I've never posted pics in the forums on here before, so here's hoping I don't F this up...
OK let's see if any of that actually worked correctly...*fingers crossed*
After 10 months with a bulking and cutting phase:
Lifting has made me feel more awesome inside and out!
I do not have any proper before pics as I was very very camera shy due to the weight I had gained. However, I did find one taken on holiday just before I started on MFP at the age of 44.
I lost 37lbs through a reasonable caloric deficit and lifting over the course of a year. Since then I have done a bulk and a cut and am now reversing back up ready to bulk again. A couple of my most recent pictures, now at 46 years old:
I remember this thread. I saw it and thought to myself 'I want to be one of the women in here.'
Last May, about 165, before I started New Rules of Lifting for Women (I started back on MFP on April 27th, started lifting about 3 weeks after that, have logged in every day since)
After New Rules and starting StrongLifts! (Imgur says this was 10 months ago so August 2013)
you look a m a z i n g!!! I know it's all about the recomp, but you look like you've lost waaay over 30lbs. You inspire me to get my @$$ back in the weight room!
btw... totally get why you don't want to cover all that awesomeness up with clothes
Now, 1/3 of the way through Strong Curves
AND sometimes I actually wear clothes. But rarely.
Lifting 5x per week on a deficit and working with a trainer. I killed it every single session.
My overall results of lifting from start to now.
