My journey began in January 2011, I was 28 at the time and 138lbs I'm only 5 feet tall so I was very overweight for my frame. I had always enjoyed being active but somewhere along the line I lost myself and I became depressed and I closed off from people. Then I moved to Timmins ON. and I started spinning again. The instructor was Kate Durst-Suarez and I remember looking at her when she came in and thinking WOW not just because her is fit but her attitude and the way she talked to everyone and made you feel walcome and part of a team. I kept coming back and pushing as hard as I could because of Kate. She showed how to believe in myself again and I'm proud to say that I have lost 35lbs now and I'm currently training with Kate for my first Figure Competition on Nov. 3, 2012 and most of all I'm Happy, Healthy and Strong.
There are not enough words to thank her for helping me to live again.
Thank you Kate Durst from Discover Fitness with Kate Durst and Optimum Nutrition for the best products that really work, it is what she had me use. :)
