From about 1995 to 2010, I kept my weight between 123 – 128 pounds. However, in 2011, my scale reached 137 pounds again. So, I hit the book store and bought The Body Sculpting Bible for Women, by James Villepigue & Hugo Rivera. This book was exactly what I needed. It included nutritional and supplement information, illustrations of resistance exercises broken down by body part, and workouts.
I copied the workouts down on index cards and hit the grocery store for healthy foods. Then, I stepped into the free-weight area at our gym for the first time. I felt like an alien and as if everyone was staring at me (they weren’t). But, I followed my weight-training plan and stuck to my new diet plan eating 5 – 6 meals a day. Within days I FELT AMAZING! I had more energy than I’d ever had in my life! Within a month, my little muscles started to pop and I started receiving compliments about my physique from friends and neighbors.
