This has by far been one of the biggest accomplishments I have ever achieved. I was never one to showcase my body to the public. I alwayswalked around everyday life covered up always trying to hide the scars on my stomach. When I heard of this challenge I thought, Eh.
I’ll never complete this on my own . Knowing that, I asked my mom if she would join with me to help push me through whatever hardships I may come by and give me the confidence I was lacking.
Well, That was probably one of the best decisions I ever made. I can now say “I love my body” and mean it.
This challenge has helped me realize the meaning behind the word “accountability”. No one can change your life but you! You hear people say it all the time
but until you push yourself through a challenge you never really get it. I come from a background of many medical issues that have always held me back from what I really want to do, one of them being
Diabetes. I have battled my whole life with this illness but when I got married last September I decided I would not let this illness control me anymore. I had had enough.
With an A1c of 8.5 and Weighing 155lbs I was determined. Today my A1c is 5.8, almost normal and I weigh 132 lbs, and I could not be more proud of myself. I set a goal
And not only did I achieved It I did what I thought I couldn’t. I put myself out there on stage half naked for the world to see and rocked it. That is the greatest accomplishment. I want to thank not only the Fitness asylum for giving
me the tools and strength to do this, but also the wonderful staff such as Gail and Amanda! These two ladies truly gave me the courage
I needed to get out there and continue on.
A big thank you to my mother for always believing in me even when I couldn’t believe in myself, and to my
husband who kept me going through all of this. Bonnie, Thank you so much for allowing me to be part of this challenge and this WonderfulFamily that you have created. So here I am to say that yes You can do it and in the end it comes down to one person, You!
