I started in mid March of 2003 weighing 178lbs at 14.5% body fat exactly. After approximately 12 weeks, as of July 15, 2004 I weighed 155 with only 6% body fat!


Why I Got Started

The company I work for was given word that EAS was giving us employees and corporate workers an opportunity to compete against each other in the 2004 EAS Body For Life Challenge. We were given 12-weeks to transform our bodies. They requested before and after pictures with an inspirational essay. Out of 700 total competitors, both men and women, I placed 3rd overall!


How I Did It

Very Carefully! Over the course of these 12 weeks, my body went through immense changes! By the end of the second week I already had dropped 2 inches on my waist and 10 pounds. It was tough physically and heading towards the end of the competition tough mentally.

I've never worked out so hard or was ever so strict with my diet in my previous years. It took patience with the standstills (plateau) I was seeing by the end of the first month. It was a bit discouraging.

Ed and Gloria of MaxMuscle, La Habra Calif., helped me out a great deal with my diet, supplementation and training recommendations as well as the ideas I got from the Bodybuilding.com message boards. My family and friends were also supportive. Thanks Guys!

Suggestions For Others

Half the battle is wanting to do it! If you want something bad enough great things will come your way. Stick to your goals and never give up no matter what obstacles. If you get thrown off the wagon for a while for whatever reason, who cares, get back on that wagon and keep going! Never give up!
