Coach Lesslee here!
I am passionate about helping women who struggle with their weight and fitness as they head into their 50's. What worked for them before is no longer working, yet they aren't ready to give up or settle. This is their time. They are ready to feel strong, have great energy, AND be able to wear their favorite clothes. What they don't want is another restrictive fad diet.
Having struggled with sugar addiction, binge eating, and later autoimmune disease and cancer, I know first hand how it feels like to be out of sync with my health and eating.
I understand that there isn't a one-size-fits-all program. I had to find new ways to help myself through my own journey and in the process, I developed a healthy relationship with food and fitness that I want to share this with you!
I understand what it feels like to be out of balance and finding comfort in fast food and then trying to "outrun" my fork with endless cardio! For years I tried to fix my body; a body that never needed fixing. What I learned (the hard way) was that dieting not only doesn't work, it can backfire and make everything worse.
After addressing my own issues with sugar and processed foods, I found balance in my life, not only with food but within myself. At 63 years old, I am strong and healthy and I achieved this all without yo-yo diets, sugar crashes, and endless cardio.
This can be especially hard for middle-aged women(and men) after 40 and 50 years old, when our hormones and bodies drastically change and require a different approach. The time just before, during and after menopause can wreak havoc on a woman's body and men are not immune to this. While menopause affects women, men over 40-50 years old too struggle with hormonal changes related to testosterone which can make loosing weight and gaining muscle a challenge.
