In the past 7 years I have gone from being absolutely huge to losing over 260 lbs and having a weekly spot on a local Nevada Morning Show called "Body by Brenda". (I lost the weight primarily by cutting out refined carbs like sugar & white flour & adhering to the low glycemic index + cardio and strength training 4 to 5X a week) I was also in a couple commercials including one as a spokesperson for a Weight Loss Program. {Though I still have lots of friends out "Vegas way" you couldn't pay me enough money to go back to that side of the country at my current weight and condition... I couldn't bear (or is it bare? hmmmm...) the humiliation and embarrasment!} UPDATE: Since I originally wrote this my son was on the A&E weight-loss reality show "Heavy" (original air date 3/28/11) & has lost 200 lbs. I visited and was filmed and still huge and with mobility issues & health complications. Quite frankly it was pretty rough being exposed at such a heavy weight and & resulting complications of gaining so much weight back as well, on National TV. But I have survived and in the face of fight or flight, I have decided to fight my way back to a healthier better quality of life!) I am trying to get on season 2 of A&E's Heavy (My son recently lost 200 lbs on season 1 & still going strong.)

I never dreamed I would be anywhere near this fat again! But almost 3 years after leaving a dark, abusive marriage, I have gained back over 200 lbs and am in very poor health as a result. Losing so much weight & then gaining so much back inside of 6 years has wreaked havock on my health! (Massive gain back from eating fast food and all the wrong things for way too long and not working out... which I have found to be the prescription for disease!) I am on a mission now to get healthy and fit again! (And this time to get ALL the way to my goal weight and stay there!)

Mission 12-1: Get my health, energy & mobility back! And, with God's help and the community here I know I will run the race all the way to my goal weight and fitness. One day at a time, one decision at a time, I am committed to living and I know if I stay on the path I have been on prior... it will kill me. Pretty strong motivation! So, like I said... I am on a mission for my health & I will succeed. I am not depressed... I am energized because I am on the track and taking the steps and I will run this race even when it is tedious and tough. My health matters, my quality of life matters... I matter... I will try to be a blessing and encourager to my fellow runners. Thanks for welcoming me here.

Blessings for Your Journey, Brenda

Hebrews 12:1 ...let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.
