Mrs. Wisconsin Pageant
Tuesday, March 03, 2009
Well some people say...how on earth can you get up there and do that in front of people...
My total motivation to lose the baby weight after my second child was this pageant. Even though I am trying really hard to train for another half marathon, I knew I needed more. With much dedication to looking "good" on stage, I was able to lose all 49 lbs plus another 1 lb. So many people that day said to me "wow, after only having a baby 8 months ago, you look amazing." Young and old said that to me. That made me feel so good inside and all my hard work paid off.
No I didn't win, but I didn't expect to either. I wanted to walk away with something. I did walk away with the Online Photogenic Award Trophy but I did walk away with more. Many new friends, new experiences and my body again.
Will I do this again, yes. I will enter next year. I plan to have a better body by then. So new goals are going to be set and concurred.
So I have a year of being Mrs. Washington County...maybe those around will see me in a parade or two:)
