I am so glad I decided to give the Bikini Challenge a try! It was completely out of my comfort zone but I’m always searching for empowering experiences and this seemed to be perfect. I’ve been a member of The Fitness Asylum for almost two years and have had great success. Before doing Bikini I had lost and maintained over 60 lbs. With Bikini that loss increased to 75 lbs!
I had some major fears going into Bikini – could I follow the meal plan? Could I work out enough? Could I walk in heels without falling on my face? Could I handle posing classes? Could I really wear a tiny bikini at the end? I decided that I wasn’t going to focus on those fears; I would just take one day at a time. As the weeks went by the weight dropped off, my body became stronger, and I realized that I was really enjoying the process. The sense of camaraderie among the team was amazing and I made some awesome new friends. By the time show day rolled around I was feeling pretty badass!
Getting on stage was thrilling, terrifying, exhilarating, and awesome! I’m so glad I went through with it and now I’m completely looking forward to next time! I am healthier, stronger, and happier than I’ve ever been in my life and I owe so much of it to my family at The Fitness Asylum!
