A) Because she's someone other than Jennifer Aniston and—
B) She isn't even a celebrity (yet).
Faith is a mother of three in British Columbia, Canada, who wears bikinis and is in the best shape of her life at 41. She's a bit like Sia Cooper, the type of incredibly strong woman who gives birth and shows off a six pack six days later.
There was a period in her life, though, in which she now recognizes she was suffering from a food addiction: “I was such a food addict and I didn’t want people to know whenever I wanted a fast food meal. Wendy’s was my favorite. I would go to three different Wendy’s because I didn’t want the cashier to know.”
She’d then Febreeze her car, “so there was no sign.”
It was her divorce that motivated Faith to start exercising and eating healthily, but in her desire to change her life she "went too far," according to People, developing anorexia and bulimia. “I didn’t find a healthy balance until about four years ago," she says, when she stumbled upon a strong man competition after finishing one of her runs.
“I saw men pushing fire trucks and flipping tires and I said, ‘I want to do that.'” Faith entered her first fitness competition in May 2013, eventually being able to push cars and run obstacle courses with kettle bells, but when it got too easy, she decided to take on the ultimate challenge: bodybuilding.
Faith's family friends encouraged her to go for it “I realized my issue was fear-based," she told People. "In strength sports, I was in a big tee shirt, big shorts, a baseball cap. I didn’t have to be whittled down with my skin showing. Where was my loose skin going to go? I’d have to bare my cellulite to the world. I was terrified."
“Bodybuilding became an outlet for me to conquer my fears,” she says.
Bravo to Faith, for taking some attention away from Jennifer Anniston, and for transforming herself into Superwoman.
