    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).

    Update as of October 2014- Since my original story I have competed in two bodybuilding competitions, placing second and first respectively, as well as two powerlifting competitions, one of which set a world record for deadlift for my weight class. I continue to workout and balance the fun things in life with maintaining fat loss.

    *For those of you who have been asking, I wrote a guide on how I lost the weight. You can find it here:

    Congratulations, I hope to be like you. I am actually in the process of a divorce from my Italian husband of 4 years and had to move back to the country and into my parents house. I'm in the same boat you were and am trying to lose some weight to bring up my self esteem and ease the depression a little bit. Sorry you had to go through it, I know what it feels like. But I'm glad you were able to turn your situation around.
