INBA athlete Julie Romero shares her 61 pounds weight loss transformation and inspires others to naturally live a healthy and fit lifestyle.
This past weekend (April 16, 2022), the INBA Capital City Championships had inspiring women competitors representing the natural bodybuilding community who have taken their health and fitness into their own hands. One of these standout athletes was Julie Romero. Julie Romero has lost a total of 61 pounds. Romero’s health and fitness journey began in October of 2020. Romero merely wanted to lose 20 lbs. However, her trainer encouraged her that more was possible. In just four weeks, she was down 17 pounds, and down 55 pounds in three months. Today, she’s lost a total of 61 pounds.
Julie Romero Lost 61 Pounds Naturally
At the INBA Capital City Championships, Romero gave a speech about her story.
“GOING INTO THIS, I ONLY WANTED TO LOSE 20 POUNDS. I WAS THINKING I WOULD BE COMFORTABLE WITH JUST 20 POUNDS, AND WHEN I STARTED, MY TRAINER BELIEVED IN ME AND SAID THAT I COULD HONESTLY DO 30-40 POUNDS.
I LAUGHED AND SAID LET’S TRY JUST DO 20 LBS AND THOUGHT THAT’S ALL I COULD DO. AND IN 4 WEEKS, I LOST 17 POUNDS. TODAY I’VE DONE A TOTAL OF 61 POUNDS NOW.
MY NEW GOAL IS TO COME UP HERE AND TO INSPIRE OTHER PEOPLE TO WANT TO DO IT. AND YOU CAN DO IT. AND YOU CAN DO IT NATURAL.”
The INBA PNBA uploaded a clip of Romero speaking on social media below.
Julie Romero competed in the Body Quest category at INBA Capital City Championships. Body Quest is a weight loss transformation category. And it gives people on a health and fitness journey a platform to share their journey and inspire others. Athletes in the Body Quest class get to show off their transformation with an outfit of their choice and disclose what inspired them to seek a healthy lifestyle.

The INBA welcomes all levels of fitness and bodybuilding and has a multitude of categories to choose from. These include Body Quest, Bikini Diva Mama (women who have had children 1-3 years ago from the competition date), and Beach Body (entry-level category to Men’s Physique).
