Still Processing this Event!

Monday, September 14, 2009

Wow, I'd love to update everyone on my event, but all I can say for now is WOW! I didn't place, but I didn't expect to place with the BF% I was holding. This is not why I competed in this show. It was purely for practice for my next. ;) Ya know... the one I'll be REALLY READY for!

Anyway... thought I'd share the pics I have thus far and a video. The video is shakey, sorry for that. But, it captures the moment. It was amazing... amazing... amazing!


This is from the prejudge. They moved me to the end of the line. At that moment I quit looking at the judges and started focusing on why I was there.



These are the tall girls. The girl next to me (#10), in the yellow recieved 1st place. Girl in the black (#6) recieved 2nd and the girl in the blue next to her (#4) got 3rd. The girl in the yellow also took overall.

Okay, so the eveing show... I'll post the video in the video blogs, if it will work. But here are the pics I have. It was an amazing feeling. And although I was still quite nervous I really let go and had fun. I was just absorbing the monsterous roar of the crowd as if I were a giant sponge! It was an unbelievable feeling!!!


My game plan fo' sho' is to work on my glutes (BIG TIME) and leaning out. I am also going to rehab my shoulder. I'm staying off the scale until Saturday the 26th, when I will also begin officially preppeing for my May 8th show. Remember, this was just practice!

I'm still writing and crying... will post sometime this week though.

Thanks for all the wonderful support and to all you lurkers (and non lurkers)... NEVER EVER tell yourself you can't do something. Weight loss is about strengthening our minds and pushing through our fears. YOU CAN!!

    Congrats on your first show and the positive attitude you took from it. Just like you, I evaluated what I needed to do for the next show and I am in the process of putting my plan together.

    Just like you, I really need to work on my butt area. I am 55 years old and have done a lot of damage in that area. I also hired a posing coach because you do get judged in that area.

    I am going to compete again in December and if I do not place then, I will learn from that experience and move on to the next one.

    Congratulations again because it takes a lot of heart to get up on that stage, especially for the first time and after doing such a wonderful transformation.

    You look amazing! WOW! I didn't even know which one was you, at first! (I actually thought you were the gal in the teal bikini!)

    Way to go, Hun! You are true inspiration! I'm so glad that your first competition has left you with such an amazing feeling of pride! You deserve to feel that way! You rocked up there on stage! (eventhough I can only see one of the pics you posted! :(

    May 8th will be your next show? SWEET... that gives you many months of bulking (almost 6!) to hit BEFORE you have to consider depleting again! Lots of time to make even more BIG changes to your physique, Girl!

    It will be a pleasure to watch you transform even more on your way to the next stage performance! You are amazing! Keep up the awesome energy!!!

    CONGRATS on the first show! Despite all the other ladies being so lean, I think you fit right in! You have a very confident stage presence!!!
