What Made Me "ME"
My traine Kevin Fletcher is awsome. I couldn't do it without him!
My Body Proud Moments
Ever since I can remember I have been interested in fitness. I started going to the gym when I was 11 years old. I love pushing my body’s limits, and watching myself get stronger. I find it extremely rewarding to persevere at something and see great results. I have always found joy in challenging myself. I remember how I loved watching all those fit people at the gym do their workouts but being so young I had no idea how to do what they were doing. Growing up, my eating habits were horrible, and I was unhealthy even though I was very active. I was always overweight and unhappy with the way I looked. Many times I tried diets to get to where I wanted to be but I always ended up falling off the wagon and each time it would make my bad habits worse. It came to the point when I became so unhappy with my body, that I started to feel depressed about it. My confidence level deflated and I was turned to unhealthy methods of weightloss in order to achieve my goals.
A year ago my friend motivated me to join him at the gym he got a membership for because he was competing in a fitness competition. He wanted someone to support him through the workouts and keep him motivated. I was the perfect friend for that because I love the gym, and motivating other people, motivates me.
As months went by, I watched his body transform. He became strong, fit, healthy and that was very motivating for me to see. I went to see him compete in a fitness competition for Fame and it inspired me to get fit. I resolved right then and there to stop being sick and tired because I was sick and tired of feeling that way. Seeing the people in the competition so fit really raised my spirits, and I thought I can do it too. I knew how much effort they had to put into getting their bodies to that fitness level, because I saw my friend go through it. They weren’t any different from me, and they did it, so I thought, I don’t have an excuse; I can do it too.
In September I started training. It has been a long journey getting to where I am today. I am absolutely pumped to know that the competition is now just a few short weeks away. Since September I have lost 32 pounds and it’s the happiest I’ve ever been with my body. After all the struggles I had growing up and trying to find a balance that worked for me, I feel it’s been a long time coming. Now, I feel like I’m in a new body. I feel strong. I have learned how to keep focused on my goals and dreams and not let anyone tell me what I can or can’t accomplish. I have stopped letting negative people into my head and my dreams. Those people that instead of feeling inspired by what I do, feel like they have to justify their lives by bringing me down. I have learned to be patient and disciplined which has helped me in all aspects of my life, including my budding career.
I love helping people accomplish their goals and work on bettering themselves. My passion in life is to empower and enroll people into their lives so that they can achieve whatever they want to in life. Since September, I have not only inspired those around me with fitness and health but also with my other achievements. I really see what a impact feeling good about your body has on everything else a person does in life. We have to start from ourselves and work outwards.
