Take The Goji Challenge for Weight Loss

Posted by Leigh Conducy on May 29, 2015 at 11:58 AM

My name is Leigh Conducy and I am taking the Goji Challenge to lose weight and get fit. I know exactly when my weight got out of control. Right after high school.

I grew up very poor in Alaska. Most of the time, my mom and I were on food stamps and my diet was whatever we had available. My mom did her very best to give us everything we needed and I never starved, but I never got any extra servings and wasn’t offered all the food available to other kids.  

So, when I first started making money and could afford to buy my own food, I fell in love with eating. I went crazy, eating whatever I could get my hands on. That's when the weight gain started.

I have spent most of my adult life working long hours, doing blue collar labor and have never been able to prepare meals. Throughout my career, I ate on the fly and never stopped to sit down for meals. I have eaten whatever I could grab and then gone right back to work.

In 2008 I moved to Maui. My plan was to slow down, work a 40 hour week and start making time for myself. Maui is where I began my quest to really lose weight. I showed up to Maui weighing 285 pounds - the biggest I had ever been.  I started running and paddle boarding. I dropped all the way down to around 230, which for me, was awesome. I also picked up Jiu Jitsu in Maui and have been practicing that sport ever since. I love it and consider it my favorite hobby.

Now, life has changed. I've moved to Minnesota. I am a husband with two kids and one on the way. I work full time and am devoted to my family, so finding time for my health has been difficult. I needed to find a different way to get healthy. I needed something I could enjoy, something to motivate me to do cardio, because I dreaded getting on those exercise machines. An online search led me to Goji Play, which was exactly what I had been looking - but didn't know existed. Weight loss seemed finally seemed doable.
