At a petite 5’ 2”, I am not genetically gifted with good muscular development. However, I trained hard, was very dedicated to my diet, and did exactly what I was told me to do. I felt a lot of anxiety on April 11, 1998 when I stepped on stage in just a posing suit. Most of my competitors had better muscle development and had been training much longer than me. (Normally, that would have sent my confidence right outrepparttar window.) However, my routine was graceful and my poses weren’t bad either! The audience was very supportive and my self-confidence soared. I won a medal that day.

In my mind, I accomplished everything I set out to do. I gained valuable experience and many of my fears and hang-ups were conquered. I have never felt such confidence, satisfaction, and pride in myself. I have come a long way overrepparttar 131107 years and achieved many goals, but that contest changed my life tremendously. It is difficult to put into words, but I have not feltrepparttar 131108 same since that day.

Overrepparttar 131109 years my family and friends have noticedrepparttar 131110 positive change in my health, attitude, and self-confidence. I have taken other steps to improve in those areas and to heal from my past. However, bodybuilding has beenrepparttar 131111 one thing that has maderepparttar 131112 biggest difference in my life. It has made so much difference that I became a certified personal trainer. Through my new business, Trinity Coaching Services, I now combine fitness training and personal development coaching to help others reaprepparttar 131113 benefits of a healthy lifestyle. I have continued to compete once or twice a year, simply because it is vital for my self-esteem.
