~~~ Hi and Welcome to my SparkPage ~~~ My name is Brenda. My sister-in-law introduced me to this incredible community on New Year's Eve 2016. Wanting and needing to make a positive change in my life, I joined January 1, 2017. Life may not be perfect, but I am blessed. Health issues hinder my daily existance. Everyday I strive to alleviate and/or abolish any of them.

Member Since: 1/1/2017

Fitness Minutes: 15,563

My Goals:
I aim to gain control of my weight & ultimately obtain OPTIMAL HEALTH.

I plan to not only reduce, but ELIMINATE at least 100 pounds of unwanted weight. I intend to accomplish this by May 2018.

A few new healthy habits I plan to adopt on this journey are:
~~~ Drink 8-12 cups of water daily
~~~ Eat a small low-glycemic, low calorie, fuel-enhancing meal every 2-3 hours
~~~ Increase daily movement
~~~ Sleep 7-8 hours nightly

Tracking on SparkPeople daily will assist me with attaining these goals. My other helpful resources are water, food, fresh air, and my recumbent bike. I also plan to get a FITBIT.

I endeavor to be comfortable again in my own body.

I venture to want to play a great game of tennis again one day. (It's been over 25 years) Never say never!



UPDATE: 1/3/18 (1/1/18 ~ 1year SparkVersary)

~Got a FITBIT CHARGE 2 ...love it!
~Also got a FITBIT Aria 2 scale....Helpful resources aiding me on my journey!!



My Program:
I am actively changing my world from an obesigenic existence to a leptogenic life with the aid of OPTAVIA.
Dr. Wayne Scott Andersen has written several books of which I am in the process of reading. The way these books are written are fantastic; very easy to understand and comprehend (a little amusing, too). I met Dr. A September 9, 2017 at a talk he hosted. What a wonderful speaker; he also signed my book!
My sister-in-law is my personal certified OPTAVIA Health Coach; she also happens to be a registered dietitian. She is the same (and only) sister-in-law that introduced me to SPARKPEOPLE. Her support is immeasurable! I thank her for getting me on board with this program. It is changing my life for the better every single day!!

    Looking to stay focused through the upcoming Holiday Season? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle? If yes, then consider joining the Biggest Loser Challenge that starts in early December. Each week 10 teams of 24 Active members do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge, it can be modified to meet your needs. I hope that you decide this might be for you. If so, you can leave your name on the Wait List for the Winter challenge. To get to the List visit my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon; copy The Team Page Address below or let me know so I can send you an invitation. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat thread.
