Why I Got Started

I was unhappy with the way I looked. I felt tired and old both physically and mentally. I realized I was too young to feel so old and decided to reclaim the body of my youth.

How I Did It

I started walking every morning and researching weightlifting and diets. I wanted to lift because I remember liking it in the past and I knew it was important for good bone density. I adopted a high protein/low carb diet and started lifting 3 times a week doing cardio on alternate days.

How far I've come really motivates me to keep on going. I really love the look and feel of my "new" muscles. Also working out is one of the few things I do just for me in life. I've been happily married to the best man in the universe for 25 years and have the 3 best sons.

I started at the beginning of October 2008. By the time New Year's Day arrived I had shrunk at least 2 full pant sizes - from a tight, button-popping 12 to a comfortably fitting size 8 - and getting great compliments almost daily.

March 1, 2009, I officially became a member of Bodybuilding.com and joined a transformation group for help and support in the final stretch. By that time I was down to a size 6, weighed 128 pounds and had developed muscles I never knew I had!

I continued cutting until I was a lean 112 pounds, 15% body fat at the end of June 2009. Now, 10 months later I am a lean 120 pounds, still 15% body fat and I wear size small, 2-or-4 depending on the designer.
