I have recently begun exercising,(cardio and strength) and in the past nine months have managed to lose around 85lbs. I feel pretty good and can see some trace of nice muscle coming through all over.
I am considering seeing how far I can take it (within healthy limits)
and maybe even compete some day. *However* I have had three kids (last one born ten months ago) and have the hellacious stretch marks, lose wrinkled skin and tiny, saggy, pendulous bustline to prove it !
That said, could I ever have a hope in heck of competing? I heard there is nothing to be done about stretch marks, the accordion-like skin folds on my stomach, (it really is skin not fat, (though there's more than enough of that too) because because it's thin folds and doesn't snap back ) may or may not ever tighten again and the bosom (or lack thereof) is likely to stay this way. I don't want cosmetic surgery and couldn't afford it anyway. I suppose figure competing is out, eh? LOL
Should I just keep on like I have been and go for my own private best or could it be worth aspiring to more?
