Why I Got Started

I started years ago wanting to be in shape going to the gym here and there, I struggled with being consistent though, but somewhere along the way the weight started creeping up. Depression had set in and I was no longer in control of my life, I would go to work and spend most days in bed. Not a way to live your life, and I was letting my daughters and myself down. In 2008 I moved to Texas for work leaving my daughters behind in Michigan. One daughter was already in college and one still had a year and a half to go in high school.

It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do but I needed the work and had to be able to pay for my daughter's college tuition. I was much on an emotional roller coaster, food was my comfort, and I ended up gaining over 40 pounds. I struggled with my decision, but knew it was what had to be done. I never felt so ashamed at how I looked and that I was now wearing a size 16 in clothes. In January 2010 I decided it was time to take back control of my life. No more feeling sorry for myself; no more pity parties. So I set my goals and focused on my future and where I wanted to be in my life ... Fit, Healthy and Happy! It was time to take care of ME!

How I Did It

In January 2010 I decided to hire online personal trainer Daniel Rocha. From there my journey to transforming myself began. Within 12 weeks I had dropped over 40lbs, strictly changing my diet, and doing HIIT cardio. The weight just kept melting off me. People were taking notice and I soon become some one that people were inspired by. I was finally feeling alive and proud of who I had become: a strong, confident, happy me.

Come June though I decided it was time for a change and after talking to others I came across Robyn Balliet who told me about online coach/trainer Eric Broser. I was so impressed by his work, and the clients he had trained that I knew he was now what I needed to take me to the next level. Eric showed me a new way to train, his specialized workouts gave my body the shock it needed and the changes to my body started taking place.

Through his guidance and Robyn's (she gives me tough love) my body was shocked by the workout routines, and my body began to change another way. Muscle definition was beginning to show, veins were coming out and confidence in myself was soaring through the roof. Although my body weight had not changed a lot, I had dropped in body fat, and had gained a lot of muscle. Come October I had decided to move to Florida, and found myself unable to pay for a trainer.

I did have a few set backs from the stress of moving, and not working, but knew that feeling sorry for myself would only send me back to the old me and I was not going to let that happen. I still had all the tools from Eric and the meal plans, and knew that if I just re-focused that I could and would reach all my goals. Eric still checks in on me weekly (even though he is not training me at this time), making sure I am doing okay, and he has never stopped believing in me, and Robyn still gives me the tough love when I need it and has never gave up on me. In fact we are hoping that soon we will be taking that stage together!

Suggestions for Others

Never give up on your dreams. When someone tells you, you can't prove to them that you can. Stay away from the ones that bring you down and find those people that are in the same mindset as you. Set your goals and go after them with all you have. Nothing is impossible; everything is always within in reach.

Believe in the things you want in your life, listen to your heart and follow your dreams! When people ask me how I do this I simply say, "Always believe, keep the faith, remain strong, and stay positive, and everything else will fall into place."

Believing in tomorrow and what it will bring, and trust in yourself that there is no limit to what you can do ... if you just believe. Hard work pays off, and remember we all have off days or even weeks, but we get back up brush ourselves off and begin again. I too will reach my goals and step on stage as a bikini/figure competitor ... just have to take it one day at a time!
