So far there are 7 girls in my class, Figure Novice Short. I assume by show time there will be 8 or even 9. Either way knowing how many, makes me want to work harder. I know I have weight on me but maybe someone will show up with weight and has no idea how to pose. It's possible. Anything is possible... My new goal is to place! I won't be disappointed if I don't but it makes me want to work harder.
