Ever since I was young, around 11-12 yrs. old, I loved to look at the fitness magazines. My mother would buy me the magazines each month and I would dream of being a bodybuilder come day, never thinking that my dreams would ever come true. I workout out a little here and there throughout the next 10 years, but had no real plan or guidance. It wasn't until I met my husband in 1996, that I really started training hard. He saw the potential that I had and helped me to achieve where I am today. He's extremely supportive and patient even when I'm dieting. And, my mother is just as supportive now as she was back when I first began dreaming of the sport. She and my step-dad never miss a show! I have to say that without them, I would not be where I am today!
