WMBD/WYZZ-TV - WASHINGTON, Ill. - Not happy with the way she felt or looked, Bloomington's Sara Milliken decided in late 2012 she wanted to change her life.
So she did. She lost over 100 pounds.
Saturday she takes another step on her journey when she competes in the Heart of Illinois Natural Classic, a body building show at Five Points. It'll be her first formal bikini competition.
"No matter if I pull first place ort last, this journey for me has been rewarding enough," said Milliken, who lost 102 pounds in getting ready for her first show. "I think no matter how I do tomorrow, the weight loss and feeling good and all those elements, I feel like a winner with that alone."
Milliken, 29, is a mother of four and a cancer survivor. Pre-judging for the show is Saturday at 9 a.m. with the main event beginning at 6 p.m.
