Why I Got Started
In July 2008 my father suddenly passed away and it made me realize just how precious and short life is and to live life to the fullest.
During this traumatic time in my life, I continued to gain weight until eventually I hit 141 pounds. I am slowly approaching 40 and decided it was time to change and set a goal for myself.
How I Did It
I have to say, Jen Hendershott really has a way with people. She made me realize I am standing in my away of accomplishing anything, no one else. I thought if these women could do it, why can't I?
I always thought I was in good shape, until I took my "before" pictures and realized I had no shape. I decided to start a workout and diet program that would get me in the best shape possible.
I always wanted to enter a fitness competition but never in my wildest dreams did I think I would look like those girls until I started seeing the results. I was amazed with my transformation and decided to enter my first competition on April 11, 2009 - the Fitness Star Model Search. I didn't win but I am so proud that I did it.
I went from 131.5 pounds and 24.5% body fat to 111 pounds and 12.5% body fat in 12 weeks. I did this by changing my diet to 5-6 smaller meals per day. I kicked up my training to 6 days per week and tried to get 30-45 minutes of cardio in per day.
I am so proud of my hard work and transformation of my body. This was a goal I never thought I would be able to achieve but am now convinced that if I could do it, anyone can. I am a proud mother of two beautiful girls (ages 17 and 10) - I wanted to show them I could accomplish my goals.
In January 2009, I decided to get serious about getting in shape. I hired a personal trainer, Andre Rzazewski, AKA Dre. He has helped me reach a goal I never thought was possible. With his expertise I was able to take my body to a place I never thought was possible. After seeing great results, he encouraged me to compete at the Fitness Star Model Search. Without him, I wouldn't of been able to do it.
After my first competition, I was hooked. I plan to compete in other competitions in 2009 - nothing is holding me back! I am lucky to have my husband and two beautiful daughters' support throughout my journey and my trainer Andre.

Suggestions For Others
I would strongly recommend if anyone was serious about transforming themselves, my suggestion to you is to hire a trainer and have a plan! I never thought that I would be able to transform my body - if I can do it, anyone can.
