    I love it! You have to tell us 2 things...
    1 - How did you do it?
    2 - Did your ex's jaw hit the floor when he saw you???

    I lied, my story really isn't about revenge. But, it started out that way.

    In 2010 my life hit a very low point. I weighed 217 pounds and my husband wanted a divorce. The entire four year marriage had been rough, so divorce was a bit of a relief. The downside of that was having to move across the country and back into my parent's house with two children under the age of two. Being unemployed, a disabled vet, a newly single mom and being fat sucked.

    I decided to get revenge on my ex by losing weight and looking super hot. I failed.

    It wasn't until I just got tired of being fat that I started making the changes that made a difference. Eating well, working out and learning to just love myself. It was no longer about revenge, it was about taking care of me.

    Tomorrow marks a significant point in my life. It marks three years of being single and my first bodybuilding competition. In total I've lost 70 pounds. As a single parent with a full time job and my own little house to take care of I have found a way to get a degree and get in shape all at the same time. I have tons of legitimate excuses to why I can't or don't have the time to eat right and workout. If you want it bad enough you WILL find a way!


    **ETA: Workouts, I just lift heavy and do little cardio. Eating is TDEE-20% and IIFYM (with macros set correctly for my goals).

    You look amazing and should be very, very proud of how far you have come!! Way to go! I am going to send you a friend request cuz you are totally inspiring and I need to drop about 45-50 lbs!!
