PumpUp member @mel_bourne's transformation has been two years in the making. It didn't happen overnight, and it wasn't all about the scale. "That's how I looked in a dress," she confided. "I didn't feel very confident at that time in my life, but now I'm so happy about my progress! I feel much more confident in clothes." Mel's happiness is palpable in all of the photos that she shares with the PumpUp community.
You can always count on her to have a big smile on her face after a difficult session at the gym. No matter how exhausted she feels after a weightlifting session, Mel always expresses how content she is with her strength. "I don't want another girl's body," she insisted. "I want my body: leaner, stronger, and healthier. I love the support from my PumpUp family. I'm pretty proud and I only hope to inspire more people." Through healthy eating and a consistent exercise regimen, Mel lost over 15.1 kilograms and gained a world of confidence since she began her journey. Keep her pumped!
