This will the first year I can go to Nationals-yay! I’m doing things a little different for this tournament, however. Usually I try to lose about ten pounds to get into one particular weight class, barely eating anything up to the tournament, wistfully looking at the smaller weight division.
Not this time.
I am not making any active attempt to lose weight. Granted I’m eating sensibly and not diving into a pint of Ben & Jerry’s, but I’m just not going to worry about my weight. Hell, I’m seriously considering registering for the heaviest weight class there is. A bit extreme, but I am set this tournament on walking onto that mat feeling good and ready to go and not worrying about the scale. Someone asked if that’s what I was willing to trade- fighting heavier women in exchange for less stress at scale, and to be perfectly honest….
Yes. Yes I am.
