Why I Got Started
Growing up I was once the chubby girl. I also was the skinny fat girl. I tried every diet out there. I lost the unwanted weight in an unhealthy matter. Due to this, it came back.
I went from my all time low weight of 120 pounds to my high of 162 pounds after I graduated from high school. Once again, I found myself losing the extra weight the wrong way.
Once I discovered the gym and lifting weights, what I wanted my body to look like changed. I no longer wanted to be a skinny girl.
I wanted to have a lean, fit, athletic body. I found my passion for lifting heavy weights! I learned that working out was a good stress reliever and loved the way I felt afterward.
How I Did It
I've now been going to the gym consistently for a little more than three years. During the first two years, I made little to no progress leaning out my body. My training was solid.
I was becoming stronger in the gym, but my diet was holding me back from the body I desired. It wasn't until I got my diet in check that I really started losing body fat and seeing the muscles I worked so hard to build.
Last February I followed the Body For Life program for 12 weeks. I saw results and it motivated me. I became a Team Scivation member in September of last year. I followed The Cut Diet and one of their training programs for 90 days. It was a great accomplishment.

Suggestions For Others
Make sure you track you progress with your measurements and pictures. Pictures don't lie! I always found that the more progress I was making, the more motivation I had to continue eating well and have great workouts.

Sometimes when I just wasn't feeling it, I would get on BodySpace and surf profiles of other woman who had amazing bodies. It helped me put things into perspective and realize you can achieve just about anything if you put your all into it. For some it just takes a little more than others!
