Working to be Better

Hi I'm Leslie and I am 53 years old. I have chronic daily migraines and degenerative disc disease which have made it very hard for me to be consistent with my diet and exercise routines. I have decide that I am just going to have to be more prepared and more proactive because I am determined to get this weight off for good.

Hi I'm Leslie and I am 53 years old. I have chronic daily migraines and degenerative disc disease which have made it very hard for me to be consistent with my diet and exercise routines. I have decide that I am just going to have to be more prepared and more proactive because I am determined to get this weight off for good.

I lost 60 pounds last year and then gained back 40 so I am starting the Whole 30 diet on August 10 2014 to get this jump started again. I am also joining a "lose 60 to 100 pounds in a year challenge" with Team~Indygirl. I hope to receive a lot of support from the team and to give a lot also. I know that together we CAN do this! My reward for doing this is going to be a trip to Niagra Falls!

Member Since: 1/20/2013

SparkPoints: 56,499

Fitness Minutes: 37,780

My Goals:
I want to get healthy so that I can keep up with my 6 year old grandson and be around to watch him grow up.
As of Jan. 2, 2013 I want to lose 108 pounds to reach my goal of 135.

My Program:
I have gone gluten free to try to help my migraines and I try to incorporate MUFAs into each of my meals.
For exercise I walk to "Walk Away The Pounds" DVDs and walk my dog when the weather is nice.

Personal Information:
I started this journey 1/2/13 at 243 lbs. I did really well for a while and lost 60 lb.s before changes in my health and meds led me to put back 40 lbs. I've decided that while I can't change somethings, I can change my attitude, so I started the Whole 30 diet yesterday and I am in PT so at least things are going in the right direction.

HERE'S TO A NEW START! 8/10/14
Start wt 228.8 lb.s
Goal lose 60-100 lb.s in one year:
10.8 in 4wks-9/7
18.8 in 8wks-10/5
24.8 in 12wks-11/2
30.8 in 16wks-11/30
36.8 in 20wks-12/28
42.8 in 24wks-1/25
48.8 in 28wks-2/22
53.8 in 32wks-3/22
58.8 in 36wks-4/19
63.8 in 40wks-5/17
67.8 in 44wks-6/14
71.8 in 48wks-7/12
75.8 in 52wks-8/9

JES' FRIDAY FOCUS

If the WHOLE world was blind..
How many people would YOU truly impress?
- - UNKNOWN - -


Always remember that it's what's on the inside that matters the MOST!! You can be the most attractive or fittest person in the entire room but good looks alone can never make up for an ugly soul or a cold hear!! Eventually we all get old, we all grow wrinkly & we all get gray - - Remember to nourish more than just your body on this journey to better health!! A good heart, a beautiful mind & a caring soul will NEVER go out of style!!!

Stay Positive, Stay Focused, Change IS Coming,

Jes

holy moly! so awesome to get a star as encouragement! I LOVE THAT!!! Thanks! :)
BTW: not sure where you're located, but Niagara Falls is our 'happy place'. we've gone there a lot, so when you get closer to your going, let me know if you want any info about certain stuff and maybe I can help. We've stayed at a lot of different hotels and I have a few tricks up my sleeve now for saving some loot and where to get the not so bad food.
thanks again so much for my star! It totally helps! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
