Default New girl..question

Hello! I stumbled across here a few nights ago and did some browsing, signed up tonight. Now I did some more browsing and realized it seems everyone is competing, or getting ready to compete..and I'm not. I'm just a chunky/squishy girl needing to find my muscles again..I know they're there, I used to be able to see them.

So, my question is, did I blunder into a competition forum? I don't want to step on toes and be the 5th wheel, you know?

There are quite a few non-competitors here and have been since the beginning. Just think of it as a place for free advice and support from the experts!

WELCOME!!!! You don't have to compete to join us! This is a great forum full of intelligent, kind women. You're NOT a 5th wheel. You'll learn a lot from the women here. There are others here who don't compete either. Make yourself at home

Whew! Thanks everyone!

My name is Missi. Part of what drew me here is the name, Siouxcountry..I live in Iowa, and the area I live in is referred to as Siouxland, so it really made me do a double take and I had to check things out!

Back in the day, I used to look pretty good..and then got married, had a couple kids and just..let everything go b/c it never used to be hard to look the way I did..and now I find I'm sooo not 25 anymore and it's harder. I just need to get my butt in gear and get back into it.

Funny thing is, my brother is a bodybuilder and done some shows (tho it's been several years), and I've always gone and longed to look like the fitness women and never pursued it for one reason or t'other. Need to knock it off and put my mind to it this time.

If I do a post in the training/nutrition part, can you guys help me w/some things I've been thinking of trying?

Hey grlfran, glad to see your post. There are are types of people who post here, from pros like Kayde who posted above, to people like me, who have done 1 or 2 local shows, to people who have never competed and never will!!!

I'm sure any ?'s you have, someone on here could answer. Welcome!

Totally agree. I'm not a competitor either, but I'm still striving to get the physique I want, and try competing at least once. This is a great board and community!
At first, I was a bit conscious that there are many competitors here, but I just dove right in. You can too.
