Hi! Thanks! Competing can get pretty lonely so it's nice to see such support. :gh2: The show that the avatar is from was the Arnold Classic Amateur last year. I've been competing on and off for about 7/8 years - started with natural bodybulding (anyone remember the ANBC???? :)), and then switched to figure a few years ago. I'm starting to get the itch to compete as I watch Lori (ripitupbaby) with her contest prep - what an inspiration!

Hi! I am looking forward to new friends and of course learning new things as well. The more I watch other people get ready, I remember the excitement of it all and it makes me want to do it again. I haven't picked a show yet...it's still "just an itch" right now...

Yes, as of yesterday, I am officially a lightweight. :eek:

Now it's a struggle to maintain this conditioning without losing any more size or muscle... hence the struggle to stay sane!!! :nuts:

Hi Michele. :waving: Welcome! What are your plans for the rest of the season?

Hi Melody! Thanks for the welcome! I plan to get back into "serious" training for the rest of the year and see how my body changes before I think about which show to do. Watching Lori's progress has really motivated me to do this and I have started to get that itch to compete (thanks girl!!). My nutrition has been balanced so I don't have any real weight to lose, but at this point I need to tone up if I plan on hitting the stage next year. My hamstrings/butt need the most work. Even on stage at my last show they weren't as tight as they need to be. So my official goal would be to tighten this area up :)

That's great that you have the itch to compete again and it's awesome getting that motivation from Lori :awesome: You'll get it to dial in. Best wishes and keep posting away. Maybe start a training journal!! are you coming out to watch Team U competition? A bunch of us will be there.

Awww thanks Michele! :kiss:

It's been really motivating for me to have you in my cheering section! ;)

I have to dig up some old pics of us from the show we did together in 2005 when I get home and have a few mins. I know I have a couple cute ones from the after party! :D

Thanks! I'll think about doing a journal...maybe when I pick a show! Unfortunately, I can't get the time off to go to Team U because I'm taking time off with my husband to go on vacation in the beginning of September. I hope there will be tons of pictures from the show though!

I'm so happy that I'm a motivator for you - it's soooooo hard to get ready for a show! :bowdown:

I have a really cute picture of you, me, and Maggie from the afterparty from the show, but I'm not sure if Maggie B. would mind me posting her picture so I won't post... It's a great photo though!

Keep me posted, girl! :cheerleader:
