    Hello!

    I found lbc through siouxcountry last year and have been lurking on fb and the board for some time.

    I'm a bb, in prep for my second competition. I'm 40 yo, 5'9, 10 weeks out, 169lbs. I've adopted some lcb diet advice into my prep this year, and I gotta tell you: I am not miserable on this prep!!! How fun is it to be able to eat a skinny cow ice cream sandwich pwo??? Eek!!!! That's just the tip of the iceberg. I've learned so much here!

    Another bb at my gym is about 7 weeks out from his show. He looks miserable. His coach is only allowing him to eat fish and chicken from now until his show. No sauces, no spices. Nothing. His life must suck!!!

    Honestly, the skinny cow thing was the most enlightening part!!! Lol. And the recipes that are on this board are so helpful too. I now know that I'm not limited to bland crap.

    Perhaps the biggest change wasn't as much diet as it was cardio. Last year I think I did too much and ended up losing too much muscle. I'm still learning how to control calories so I don't have to do as much cardio, but I'm not quite there just yet! This will all come with trial and error. I hope. Haha!! :)

    I live in Pgh! Did that show the last 3 years. Not doing it this year because they took away fitness which is what I do. I'll probably still go to watch because it's a good show. Enjoy prepping and good luck!

    My husband is from Pittsburgh!!! I did the Pitts last year too; placed horribly, but it was my first show, so I wasn't that upset. Well, initially, I was pissed off. Lol. But I was done being pissed by the end of the night.
