    You look amazing. Did you use NROLFW or stronglifts or....? Really interested to hear. I have almost the same measurements as you and have been considering heavy lifting.

    To answer the "what did you do/are you doing?" questions:

    I started with Stronglifts 5x5 (as I advanced, this was reduced to 3x5), which is an excellent full body, beginner program. I also highly recommend Starting Strength.

    I currently do a push/pull/legs split, 3 times a week. My routine is currently broken down as follows:

    Monday - Push:
    DB Bench Press
    DB Overhead Press
    Upright Rows
    Dumbbell Flyes

    Wednesday - Legs
    DB Squats
    Romanian Deadlifts
    Barbell Hip Thrusts
    DB Bulgarian Split Squats
    Abs (planks, sit ups, crunches, etc.)

    Friday - Pull (with some added leg work)
    Barbell Row
    DB Lunges
    Glute Bridges
    Hammer Curls
    Reverse DB flyes.

    Before, a few months prior to heavy lifting:


    170 lbs. Size 12 dress. Approximately 30% BF.
    Waist = 33 inches
    Hips = 41 inches
    Under bust = 38 inches
    Thighs = 23 inches
    Arms = 13 inches

    Now, 5 months after starting a progressive loading heavy lifting program:


    151.8 lbs. Size 4 dress. Approximately 20% BF.
    Waist = 27 inches
    Hips = 36.5 inches
    Under bust = 31 inches
    Thighs = 21.5 inches
    Arms = 11 inches

    17.2 lbs lost. 4 sizes lost. Approximately 10% BF lost. 21 inches (and counting) lost.

    Still think heavy lifting will make you "bulky?" Think again.

    Heavy lifting ladies, I invite you to post YOUR before and after pics. Maybe, just maybe, we can attempt to snuff out this, "WEIGHT LIFTING WILL MAKE ME HYOOOOGE" myth.

    That's the bulk I'm looking for! Well done!

    very impressive in 5 months.

    either that or the pretty face in the second pic makes it seem more dramatic :)

    @Dont_Stop, You look awesome! I didn't connect before to how fast you achieved these results -- about 6-7 months? Just incredible, and a testatment to your commitment to yourself.

    I'm still a before LOL, but I am hoping to have results like yours someday.
