LOL! Oh my goodness!! The fatty patty pics were January 2006!! I always lifted weights, but as you can see I loved to eat and hated cardio!! By August 2007 I had managed to get down to 150. I started My diet Aug. 3, 2007 and on competition day Nov. 3, 2007, I was 115. So, I lost 38 pounds in 13 weeks!

LOL! B/C I competed back in 99-2000 in bb, did 3 shows and did well. My issue was coming off the diet. So long story short, I stopped competing b/c my habits start looking similar to an eating disorder....binging, w/o the purging. Anywho, I was holding at about 145 for several years then I started work as a therapist on an inpatient pyschiatric unit...and drug reps luv to feed you when trying to sell their drugs. Sorry, getting long winded. Long story short...I knew I was capable of get'n back to stage shape b/c I had competed b4, I never stopped lifting weights...just stopped cardio and ate everything in sight...it was just matter of getting my mental status in order to stay on the diet.

Thanks to every1 for all the compliments!!


GREAT transformation, Kenyatta!!! Very inspirational! :respect:

I'm curious as to what folks around you (family, co-workers, etc.) had to say about it? Well, my parents are very supportive and my brother is great too. He says he's living some of his dreams through me, lol! When I first competed back in 1999 they were very concerned..I looked very ill in street clothes to them....but once I got on stage, they were right there cheering me on. As for go-workers, amazingly some like me w/ the weight on others dont. From January 2006 to now I've slowly decreased my weight up until I got ready for my last show. Alot of ppl say they like me best at 145-140. Off season, I like my weight where it is now which is about 130 and this is a very healthy weight for my frame.

Amazing transformation Kenyatta, Congratulations!

Hey Bree, actually the suit I have has the same stone pattern as my last suit it's just cut differently and the color is a different shade of blue. I decided to go w/ the same color 2 pc b/c it was a headache trying to get my make up to patch a blue and red suit.

Kenyatta posted this in Andrea's training journal:

Yes...I'm actually happy with where I am now....At 9 weeks out I was 10 pounds lighter than what I was 7 weeks out from my last show..so that was very motivating....I was really nervous about this off season, but I managed not to go to far above my comp. weight. I feel that I can definitely drop 15-20 pounds in 8 weeks, especially since I dropped 38 in 13 weeks last prep.

What was your training and diet?

Towards the beginning of the thread I noticed I said my start weight was 150...it was actually 153. As far as what I did to drop the BF fat.....Whew, extensive cardio and a very strict diet. For maybe the last 9 weeks I did cardio 3x a day..I usually did this for maybe 5-6 days in a row and on the 7th day, I'd do 2 sessions and consider that as a rest day.

I always trained very heavy, so my trainer felt like I had plenty of muscle under the layers of fat. I actually surprised myself that I dieted and did so much cardio and still had some muscle under the fat!

:respect::respect:Way to go girl, what an inspiration
Thanks!! I just want to keep it going!!

Hopefully you can be a true inspiration to some of the girls who have contemplated getting on stage but just think that 'they can't do it.' Obviously, it CAN be done.
