How I Got Started

My motivation was driven by several factors converging in my life at one time. I was turning 35, leaving a sad job that drained my soul and returning to law enforcement (my passion). My divorce was finally over and I felt a need to re-invent myself stronger and better than I had been before.

I Needed To Reinvent Myself.

I set many a goal to lose weight and be skinny, tried several fad diets and ended up confused as to how to eat, what to eat and why to eat at all.

Lost, I turned to the Internet, I researched health, fitness and weight training. Bodybuilding.com's site popped up, and in it I found a treasure trove of information, the transformations were inspiring and I found myself addicted. I couldn't get enough. I began to buy fitness magazines and re-read my old muscle and fitness books.

My family called me "obsessed" and expressed concern over my new zealousness. I didn't care, I saw the possibility of reaching my goals and the chance to finally keep up with my 6- and 4-year old children.

Remembering Michelle Rice's transformation, in January 2006, I contacted Tres Bennett and Shannon Meteraud of Charleston S.C. for nutritional advice and guidance. They challenged me to follow their advice and back it up with action.

Compete in a figure contest. "NO problem" I thought.

I took photos from week to week to track my changes. The changes I saw on the outside were nothing compared to the changes occurring on the inside. I fell in love with the feeling of well being and the quiet peaceful spirit happening inside of me, these changes spurred me from week to week.

4 Months Later.

4 months later ... PALMETTO CUP Contest day ... I was so nervous I shook like a leaf during pre-judging. It was the BEST experience, overcoming my fears revealing to the world my improved body and spirit. I wouldn't trade the experience for anything.
