Hi everyone! I'm Brenda, and I made the decision in April 2015, to take control of my weight, and start the journey to lose 65 lbs, to reach a goal weight of 132 lbs. At one point, I did reach 133 lbs, and did a great job of maintaining in the 130's for a while, but have now regained 20 lbs. I'm actively working to shed that weight again as I refuse to get any fatter; I'm stopping the madness now!

Some facts about me:

Age: 42
Height: 5'6"

Current weight: 154 (04 Jan 2019) - UH OH! Weight gain! :/

My Goals:

My Program:
I'm doing this the good ol' fashioned way - eating plenty of fresh produce and lean protein, while reducing my intake of refined sugar, white flour, and processed food. Moderation works well for me, and I don't consider any food/drink to be 'bad'. I workout 3-4x/week right now - I love walking videos, vinyasa yoga, and all types of strength training. I usually keep my workouts at around 30 minutes per session.

    Thanks for the goodie. Summer has been cool so not much swimming. Had visits from all the kids( not all at one time) and took a fishing trip to Canada. Miss the spark chat but still tracking daily. Hope you're doing well too.
