    I can’t do the 2 miles so I have been aiming for 30 minutes, though many days I can’t do that. I remember when I had no problem doing 5 miles. I love your videos and wish I could follow them. Unfortunately I can’t keep pace (due to health issues) and it makes it hard to use them, because I want to keep pace with the music.

    Walking with Leslie since March 1, 2013. Have lost 23 pounds (right before starting the challenge on Oct. 1). Just finished week 1 tonight- can’t wait to start week 2 tomorrow! Looking forward to see the results by the end of the 30 days… thank you Leslie!

    Leslie, Thank you for all you do to encourage fitness. I have a question. I’ve just read a book by Jorge Cruise, Oprah’s fitness coach. His new book is called 100 and he talks about sugar calories and offers a 4 week meal plan that eliminates all sugar and sugar substitutes. He even breaks down all the diet programs, i.e. Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers and he gives the pros and cons of each. He does not encourage exercise other than strength training. I always thought that exercise and balanced meals are the key to sustained weight loss. I am 65 and I do know I love coffee with sugar and a piece of candy every now and then. I have lost 20 pounds in the past few years and now my weight is stationery. What is your take on all of these “diet” gurus and the information they give out. I’d like to think I’m a educated consumer but all these so called “diet plans” are making me really confused. Any thoughts?

    I just found this…and I’m IN! I started walking with leslie’s videos 3 weeks ago, about 4-5x a week, outdoor when I can (I live in MN) I have about 70lbs. to lose, but find the walking doable, and I can pump it up when i’m feeling strong.

    I find Leslie so inspiring and full of God’s love and acceptance. She motivates me and helps me remember the ‘good’ things about a balanced life, not putting yourself through torcher, mentally & physically…but to treat yourself well and give yourself the best chance in the Life….God did that for us all, I should do it for myself, too:)

    I have been walking with you for years. Thanks so much for your help. I started the year with the walk a mile everyday challenge and I’ve gotten in at least 1 mile every day this year. Now I’m doing the current challenge. I love it. Thanks for being so motivating!

    I been walking 5 plus miles a day. Then I do one of your new dvds. I am getting so tired. I’m anxious to lose weight, so I’m over doing, for me. I need to lose 50 lbs. I’m disgusted with myself and how I look. I know this does not feel right, but I want to be thin now. I’m so unhappy with myself.

    I shared this information to my friends that are trying to lose weight. With your Walk DVD’s and other tools, along with eating better, I have lost 36 pounds since January. Down from a size 14 to a size 8. My family and I are now preparing to doing a K5. I believe I am able to run, because I first started walking with you. Thanks!

    Well I got thru the first week!!! YEAH!!!! I have been going through breast cancer treatments and my body is worn out. I am at the end of my treatments (only 1 more month to go) and I am really, really out of shape. However, I did get through the first week and I am taking it one day at a time. Not doing all the miles but doing the best I can. It feels GREAT to be doing something after such a long and exhausing year. .. Thank you to my friend Marilyn for suggesting this to me. Your are the best. Week 2 here I come…

    I love love love all your videos.. they have always been easy to follow and simplified enough to push through on those not so good days… I’m normally the one pushing others to get started, do something not to succumb to being unhappy with where they are in their weight, exercise (or lack thereof)… I always invite them to join me and do your videos… and then they become Hooked… Now the 30 Day Challenage confirms all that I’ve tired to explain.. It’s Wonderful and again easy to access, easy to do, easy to achieve and best of ABSOLUTELY GUARANTEED RESULTS!!! I’ve got a few ladies committed to do the challenge and with week 1 down they’re all in a good place. Thank you for your motivation and push for those of us who are used to dishing out… (There’s sooo much more to my story… I’ll share when I’ve reached my goal) It’s great incentive and source of encouragement. Thank You!!

    Did the “Firm” part of the Walk it Off video this morning-felt nauseous afterward. Has anyone ever experienced this? Not sure if I just over-did it or what.

    Made it through week 1. Was only able to do the walking parts. This week I’m going to try and get the extras in. Weight has gone up even though I’m more active and watching what I”m eating.

    Leslie I have had knee problems for the last 3 years. I had a total knee replacement last year. I knew that walking is good for my knee as my DR said to do it as much as possible. Even though I still have a lot of pain I di at least 1-2 miles per day. Last week I found out that my pain is due to a pinched or clipped nerve when the surgery was done. I still walk as it takes my mind off the pain. I use different DVD’s of your to help. Today I did 5.22 miles. Tonight I am icing as this is what the DR said to do after long or short walks.
    Than you for being there for me on my Journey as well as Spark people.

    Thank you VERY much for your DVDs. I first borrowed one from the library and was happy with the low impact workout that I purchased the 5-day Slim Down. I’m not slim, yet. However, I really do feel better and I can feel the difference when climbing stairs or square dancing. My muscles are getting stronger. Jane

    Hi Leslie,

    I have a great deal of weight to lose and a substantial amount of injuries from falls and scoliosis. Your video has been really beneficial for me because it’s so safe and low impact. My goal is to drop to 180 pounds (I am 6ft tall and I weigh 485). 305 pounds is a great deal of weight to lose but I’m extremely committed and determined in the process as I want a new life with a healthy body that I’ve never had since around age 17 when I first dislocated one knee. After multiple falls, dislocations, breaks, and back injuries, I’ve come to the point where I either get the weight off once and for all and put up with the pain, or I end up in a wheel chair and die a miserable woman. I would rather be successful and happy. I didn’t even realize you had these kinds of videos out there for people like me until I went on youtube looking for something I could do that wouldn’t affect my balance. Anyway, I’m looking forward to better health, a better life, and happier future. Thanks so much for all you do. Sincerely, April.
