Take Back Your Life


How do we know when enough is enough? When is it time to make a change? If not now, when? We all know the power of doubt, negativity, and procrastination. It’s a horribly persuasive voice that sits on our shoulders fueling our fears. We battle with this voice everyday. It tells us, “You’re not worthy.” ” You can love yourself next week.” “You’re not strong enough.” “You can maybe leave him if he hits you again.” “You’re too fat and poor to workout.” “You can live a better life when you retire in your 60’s.”

We all know what happens when we listen to this dark voice. We put off decisions and goals for so long that we finally give up. We succumb to negative thoughts and dysfunctional situations that lead us astray instead of fighting for ways to take control of our lives. However, there is always hope. There is always another chance. There is always the now in which anything can change, anything is possible.
Wend Ida, America’s leading expert on how to “Take Back Your Life” shares with BFW Magazine how we can quiet that negative voice in our heads in order to make the impossible possible. She is a domestic violence survivor who was a fast food junkie in poor shape and health. She was actually four dress sizes larger than she is today, and gained an additional 50 pounds after having two children back to back. At age 43, she lost 80 pounds and reduced to a rock-solid size 4.

Yet, her success in improving her health and losing weight does not end there. Wendy went onto become an 8 time award winning National Champion of top trophy awards in the NPC Bodybuilding and Figure Championships as well as a Strive to Thrive Fitness Expert touring with Actors Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker, the founders. At the age of 60, she set two Guinness Book of World Records. One was for oldest active instructor trainer that is certified and working in multiple disciplines and the other for performing 37 burpees in one minute. She also wrote a best selling book called, ” Take Back Your Life: My No Nonsense Approach to Health, Fitness and Looking Good Naked!”

“It’s no wonder why Wendy feels sharing her self taught approach to mental readiness, self worth and teaching, preaching and inspiring others to live their potential can not only change the world, but it is her reason for living”.
