Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
My name is Brenda. I am 43. I have 2 boys, 23 and 16. I have high cholesterol and a family history of heart disease so I wanted to lose weight, eat healthier, and get more exercise. I love that there is so much support and information right here. It helped a lot. I've lost weight before, but never kept it off for very long. I've lost the weight and met my goal (several times)! Now if I can just get back to goal weight and figure out how to maintain it...
I want to maintain my weight loss, lower my cholesterol level, and get into shape.
I am drinking a lot of water, trying really hard not to eat unless I really am hungry, trying to get more exercise, and getting tips and support from SparkPeople!
I am from Washington State. My name is Brenda and I am an accountant.

If thereâ€™s still something you are unable to do, please modify to meet your specific needs! The point isnâ€™t to show your strength training prowess and be the best of the best. The point is to PARTICIPATE! Now letâ€™s get a little hooter sweat going before we hop in the shower to do our self exams!

HI, it's Cathe'. I still need a REAL PHOTO OF YOUR FACE for the Fall Family Tree. It will only be used for this purpose -- the photos are so small that everybody looks good! At this point you are the only one I don't have a picture of. Please let me know how to get your picture,
PS: Please friend me so that I can leave comments and SparkMail on you page. I had to go through Linn's contact to send this to you.
