About Lisa

Hey there!

I’m Lisa, creator of Ledoux Lagoon, and I’m so glad you stopped by!

Below are some of the questions I asked myself… and you may be asking yourself- which led to the development of this website.

  1. Can I move through my forties, fifties, and beyond and still feel young, energetic, and vibrant? Yes!
  2. Can I lose weight and feel fabulous, even though it’s harder to lose weight with age?Yes! (But it does require commitment!)
  3. How do I shed my old “diet mentalities” and still lose weight? When you’ve been programmed since the 1970s, 80s, and 90s to lose weight a certain way, mostly misinformed, detrimental, and self-deprecating ways- then switching your entire way of thinking about food, eating, snacking, and dieting can be tough.

For example, ever heard this advice before? “Eat 4-5 small meals throughout the entire day” WRONG!!!! That’s a good way to NEVER TURN OFF YOUR INSULIN.

    1. What is the best way to lose weight and be strong? This is a complex answer, and I’ve written about it in the following post: Over 40? Intermittent Fasting & Strength Training is for You!

What Do I Know?

I’ve been struggling with weight and body image, food, and dieting for years.

I’ve also swung between being unhealthy, being super-healthy, and everything in between (mostly the “in-between”) for almost 30 years!!!

And because I’m a pre-menopausal mom and wife, I decided that my health- and all the positive ripple effects good health creates- HAS TO BE my top priority. Now.

Losing weight, getting strong, and becoming healthy can be a dark, lonely, sad, and humiliating journey (which I’m currently on).

At times it can feel futile and overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

So please join me on this kind, joyful, lighthearted journey to lose weight, be healthier, be happier, contented, and fulfilled, and together those dark pathways can end here!

Let’s Get Started!

Birth of the Lagoon

Rewind 35 years.

As a child, I dreamt of faraway places and tropical destinations. I yearned to see flora and fauna from a different hemisphere. To read in the shade of the palms, frolic on the water’s edge, and experience the bright, vibrant colors of nature.
