    I am assuming you are working towards a competition. Great progress and yes lifting Heavy destroys fat as long as you are consistent with a good diet. This is good stuff. If you were to just lift light and easy with high reps you wouldnt have seen the results as fast as you did. Great Job.

    So funny you mention the 3s... my gym has a 'women's only' room. I went in looking for a squat rack but was met by 3 pound dumbbells instead. And they were pink (for real). Ya think I should do 20 or 30 reps with them? Or will that bulk me up too much? LOL.

    Actually, no, I'm not working towards a competition, but I'm flattered that you think so!

    I'm just incredibly vain and I'm not a fan of seeing a squishy version of myself in the mirror.

    Also, being strong is pretty effing amazing.

    LOVE that more and more women are starting to realize the benefits to lifting heavy and move past the myth!! I absolutely love being strong!!

    Here are my pics (lifting pic was taken about 3 months ago so I've gotten a little bit more definition since then but you get the idea). Still not at goal but getting there :wink:

    Before 323lbs

    Ummmm DAMN! Awesome results
    This is the coolest thread ever! I lift, not super heavy yet since I am still starting out, but you can't shape fat! You can only shape muscle, and it won't get bulky without man hormones or roids!!!! Keep lifting ladies you all are awesome!!!!!

    I just wanted to say that my diet has been pretty much crap for a long time but I've been consistent in heavy lifting. My body obviously still continued to change. I would've had more progress and better results if my diet was better BUT...heavy lifting really does allow you to eat more and not see huge scale jumps or extra rolls on the tummy, as can be seen in the side-by-side I posted. I still managed to lose 20# and firm up lots of areas....while eating pop tarts, ice cream, pizza, hamburgers, etc. I'm not willing to give those foods up YET...but I am sacrificing hard abs in the process (this I know). Lifting has allowed me to endure life's bull$hit with comfort foods while not adding weight back on. This is a huge win for me. :)

    I just started lifting and I'm excited already! I was always into cardio but I found that lifting is a new and different challenge to me.
    Loving it already:heart:

    WOWWWW~~~!!!! How does one get started with a lifting program? I see things on the internet of course but have no idea how to do the exercises because they have names only, what weights are required, etc. Anyone point me in the right direction???? Do I have to buy a program or are there free workouts online? Looks like Stronglifts 5 x 5 requires a membership? 5/3/1 talks about weight lifting like I should know what they mean. :(

    THIS!!! I need help knowing how to begin! I want to look like that!!! :-)
