I own my own company with my husband and work very hard at providing a good life for my family. I have been married for over 25 years now and am the most blessed woman on the planet! My husband is very supportive and wants me to succeed at whatever I put my mind to. We have an amazing relationship!

Like a lot of people, I have struggles with my weight. In 2000, I won a class with the Maxformation for the Women's group 35-45. I was elated and it changed my life. I went on to compete in Women's Figure in the NPC. During the MaxFormation I lost over 50lbs. It truly felt like a great accomplishment. I was very blessed to be a part of the MaxMuscle Team and was blessed to be put in their book on Fitness.

But then I went to work for myself and the hours were long. I found myself creeping away from my life of fitness and all the friends I had made within the industry. I started to feel depressed about my weight and my lack of ambition and wondered what was wrong with me. Soon, I went to the doctor and they prescribed anti-depressants. That was a new low for me. I had quit drinking and smoking when I was 21 because of family issues with it and my own so to have to resort to another drug was very hard for me. But I took it and I did start to feel better. I stayed on them for 1 year, and then felt good enough to get a release by my doctor to stop them.

I started out in fitness much later then most people at the age of 38. I competed until I was 42. I didn't realize after, that I was having hormone issues and this was the cause of a lot of my emotional and physical issues. Once the doctor explained this I felt like a curtain had been lifted!

So now I am 50! And I am entering the MaxFormation again! The number one reason is to get off of the blood pressure medication I am now on. Last Christmas, I suffered a stroke and was hospitalized for 3 days...and now I am ready to begin my journey once more to a healthier life! I am excited beyond belief to have another opportunity to get myself fit and healthy! I probably will never compete again in Fitness, but just to be in shape and off the medications is a reward in itself! I want my family to be proud of me for accomplishing this goal and I want to set an example...

I am READY to begin!
