So I've been bulking for about a year.

This is a several months before I started bulking. This was me at my 'unhealthy heaviest' (113 lbs).

Then me after losing a teeny bit of weight...

And then after bulking (me at my 'healthiest heaviest' (115 lbs.)--

I would like to continue bulking for another year, but over the course of several months, I've become incredibly inspired to try powerlifting. I joined an all-women Facebook group for powerlifters and I'm so happy to see how positive they are and that there's really no 'broscience' to be found. I also took up a board position at my university's Bodybuilding and Powerlifting Organization. I decided that for now, I'm putting my goal of competing as a bodybuilder on the back burner and I'll be focusing on increasing my strength as a powerlifter. I plan on competing in a local meet in mid-Feb.

Training for bodybuilding has made me reevaluate my disordered eating habits and has given me a healthy relationship with food as well as a confidence in my body that I never had before. With this new goal in mind, I hope to develop an even better mindset-- humble (someone will ALWAYS be stronger than me), but confident in the things my body can perform.

Onto my new journey! :)

CURRENT STATS :
5'2"
115 lbs.
Squat 205x1
Bench 105x1
Deadlift 200x1

GOALS FOR FEB-MARCH :
225-240 Squat
115-120 Bench
220-230 Deadlift

    Ah, thank you! That's actually one of my main worries for powerlifting. My numbers are 'impressive' for a casual lifter, but definitely not powerlifting competitive. I'll be working on hitting PRs! : D

    Don't worry about being competitive.

    I'm going to compete in a comp in january, shooting for 100kg class, and my best lift, DL is currently 435 max.

    I'm just going because I'm very sure I'll look friggin' sexy in a singlet.

    I know that I should just go into my first meet and treat it as a learning experience, but I have to admit that I'm pretty terrified of embarrassing myself in front of people. >__> So I want to at least be somewhat confident in my lifts. I'm not going to be disappointed if I don't reach my goal PRs in time, but I'm still going to shoot for them. :)
