So if I’ve found the correct area of site I’ve changed the title…again!
I DEFINATELY want to complete again in the future YaY!
I have a loOong way to go but I think I can see my way to contemplating competing again, maybe in 2015!
I was a top commenter on a fellow bloggers site: http://thefitwriter.wordpress.com/2013/12/31/thefitwriter-2013-blog-review/
Nicola makes her living as a professional writer and I very much enjoy joy her, and her dogs, posts.
She pondered whether I might complete again, so I thought I’d link back here.
I met her through body building.
Mark and I were privileged enough to be invited to a friends wedding on 2nd Jan.
I/we met the lovely lady in question through body building.
Another good friend (and her husband) who were there too, I/we also met through body building.
I have REALLY struggled to accept my weight gain/rebound since I completed.
When combined with significant life stresses in 2011, I started to slip into depression a little (again). The combination even kept me from the above mentioned ‘another good friend’s wedding. I simply could not face a social gathering.
Since I started back at slimming world last year my weight loss has been spectacularly slow!
BUT, my mind set and relationship with/attitude to food is soOo much improved it’s a revelation!
I think we can all agree that with Mark & I being soOo loved up at the moment my diet is faAar from strict, as we sample the delights at the lovely restaurants we’re privileged enough to be able to dine in. But the revelation is that I’m not guilty enjoying the food, which makes for really special couple times with hubby.
I have met some AWESOME people through body building!
I have made some GREAT friendships through body building!
There’s not a day I don’t think about body building!
I learnt just how focussed I can be & how hard I can train through body building!
I have fallen from the body building path the past few years, but I have leant and grown from my experiences.
I’m in no hurry. I want to get a grip on maintaining a healthy weight before I prep for a competition again.
