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

As someone who struggled with my weight all of my life, I discovered that the key to my own 130-pound weight loss was realizing that I had been treating weight loss as a diet destination instead of approaching it as a transformational journey. Mindset is everything. I discovered that believing in myself and understanding WHY I wanted to live a healthier lifestyle made a huge difference in me transforming my life. Most importantly, it doesn't matter how long it takes, just don't quit!

How does fitness positively influence your life?

Fitness opened my world in ways I would have never imagined. It has empowered me to truly love myself. By truly loving myself, it's given me the gift to impact and inspire hundreds of women to take charge of their health. It literally has helped me transform into the best version of myself. Fitness has helped me improve my career, my relationships, and my overall quality of life. It has strengthened me mentally and physically to believe that anything is possible no matter where you are in life.

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

If I were the next Ms. Health and Fitness, I would invest the $20,000 to write my book, speak and share my story so I can continue my mission of transforming lives and inspiring others to discover the best version of themselves.
