4) How did you overcome those problems? What specific techniques did you use to make your dreams a reality?

A 4) Denise would be hard on me and tell me not to waste her time. She was right andrepparttar harder she was on merepparttar 150487 better I was. She use to say "Do you want it"? In my mind that made me strive far and never give up.

5) Moving forward and knowing what you know now, what would you have done differently?

A 5) I would've signed on with Kim Oddo inrepparttar 150488 beginning . It took me four years because I didn't eat much protein and then for a few years didrepparttar 150489 no carb diet which was a total waste of time.

6. What would you have donerepparttar 150490 same way, and will continue to do, going forward?

A 6) CARDIO BABY! It burns calories, raises endorphins, relieves stress, etc.

7. Do you feel that ongoing feedback and motivational tools would help in maintaining a fitness program? For example, appearing inrepparttar 150491 June, 2005 issue of Ironman must be very motivational. This won't be a motivational tool most people can use. Before achieving that type of success, what types of motivational tools did you lose to keep going? After all, you don't lose 70 pounds of fat overnight and it must've taken some time before you could seerepparttar 150492 positive changes inrepparttar 150493 mirror.

A 7) What some people don't realize is a support team can berepparttar 150494 most important thing in training to reach a hard goal. I truly believe in having a great trainer like Joanne Rubienstein, Kim Oddo, Stephen Bauer or Denise Hart.

I personally love to train so I don't need motivation to get torepparttar 150495 gym but whenrepparttar 150496 results slow down I need someone to tell me that I can do it. What kept me going wasrepparttar 150497 belief that I could do it and proverepparttar 150498 world wrong.

Sometimes it feels like my job is to prove people wrong. They talk their talk but inrepparttar 150499 end I will accomplish what I'm striving for and they'll look dumb for saying that I'll never achieve my goal. Sorry if that was a little pissy, but I get tired of people doubting me. If I can drop 40% body fat I think I can make it to Olympia!

8. If you were to advise a close friend or family member hot to follow in your fitness footsteps, what would you tell them?

A 8) Run far away and find an enjoyable job! I truly believe I did all this because of fate. I don't even really rememberrepparttar 150500 time I said I want to be a competitor. The diets and training are tough and rewarding atrepparttar 150501 same time. I have accomplished a lot but I also sacrifice a lot of things in life that are enjoyable.

All I can say is I'm going after a DREAM and won't give up until I accomplish it. It's not only for me, it's forrepparttar 150502 general population that has lost belief in themselves. My advice is to go after your dreams, believe in yourself and getrepparttar 150503 right people to help you. That'srepparttar 150504 key to being successful!
