56-Year-Old Woman Turns Bodybuilder After Messy Divorce (Photos)
A 56-year-old Danish woman who turned to power-lifting after she endured a messy divorce, has revealed how weights has transformed her love life and her body.
According to DailyMail, Bibi Britt Johannesen first started weight-lifting in her twenties after she was unhappy with her physique.
However, as the decades passed, she piled the weight back on, reaching 18 stone 2lbs eight years ago – when she was consuming around 4,000 to 5,000 calories a day.
When her marriage faltered in 2011, Bibi, a day care manager, decided to hit the gym once more and has seen her physique transformed into a muscular body which she describes as ‘the best medicine’ for overcoming her painful divorce.
Last year, her confidence was boosted so much, she decided to enter a national competition, coming third – and now weighs just 11st 5Ibs.
She also revealed that the work-outs have also boosted her libido after decades of feeling uncomfortable in her body.
