Why I Got Started
dot

I have always loved working out, usually I would just stick to cardio type workouts, cardio kickboxing, aerobics, elliptical and treadmills. I, like many other women thought that weights made you bulky so I wouldn't really use them.

I started really dieting and working out my sophomore year in high school and as my senior year approached I got really strict with my diet and became overly obsessive over what I was eating. I then went off to college that fall and things got even tighter.

I was suffering from anorexia and occasional bulimia. I was eating iceberg lettuce, some mixed vegetables in small amounts, coffee and 100 calorie yogurts and sometimes I would even feel guilty over eating a yogurt!

& Occasional Bulimia.

After about 2 years of living like this I got down to 110 pounds and still wanted to lose more. To make a long story short I looked at myself and what I was doing and decided that I could not continue on like this.

In May of 2006 I stopped my eating disorder cold turkey and never looked back, one of the best things I have ever done for myself. I was so lost about nutrition and what I should exactly be eating, since my body had been starved of food and water for so long it held on to everything I ate because my body was so messed up and starved.

I just started gaining and no matter what I did or how clean I ate it would not come off.

How I Did It

In February of 2007 all of a sudden things changed and my body started to drop. I joined Jenny Craig with my aunt because I was desperate to lose weight and at this time in my life it was so easy to follow the program because I didn't have to think about what to eat which can be hard for a person overcoming anorexia.

They showed me that I could eat 1500 calories and still lose weight which was a shocking to me to hear because of my previous starvation type dieting of 500-800 calories. This was a big eye opener for me!

I then started searching things online to learn more and ran across Tom Venuto's Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle e-book, which opened my eyes to bodybuilding, figure, lifting heavy and competing!

In early December I met Jason Phillips (Jphillips17) and Catherine Holland (hollandc) and they taught me what INTENSITY really was! The workouts were intense and I loved every minute of them. I followed Jason's diet to a T and weighed measured everything to make sure I was eating the correct amount.
