Andrea Clay's Submission:

As a child in grade 4, I will never forget how it made me feel to be chased around the school playground hearing the words, "put some pork on your fork". I am now 39 years old, but I can still remember that day as if it happened just last week. I remained chubby most of my life, and when I graduated from high school I weighed in at 180lbs. I was not comforatable in my own skin. I look back at pictures even now, and although I knew I was "big", I did not realize I was "that BIG". Fast forward 20 years, and my path in life led me to a woman named Kelly Tufford. She was a personal trainer in town, and her business card just happened to be at my work. I met with her, and I signed up to do a few sessions. Kelly saw something in me, that I had not yet seen in myself. I told her to "push me" in the workouts, which she did. In June I watched her compete at Provincials, and I said to myself..............."if she can do that, then why can't I?" I was then put in touch with Darren Mehling from Freak Fitness in July of 2010. I jumped in with both feet, and here I am @115lbs and entering my 1st Figure competiton. I am a wife and a mother of two beautiful daughters, and I own the Fabutan in Steinbach. My alarm goes off each and every morning @ 3:15am, so that I can train while my husband and daughters are still asleep. If I can do this, anyone can. I set out 1 year ago in March to change my life, and in 10 Days I will walk across that stage alrready a winner!!!! Thanks for taking the time to read my story!
