“One of the reasons why I decided to stop competing is due to the federation changing the judging criteria and are now looking for female body builders to look some what like the ones back in the past and I will be damn if I allow any human being to play with my mind. Its bodybuilding….not fitness or figure or swim suit (whatever that is).”
Rosemary, who often went by Rose, is a dedicated bodybuilder. She has been dedicated to the sport and not the IFBB and has said, “you will still see me around with my big dense muscle.” We will miss Rose on stage but respect her honesty and loyalty to her heart and what she loves. Some love to compete and some love to body build to the height of the definition. Right now the IFBB doesn’t cater to the later and the later is what she loves. This is evident on her website where she shares a quote from her mentor in bodybuilding, Dr. Alfred K. Thomas and The Easton Notion:
“One should not be attached to outcomes , to results but should practice “detachment” in this case with winning, taking pleasure in that which, ultimately, brings one more pleasure”.
