Believe it or not, Emery was once obese, and suffered from bulimia.

From her site:

LINK (http://www.emerymiller.com/bio.html)


Growing up I was the last person who would ever have been accused of being athletic. I was teeny, scrawny, had a Heart Murmur and was “allergic” to anything that involved sweating. I was also a compulsive over-eater which was compounded by Bulimia. After 15 years of suffering through my self-destruction I was able to overcome the disease although I struggle with it everyday. When I feel like I may falter, I just look myself in the eye & yell, “Stop it!.”

After I married, my husband, Patrick, and I became downright fat. Patrick was eventually diagnosed with morbid obesity at 5’10”; 302 lbs; 43% bodyfat and at 5’3“; 188lbs. and 38% bodyfat, I learned that I was "significantly obese." I hadn't realized that so much weight had crept on. There was no more time to waste. I knew that if we didn’t do something together that neither one of us would make it. That something turned out to be Bodybuilding.

Since then I am proud to say that between the two of us we have lost about 250 lbs. My weight is now increasing once again, but it’s all lean mass. Bodybuilding has done so much for my self-esteem.

We have been able to do so much because we changed our lives. We are now both Paid Call Firefighters; Emergency Medical Technicians; Apprentice Stunt Persons & Certified Personal Trainers. Not too bad for folks who once became winded due to the exertion of feeding themselves & broke their mattress because they were so fat. I’ve even done 3 Full-Body Burns so far. If we can do it…anyone can.
Obese to pro bodybuilder, quite incredible! :respect:

Her own words:


Souixcountry asked for before pictures...well, you asked for it! Here is what started it all for us. My apologies for the graininess of the picture but we had thought that all of our horrible before pictures were lost when my purse was stolen from my gym locker with them in it. Almost 5 years after we started, we developed an old roll of film and discovered these.

This was me at 33. I think I prefer the me that is approaching 43!

Emery,

Your skin is very tight for someone who was once obese. Were you just blessed with good genetics, or did it take a great deal of time for your skin to shrink? Or surgery?

I know many women and men have a problem with loose skin, and advice?

First off I want to thank Sioux for highlighting me here. I really appreciate the attention and all the lovely compliments you all have been generous enough to afford me.

As for the question: I did have quite a bit of loose skin with the weight loss. I have not had any surgeries for it or any laser skin tightening procedures. I do still have some laxity to my skin but I am very good about the positioning of my body. It’s mostly not a problem, but as you can see in the attached photo that Gene Hwang took, when I am really lean & I am bent over or sit in certain positions there is still extra skin.

There are a few things one can do to help this. First, if one smokes they are less likely to recover from stretched out skin. The elasticity is damaged by smoking because smoking ruins the circulation to the extremities. This is why smokers tend to have more facial wrinkles. Skin with reduced elasticity will not recover its original shape as well. I have never smoked so I did not have this problem especially on my behind, tummy & face. My behind & tummy recovered better than my face….of course! :.P

Also I was fortunate enough to discover a lotion by Reviva Labs called Elastin Collagen Lotion. It is very inexpensive and although I was cynical about the validity of its claims I was extremely please with the results. I use it each time I shred down to help tighten my skin.

I hope this info was helpful. If there are any other questions please feel free to ask anytime and THANK YOU all again for the friendship.

Emery

SC, Emery will have an update for you tomorrow. In my opinion, she is doing and looking amazing. We both are thinking that she will be presenting her tightest physique since becoming pro. Everything is fallinf in place at the right time and her body is responding to new diet changes like clockwork. I will get some up date pictures this weekend.

Thank you for your support! Siouxcountry is the new Andy! You ROCK!

Also, for those interested in contributing online, I have created a paypal link. Please send a coresponding email so we know where to send the prize if you win! Thx!

Sioux I must apologize for not having updated you sooner, but I have been incredibly inundated with work as of late and have not been able to do much more than browse the forums lately. I noticed that you have Emery listed in the Europa thread as well...she will not be doing that show this year. It looks like it will only be Atlantic City, but having said that I will not paste my info from the other threads!

Hello Everyone!
Here is an update for you regarding the Raffle for Emery.
Regretfully, Emery will not be able to make the Tampa show, but she will absolutely be in Atlantic City! As it stands she will be in best condition yet as a Pro! Very exciting! If you are interested, there is still time to participate in the raffle and possibly win an 80GB IPod! The drawing is to be held this coming Saturday at a carwash being held for her by a number of her clients who are trying to make she sure she can compete. All help is greatly appreciated.

So gorgeous. A physique to create a Female mold by. And she will then break that mold, and return sharper (which does not SEEM possible. How much better can one do!? Perhaps no better at all. The name EMERY fits the aura, the colors, the face of pure loveliness. Authentic athletic prowess goes into this kind of accomplishment, as her piers and the photogs who document this phenomenon know all too well...MOD~
