Like many others, I've been there. I've been more than 50 lbs overweight, I've suffered from the teasing, the lack of self-confidence and the agonizing trips to the mall to try on clothes. But, instead of deciding to live my life that way, I made the decision to make a change.
In January 2010 I began a journey to shed not only body fat, but the weight of several adversities I had faced over the past couple of years. Now, I am proud to say that after finding fitness and bodybuilding I have lost over 50lbs and transformed myself into a new and improved, more positive person. Additionally, on May 13th 2011 I competed in my first IDFA Fitness Model Competition where I placed 2nd.
Not only am I now a stronger person on the outside, but on the inside, I'm a completely changed woman! Bodybuilding taught me patience, control, the power of positivity and the importance of goal setting. I've since been able to use these learnings to make strides in my personal life and to find peace as a victim of infertility. Now, I live every day with purpose!
