Jodie Marsh, former British glamour model and reality star, has totally transformed her body and profession!
Instead of showing off her body in naked photos, she's showing it off on stage in bodybuilding competitions!
Despite gracing the pages of hundreds men's magazines in the past, she says, "I feel sexier than I have for ten years!"
She admits going though a 2-year drought with men, but says that quickly ended once she shed 20 pounds of fat in just 8 weeks, explaining:
"I have never attracted so much interest from blokes in my life. It's been a real eye-opener. For the last two years I went through a complete drought of men. No one was chatting me up. I despaired of ever having a boyfriend, or even a date, again. But since I became a bodybuilder I've suddenly got about 50 guys interested in me."
For the record, we think she looked pret-ty dang good before, but it doesn't sound she was truly happy, saying:
"There were times in the past when I hated the way I looked. I once went on The Jeremy Kyle Show because I had become suicidal. I had such low self-esteem."
However, after placing 5th in her first ever body building competition, Jodie says she has a "whole new career and a new lease of life."
She isn't advocating her own extreme workouts — 8 hours in the gym a day, 7 days a week — but she does hope to inspire others battling depression and low self-esteem, saying:
"What I did for the contest was extreme and I'm not advocating that for anyone else. What I'm saying is try exercise, get yourself off the sofa. You don't know how much your life could change for the better."
We totally agree. Not all of us want to be bodybuilders, but that doesn't mean we can't have healthier bodies!
