Happy 40th Birthday Margie
On October 31st, 1977, "I just wanna be your everything" by Andy Gibb was at number 1 on the Australian charts, a size 14 chicken cost $1.79 and the average take home income was a massive $149.93 for men and $138.71 for women.
Meanwhile, in the Lismore Base Hospital, the Cummins family welcomed child number 8.
Margie loved being outside and active, playing sports and being with her friends. She loved school and had a great circle of friends.
Fast forward to 2005 - at the age of 28, Margie opened her first business, a very popular Pizza restaurant. She then opened 3 more. Soon though, her life would take a different path, due to the stress of her businesses impacting her health.
Always one for a challenge, Margie then entered the homes and hearts of thousands of people, via a little show called The Biggest Loser....which as we all know, she won through grit, hard work and determination (even though there were a few cheese sandwiches along the way!)
She continued on her new path, getting out and meeting people and helping to change their lives. A new business opportunity was now in front of her, and she knew she had found her calling.
Along the way, she discovered a love and ability for power lifting, which saw her win event after event, including becoming the strongest female power lifter in her class, in Australia and the 11th strongest in the world.
Her love for animals has never changed, making sure she always had a
furkid tribe in her life.
Luckily for her, in 2012, she also found the love of her life.
Her soul mate, best friend, and rock - Kat. The impact Kat has had on Margie's life,
is bigger and stronger and better, than anything else, in the last 40 years.
Margie - you are kind, genuine, honest, giving and a true and honest friend to all who are luckily to have your friendship. You inspire and encourage people on a daily basis. You work hard, play hard, and you make people laugh.
In your 40 years on earth, you have had incredible highs and shocking lows. However each of those, have made you the person you are today. You have achieved so much and we can't wait to see what you do with the next 40 years!
