today. Or just do it to be healthier. Either way, you come out a winner!!!"

You really do lose weight with her. I have a friend with limited mobility that does her walking from her couch, she just moves her feet and works her arms. And another one with Fibromyalgia that pushes through the pain, to do the walks. And afterwords she feels pretty good. So any of us can do it. Not sure I would ever want to own 11 DVDs though? lol But I do own 2 and getting the 5 mile one right now!!!

Leslie is the best thing that has ever happened to us couch spuds, agoraphobics or shut ins stay at homes, and any bad weather that may pop up and my favorite thing is safety. No worries of being mugged shot or run over and mauled by a wild animal. See? lol exactly my point.

And to add since I started with Leslie and clean eating I have lost a total of 35 lbs. I had already lost 9 lbs earlier on before I saw the Dr. in March. I wasn't exercising then, and I still had sugar and refined foods involved, and this was over the course of a year, I was just eating clean as possible, but still cheated every so often. So now with the combination of the exercise and eating extremely healthy and cutting out all dairy (mostly, still no cheeses, sour cream, and yogurts) Any red meats and all refined foods, no breads, pastas and of course lastly SUGAR! I feel I am finally successful in this journey to health.

    I, too, LOVE Leslie. She is what got me off the couch and into getting fit. I mainly use her DVD's during the cold winter but I know they are available whenever I want a change.

    Leslie is one of the best series for walking indoors. I have all her vids. Unfortunately I will have to donate them to the library when I move. I'll be living in an apartment above another apartment and I don't want to be evicted! LOL

    Congrats on your success!

    I, too, love Leslie. I couldn't keep up with her when I weighed 311, but walking with her built up my endurance, and the weight started coming off. I'm about 100 pounds lighter now, and still do her videos.

    You are SO right about Leslie. She is awesome! I have been working out to her videos since I was a kid. I have one for diabetes, but I haven't tried it yet. I'm sure it will be great, though!

    I love Leslie. I jog now, but at 325, she taught me I could exercise. At 115, I run. She's amazing and will teach you a LOT.
