Welcome to our team! You have enough time. The question is whether you will have enough lean muscle mass underneath. Definitely worth going for it though. You can sparkmail me anytime with your questions. Wendy
"Every day do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow" by Doug Firebaugh
I started training beginning of March at 29% body fat and I'll be stepping on the Tampa Stage for my first Figure in less than 4 weeks and expect to be somewhere between 11-13% body fat. It's been really hard work, but it feels so good to know you have that kind of discipline that most won't! Are you in Tampa and if so, are you looking at the Hurricane Bay event? Also, congrats on quitting smoking, that's a big deal! - Tia
