5 Reasons why I want to lose weight:
*I want better my health. I currently have PCOS, I have high testosterone, my hormones arent balanced. I dont have normal menstrual cycles, I want to live a normal life
*I want to have a family with my fiance. I have always wanted children and I want to see them grow up and have a family of thier own!
*Im tired of being overweight, tired all the time, I never have energy (at all)
*I hate the way I look, I want to look healthy and fit I dont feel like that Im myself
*I dont want to die young with heart failure or diabeties.
Current weight: 245
30 day goal: 235 (10lbs)
60 day goal: 220 (25lbs)
90 day goal: 200 (45lbs)
Long term goal: 130-140 to be health and fit so that I can have my own children. I want to be the person that I have always wanted to be. I dont feel like the person that I should be. Im always tired, I sleep for 12+ hours and still tired. I want to be able to run around with my niece and nephew. I want to live to be in my 90's!
This is going to be a better journey than the last! I want to thank every single person for reading this blog and if you have read this blog since I started! I also want to thank my boyfriend who has been there for me and everyone on team DDPY.com I'm glad I made this choice! Im never going to give up this time! ~*~Lesley~*~

Sept 2, 2013 Day 2:
Food intake for the day:
3 scrambled eggs with pepper for seasoning. 1 cup of mixed veggies
2 slices of Gluten free pizza
Today could have been better with my food intake. I was out and about going food shopping for the month. Didnt get everything we need but Saturday we will finish getting the things we need. Feeling good but would be feeling over all better once things will be back in place.

Something that I may say: " God, Please help me get through this day that Im about to encounter, but yet alone. I know I have struggled for years please help me make positive changes. I dont want to go back to the old me. I want to over come my addictions. I dont want to fail at this. I want to make my life better and be an example. I want to lead people in the right direction. I want these people who se me (daily/or on Facebook/where ever they know me) and think I want to be like her. She inspired me so much that I want to change my life as well. Thanks for getting me through this day" Amen
I have to say that everyone that I came across, and talked/texted/how ever I talk to on team DDPYOGA.com has inspired me to keep my head up and to NEVER GIVE UP on what I want in life. ( To many to name, but you know who you are). As many of you know I just started selling Avon this past week and doing better than I thought. Today while I was tailgating with some other Avon Reps I got a phone call from this other company that I have been calling every single day for a job (its not the best job in the world, But HEY whos complaining RIGHT?) I recieved a call today about 3:30 wanting to know if I wanted to come in today at 5. I was shocked, and I was rushing quickly to get home, eat and get ready. I never knew that I would have 2 jobs. As I relized that bills are pilling up on one another, and driving on 1/4 tank of gas to get back and forth. My fiance has barely worked 2 days in the past 2 weeks. But I prayed that we will get through this hard time.
The only other thing that I have to accomplish other than my weight is getting more reliable transportaion. My poor suv is on its last leg, and not sure how much longer that its going to last. Praying that it last another few months or until tax time. (*fingers crosses*). So from now on if I dare to think negitive I will go to team ddpyoga.com and chat with a few friends and Ill be back on track. This has been a hard but wonderful journey that I have decided to make for the better!! Now I figured out why September is going to be a good month for me, that I will have $200.00 extra for food.. Yay!! This means better eating, and a better lifestyle for me. After all these hard times that I'm going through my final accomplishment will for my fiance and I to get back on our own feet and into our own place again. My goal for that will be Feb of 2014 =)
I want to say a special Thanks to a few people who has helped me through this: The love of my life Edward, Dallas P,Christine B, Robert A, Stacy L, Sparky, Troy AND many many more on team ddpyoga.com

More and more I think about getting into selling Avon. Its only $10.00 to start up!! What more can I lose? I have nothing to lose, right? Right! $10.00 is a lot when you have almost no money! But I can make that back!! So I signed up last night to become an Independant Avon Representative. I have this gut feeling that this business will be really successful! I am excited for this new change that I have made. Work as little or as much as I work. I have always wanted this. I have talked for years about running my own business, but never knew what kind. I have always loved photography, and one day I will have that business too. If you want to be your own boss contact me! Ask how today!

On the 21st of this month I have been doing ddpyoga for 6 months. Not as much as I should have. I have been thinking if I was in a more positive environment where I live and not so much negative I would be almost to where I want to be.. more healthier and more fit.. I'm not going to let this get me down and out. From here on out I'm going to move forward and focus on the future! I'm not giving up. I am working on a major project that soon as its near finished I will be announcing the big news!

I have been engaged to this amazing guy for almost 2 years now, we have had our ups and downs like every other couple in the world. Needless to say we don't act/fight like my ex and I have.(Thank god!!!) So my fiance and I have been talking bout weather or not to have children. Lots of reasons to have them and lots of reasons why we shouldn't. As we was laying in the bed last night snuggled up to each other talking about why we are glad that we found each other, and what we would do if each other wasn't together.
Ed was talking while having tears of joy streaming down his face telling me that I have been the best thing that has ever happened to him in a very long time, and that I was his soul-mate. He told me that I was a strong woman that he needs/wants to stand beside him and wouldn't leave him for the world. While we looked into each others eyes with tears going down each others cheeks he head my hand and told me: " I don't want to die alone tomorrow, I don't want you to die alone either." "I want us to have a child to hold our hand and say, "I love you mom & dad".
As I gripped him tight as I put my head on his chest I said: "Are you saying what I think your saying??" Ed said "Of course I want you to be the mother of my children" By then I was balling my eyes out and asking are you serious? He said yes! Are you kidding me? Nope I'm not..I was shocked and still shocked. I made myself and him a promise. Its going to be a challege but I can do it. I will own my life and will be healthy to concieve my first child! Since I have started my life long journey with Dallas, ddpyoga and the team (my second family) I have lost 16lbs (down to 246lbs) since 2009 when I had precervical cancer I was 315 now down 69lbs total. Dallas this meassage is for you: Thanks for creating an amazing program to help me and thousands of others! THANK YOU for giving me a second chance. You have no idea what this means to me! ~Lesley~

I have tons on my mind and it feels like my heads gonna explode. No one understands how I feel or what I been through. Everyone thinks I'm okay just because I put a smile on my face. If they only knew how I really feel. It kills me inside everyday knowing I may never to have a family of my own . I cry deep inside when I see new status " we are expecting" or a mother who's water is about to break. No one knows how difficult it really is. This is hard to swallow. One thing in life I want to accomplish is to have a little one or two and watch them grow up. Why is it so hard in this day in age to forfill that dream?? Dealing with pcos isn't a walk in the park as it seems.
At the age of 24 my gyn doctor wanted to do a hysterectomy, and I told her not until I have my family. Sometime I wonder if I should have taken her up on that offer. No one understand the pain I feel. What hurts the most is knowing your ex-husband you spent 7 years of your life loving unconditionally and trying to have a child with has a 6 month old daughter. He didn't want a family with me after he lied and cheated on me. If they only knew what is going on inside.
Now that I'm on this journey I am going to make this dream happen. I am not giving up. As my mentor says. "NEVER GIVE UP". It still hurts inside but no one knows how I feel.
Living my life @ 90%

This morning was weigh-in day. I stepped on the scale but I was nervous but confident. As the scale read 250 even I shouted for joy! 12 lbs down, 22 down since last year and 65lbs down since 2009. I have been so proud of myself. I am eating more healthy and a lot less fast food and fried. If I'm in a hurry to get something ill grab a salad. Still working on the gluten free foods, and so far I haven't craved bread in almost a week. WoW I'm shocked a week without gluten amazing..normally I been 3 or 4 days but not a week..damn I'm proud of myself!!!!

A few weeks before going to the workshop I had received a phone call from Dallas himself. Altough I was unprepaid ( driving back from a job interview) I didn't have everything I need to ask him. So we just chitchated for 5 mins. On the day of the workshop Ninja came to pick me up and we carpooled down to Georgia where the workshop was held. We got to meet with Dallas and talked about how he came up with the program. We worked on breathing tecniques. And finally we got a kick ass hardcore (I shall say) hour workout. Boy I was sore the next day, but I really loved it. Meet a lot of nice people as well. I will be going to more of these and if you get the chance go to one. It takes your workout to the next level!!!!

I was talking to a girl who I grew up with and I saw her in December or January on facebook and was talking to her. I knew she had 4 kids the last time I talked to her. I was extremely amazed how much weight she had lost. Again I haven’t seen her in person in 10 years just chatted on facebook. I asked her "Adrienne( others call her Ninja) How the hell did u lose all that weight?" "You look amazing"
She replied: "I got started just getting sick of not being able to chase after my kids and being worn out by a simple outing. When my size 22 khakis (spandex mind you) were getting tight I kind of had a moment. At first it was small stuff. I walked and I ate whole, real foods. As I made it a habit I got to wanting to do more. I started running. I started the elliptical. I remember the first time I got on there for 20 minutes I had to take several breaks.
I lost 50lbs like it was nothing so I signed up for kung fu and lost another 30. I got stuck though at 200lbs. A friend of mine had seen the arthur video and suggested I try ddp yoga and gave me the pass code to try the energy workout. My plateau immediately broke the next day. I ordered the discs after that and started following the program.
I lost the weight (another 56 lbs), but what I gained was strength. I already though I was strong but I had no clue. Thanks to ddp yoga I've transitioned from using it for weight loss to using it for recovery after other activities that may leave me sore.
Safe to say I no longer get winded taking my kids out and I'm able to play with them like I never was able to before. I am in the best shape of my life thanks to this program and just pushing myself daily and ALWAYS moving forward."
I asked her what ddpyoga was all about and she told me, and I youtubed it and watched the video on Arthur and I was hooked! I ordered my copy and I started my journey Feb 21, 2013. The photo I have posted of "Ninja" was the one that inspired me the most!!!
Before I began my journey with DDPYOGA (the most amazing, and effective workout ever!) My name is Lesley and I’m 29 years old, and I have suffered/diagnosed with PCOS (polysystic ovary syndrome) in the year of 2005 when I was married. I didn’t know what this was until my Gynecologist informed me what this was. I went home, researched and studied what this syndrome that I has was. In 2009 I was diagnosed with Pre-cervical cancer. I was put on 19 different medications and I gained a lot of weight.
I was ashamed, disappointed, depressed. Although I have been overweight all of my life. While taking those medications for this because I wasn’t able to conceive any children. The most I have ever weighed was 315lbs. When I was married I had let myself go, not only because I was lazy it was because I didn’t feel like I was appreciated and I didn’t feel like I had to look good. After a few months of taking those medications I took myself off and dropped to 270lbs (most of that was water)
Several months after I have left my husband I met this amazing guy who swept me off my feet. He was my prince charming a guy that I have always dreamed of. . And now I will boost you up to where I started my journey with DDPYOGA!!!! ~Lesley~
