My wife and I have known Leslie and her family for almost 5 years, and in that time we have developed a great relationship. Even before she got into fitness we were telling her that she should start a YouTube channel where she could talk about her transition from her career to being a new mother and housewife.
You see, Leslie has a captivating personality and a great sense of humor. On top of that, her first child (almost 5) is extremely intelligent and advanced and was a very entertaining infant and toddler. We knew that they would be a hit on camera, and occasional visits on camera by her husband (who is also funny with a great personality) would add more spice to her “show”.
She has since had 2 more girls for a total of 3 in 4 years! This has not only taken a toll on her body – I think she’s spent more time pregnant than not from 2010-2014 – but her free time (I know she’s laughing while reading that) is pretty much non-existent.
Why should you care about any of this? Because, after gaining weight and becoming less active with each pregnancy, Leslie found herself frustrated with the way that she looked and felt. Instead of simply sitting around and whining about not having the time or energy, she decided to take her health and fitness into her own hands!
As I said in the title, she has lost 50lbs and has fallen in love with fitness. It’s really motivating to see how much joy she has in taking care of her health and also providing a great example for her girls!
I’m going to shut up now and let Leslie introduce herself to you through this video:
Leslie has agreed to chronicle her fitness journey with the Fat Guy, Skinny Wallet readers and viewers, which means that you’re going to see her in posts, social media updates, and videos across our brand. So even though we never got her to share her life as a mother with the world, at least we can watch as she becomes healthier and more active. Who knows, maybe we’ll get some cameos from her husband and children. 😉
