Hometown: Williamsburg, Va
I originally started this journey just to get into good enough shape to look half decent on the beach. Once I started seeing results and feeling better about myself it quickly became a habit that I knew wouldn’t die.
I prepped for about 22-24 weeks which breaks down to about 5 months. I changed so much physically, mentally and emotionally. It takes a lot to handle the ups and downs you go through. Your body misses the bad foods and drinks initially and it definitely effects you in more ways than one. I believe what helped me the most is the flexible meal plan that Julie Lohre made for me with a huge substitution list that doesn’t leave you guessing.
What I enjoy most about fitness is working hard to see the results you want for yourself. It’s all about setting personal goals and surpassing them.
My next goal is to take home a first place trophy! I am definitely going to continue to compete and my long term goal is to compete at the pro level.
I can’t imagine myself ever gaining all the weight back or feeling bad about myself again. Loosing the confidence that I’ve worked so hard to build. That’s what keeps my motivated to maintain this lifestyle. Along with the great influence that I have been to my friends and family.
My favorite thing about working with Julie was her willingness to be flexible with food choices and working around my busy schedule. Working in retail doesn’t allow many free hours especially when you train during the holiday seasons like I did. She was able to still provide me with a plan that worked and kept me on track.
The worst thing was that she wasn’t as close as I would have wanted her to be but as often we corresponded over my time with her it felt like she was right there till the end!
