    Hi Malika, I adore your physique btw.

    For anyone who doesn't follow the international scene, Malika is one of the top figure competitors in NABBA.

    I've been a pretty studious lurker for sometime on the other sites but am really excited about what Dave and John have done here and plan to really take part.

    I thought so My OH thought he recognised you! We seen you at one of the shows in Ballymena last year held at Seven Towers leisure centre, you weren't competing that night though. I can't remember the name of the show now but it was the first time it was held.

    Unfortunately there weren't that many competitors that night but we did arrive a tad late for it.

    I look forward to seeing you at more shows, hopefully I will get a chance to see you compete.

    Hi Malika

    I am planning on competing for the next two years, and if I don't manage to get my nattie pro card, I am retiring my bikinis.

    While I love to compete, I find it has thrown off my previous balance I had with my weight/body fat, how I ate and trained.

    I was just diagnosed being hypothyroid, which means I haven't been producing enough thyroxine, making my metabolism quite slow, I lost some of my eyebrows, hearing, some of my hair, and get fat quite easily and have had a hard time (almost impossible), dropping below 16% bodyfat.

    I think I have had this condition for close to four years, it was really a bit of luck with lab tests and how I was dieting that had me be diagnosed.

    Oh yah, I am a biomedical scientist in clinical biochemistry.

    I check my bloods every now and then when I am dieting/changing my diet, dehydrating, etc.

    I am now going to be monitoring my hormone/thyroxine replacement therapy.

    Ill go first...though im sure many of you are familiar with me...

    Andrea...from Illinois...why i still live here...who knows...i hate snow and cold. 26 years old. not married...have a boyfriend, but shit, lately...i dont know man...maybe i should start looking again! no kids...and honestly...not a fan of them...maybe one day...who knows. going back to school...sociology. though id rather just start fresh with nutrition. been into fitness my whole life...i say fitness not athletics...never got into organized team sports lol. didnt get serious into weight lifting until i was 19...started competed in figure at 22. crossed over to bb this fall. loved it...not looking back. wont compete again until spring 2010. have some lats to grow and some mass to add to my back this year! ive met many great e-friends over the last year and a half since ive been active on the boards and i look forward to making new ones from this board. currently...im a little too heavy for my offseason...i got about 7-10 pounds to lose. i told myself yesterday was start day...so far..ive been good for two days lol. i cannot have many carbs at all...so start day yesterday meant...gotta stay away from the oatmeal and cereal.

    okay...enuf about me. im sure you all know plenty about me already and for those who dont...you will.

    welcome again to all.
    Thank you for sharing! And re the boyfriend, I saw a tutor at school tonight. She was one in my first group of art students and is a senior this year. She was wearing a t-shirt that said "DUMP HIM!" lol Picture of a guy in the back of a dump truck getting unloaded along with a bunch of dirt.

    Not advice at all. I just thought it was a funny logo.

    I'm Phyllis. I'm from "hick-ville" Washington. I'm 51, started weight training 2 years ago, it changed my life. I'm separated from my husband of 30 years, have 2 grown kids. I work as a stylist and personal trainer for women.
    I love reading these forums for my own motivation and all the wonderful training tips. You woman inspire me greatly.
    I love going to the shows and being surrounded by like minded people that "get" this lifestyle.
