My Story Part 3

After more than 30 years in the fitness industry. On what would have been my husbands 60th birthday I competed in my first fitness bikini competition. I also had the privilege of   enjoying this experience with my daughter. It has been a long road to self discovery since I first experienced tragedy a few years ago. But, I am finally living the life that was meant for me.

Throughout my 20 week transformation preparing for this competition.

I have learned….that I am a survivor.

I  have learned….that I am capable of achieving any goal that I set out for myself.

I  have learned….that my past does not define me. 

I have learned….to love myself just as I am.

The girl in my before picture is someone I hardly recognize. That girl was unhappy, afraid, depressed and uncertain about her future. The woman that is in the post competition picture not only lost 30 lbs. But, she is confident, self assured and excited about her future. I have learned….that I am a strong, confident, independent woman who is deserving of love and happiness again.                                                                                                                        ” Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.” J.K. Rowling.            “Life isn’t ​ about waiting for the storm to pass. It`s about learning how to dance in the rain.” Vivian Greene.
