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.

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!

SparkPoints: 61,544

Fitness Minutes: 41,302

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
