157 lbs was the weight I began this prep at. 18 weeks ago, I told myself I was going to prep and stick 100% to it. I was scared that I was not fully mentally recovered from the harsh prep I did last year, but as this picture shows, that fear was temporary. I've put in so much work in 18 weeks and continued to even when life hit me hard with many difficult circumstances. This isn't only a 27 lbs progress pic. This shows a girl who was once in a difficult stage in life (trying to balance social life with my goals and ambitions), to a girl who is working towards her goals each and every day and knows that she will ACHIEVE or die trying! Proud of my growth emotionally, spiritually, and intellectually❤ Although this sport may seem like it's all about body image to the outside world, it is more than just that. The growth one experiences in weeks of hard work and constant grinding is indescribable... This sport has brought me so many blessings and this is JUST THE BEGINNING!
