Hi, my name is Brenda. I am 53 years young. My goal is to lead a healthier and therefore happier life. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. Would you like to join me? Come on in, the waters's fine.

Member Since: 2/3/2007

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
A few of my goals are: To sit comfortably in a theatre seat, to walk in a room and not look around to see if I am the biggest person there, to be able to buy clothes off the rack at Wal-Mart, to be able to walk a mile without stopping to rest.

Revised goals--2008
Well, I can now buy clothes off the rack at Wal-Mart and I can also walk a mile. So far, so good!

Update on the goals: Well, I can fit comfortably in the seats at the theatre now, buy clothes at most any store I choose AND I can walk 2 miles without stopping to catch my breath.

My new goal is to lose 33 more pounds in 2009. Then I will reevaluate the situation and see if I need to lose any more.

My Program:
I am starting simple, just trying to make better choices and learn to eat normal size portions of healthier foods.

I now walk 2 mile 6 days a week and do a minimum of 10 minutes on my healthrider every day except Sunday.

Personal Information:
I am a country girl. As I said I am a 53 young years of age. I have 2 grandsons Brady and Austin who inspire me to be the best that I can be. I want to live a long, healthy life and watch them grow up to be fine young men.
I recently played putt-putt golf with grandsons....FUN!

Other Information:
I read the book " Three Hour Diet" by Jorge Cruise. It inspired me to change my eating habits. My favorite quote is "A Journey of a Thousand Miles Begins With One Step". I feel like I have taken the first step on my journey to a better life.
I am MUCH closer to my destination than I was when I started!

    Thanks for the comments. Funny you should mention "before" pictures. I've been asked before, and I think I may have systematically destroyed everything before the ones taken the day of my surgery (at 284 lbs.) I've found some older ones--not sure of the exact weight--and my daughter is going to help me put them on my page, someday! 8-)

    Hi, Brenda, just checking in on you. Hope all is well.
    I'm getting ready for my friend to come over so that we can paint. Haven't done a propper painting in so long, I wonder if I can still do it!
    Have a fantastic weekend.
