Unbelievable Women Transformations – Before and After Steroids

6. The former bodybuilder who compares bodybuilding to alcoholism

Mimi D’Attomo – who started bodybuilding when she was in her late 20s – became fanatical in her desire to win and turned to drugs. She started mixing chemical cocktails of steroids and diuretics after competing for three years.

Many women, she says, mix potentially harmful combinations of insulin, diuretics, human growth hormone, beta blockers, and anti-wasting HIV drugs.

Fortunately for D’Attomo, she stopped using drugs before the side effects became irreversible, but it took her three years to recover. The hormonal withdrawal caused her to gain 40 pounds, made her joints ache and she suffered from depression.
