For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to sky dive.

Which is kind of weird for a girl who used to take a deep breath before jumping off the short retaining wall with her brother as a kid. I just don’t like falling. But somehow skydiving is different. Even though it’s a serious fall, it’s also an incredible one minute of FLIGHT.

A diagnosis of diabetes can feel like a death sentence.  I remember observing the faces of the participants in a diabetes education program, as the nutritionist described how to gain control of their blood glucose by controlling portions and by eating more nominally- processed foods and fewer sweets, sugary beverages and processed baked goods.

“Changing your lifestyle may feel like a lot of work, but when you consider the health consequences of diabetes, it’s worth the time and effort,” she explained.

In addition, she educated me on how to construct workouts that are impactful and time-efficient.  I have always been dedicated to working out.  With Brenna’s help, I am now more organized and productive.

My name is Lena Hartlage and since January of 2017, I have lost over 80 pounds and more than 30% of my starting body fat percentage!  My weight has been an issue I’ve battled my whole life- from the 3rd grade when I wasn’t allowed in a club because there was a weight restriction; to a college graduate struggling to find professional clothes for a plus-sized woman.  Dieting and exercising to lose weight have been a part of my life since I was a teenager.  Each time I would have a small amount of success followed by gaining the weight back and then some.

When I made the decision a little over a year ago, to finally commit to improving my health, I can honestly say it was the best decision I’ve ever made.  It has been a rough year, each day with new challenges and obstacles, but between the support of my loved ones and my own determination, I have achieved success.
