Making Over God's Temple

Hello, my name is Brenda, and I'm a 47 year old computer geek who has just let herself go for way too long. I used to be fit and healthy, but time, school, work, and life just seemed to get into my way. I successfully lost 50 lbs in 2015, but after a hospital stay and doctor ordered rest for 8 weeks, I gained back all of it, plus some. I was also diagnosed as having metabolic syndrome X, meaning I am pre-diabetic. So, here I am, entering the spring of 2015 with a rekindled motivational spirit ...
Hello, my name is Brenda, and I'm a 47 year old computer geek who has just let herself go for way too long. I used to be fit and healthy, but time, school, work, and life just seemed to get into my way. I successfully lost 50 lbs in 2015, but after a hospital stay and doctor ordered rest for 8 weeks, I gained back all of it, plus some. I was also diagnosed as having metabolic syndrome X, meaning I am pre-diabetic. So, here I am, entering the spring of 2015 with a rekindled motivational spirit to get it done right this time around

As for me and my family, I'm single, never-married with two adorable pups: Boots (a 3 year old Boston Terror) and Sampson (a 9 year old Springer/Dachshund mix). I live in the greater Indianapolis / Carmel area and have lots of trails around to hike and walk. I just need the motivation to do just that! I even (finally) fixed my mountain bike! No excuses!

I've been overweight for 8 years now and I'm about over it. I miss the gal I used to be and I'm praying that I can be that person once again.

I reached ONEderland during the 2013 Fall 5% Challenge and am looking to plant myself firmly in the 190s in the 2014 Fall 5% Challenge. I have been receiving a lot of encouragement from friends and family about my weight loss accomplishments and are rooting me on to reach that 165 goal.

So, here I am on the verge of the 2016 Spring 5% Challenge and have a renewed determination and spirit to get back on track. I have all of the tools. I have all of the knowledge. It is just matter of putting these things in action. Which I plan on doing...TODAY!

My Goals:
My goals are to lose 70 lbs that have crept up on me since my 30th birthday 17 years ago. I want to feel healthy, be healthy, and regain confidence in how I look and feel.

Personal Information:
I'm in Carmel/Westfield, Indiana, and pretty much from the Indiana area. I have two dogs, Sampson, who I lovingly call wondermutt, and Bootsie, who I call the Boston Terror. I am not married, and have no children. But I do have a wonderful man in my life who treats me like a princess!

Other Information:
Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2
