21 Aug

Thru my 8 year battle with illness and multiple knee surgeries… Going from a size 0 to over 176 lbs. I lost my ability to be strong and disciplined. I kept getting depressed and giving up on myself. I HATED what I saw in the mirror and I would have anxiety about having to get dressed because none of my clothes fit. I was embarrassed to see my friends in LA because most people remember me as the “Fitness Chic” and in my head I could hear them whispering “OMG Mary got FAT!” (Not that anyone ever said that to me as I said it was all in my head) So then I would get super depressed again and cancel or flake. Not just because of my weight but also because I was feeling so sick for so many years at one point last year I just asked God to take me… “I’m done” (Then we immediately found out WHY I was sick from an intestinal parasite infection) Bikini Body Building Competing again is helping me to get that discipline back because of how committed I HAVE TO BE to a GOAL of strict diet and exercise. (This time as a VEGAN COMPETITOR) These competitions are also helping me to get completely healthy again which is going to benefit not only me but everyone around me, my work, my marriage, my friendships, my attitude, self-confidence, etc. I am also getting my body healthy and strong again to carry a BABY next year within a healthy body! 🙂 Not to mention in just the last week I have had hundreds of postings and emails from people telling me that I am inspiring THEM to get healthy and THAT is PRICELESS and worth everything I am doing 🙂 In a way I feel like I was supposed to have all of these challenges so that I could HELP OTHERS which really is my main purpose in life… The more I can help others every day helps me to be a better human

❤ to U from Mary Lou

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure
    of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
