It is somewhat nerve-wracking and very exciting. It's also very interesting to watch my body go through these changes; other than when I was anorexic, this is the leanest I have been. When I was anorexic, I could not really see my body - I saw an illusion, a mirage, in its place. It's very interesting to watch my body lose fat from places I'd never even think about in terms of having fat - my hands, for example.
As I have gotten progressively leaner, I have also realized that one side of my body (the right side) actually carries more fat than the other. I still have a banana roll on my left leg, but my right leg is totally smooth & looks very lean.
I'm continuing to see slow, steady progress - I just can't believe that I am going to get on a stage half-naked in front of several hundred people in two months. When I consider how quickly the past 8 weeks have gone, it feels like I'm running out of time!
In the past, I never fully believed figure/bikini/BB competitors who said that time flies. But it really does!
There is actually a lot left to do. I haven't picked a suit yet (... I know!) and still really need to improve my posing.
As far as suits go, I've narrowed my choices down to these four options:
I will definitely pick one by this weekend, though. (Anyone have any input??? I'm torn!)
and buckle down on his diet and start prepping!! I'm excited to support him through this process as much as he has supported me.
PS! I made a Group Facebook page for us. I chose a group because I want it to be a dialogue - I want everyone to be able to share motivation & tips & ask questions. For some reason I have to approve everyone who requests to join, and I'm not always at my computer, so if you request to join and it takes a few hours, don't take it personally! =) The group page is here & I'd love it if you would all join us <3
