Any moms compete? Or thought of it? *Personal Update

There is is woman that goes to the gym on base (my husband is a marine) who I always admired from afar. I had the courage to talk to her like a month ago about how I think she has an amazing body esp her back (creepy I know but she is super fit). She told me she is trying to get her pro card and in training for a physique competition. She mentioned to me that I have a good body type to do the same or even bikini (which hell no because of my stretch marks). 

I haven't seen her in a month because I've been going to another gym... I saw her today and she brought it back up... She said when I am ready to let her know and that she could give me the number of her coach. I am debating maybe doing it just to get in shape but maybe compete if I get to the point I am confident. But does anyone compete? (Bodybuilding, physique, bikini, or fitness) or ever thought of it?

Update: I finished my initial assessment with the coach. We talked and I just need to talk it over with my husband again. But I am going to do it. I will be starting with a 3 month off season plan and see how my body reacts. We will be working in really leaning out and then afterwards building muscle. I'm super excited for this journey to the stage one day.

No, that's not for me. However I have a couple friends who do, and one who coaches...provides meal plans and everything.

At least you get four, I only get two a day lol. I guess i can also do four, but I would have to do two trips to the gym since the daycare in there you can't leave them more than two hrs at a time
