I had struggled to get extra weight off both after having my son and grieving over the hard loss of my grandma Bev. She was a rock of my life. I didn’t enjoys lots of bad food, I just didn’t have the right portion control or exercise in my life. August of last year I made the decision it was finally my time to compete in a national pageant; however I knew that competition would mean I would really have to buckle down and focus on the weight loss and getting ready for competition. January of this year I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.. So you could say it was a perfect storm of things that were now directing me to get my weight loss and health in check. I began working with the pageant sponsors. Toned to Win. They started me on a hydro water program, a portioned controlled plate and small work outs until I built up my works out to included 6 to 8 mile runs daily. From February to July I went from 171 to 131. The goal weight was 119 for nationals. While I didn’t make the goal weight before going to pageant nationals, I made a whole new me, that is happier, healthier, and now that I am back from nationals I am focused on making my 119 weight. I went from a size 12 to a size 4 and size 2. Life is good, and I have a whole new wardrobe and body!
