Tosca competed! She did it again!

Well here they are! The pictures to show that I got up there and did it again! I placed third in the Masters category. Now I want you to remember something. I had only 6 weeks to get ready. This is not really enough time to prepare adequately for a contest. So going forward for the next contest which is November 22nd, I will be focussing on developing more cuts in my physique and building my shoulders so I can create a wider V-taper. I have a blocky waist so any extra width I can get up there is beneficial to my overall look. Also, just so you know, I was the oldest competitor in my category by ten years.
The day was long and exciting. There were highs and lows. The high was placing third and the next best high was the mouthful of red wine I shared with my fellow competitors back stage. My gal pal and makeup artist Franca was a gem because she took care of me all day. My face and hair looked great thanks to her. Berns did a wonderful job of my suits - all blinged out I was!!!
Can't wait to do it again in eight weeks. I promise to work hard and come in tighter next time.
All my thanks to you for supporting me through this contest.
Stick with me for round 2.
Love and hugs,

Tosca I am so pumped to hopefully be seeing you again! I want to be there! I love the pics you posted, but they really don't do you the justice you deserve! I was in the audience and you looked heavenly. When I first walked in and saw you standing with your man, I was all OMG! That's Freakin' Tosca! LOL I didn't have the guts to come over and say hello, but maybe next time! GIRL YOU ARE TOO HOT!

Paula said...
