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

Love yourself enough to take that first step and never be afraid to fail. Becoming your fit and healthy self is'nt about the destination, it's about the journey and I promise if you continue to push forward even when you feel defeated you will see your body change in front of your eyes.

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Before my healthy living journey began i was 216lbs. Today I am a healthy and fit 140lbs. Besides all of the physical ailments I no longer suffer from such as acid reflux, back pain, and knee pain, my self love and confidence has gone through the roof. I am so proud of myself for what I have achieved. My entire outlook on life has become more positive.

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

I have the most amazing 20 year old Son in the world. If I win the $20,000 I would give him a majority of the money to help give him have a head start and make his young adult years a little easier. With the rest I'd go on a vacation someplace with a tropical beach.
