“I’m ready to show all the female recruits coming into the USCG Boot Camp that you can be fit, fabulous and confident while being a badass and serving our country! “

Did You Struggle With Fitness Prior To Joining Bombshell?
I couldn’t find balance between eating and working out. I hated myself. Self confidence was at an all time low.
How Did Bombshell Help You Achieve Fitness Success?
Bombshell gave me the power to gain confidence again. Even the littlest change made me feel like I won a million bucks! Bombshell also provided me the best group of sisters on the planet. You won’t find a better support system anywhere else.
How Do You Now Feel About Your Body?
I look flawless, and it’s going to keep getting better! That’s a fun part! Lol
What Are Your Goals Going Forward?
I’m ready to show all the female recruits coming into the USCG Boot Camp that you can be fit, fabulous and confident while being a badass and serving our country! Also competing in my first NPC show in June is a major goal!

“One word I never would have used before was PROUD when I looked in the mirror, but I can honestly say that now.”

Did You Struggle With Fitness Prior To Joining Bombshell?
Yes, consistency was my main struggle. Being motivated to go day after day and creating my own workout and eating plan, even though I had a personal trainer was difficult. I had success, but wasn’t equipped before like I am now to continue the success. Bombshell gives you all 3 key pieces, all you have to do is execute.
How Did Bombshell Help You Achieve Fitness Success?
Bombshell reinforced that everyone’s journey is different and to focus on my own journey, no one else’s. Being a Bombshell gave me a built in community of unconditional and unwavering support. I thought for so long I wasn’t Bombshell material, and I’ve learned that any woman, regardless of weight IS a Bombshell, she just has to believe in herself. Bombshell also gave me an amazing work ethic while working out. Even though the plans are provided for me, I still have to push myself and get that work in. I do that now with ease. Bombshell has also helped me change my mindset to know that I AM WORTHY. They gave me a home to belong, and for the first time in my life, I feel and KNOW that I belong and am accepted as is, which has been key to me being successful. It changed within first, which translated to my external transformation.
How Do You Now Feel About Your Body?
I am amazed quite honestly of my current physique. I never thought I’d have usable muscles, but I do. I didn’t think some of what I considered my problem areas would start to take shape, but they are. I am proud of my current fluffy physique and look forward to the changes I’ll make in the upcoming year. One word I never would have used before was proud when I looked in the mirror, but I can honestly say that now.
What Are Your Goals Going Forward?
Going forward, my goal is to continue to lose fat and build muscle. I would like to compete one day, haven’t picked a division yet. If I just get on stage once, I’d be ok with that. I want to show that with the proper team behind you, like Bombshell, even a 480+lb woman can hit the stage without bariatric surgery and with plain hard work, sweat and patience. My goal is to represent all the Bombshell stands for in the B-Transform and B-Competitive divisions.

“Bombshell Fitness taught me that with the right attitude I can do anything that I want.”

Did You Struggle With Fitness Prior To Joining Bombshell?
Yes, just as so many other women, I had struggled with my body. I have suffered from eating disorders in the past years–bulimia has been a dark shadow of my life. Always trying to be skinny, but not so worried about being healthy. I was always counting my calories and always thinking about ‘useful’ toilets before going out. That was not a normal life. It was an unhappy life only focused on binge eating or not eating good. Now I’m finally out from that period and am enjoying my life fully.
How Did Bombshell Help You Achieve Fitness Success?
I think that the most important thing that I’ve learned is to take care and respect myself fully, firstly my mind and then my body. Bombshell Fitness taught me that with the right attitude I can do anything that I want. I do not have not to punish myself, because I have a piece of chocolate or a pizza. Instead, I now think that by following my plan most of the time, I can reward myself with a happy moment with chocolate or a new dress that can make me feel more confident. I have the power to make the right choice for me everyday. Me and only me have the power to chose the life that I want to live, and I have to work hard daily to be the person that I would like to meet tomorrow.
How Do You Now Feel About Your Body?
Finally now, I’ve learned to be not so negative about my body. I’m still working on this attitude to be less critical, but the difference is that now I look in the mirror and finally I see the hard work that I chose to do daily. I feel better in my skin and definitely more confident in my good points.
What Are Your Goals Going Forward?
I’m still in the off season and using the extra calories to improve my body. The stage is not so far, so one of my goals is to build a better package for the future shows and step up on that stage with more self-confidence and with my newly built mental strength. But, the long term goal for me is to work daily on my mind and on my body to be able to be happy with the person that I’ve become.

“I feel HAPPY, beautiful and so much more confident!!!”

Did You Struggle With Fitness Prior To Joining Bombshell?
I’ve always struggled with maintaining progress. I’ve tried different methods of workouts in the past few years, such as group fitness and personal training. With all, however, I reach a point of comfort and stop. I get bored with the classes and my training sessions are hard to schedule with my work schedule. I’ve also not had a steady nutrition plan in the past.
How Did Bombshell Help You Achieve Fitness Success?
Bombshell takes the “guesswork” out of living the healthy lifestyle. The plans, the coaches, the exercise library. I even learn things and get motivation through my Bombshell sisters every day. All the tools are provided!
How Do You Now Feel About Your Body?
I feel HAPPY, beautiful and so much more confident!!! The motto I follow is…”I’m not where I want to be, but I’m not where I used to be, either.” There’s always room for growth and improvement!
What Are Your Goals Going Forward?
I would love to see my 130s in the first 3 months of 2017, and prepare for the stage either at the end of 2017 or beginning of 2018. But even more than numbers and improving my physique, I want to use my newly-found beauty and confidence to improve my life on all levels–financially, spiritually, emotionally, professionally. I see 2017 as a big year for me!

“I am stronger than I have ever been! I never thought I could get to the point I have with my physique.”

Did You Struggle With Fitness Prior To Joining Bombshell?
Yes! I tried all kinds of things, had quite a few personal trainers and I was always up or down. Nothing would stick, and I could never maintain any kind of weightloss. I’d usually give up before even reaching my goals.
How Did Bombshell Help You Achieve Fitness Success?
The sisterhood of women is like none other! The amount of support I get on a daily basis allows me to push harder than I ever thought possible. Also, having an amazing coach to help stay accountable who always has the right thing to say, never makes you feel bad about yourself if you had a bad week and always sticks with you through your ups and downs. This I found is what kept me going and I never gave up even when I had my down moments. I wouldn’t stay down for too long and would come back even stronger. The old me would have just given up at these points and gained all the weight back. This is why I have been successful and achieved my goal of making it on stage for the first time!
How Do You Now Feel About Your Body?
I am stronger than I have ever been! I never thought I could get to the point I have with my physique. I know what I’m capable of now and there’s nothing holding me back! I am more confident than I have ever been!
What Are Your Goals Going Forward?
Now that I have proven I can transform my body however I want, my goal is to maintain this fit lifestyle and continue competing in the NPC. This is really just the beginning for me and the possibilities are endless–especially with Bombshell Fitness by my side!
