After I won the @bodybuildingcom #250kchallenge, I found myself dwelling on that past success. Now don't get me wrong, that competition has forever played a huge part in my life. It has forever changed me & I'm so grateful. But, deep down, I knew I was uncomfortable with looking at that achievement and feeling like there was nothing else but the past. I knew (and I know now) that I am much more than just the 2016 "transformation challenge winner". Yea, I lost some weight. But the real win has been learning from the mistakes I made after the challenge was over and my ability to pick up the pieces to become better. Today, I weigh the same as I did at the end of the 2016 challenge. I almost doubted I'd ever see that number again. But now, that number doesn't really matter. I'm stronger now. I'm tighter. I'm so much more mentally prepared and able to continue my goal of staying consistent. My mission is to find MY definition of true overall health and wellness, attain it and maintain it. That's a tall order! But I've noticed that, these small achievements in between, are allowing me to become more and more acquainted with myself. I love the saying, "To achieve something you've never achieved, you must become someone you've never been". I truly believe that's happening.
