    I thought it a good idea to have a thread where competitors can get support, when they need it, that is specifically for their comp. prep. So, here it is....


    I'm officially freaking out. I'm 14 weeks out from my comp. and need to lose about 15-17lbs :sad: I'm so scared that I won't be ready in time. I know that many other competitors post in this forum, so I'm gonna need you guys.

    So here is how things stand at this point......
    ht 5' 8"
    wt 151lbs :(

    I'm doing this alone and that is why I am relying so heavily on he support and advice of you all that have been through this before, or are further along in your prep than I am.

    Someone tell me that this is normal, PLEASE! :(

    It's only about 1 pound/week, so you can do it. What made you decide to do it on your own?

    Sooooo....like a whine & bitch thread?

    Do I get to bitch about having to become a fatty before I can compete again? :mad:


    It's normal to freak out right up until you hit the stage ;)

    Maybe I can just pretend I'm competing and scam all the support.

    You can do it! I am freaking a little too. I wish I could share what I know but I get all my info from Erik and I do not think he would like it if I shared. But even with him I am still freaking because it is getting harder. I had a craving here and there before but this week is the first week i have gone ot bed hungry. I have been home all week and running around with my son and just on the go so not sure if that is what is making me feel so hungry or not. I hope so because maybe it will go away when I go back to work. :)

    Stone your own. They are much cheaper that way I am finding.

    Yeh I've spoken with Jodie and actually emailed her today because it's been on my mind. I think she's pretty busy with her prep and I'm sure she's got some orders to fill right now. She said a while ago that she would make the suits but I just wonder if it would be better for me to buy them undecorated and do it myself. I mean I'm not crafy but I think I can glue some stones on? I mean if it goes wrong then I'll just glue them all over right? :lol:

    Make a list of everything you have to do and plan it out timewise. You will not freak out when you realize how much time 14 weeks is. Don't get me wrong, it will fly by, but if you go over your list every day and get something done, even if it is just posing, you can easily stay on top of it all!!!
    You guys are looking at used suits too right?
