    Still here. Still bulky. No new pictures though because I have decided to start my lifting program over again to perfect my form.

    Ladies, how do you decide on what to do for weight lifting!? Any good sites for a program that isn’t 5x5?

    Looking good girlie!
    Just about one year between these two. I've been on this latest fitness and weight loss adventure for almost two years now. Lifting heavy every step of the way!

    Thank you very much, I hadn't yet asked the question, but got it answered. ;)

    I love this thread. I started reading it 3 years ago and then I've just had to catch up on the last 2 years worth of posts, haha! Still fighting my fear of the free weights section at my gym though, I know it's psychological but I can't seem to get past it. I'm hoping that I can at least make a small difference with the machines and hopefully move to the free weights when I'm ready

    I think I began lifting (SL 5x5) in March of 2016 (top right photo). Weighed 151.7 lbs

    Other two photos are 1.1.2019. No longer doing SL but still lift about 4-5 days a week. Current weight fluctuates between 125 & 135 lbs.

    Great job... and beautiful song on your back

    Aww, Likeafox, I want to tell you to just go for it! You belong in the free weights section as much as anyone else. We all pay a membership!

    That being said, I still am intimidated by the squat racks. So now I try to do my leg days first thing in the morning - like at 6:30 am because then I don’t have to elbow my way to it. I use a small university gym (since Sept) so there are lots of superfit sports players... most of the time I am totally ignored, but lately some of these super sports boys actually acknowledge my 44 year old presence. It’s like I passed a test! I don’t lift nearly what they do, but who gives a crap. do what you do. If I can do it you can.
