I wasn't happy with my body or myself. I suffered from severe depression, contemplating if each day was even worth it. And Im type 1 Diabetic, so i wanted to better my health. At my worst I was around 5 foot 4 and 200 pounds! So i decided to start trying to lose weight. After 6 months of on and off training i got down to 125. I was so happy, all of my problems were cured. And my diabetes was under great control. But I had no muscle! So I started researching and starting taking diet and training seriously.
Why I Love it
I love the feeling. I love seeing my body change week by week, getting bigger and stronger. It gives me something to strive for. Its a sport that not everyone can do, it takes a lot of dedication and discipline. its a sport where you stand alone. You have to fight through for yourself to succeed.
