AR: My parents have been amazingly supportive. I’m sure it wasn’t easy to watch their daughter go through so much to get on a stage in a bikini, but they knew my heart and my reasoning so they supported me fully, and they did everything they could to help me along the way. They have even been inspired to eat healthier and focus on fitness. I helped my mom with her diet, and at her last visit to the doctor she was asked what she’s doing because her numbers changed so drastically. She went from pre-diabetic to perfectly healthy in only a few months!
