Goal has been reached and I am simply touched by all the support. A huge gratitude of thanks to my 47 donors that made my dream all possible. In 24 hours from now the show begins, people ask me if I'm excited and truthfully all I can think about is the food and relaxation of when it's over, then of course it's on to the next show, lol.. Fitness and nutrition became my life and there is no better feeling of that along with success.. Take the ride with me, you'll never turn back.. :)))

I wanna thank you soooo much anonymous donor for the start but I know who you are :P
My ultimate goal is to enter and win the Las Vegas Classics Show - http://www.npclasvegasclassic.com/ - (Masters Bikini Class) here in Las Vegas on November 3, 2012, this will be my first show ever.
I need to hire Certified Trainer and IFBB Professional Bodybuilder, Jeannie Engel Paparone - www.jeanniesfit4life.com - 12 weeks before, beginning August. I am 47 now and will be 48 at time of entry, I have little confidence, guts, balls whatever you wanna call it and need the push from you to help me through this. I believe that with you guys/gals behind me I couldn't possibly let you down and would stop at nothing for my win or at least place, of course anyone wanting to attend the show is more than welcome.
The money is for 36 intense training sessions, the proper diet, the perfect custom made bikini, shoes, hair, makeup, tanning and entry fee.
I am 5' 7", 111 lbs. right now and in incredible shape to do this per my trainer. Jeannie has never trained anyone for a show in her career that hasn't won or placed, take a look at her outstanding accomplishments by clicking on the link above, then click on "Hire JP".
Please help me reach my goal and be a part of this tough fight ahead called my dream. I am single, alone, no kids so I have no help what so ever. The recent illness of my 9 year old Shih Tzu (my entire world) and to save his life has literally drained my bank account making it difficult to pursue my dream. God Bless and thank you so much for taking the time to read this :)
By all means, anyone wanting to contact me personally, please do, I need all the help and support I can get.
I will keep everyone posted with daily updates on my progress throughout my training.
