Motivation....What a weekend!

I competed in my second figure competition on Saturday night, I placed third in my age group! But that's not the motivation!

The women that were there competing as well were the motivation!

There was a 50 year old competing for the first time!
There was a woman that lost 100 pounds in a year, was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, re-diagnosed... not cancer, but she did have large tumors that had to be removed! She competed for the first time!
A woman body builder competed for the first time who was 5 foot tall and once weighed 240 pounds! She said that she was forty and could walk upstairs and knew she had to do something!
There was this 6 foot tall beauty who lost 90 pounds and competed in fitness and figure competition!
All of the women were so nice and supportive it was an awesome event! It inspires me to better myself and continue on my journey of figure competitions!

"My life tomorrow will be the result of my attitudes and the choices I make today."
