My fitness journey started when my ex-husband went to prison for DV. I weighed 192 pounds and had low energy. My son was three with a speech delay and so I made a lifestyle change in order to be a stronger mother. I first did all cardio. Then body pump and suddenly I was introduced to weight lifting. Now I am squatting over 265. Pull-ups. pistol squats, and have recently became vegan.

Most people who meet me now, would never know or guess that I weighed 231lbs back in 2012 or that I suffered (and occasionally still do) from chronic pain. Most people wouldn’t know or guess that I was once one of the most negative or depressed people to talk to. I took ZERO ownership over the person I was. I blamed everything on the car accident I was in 11 years ago. It was an easy excuse, it was easy to pass the blame. After I hit my goal of 81lbs lost, I needed a new way to channel all of my energy. Insert a brief love of cardio. I feel in love with running for about 6 months. Then had a small setback needing my gallbladder removed. After that surgery, I was looking for other ways to stay active but didn’t cause my recent surgery to impact my ability to move. I loved Zumba, RIPPED, insanity, T25, and boot camp classes. In 2014 I was offered my own opportunity to teach and inspire others to push themselves out of their comfort zone through a HIIT class. It was an amazing feeling. While my start into teaching was a little bumpy, I definitely felt passionate about helping others become or transform into the best version of themselves. I have been on this journey of self-love and development for 6 years. 3 years ago I was introduced into weightlifting, and I have been blessed to have some amazing people work with me on training, and diet over the last 3 years. It’s amazing that when you feed your body what it needs vs. what you want how quickly you can grow and build muscle. Hours and hours food prepping, measuring your food, calculating and counting macros, for me, it’s been a worthwhile journey. I am now in the middle of competition prep and have 2 weeks to go. I have loved and hated parts of this journey. But looking back to where I was 3 years ago, 6 years ago, and even 10 years ago…I never thought I would be in the place I am today. I never thought I would be in a place where I can motivate and inspire not just myself but others around me. I am lucky to be able to wake up every day and get to do something I love not for anyone else, but for myself. This allows me to be a better wife, mom, co-worker and friend While I know…trust me I know…taking the first steps is hard, making the commitment to yourself is hard, keeping the promises you made to yourself and others are hard. But I am living proof that if you believe in yourself for just a little bit, that you can do anything you set your mind too.

After years of up and down weight fluctuations, I grew to the weight of 370 pounds. This led to several problems such as high blood pressure, sleep apnea, high cholesterol. Bending over to tie my shoes got me winded. Of course, I always loved lifting weights, but never got my nutrition on point. One day in 2014, I decided I had enough and made a decision to take my body back. My goal that day was to change my lifestyle and compete on stage to celebrate my 50th Birthday. I didn’t quite accomplish my goal at 50, but I did at 51 and am not looking back. I don’t believe I am special, I just decided to do whatever it takes.

Keng Cheah Inspirational Award

I was involved in an auto-motorcycle accident back in 2013. A drunk driver ran me over from the rear while I was waiting to turn left on a motorcycle at a stoplight. My left foot got caught underneath the tire of his F150 truck, which resulted in a shattered ankle joint and broken fibula/tibia. The driver who hit me drove off but was apprehended by the Washington State trooper a few moments later. I was prepping for a local bodybuilding show when the accident happened. Both the doctors at St Joseph Medical Tacoma and Harborview Medical performed a total of 9 surgeries on my left foot. Seven small cleaning preventive surgeries and two major ones. An internal fixation of titanium plate and twelve screws were inserted into my ankle and a patch of skin was taken from my left thigh for a skin graft. I tried to maintain my physique while staying almost 2 months at the hospital. My buddy brought me some elastic bungee so that I can tie it to the hospital bed and get some pump. The recovery and rehab process took awhile since the ligaments and tendons took a hard hit, and they heal a lot slower then the broken joints/bones. I was able to progress from crutches to walking with a cane after 5 months. My body shrunk down to an all-time low weight and there was a point where I actually thought about giving up competitive bodybuilding. I went to the 2013 Emerald Cup in Bellevue WA and that event sparked up my interest on lifting weights seriously again. I had my final surgery in 2015 where the doctors took out the plate and screws from my ankle. I told myself that I will step on stage again within the next 3 years once I recover. Although there is still pain most of the time and I walk with a noticeable limp, I decide to train hard to compete for this year’s 2018 NPC Washington State bodybuilding show. This will be my first time ever participating in NPC federation. I would like people to realize that sometimes in life we often get hit by a big obstacle or barrier. This can be physical,financial, relationship,mental etc. The most important thing is to evaluate life and identify the obstacles, then make up small and big goals to conquer them. It will take time and persistence, but well worth everything in the end. Lost time is not retrievable so we might as well make the best of what we have. Thank you for reading my story. I look forward to having an awesome time on stage.

In 2015 I was very overweight in excess of 375 pounds with a 44 waist. Everything was difficult including bending over to tie my shoes. In addition, I had developed sleep apnea, high blood pressure, and a cholesterol of 370. I decided I was taking my body back and wanted to bodybuild. Since then I lost 180 pounds and have not looked back. Like magic, all my medical problems went away, and as my body became smaller, my world got bigger.

Thank you for taking the time to read about my transformation. I was involved in a motor vehicle accident 5 years ago in which a drunk driver ran me over from the back, while I was stopped at a left turn signal on my motorcycle. My left foot got caught underneath his truck and when he reversed to run away, my entire ankle joint was crushed. The great orthopedic doctors at St Joseph Medical Hospital contemplated about amputating my foot, given the severity of the injury. They decided to save it and a few surgeries later I was fitted with a titanium plate and twelve screws, along with a skin graft surgery taken from the side of my thigh. I had always been an active person who enjoys weightlifting and bodybuilding. The ability to transform oneself through sound training and nutrition always fascinates me. I like the idea that this sport is almost entirely a solo practice, in which you are in control of how much effort you put in every day. After the accident, I wasn’t able to walk for almost 6 months. I progressed from wheelchair to walker, crutches, and cane, then after a lot of physical therapy session was finally able to walk on my own for Mother’s day. I have decided to give up bodybuilding but the passion was ignited once again after attending the NPC Emerald cup. The guests were given a free daily pass to a local gym in Bellevue and I remember sitting on an incline barbell bench for the first time since the accident. I completed one semi struggled set and decided there that I will build up my strength and physique again. Fast forward to 5 years and my last surgery in 2015, I decided to enter this year’s NPC WA State Open bodybuilding competition. My goal is to be able to step on stage as a way to acknowledge the conquer of all the ups and down in the past years. I look forward to meeting my fellow competitors and have a fun time at the event.
