I hated everything. Being in the military I have to take physical fitness tests. I failed and was at risk of being kicked out. I was depressed and resorted to eating more food to feel better.
When I failed my Air Force PT test my career was threatened and I knew I had to make a change.
What Were Your Major Struggles or Challenges?
Clothes didn't fit, hard to breathe, health was at risk, made fun of, always picked last for anything, and I was unable to be the example I needed to be for my children and my troops.

I was told its "impossible" and that I wouldn't be able to lose 100 pounds, step on stage, earn a pro card, and then place top 10 in a pro show...well I did all that and I am continuing to do more. The mind is a powerful tool and most people don't realize it is the single most important part of who you are. You seriously can do anything...I mean ANYTHING if you truly believe in yourself. #fit #fitfam #machinefuel #machine #mtsdemo #mtsnutrition #machinemilitia #MTSstreetwarrior #workharderclothingco #whcc #naturalprocoaching #naturalpro #nattymuscle #naturalbodybuilding #inba #pnba #nga #bodybuilding #boom #weflexwednesday
