From Skinny-Fat to Fit and Muscular

I was the typical skinny-fat. I looked okay in clothes, but I wasn't happy. I started a new relationship and I wanted to not feel so insecure with my body around him. He showed me a couple upper body exercises and I loved how strong/sore the weights made me feel. I did some research, some trial and error and came up with a routine that I liked. Fast forward to now, I feel stronger than ever!

I'm currently on a bulk, so I'm in the process on gaining some muscle/fat before I cut down some fat for a competition. I plan on competing in a bikini comp after a couple years of bulking. Wish me luck! Bulking is such a taxing mental game.

Here's my progress so far.

    Thank you! : )
    You don't need a trainer. I didn't have one, so it took me long while to figure out a routine that worked well with my schedule. It's always a work in progress. If you'd like to start lifting, I suggest checking out the 'stickies' in the female forum of bodybuilding.com .

    Great story and you look beautiful. How much of a difference in weight in those pics. Im hoping with that muscle you weigh more but look smaller, thats what some women just dont get. Good work.
