Being in the Spotlight! (With Bodybuilding.com)

Just recently I had someone contact me from Body Building.com. We spent some time exchanging conversations, and I was then asked if they could share my weight loss story with other Body Building.com employees. I was totally surprised by this invite, not to mention slightly nervous. Other than just the people in my life who know me and what I've embarked on, this was the first time I was invited to share my story and success on a more public level. Like be in the spot light in regards to me and body no less. It wasn't long before I had emailed off my story and things went from there. They've since contacted me a few times, and then one day I came home to this! 



A big box of goodies and treats! The best part was, I was clueless as to what each one of them was and what it was used for. I quickly contacted my new friends at Bodybuilding.com and they were able to guide me in the right direction of which supplement to use when and how they would benefit me in their own way. 

Maybe an experience like this really wouldn't mean much to someone else, but to me it was sure huge. It felt good. I was excited to see so many acknowledge and share the excitement with me and what I'd accomplished, and I loved  how they encouraged me to get out there and share my story. To not hide anymore. To be proud of what I've accomplished and to pay it forward to someone that may be struggling themselves. After all, that is what I want to do. Thank you Bodybuilding.com for being a bright spot on this journey and possibly birthing the idea of getting out there more and sharing what I've become!
