Why I Got Started
dot

Everyone who's ever talked to me knows I have a love for Mixed Martial Arts. I was at the fights one night and after a few too many drinks mentioned to a friend that I would love to get in shape like the guys who fight. The friend I was with that night turned out to become my trainer and ended up being one of my best friends in the world! Marty Holmes has been such an influence; I can't imagine this journey without him!

Regina Trolman's Progress.

There were days when I cursed him and days when I cried and days when I didn't want to get out of bed to meet him at the gym, but If I hadn't I would still be 203-plus pounds.

How I Did It
dot

It wasn't easy. It took a lot of drive. It took a lot of desire to not be the "fat girl" anymore. I was coming up on my 45th birthday and I could barely make it up the 3 flights of stairs to our apartment without feeling like I was dying.

It Took A Lot Of Drive.

My mom was beginning to worry about me with all the meds I was taking for blood pressure and cholesterol, and all other assorted middle age illnesses. I made a deal with myself that I needed to get off all that "cr@p" and start eating right and living right.

I cleaned up my eating. I was already a vegetarian, so I cut out all the greasy, fried, fast food. I ended all the snacking and daily soft drinks, cut down on the beer at night and made a simple eating plan for myself.

Diet

My diet was kind of boring, I ate the same thing day-in and day-out for about 6 months until I was able to control my appetite. I have a bit of an OCD personality, so this worked. Finally I got tired of it and then I was able to make sensible food choices.

Suggestions for Others

Blog! Blogging gives you a release! Seek the support of friends and family. I let my husband and my brother, my mother and several friends have access to my blog so they could see what I was doing and how I was progressing. That made me accountable for my mission!

Find a great trainer and/or workout partner. Get someone who will push you! There is no way in this world I could have done this alone! Marty has been the best. I love him! He calls me "Tank" during my workouts, because the "Tank" keeps on rolling!
