In 2006, I started changing my diet little by little so that I could stick with it and not burn out. Then I started increasing the frequency and intensity of my workouts. I talked to a personal trainer friend who helped me figure out what to do to achieve my goals. I also purchased an online competition prep package...it helped me develop some discipline, but I later learned it was just a cookie cutter diet that was not suited to my direct needs. I continue researching and learning about my own body and how it responds best. It's been great to see what I can accomplish with the help of all the awesome information on Bodybuilding.com. There are NO excuses for not living a fit lifestyle with this wonderful free resource.
Why I Love it
I LOVE seeing my body change in ways that I didn't even know were possible. I love the challenge, and seeing friends and family inspired and moved to action by what I am doing. It keeps me on track because I don't want to let them down. I have dropped three clothing sizes and 1/2 a shoe size! I didn't even know that was possible!
