Bikini Pictures and Recap
WARNING! WARNING! These are pictures from my bodybuilding bikini competition. Bodybuilding is a sport that judges athletes on their physiques, therefore the posing suits are very small across all divisions, including men’s divisions. If you have kids or feel weird looking at women in small bikinis that show a lot of booty, then skip this post for another day. I write about lots of other things too. 🙂
As I’ve mentioned in my weekly competition prep videos, it was a weird prep this time around because I am on American Grit and have been actively promoting the show, so the bodybuilding competition’s importance was pale in comparison. That said, I did feel like I made improvements to my physique, not only from the Off Season to show day, but from last October when I won 1st place. Alas, I didn’t bring home any trophies this time. While that sucks, I’m still proud of the work I did and am happy with the way I look.
These competitions are subjective, but I’m pretty sure my downfall was that I tried out some new side poses that made my waist look wider. Next show I’ll go back to what works best on my body. My congratulations go to the ladies that won.
On the plus side, I LOVE my camo bikini which custom designed by www.suitsbyjodi.com and ended up snagging a sponsorship for my next show. Whoo hoo! If you order from her, please tell her #LisaTraugott sent you.
Also, I want to thank my sponsor Egg Whites International. I love their liquid egg whites already so it was an easy partnership. They are giving a $10 off all egg white orders with the #discountcode #ShesLosingIt and are giving a FREE t-shirt with any 4-gallon purchase. Here’s the link: Egg Whites International
Thanks to my trainer, Robin Johnson Jr., who is already plotting new and creative ways to grow my glutes more for the next competition.
Lots of people comment on bikini pictures when you’re winning. I love all of you for your encouraging comments, DMs and texts messages knowing that I lost this one. You guys make this journey worth it.
My husband, Henri, and kids were my biggest cheerleaders.
The best part of the night, after the show, were drawings my kids made for me back at the hotel room.
I may not be holding a trophy but I’m still standing before you as a winner. 🙂 Also, while in Houston I got to be interviewed on FOX, which was way cool! I spoke about American Grit and my book, “She’s Losing It!” which is the story of how I lost 50 lbs. by entering a bodybuilding competition.
I’ll be back at it in a few weeks at the Texas Shredder to defend my title and I will also be doing 5 minutes of stand-up comedy before the night show as my #birthdayscare for the year.
