Courtney Wise – Transformation Contest presented by NW Fitness Magazine / Williams Productions

My story is all about me. I didn’t have anyone tell me I needed to loose weight. I didn’t have anyone name call or put me down. I had positive people in my life who always supported me.

My story comes from me being unhappy. Me always complaining about my weight. Me always dreading clothes shopping because I didn’t like the way I looked. My self confidence was down. I had a hard time doing physical activities that I loved, or knew I couldn’t try some.

I woke up one day and wondered, “Why am I complaining? Why haven’t I started? What is keeping me from obtaining what I want?”

Then answer was simple, it was me. I was depressed. I was overweight. I threw myself a pity party every other day. The only thing keeping me from obtaining what I wanted was myself. I only had myself to blame.

That was all it took. It took me starting action. I began simple, with adjusting my diet (though I knew nothing about it) and cardio. Some gym classes-  an unexperienced newbie in the gym who was terrified to even use the machines, because I was afraid to look “untrained” like I didn’t know what I was doing.

Every pound that shed, and every new person I met with a passion for fitness, put a little spark into my motivation. I picked the brains of those who let me. I graduated to “upstairs” where the weight lifting section resided. I moved to the free weight section TERRIFIED. I hired a personal trainer and learned so much more. I was HOOKED. It was now my passion. My stress relief. My fun.

What I learned was it is a community. A community of people who have similar goals and are your cheerleader. They will help guide you, stand by your side, sing your praises, and pick you back up when you fall.

I have fallen, I have picked myself up. I have educated myself. I have grown. I have lost wight. I have gained it. I have gained muscle. I have lost it. I have found my happy place. I am confident. I am happy. I am proud.

I went from 189 pounds – size 16/18 jeans, to a size 2. It wasn’t a fad diet, it wasn’t a gimmick, it wasn’t a weight loss pill. It was ME. I choose to put in the hours, log my food and educate myself. I love inspiring those like me. I love the path I have chosen. PROUD AND HAPPY.

Clarence Watkins – Transformation contest

Four years ago I weighed over 325LBS and I was very unhappy and seen no light for my future. I had no friends so the only way I seen to comfort myself was through food. I ate and ate until my heart was content or till I was happy. By the time I was 22 I had reached 325LBs I decided that it was time to change and start living a better, healthier life. I started on my 22nd birthday with my weight loss journey. First by cutting out all bad food then started going to the track everyday and run. Before I knew it I started running more longer than I did the last time and the weight started melting off. For 2 1/2 years I did this. I then started working at the YMCA in my town and I meet a group of guys that were physique and bodybuilding competitors and they suggested I started lifting with them. At first I was like “I don’t want to get big again”. They told me that I wouldn’t so I agreed and started lifting with the in October of 2013. They proceeded to suggest that I should compete before I could even think I went off of impulse and registered for NPC Vancouver that following April. I can’t lie, it was one of the best decisions I had made in my life. The people, the lifestyle is truly amazing and I never thought that I would be among these type of people. I absolutely love it.

Christina Mangan, Inspirational Story – NW Fitness Magazine

Every single person in this world is destined for their own greatness, some it comes easier than others some harder, but every single one has their own struggles and hardships trying to stop their own personal greatness. Mine, well it has been a bumpy road from a younger age but I always seemed to rise above, but as of the last 5+ years those struggles became harder and I am now at the point I am trying to rise again.
My name is Christina, and I am 27 years young! When you look at me you see normality but little do you know I am nowhere near normal, titanium is more like it. After getting accepted into College on a Track scholarship and was studying Athletic Training and exercise science! Things were looking up! I got a great opportunity where I traveled with cheer and dance camps during the summer and was their first aider! I was almost done with my first summer doing that and about to

head back to my Sophomore year in college, when I was traveling to one of the last camps for the summer from Denver to Nebraska and was struck from behind on the highway by a semi Truck. I ended up braking my neck and needing spinal surgery and suffered brain damage. I attempted to finish college regardless, but the brain damage and accident ended up affecting me and I had to drop out and get surgery. It was a rough road to recovery and I was finally getting clear and being able to cope with my brain damage in a way that seemed to work with me. I ended up moving here to WA and started to finally get the courage to try and grasp my life again and make a name for myself again. I joined the Seattle Mist, apart of the Legends Football League (women’s armature football league) and was getting in there and feeling like a new me again when a few months into the season I was going to a Seahawks post season game and was hit head on by a drunk driver. Here I was again sitting behind the wheel feeling my life shatter in my lap. I re injured my neck on multiple levels and fractured my knee. After recovering my knee I returned home to Denver where my doctor was to get another spinal surgery. After everything was heeling great I was going into the Dr for my doctor appointment to clear me back to physical exercise and possibly the Seattle mist again, we found out that the work we just did broke and I was rushed back into surgery. I am now 3 spinal surgeries and whole neck full of metal in, and needing a lower back surgery to finish everything up, hopefully, I decided that instead of being the “disabled” girl everyone sees me as

and treats me as, I am going to take my life back. I am going to stop letting my life be dictated by doctors and surgeries and car accidents and I am going to run it. As we all can tell I love being fit, but after gaining over 40lbs from all the surgeries, I knew I had work. So I joined the Safe fitness team with Tanji Johnson, and stayed apart of the Seattle mist as much as I can while I recover. I am now 30lbs into my weight loss and though I am not there fully yet, I will be getting on the stage for the first time this June to start my fitness competition life. Is it easy no, would it be easier to accept disability and spend everyday on my couch and bed hardly leaving it, yes, but that’s not me, that’s not my destiny. Now I have always be able to help people and I pray that chasing this life and taking it into my hands I show people that they CAN do anything they want to do as long as they try, as long as they take their life into their hands and use the excuses that could be say I can and I will regardless of what life throws at me because we get one shot and lets make it worth it! I am here to show everyone that says I can’t, I wont, its too hard, I should just be in a bed…..SAY I WONT….AND I WILL! No burden is too strong for me, I am strong, I mean I am made of titanium! 😉 Bring on the new obstacles I got this! WE GOT THIS!

As told by Julie Sheldon, Bens Mom…

Ben Yada, Inspirational fitness story

“I want to introduce you to an extraordinary young man, my son, Ben Yada.  Ben’s mission in life was to become a member of the Navy Seals.  Unfortunately, that dream was not to be due to a peanut allergy which kept him from enlisting in the military. On April 6, 2003, Ben crashed his CBR 954 motorcycle on the Alaskan Way Viaduct in Seattle, WA.  He went off the upper level falling approximately 30 ft. to the freeway below.  Fortunately, he was near Harborview Medical Center where he remained for nearly 3 months.  Ben was in a coma for weeks and his recovery required him to learn to breath on his own, swallow, speak, walk, all over in addition to polytrauma (ankles, pelvis, sacrum, ribs, jaw, internal bleeding, multiple infections, blood clots, ventilator, etc.) including injuries requiring a dozen surgeries.

 

Despite what doctors can only describe as a miracle (expected to be in a permanent vegetative state), Ben has completed an

Associate Degree and a Bachelor of Science degree in General Studies from Central Washington University.  Ben has always been very involved in physical fitness, particularly weight lifting and body building, and was a certified personal trainer with Powerhouse’s Gym in SeaTac, WA at the time of the accident. His motivation to recover and getting back to the gym gave him his life back.  The photo of Ben by the red Mustang was taken approximately 18 months after the accident.

Ben decided to train for the Emerald Cup which has a long history in the Seattle bodybuilding community.  He bulked up to 285 lbs. and on the day of the competition, he weighed 196 lbs.  The competition was held on May 8 & 9, 2015 at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, WA.  There were over 500 competitors in all

categories.  Ben received the Most Inspirational award in front of a packed house and received a standing ovation.  The NPC WA State Men’s Physique is Ben’s second competition and his goal is continual improvement.

Ben has been an inspiration to me.  I saw him fight his way back from the brink of death.  Ben continues to attend the brain injury support group at Harborview Medical Center, as his work schedule allows, to help others facing similar circumstances.  He gives hope to families and friends of loved ones facing the uncertain world of recovery.  Ben is a member of the Power Team at Life Change Church and is an inspiration to all who know him.  He sets goals for himself and he achieves them.  Ben’s goal in life is to help others.”
