So, it’s a good thing my confidence is strong…

Jamie
Why?

Michelle
Because my coach asked me to take pics IN my competition suit…

Jamie
Those tan lines.
😂 😂 😂

Michelle
Lolol!

Jamie
Yay for finding a coach!!!

Michelle
Hahahahaha!
Yes indeed.

Jamie
Was it through the references?

Michelle
I’m gonna post this on social media I think.
Others need this message.

Yep – through Janell.

Jamie
Awesome! Glad you found someone.

Michelle
Me too!!

Jamie
I honestly don’t think it would be so bad if it weren’t for those tan lines.
😂 😂

Michelle
Omg bahahahaha!!!

Jamie
That’s all I can see. Lol!
I am proud of you for doing this!
I think it will be good for you.

Michelle
It will be good.

Jamie
Did you just start with the coach this week?

Michelle
I sent her the pics tonight.
PAINFUL.

Jamie
I’m sure it wasn’t pleasant. But that is what she is there for. To give guidance and offer accountability.
I am glad I’m not accountable to anyone right now because I can’t imagine what they would say!

Michelle
Dude. The rolls digging into the bottom was certainly unpleasant. Lol!

Jamie
Lmao! I don’t even want to think about what I would look like in that thing. Lmao! No thank you!
I would have a full on loaf on each side!

Michelle
Lolol!
Well, I’m having a tough time. My hands are swollen again and I’m up in weight. I feel like the only way to manage this right now is fasting.
Plus, I have a headache. That’s been off and on for the last few days.
I feel great when I’m not eating.

Jamie
Ugh, I’m sorry. None of that is easy to deal with. Did you ever get results from the tests you had done?

Michelle
The results are all good except for the estrogen and progesterone.

Jamie
So, is that what is causing the swelling? Or do they not know?

Mona
Man, I didn’t realize you just feel great when you’re not eating. Have you considered revising your diet and researching foods that potentially work well with frequent fasting?
I don’t know if there will be any results, but it seems worth a try.

Mona
I know you’re not comp ready, but you still look good…even with those tan lines! I know you are not where you want to be, but throughout this journey, I have needed to keep reminding myself of how far I have come! Also, the comps are very strict, so of course you’re not going to be super close to comp shape. You know you’re gonna get your money’s worth for your coach!

Michelle
Janell thinks it’s that my hormones are fucked up.

Mona
How do you unfuck them?

Michelle
My coach doesn’t want me fasting so that will stop as soon as she gives me my plans.
I think it’s going to be some sort of estrogen and progesterone replacement.

Mona
Ah, okay.

Michelle
But I will have to do trial and error until my appointment with the naturopath since that isn’t until 11/30.
You’re right of course. I’m healthy and strong. That’s important. The extra layers of fat will drop as I focus on diet and exercise. With the lifting, it is possible that my testosterone could increase, which could help as well.

Mona
Hopefully your trial and error gives you some good results!
What was that quote from Maggie or Caile? “Fuck you and your fucking pound!” or was it something similar?

Michelle
I’m trying to decide if I should try the vag cream on my skin. Lol!

Mona
Lololol!

Michelle
Yep! That was it.
Fuck you and your fucking pound!!

Mona
Still cracks me up.
😂
