Hi Everyone!
I recently committed to signing up to do my first ever (AHHHH!) body building competition coming up 8/8/09. All the luck and advice anyone has to share I welcome! I've also tried cooking with protein power, thanks to Amy! And think it's really fun!
So "hello!"

Hi Ileen and Everyone! Thanks for the warm welcomes!!
I've actually been trying to get really lean on my own for about a year. Was not really being able to cut to where I needed to be. I finally emailed some local promoters asking about later shows, 'cause there was no way w/11weeks out that I'd be ready. Well, they convinced me otherwise! LOL! And gave me a nutrition structure, macro #'s and have helped with work outs. I signed up for a posing class and I'm gonna do it!
So many good things have happened since I put my feet on the path and this site is one of them!
I really just want to get my feet wet, do my best and then see where I can take my body!
I've got 6.5 weeks to go now and probably 6 more lbs/ %BF to go.
My initial momentum was great. Dieting has been hard lately. I made a compliance chart again to help me see where I'm altering or adding and just stay true to the plan!
Any help with motivation? I've never gotten this far before, but I still have a way to go!
