I am nothing special. My story isn't much different than others. I struggled, I was a heavy child, and went to college and gained. I became the heaviest I ever was (and will be). I was unhappy with myself. I was unhealthy. I choose to make a difference in my life, I struggled, it wasn't easy, but 10 years later I am the healthiest, the fitest and the happiest I have ever been. I made my choice a lifestyle, not a fad.

Food is my friend, not my enemy. The gym is not a torture chamber.

My passion now is to help others through fitness and just health in general. I am a Les Mills instructor in BodyCombat and GRIT series. I just started back to lifting heavy on my own. I eat clean, and I am extremly happy in a relationship with someone who understands me (we actually me at my gym).

I believe that it's all about you, once you come to the conclusion that you want to look good for yourself and no one else, then you can achieve that goal!

My Goals:
To maintain my weight. I would love to lose a little body fat, but to maintain and to motivate others is my biggest goal.

My Program:
I teach fitness 3-4 days a week. When I'm not teaching, I'm practiting to make sure I'm fit enough to teach the program. I run, and lift when I find the time. I also do yoga once and week and dance (even though I don't teach it anymore)

Personal Information:

Other Information:
I want to stay toned and keep up on my goal for 1 reason, my father. He gave up everything when my brother, sister and myself were born. He had dreams just as we do, and I want to live out his dream of body building for him.

    Thanks for sharing on my thread about the last straw -- I was reading through your sparkpage too -- very inspiring. I'm just getting started, and finding it helpful to really think about what my motivations are. Thanks for the post!

    Hi there and a belated WELCOME to SparkPeople and the SPClass of January 6-12, 2008!
    There's a thread on the team page called POPULAR QUESTIONS where a LOT of questions have been posed and answered. Take the time to read through it as questions you have may have been answered on there - and you may find some questions you DIDN't know you had! Use this board for Q&A only as it is something of a chore to wade through if you're looking for a specific item. (And for me to have to find the most recent question to answer! LOL) Thanks for Understanding!
    Participation can be a GREAT motivator! I encourage you to read the threads, post replies, start your own topic! Come by and Introduce yourself to everyone – this is a GREAT team of CARING people! Use the nutrition and fitness trackers so you can see your progress and your blog so you can review, later, how you felt on your journey. It will also help others to see your success!
    We're the LARGEST TEAM in SparkPeople. I'm hoping that we will have the largest number of PARTICIPATING team members as well!
    Good luck on your weight loss goal and your quest to a healthier lifestyle!
