My Journey: From 187 pounds at 39 to my FIRST Bodybuilding Competition at 42! Transforming me!

"And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight in the bud
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."

"What the mind believes, the body CAN achieve!"

In March of 2008 I saw a picture of myself at 186 pounds. It was at that point that I said enough was enough. I started going to a doctor for vitamin B shots and what I liked to call 'legal speed'. I would never recommend this as a means of weight loss knowing what I ...

"What the mind believes, the body CAN achieve!"

In March of 2008 I saw a picture of myself at 186 pounds. It was at that point that I said enough was enough. I started going to a doctor for vitamin B shots and what I liked to call 'legal speed'. I would never recommend this as a means of weight loss knowing what I know now. It was an act of desperation. But I lost 45 pounds in a year and then I stopped taking the pills and shots and continued to keep the weight off.

Between March of 2008 and April of 2009 I dabbled in treadmilling and home exercise as a beginning to where I am now.

In April of 2009 I joined a gym, started strength training and am now officially addicted to it! I am training for my first competition in 3 weeks!! I cannot believe what I have accomplished in 3 years...and I know that if I can do this, YOU CAN DO THIS!


I am happy that I am now as strong on the outside as I am on the inside. I no longer hide when someone pulls out a camera. Shopping is fun again. And I am showing my 3 daughters that it is absolutely okay for a woman to be strong physically and mentally.

I still have a long way to go...but I know I will get there!
