Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Erma Shirley and her voters for helping us donate to our injured United States military veterans!

What would you recommend to others who want to be fit and healthy?

Start, the hardest part is just getting started! You have to want change for yourself. You wont always be motivated but push through and keep going. Results are addictive and worth it.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

I started losing weight over 2 years ago. I went from morbidly obese(235lbs) to fit (135lbs). Last year I started bodybuilding and did my first competition December 2018. This is a lifestyle for me now and I am truly happy. My coaches guide me with my workouts and diet. Bodybuilding makes me a happier mom, wife and nurse! That's a win for everyone.

If you were the next Ms Health and Fitness, what would you do with $20,000?

My son needs braces. It's expensive and not covered by insurance. The rest I would save. Just in case. Maybe buy myself that sparkly figure suit I wanted.
