I am sooo ready to be full of engery and life without the baggage. I am ready to begin dating, having a social life, exercising, and just being all around fit and healthy. I have lost alot of weight in 2003-2005, but I put it back on and a few more pounds extra, so now when it comes off I know I can keep it off because I am not thinking about it as a diet but a lifestyle change. I am happy to be apart of a winning team!! Good Luck Spark Team Members we can do it!!!!

Now as of August 18th 2008, I have continued to drop the pounds. To date I have lost 24.5 pounds. I feel sooo good physically, emotionally, mentally, and spirtually. I now can look in the mirror and be ok with what I am lookin at. I have about 65 more pounds to go but with the wonderful ladies of Curvey Creations and the members of Spark People I can do it. I now have renewed energy and strenght. I also look different at myself because before the lifestyle change I didnt think I had any will power to do this, but I now know different. I wish all the members of my team and of Spark People continued success and take1 day at a time1 hour at a time and 1 minute at a time.

Ok well today is September 15th, 2008. I am still on this lifestyle journey and doing very well I might add. When I last wrote I was down 24.5 pounds. Now I am down 28.5 pounds and I feel wonderful. I have since my last entry been doing of course more soul searching. It seems like to that I am theonly one that questions myself on is this where I should be right now. I mean I am always wondering what other 31 year old people are doing and that always seems to get me down, but I am trying really hard to be positive and free of any doubt. I have also since my previous entry decided to start working out. I had not been doing so and it was because of another team member that I started to. SHe helped me realize that I have to give 100% to this lifestyle change in order for it to work and be successful, so I have started on the treadmill for 30 minutes and doing a few bicep curls. Well I will keep everyone updated on progress every month or so. OH YEAH by the way still SINGLE and have even joined a spark team called Single with No Kids or (SNK).

Today is now October 27th 2008 and I felt it is time to add and share some things with my friends and spark buddies. Well just recently as many of you know I had my 32 birthday and I have the photo to prove it LOL. That day was GREAT I got so many BIRTHDAY SHOUT OUTS and COMPLIMENTS that it helped make my day that much more special. On that day I was also down 34 pounds, which was a celebration in it self. I am having to workout and work a little harder to keep the weight coming off. I believe last time I wrote and gave an update I wasn't working out it was just fallen off. As of today I lost 1/2 pound. I celebrate that to as if it was a 1 pound or 2 because all weight lose and inches off need to be celebrated. Now that I am 32 years old, I feel like I am READY to just SEE and DO all that I can to have a HAPPY LIFE. I want to also touch on something that is concerning me and that is now that the holidays are coming I am noticing with alot of my teams that people are not huddling or even posting anything. I mean for almost 5 days I was the only one putting a huddle in or making comments on the threads. This really concerns me because I like and need the suppport from my teams, but I think it is wearing off. I realize people have lifes and families and just sometimes get really busy, but I just don't want to have people lose focus. I hope that me mentioning this will help bring some light on the matter. Also one more thing I am out of 260VILLE finally and I am 255.5 right now. I am very excited that all my hard work is paying off. Keep moving those TICKLERS!!!

Wow it has been a long time since I have given my spark family an update on my page, but thanks to CHRIS also known as SHAWTEE4YA this is one of our challenges today for the "Win @ Losing" Team!! Well where do I start LOL!! I gave an update in October 2008 (LONG TIME AGO) Well since then I have had great progress and a few setbacks as well and as much as I HATE to admit it, that is apart of life and I am HUMAN!! I was 255.5 last time I wrote. I am proud to say that i have reached 252.5 and have been at a stand still (HELP!!!), I believe I know what I am doing wrong and that is not having portion control and not working out like I should, but thanks to my spark friend and buddy BIGDADDY1211, I have hopefully broken that cycle. Here is the kicker I have actually and as much as it hurts me to say it i have actual gained like 7 pounds!! I am actually really upset about it, but like I said I beleive I know what it is. Well I still believe that "2009 IS GONNA BE SOOO DEVINE" I just have to get back on track. Since 2009 I have had GREAT SUCCESS on SPARK PEOPLE I received the MOTIVATIONAL ICON ON MY PAGE and I ALSO WAS ASKED TO BE A LEADER OF this FABULOUS TEAM CALLED "Win @ Losing" It is wonderful and the members hae alot of motivation and support to give. SO HERE IS A LITTLE PLUG LOL IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED IN CHECKIN US OUT WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU!! I havent updated any photos really because I don't really feel like celebrating because I havent lost anymore weight and I feel like that is a bad thing, so I would love to take off the 7 pounds I have gained. Oh yes I also made it through my first HOLIDAY SEASON with SPARK PEOPLE and it was shakey at first because I was seeing members actually not on the threads or even on the huddles, but I had to realize that people are busy and have lifes and families LOL unlike me NAW just kidding!! I also have left a few teams because some of the leaders had fallen off and I was like the only one on the team and active!! Well I have completed my teams challenge today (MARCH 4th 2009), so to all my FRIENDS AND BUDDIES REMEMBER KEEP SPARKIN IT WORKS AND THE SUPPORT AND MOTIVATION IS SOOO UNREAL THAT YOU HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE BUT TO HAVE SUCCESS!!


Member Since: 5/28/2008

Fitness Minutes: 6,840

My Goals:
My Goal is to achieve good health that incorparates physical activity whether it be exercising or horse back riding. I want to enjoy working out and not have it feel like a chore. I also want to have more energy/

My Program:
To meet my goals I am trying to eat six small meals a day or three meals with two snacks. I also drink ten to twelve glasses of water a day. I count calories because that really allows me to eat a wide variety of things yet still be structured.

Personal Information:
My name is Lesley Bradley. I am from Phoenix and have lived here for most of my life. I am 31 years old and look 26, but feel 40 sometimes. That is why joining this site with a group of coworkers is very helpful and helps me stick to it. I am single and have no kids so I have alot of me time which is good and bad sometime. I have no life currently. I just work seven days a week, but I am looking for a new life or at least one that doesn't just involve work.

Other Information:
When I am not working I like to take pictures. I would love to get started on a hobby such as scrapbooking or knitting. The last book I have read was part of the Oprah book of the month club which was called A New Earth by Ekhart Tollie it was a life chaging book and it will leave you always thinking about what life would be like if we understood his principals. I must say if I had to choose three of my best physical qualities I would have to say my hair, dimples, and smile. If I had to choose other qualities i would say giving, caring, team player, and on time

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born October 23, you are ambitious and quite stubborn -- and it is the combination of any one of the first four traits, together with stubbornness, that is likely to see you achieve your goals and turn your dreams into reality. Some would say that you simply don't take no for an answer; another way to put it is that you will work tirelessly to uncover the opportunities that lay hidden within even those situations that seem to offer nothing good whatsoever. You will never use deception to make your way, and your word is your bond.

    While you take things very seriously, you also have a rather wild sense of humor, and you can laugh at yourself and others with tremendous abandon. Others marvel at your ability to enjoy yourself when things are stressful, hectic or strenuous -- but this is all because of your bright and humorous outlook.

    Today’s Scorpio Horoscope: Are you really willing to do what you said you'll do? Now's the time to be true to yourself!

    You share a birthday with: Sanjay Gupta, surgeon and TV medical expert; Nancy Grace, lawyer and TV commentator; Weird Al Yankovic, musical parodist; Martin Luther King III, public speaker, son of the civil rights leader; Dwight Yoakam, singer; Michael Crichton, author and filmmaker.

    Hope your day was wonderful!
