    Never thought Id say this ...

    Im actually considering wanting to compete sometime soon in the future.
    I dont even know where to begin but I know Id have to try it.
    Is this something that needs a coach?
    Ill take any advice .. harsh truths and all that Jazz.

    Im 57 and 159lbs ( I saw somewhere Id fall in the lightweight class )

    We all start somewhere! Step one imho is to start going to some local shows to see what it's all about. This will either encourage or discourage you but either way you will see what the guys and girls go through. Be sure you go to prejudging in the morning where the work is actually done.

    Also paruse the below site and check out the competitors in your class in contest around the U.S. Click on "galleries" then "recent contests" if the link doesn't take you directly to it. You'll enjoy it.

    What Kelkel said is all true and it is fun, but you need to be able to make the commitment to diet, cardio, and the gym. It really gets addicting.. if you have a girlfriend or family, you need for them to be onboard. If not, plan on arguments.
    The transformation that you can make with your body is incredible.

    Having a coach will speed things up for sure, it takes time to learn things by yourself. But if you do get a reputable one with lots of credentials/clients who have done well in competitions.

    Always good to have big goals, just take one step at a time. Good luck!

    Spending too much time on your body with a family and the strife it causes. No where near the full scope of it.

    You care about this more than me.
    You are living two lives.
    You just want to be a loner.
    You think we are just in your way.
    You only care about your body.
    You make me feel insecure looking like you do.
    You just want some fitness girl.

    Omg your at the gym?
    Omg I thought you were going to work not the gym!

    Well fuck off my dear because I am doing this and you can accept it or move on.

    Man, that's just plain sad. Guess I should feel lucky not to have that issue. My husband and I are very, very independent. We do nothing together but pay a mortgage and raise a kid. It's not a great relationship at all but at least I can go to the gym whenever I want (if I have a sitter for our boy). I often wish I had a closer relationship but this makes me appreciate the perks of my dysfunctional one!

    If she didn't make up for it by being my grandmother
    I would be single.
    She is an amazing person though and she is right in many ways. Doesn't mean I will change though.

    Mixed signals... She bought me this shirt.
    I shouldn't complain about her, she is one of a kind.

    Damm PB, your husband is missing out. By reading your messages and seeing your pictures, he is missing out in more ways than one.

    I am lucky, my wife is my best friend. We do a lot together and we also do our own thing when we want to.

    OP, good luck on your journey! It takes hard work and determination and I respect the hell out of people that can do it.

    It doesnt matter how good looking she is, some where, some one is tired of her shit.

    Light travels faster then sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

    Great place to start researching ! http://forums.steroid.com/anabolic-s...-database.html
