Lesley’s Journey

Article by Lesley

As she approaches 60, Lesley sets herself some special goals and shares her journey with us

Hi. My name is Lesley and I am 57 (and a half) years of age. I hesitate to say 57 years old – because I’m not – old that is.

I am twice divorced, and the last ex left me with massive debt that I can never hope to repay. Two and a half years ago I was made redundant and as a result of that and the economic downturn I now earn half what I used to as a Finance Manager.

In two and a half years time will be 60. Let me tell you what I am aiming for. I am planning to go to New York for a few days – alone if there is no man in my life (or maybe even if there is). In preparation for this adventure I have started to make sure that I will be even more fab at sixty than at present.

Three years ago I lost 4 st on the Lighterlife programme and felt great – however about half of that has crept back on since. I have decided that the next three months will see me shift that 2st and an extra one. This is my fourth day and so far so good. I can already feel the weight coming off. Of course I will stumble here and there – but I’m not going to beat myself up about it, I am human after all. I wasn’t born perfect thank goodness – life would be so dreary if I had been. I don’t keep a record of my weight – it’s not important to me. What is important is how I feel and how I perceive myself. If I look good, I feel good and I also know what my ideal size is.

This will be MY year – everything I do shall be focussed towards me and mine (I have two daughters who are independent and successful). May it be your year too.
