Default You vs' You

I'm Back off season is over!

I was very active on here over the summer and needed to drop the weight for my very first figure competition, and I just wanted to share my success story with everyone.

I made it.... And placed 6th. Not so great but then I placed 2nd at my 2nd show in November. Not a very long off season but Im back to keep track of my diet and will be competing again in April.

I just wanted everyone to keep plugging along and know if you want something bad enough you can do anything. - - thats me at my heaviest 180 pounds and then me at 125 pounds on competition day.

I also, wanted to thank everyone for the motivation, and can't wait to see everyone's progress. --Good luck to everyone and I hope you all achieve your goals.

My new goal --- to get my Pro Card.

good job Dianna. I remember you posting about the competition, I was wondering how it went. Placing 6th is still great, look at how far you've come!

Great work! Overall 6th at your first competition is fantastic, and after that you made 2nd at your 2nd as well. The road to pro will be challenging no doubt, but if it were easy none of us would be here on FD right?

My rules:
1) eat real food - more vegetables, moderate meat, moderate fruits, less grains, less sugar, less vegetable oils.
2) exercise - moderate intensity cardio, sprinting, heavy lifting, dedicated stretching and mobility.
3) live - relax, de-stress, meditate.
