Rosie Lippmann was an ordinary American woman with excess weight but one day she woke up and decided to change something. She was tired of her weight, her appearance and her reflection in the mirror. She wanted to try to lose her excess pounds.

Her story began like any other usual story of a weight-losing woman but the end of this story is great, even unbelievable. Rosie managed not only to lose excess pounds but to participate in bikini competitions. Can you imagine that?

Firstly, she wanted to get slimmer and to get a beautiful and healthy body. When she saw that she had easily lost 40 pounds, her goal changed - she wanted to compete with other women. Now she says that the most important thing to achieve any goal is motivation. If you are motivated, you can make your dreams come true.
