Jon Knight Inspirational Award
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.
