Hey Friends! Yesterday I posted that the voting was open for the Promax 2013 DOer Contest is open. I entered this contest on a whim, and found out I was chosen as one of the 10 finalests!! This is HUGE for me.
While I never really struggled with with horrible self-esteem, I had some serious body image issues. I lacked the confidence to believe that I could ever be considered “fit” or “strong”. I saw so many amazing before and after transformations. Biggest Loser, Blogs, Advertisements… all sharing someone’s before and after. 2 years after starting my journey to Health, I still struggle with seeing myself as one of those people with a “transformation” story. I know I am not where I need to be, but I have fought HARD every step of the way. Being acknowledged, even as a finalest in this contest has given me a sense of validation. It is one thing to notice the changes in my mind and body towards my health and fitness. It is a whole different level of validation to be recognized for it in a contest like this. I would be humbled and excited to have the opportunity to represent the “everyday” person alongside other Promax DOers that are elite athletes and fitness professionals. (Of course, the year supply of Promax Bars and Adventure Trip would be nice too!)
