4LIFE - Transformation

4LIFE! As I continue on my journey to a healthier me, God has revealed to me this transformation will be 4LIFE. MEANING, it''s on going. Just like my walk of FAITH. Each day is a new day that I continue to take moment by moment. I will keep pushing to better myself from the inside out. All by HIS grace.

I still claim "NO DEFEAT", even if I''m DELAYED!

I surrender to Jesus Christ leading and guidance. Continuing to pray for HIS wisdom on this journey of life style changes. Though "life" continue to take place with challenges. HE continue to see me through and grant me my heart desires. HE''S amazing, and I KNOW I will continue to tremble in awe with what HE has plan for HIS temple (my body).


Andrea Aitch-Oliver, known as TheBoss by her family, is preparing to take her first challenge w/SP. I am looking forward to the BLC23. I have been w/SP since 2011. There have been many life style changes for me since than, and looking forward to many more.

As I continue to follow the leading of My LORD and SAVIOR, I tremble in awe with the things HE has done with me both spiritually and physically on this journey. Now I am waiting for what HE will do and reveal on this phase of my journey.


I am Andrea Oliver. I am an identical twin. Mother of two wonderful boys, and wife to a caring and wonderful man, James Oliver.

I was stuck in my weight lost goals, and tired of only the quick fixes. I prayed and asked God to guide me, and He did, right to SparkPeople. I want to do more than just loose weight I want a change of life. I want to be heart healthy. I want my transformation to become a way of life for me.

*July 16, 2011....I made the decision to reset my goals. From the beginning, I have lost approximately 23lbs. Now I have 23 more pounds to go.

I am thankful for where God has brought me from, now I am moving like a BEAST to where He will deliver me.

For the first time in my weight loss journeies, I am at peace and motivated. I feel this journey will be a keeper. It is a true change of life style for me. I even enjoy and look forward to my workout sessions. I give all the thanks to my Lord and Savior, who direct and designed this path for me as I cried out to be delivered from being over weight.

LET''S GO!!!!!! On my way to Creating a New Me w/SP.

*May 29, 2012. Been MIA for a minute or more, but hanging on. My life has some what changed, my world is upside down, but I am hanging on. Isa 54:17 NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST ME WILL PROSPER.

April 14 came and went...OMG!!! I realized I had missed my SparkPeople Anniversary. Though not where I want to be, but not where I was prior to SP. For the first time in my over weight life, have I lost weight and have kept it off. Tears......I am still fitting my size 10. Can get in a size 8, but not like I want. But the AMAZING thing about the 8 is that I have NEVER wore a single digit as an adult. My confidence about my body is building and I don''t mind being exposed in the present of my man...LOL.

With that being said and updated.... I will not give in, nor up. I am a MASTERPIECE of God....and He will never be done designing His baby, both inside and out.

Let''s Keep Doing this......

Thank you, Andrea for dropping by my weekly blog. For the most part, Spark keeps me accountable...I understand the delicate balance that is needed...Somewhat, like my weight training...just a little at a time...I work at my level, know my limits & adjust to the day in question.

Have a wonderful week,

GOOD MORNING. I had to make THIS my 1st stop.
THANK YOU again and again for checking up on me from time to time.
Been running like a chicken with its head cut off.

You look good. But you have for a good long while now. Keep up the good work.

I posted a new blog updating what's been going on with me. You see me on you know. Added some details though I do not share on FB...regarding my progress so far this year health and fitness.

Glad to see you jugging along. I see you're deep into weights. I am headed THERE...soon. I started working more with them...but I know I will have to really do more once I have got rid of the majority of "the fluff". Not far to go. 10-15 lbs.

Your legs look good. I saw the muscle in the calf.
My thighs are full of cellulite and sagging...ugh. Calves are tighter, muscle building, nice & full.
I am going to really have to transform if I am to EVER get my thighs to a point I want to show them bare. I remember wearing shorts proudly in my I wouldn't dare. Gonna pray about it and ask for help.
A friend suggested aminio help with the heavy duty workouts.
I have started using a protein shake to supplement vitamins.

My arms are coming along...still quite a bit of work though. BUT...I can see a muscle trying to poke through. Still all around the armpit...Lawd. My back has smoothed out. I haven't done a bathing suit pic for this year. I WILL...during my vacay in May. :)
Stay blessed.
