Lesley Pinder

For Lesley, accepting the Body-for-LIFE® Challenge wasn’t just about looking and feeling better. Coming from a family with a history of colon cancer, Lesley feared the possibility of becoming ill. In October of 2002, Lesley got the bad news she had dreaded. “My doctor discovered some abnormalities, and we discussed my need to make some serious lifestyle changes,” Lesley writes. It was then that Lesley became inspired to change her body and mind. Having never paid serious attention to what she was eating, Lesley now began to track her nutrition and started to make healthier food choices. She overcame severe knee pain, and lifted safely and effectively. In time, she realized she was becoming stronger. She lost nearly 30 pounds of fat, and dropped her body fat percentage from 23 percent to 13 percent. But more importantly, Lesley’s whole mindset became more positive, leading her through the 12-week Challenge. “I have a level of self-confidence I never before thought was possible,” writes Lesley. “By accepting the Body-for-LIFE® Challenge, I now understand how to eat properly and exercise to keep me healthy.”
