Why I Got Started
I wanted to lose weight for my October 2003 wedding. I had contacted Jenny Hendershott for assistance. When I set a goal, I make sure I achieve it. I had lost 30 pounds for my wedding. I felt really good.
I set another goal to compete in the Spring of 2004 and continued to diet and train. I competed in 3 shows, placing in the top half of my class. I was going to compete again in the fall of 2004. I had quit loosing weight and was having a hard time doing cardio/training.

I was 11 weeks pregnant. I had put on so much weight during my pregnancy, I was disgusted w/ myself. I'm 5-foot tall and put on 58 pounds. I was in Australia assisting Jenny Hendershott w/Phat Camp. I was unable to fully participate in camp because I was so miserable. I returned home and one week later assisted in another Phat Camp. I was even more out of shape. I then made another goal of loosing the weight because I wanted to compete in the fall of 2006.
How I Did It
I achieved my goals by sticking to the diet Jenny Hendershott gave me; I trained w/2 sets of dumbbells and a treadmill in my garage while my daughter was in her swing. I kept myself MOTIVATED. I did all the workouts that we do at Phat Camp and stuck to it. I was going to loose this "baby weight" one way or another.
Sample Week Of Diet:
Everyday was pretty much the same:
- Meal 1 - Cream of wheat w/ Splenda
- Meal 2 - 6 egg whites
- Meal 3 - 1/2 can tuna
- Meal 4 - Grapefruit
- Meal 5 - Protein shake w/ 1/2 cup oats
- Meal 6 - Orange roughy & asparagus
- Meal 7 - Chicken breast w/ 1/2 sweet potato & spray butter
Sample Training Week:
Cardio 7x a week for 1 1/2 hours-2 hours. I would walk in intervals or do sprints.

Suggestions For Others
"Moms," you can loose the "baby weight!"
Set your goals and work hard to reach them. I am a veterinary technician, nail technician, Jenny Hendershott's personal assistant, wife and mom. If I can do it you can too. Don't make excuses, not to work out. You don't have to go to the gym to get a good workout. If you need any motivation feel free to email me at Bearclaw@seidata.com or www.Heather-Bear.com.
Thanks for your time,
