Member Highlight | Lori Mangum Gets #FitToFly

Posted by Lauren Higgins on Tuesday, April 02, 2019


Meet Lori Mangum, the Content Coordinator at Yes Louisville. Lori came to us with a very specific goal in mind: she wants to shed a few pounds in preparation for her skydiving trip with her brother and father in July. 

We couldn't have found Lori at a better time in her life. With 4 short months between her and a plane 10,000 feet in the air, Milestone is determined to get her #MilestoneStrong and #FitToFly by making sure she has the tools and resources she needs to create a healthier, sustainable lifestyle. 

Tune in here every Sunday to keep up with Lori's progress toward meeting her goals with Milestone, and make sure you're following Milestone and Yes Louisville on Facebook and Instagram to make sure you never miss an update.

Until then, we sat down with Lori and asked her a few questions to get to know her better!

Spencer: What's your favorite movie/TV show?
Lori: This is tough because I LOVE the movies & have several TV shows I track with. I'm really pumped for the return of Game of Thrones & The Handmaids Tale. I'm also crushing HARD on the new HuLu Original show Shrill.

Spencer: What's your guilty pleasure/indulgence?
Lori: PASTA. And Cheese. And Cheesy Pasta. LOL

Spencer: What is something we don't know, or would be surprised to know, about you?
Lori:  I'm a cancer survivor...& pretty in love with my awesome victory scars.

Spencer: Why skydiving?
Lori: Skydiving is one of those things that looks completely nuts, but completely awesome. My brother & dad have been dying to do it forever, so I bought them gift cards to go do it for Christmas. But, I need to lose some weight to be in the ideal safety zone. So here I am!

Spencer: What are you most looking forward to doing at Milestone?
Lori: Group classes & the POOL! I am a total water bug & love that it can be part of my year-round fitness at Milestone! And I've never taken a group class other than yoga so I'm looking forward to trying.
