I have been overweight my entire life. I grew up always admiring the bodies of body builders, hoping and dreaming that one day I would look like that. I always followed several Bombshell Athletes and always pictured myself with a body like theirs. As time went by, my urge to become a Bombshell became stronger and stronger but got discouraged because that dream was so far out of my reach. Several times I would fill out an application and not send it because I thought I would get laughed at or be the “fat girl” wanting to be a body builder. Finally, as 2013 came to an end, I made a promise to myself that I was going to work hard and finally make MY DREAM come true and embark on my journey as a Bombshell Athlete. I allowed myself to believe that I AM good enough and that although it was not going to be easy, it would be worth it. Six months in, I look back and Team Bombshell has made me a beautiful woman from the inside out. Being a Bombshell is a lot more than just lifting weights and eating healthy foods. It’s about transforming yourself mentally and physically. The countless support I receive from my coaches and teammates is something I will always be grateful for! Thank you Team Bombshell for bringing me back to life.
