I can finally see a difference since lifting.

This is just a difference in 3 weeks. It was not the begining of my journey nor it's the end.
Just a snapshot of what is happening after I incorporated weights with my cardio and eating right. :)

    Fantastic!! Great work, keep it up. I'll be starting tonight with the incorporation of weights into my routine so I like seeing others' results- it's definitely motivating. I'll have to remember to take before photos. :)

    Ok, so when I say I am lifting lol by all means I don't mean huge weights at the gym, not yet anyway.

    I am doing Chalean Johnson Chalean Extreme with dumbells. Upper body 10lbs and 15lbs pairs and lower body 25lbs pair. (so thats 50lbs with my squat sets and so on)

    I will get to the gym to lift heavy weights but for me these are heavy right NOW! lol

    Great work.

    Was that a replacement workout to cardio workouts you were doing prior?

    How did the calories eaten adjust from before to now?
  • Great work.

    Heybales,

    Not a replacement to the cardio, I added weights 3 to 4x a week with a HIIT cardio workout and on the off weights day a 60 minute cardio. I am doing TDEE with a deficit.

    I am eating much more and love it! Not hungry at all. :)

    Awesome results!

    Don't be ashamed of how much you're lifting at the moment.. As a beginner, the initial gains in neuromuscular adaptation will quickly allow you to become stronger in a relatively short period of time. Besides, you always want to take the time to ensure proper form before dramatically increasing load, volume and frequency.
