"...I think the ANB comp is achievable for you - we just need to nudge that weight off gently rather than beat you over the head."But after I filled in the forms, took my measurements and took the 'before" photos I got very anxious and disheartened.
My photos made me look soft, round and plump. After looking at figure competitors photos it seems like it is such a huge transformation in such a short time. I am actually feeling physically sick about it all.
I happened upon this today from Bodybuilding.com which helped
"Any time you take the plunge into the unknown and step out of your comfort zone, you will feel a certain amount of anxiety. If you didn't, you wouldn't really be challenging yourself now would you? When you are at the end of your journey you will be able to look back and be proud of all that you have accomplished ... regardless of the outcome of your particular placing.
You will have stepped up to the plate and tested yourself. Not only will you have accomplished something that a relative few accomplish, but you will have proved that you are true to yourself and your dreams and you go after what you really want in life. So let's get going!"
It's going to be fine I am sure, but I am still a little frightened.
