"There is a stereotype that all athletes are built a specific way and have to look a certain way but I don't believe that is true." - Tess
"Between the ages of 14-19 I had trouble with drug abuse. One day a good friend took me to the gym because I was unhappy with my appearance (I was very skinny). I started going to the gym strictly for aesthetic purposes, I stopped doing drugs, smoking cigarettes, and drinking alcohol. I also, however, began extreme dieting which eventually grew into a fear of food. I eventually had to reverse diet to bring my metabolism and health back to normal.
I began to realize that I enjoyed the strong feats my body could accomplish. I loved the feeling. There is a stereotype that all athletes are built a specific way and have to look a certain way but I don't believe that is true. I have met some amazing athletes that come in all varieties, some are smaller and some are bigger. What they have in common is the hard work they put in towards their sports and goals. Strong is strong.
My name is Tess and my life goal is to be #udonstrong and I am Kinda Fit Kinda Fat."
