I dedicate my body transformation to my four daughters. My girls are 15, 13, 7 and 6 year old. We have been through a lot together over the past six years. My youngest daughter was born at 24 weeks. She weighed 1 lb 13 oz and the doctors gave her 15% chance of survival. This little gal has been quite the fighter...she beat all the odds against her. She had two surgeries to save her eyesight and continues with the surgeries up through this year. For over a year she was on a heart monitor and needed therapy for three years. I spent my days keeping my daughter safe and helping her learn what most said would be impossible. Today she is in kindergarten where she is doing better then I could have ever imagined.

During the three years I never left my daughters side. All of my other girls helped with chores and learned to care for her as well. I had no idea the lack of exercise was hurting my body. Normally I weighed anywhere between 140-150 pounds. As of April 2012, I weighed 185 lbs, 46% bmi and I was told my bone density was equivalent to a woman in her 60's! At this point I was scared...I was 38 years old...not even 40 yet! If I did not do something, would I even be here to finish raising my girls?

I called my husband who works on the road and told him what was going on with my body and I asked him if we could afford help for me. I never do for me, always do for everyone else. But, this time if I did not choose me I may not be here to do what I do best. I called BOLD Training and met with my Trainer Karen. She is amazing, right beside me the entire way. Since April 2012 I have lost 45 pounds, dropped my bmi over 12% and increased my muscle mass more then 5%.

In August 2012, the owners of Max Muscle East Vancouver Washington store came to our gym to speak on their products and encouraged us to enter 2013 Max Muscle MaxFormation. The next day I came into see my trainer and told her I needed this! I will be 40 in June 2013 and I plan to be at my physical best, wear a bikini out with my husband and feel confident doing it! This man has loved me since we were children and he says "Go for it Babe!" I promise me, all of our children, and my husband......This Momma Can Do It!
