    thank you so much for posting this. I just started lifting and have been so discouraged as I barely can do a few squats with the bar on my shoulder. Can't even do one single push up. When I leave the gym I sometimes think "there is no way I can do this" . You have given me hope that it is doable . I just cannot understand why lifting seems so difficult and foreign to me, despite the fact that I love other exercise such as running and spinning.
    Thank you for the encouraging post, you look great. I am sure you will inspire many of us.

    Please keep at it! I haven't even been doing this for very long..but I started squatting with just the bar, or the bar +10 lbs. Now, i'm looking at using the big girl plates soon (45s). I started out doing "girl" pushups on the knees. I finally am able to do some real pushups (i do 4 at a time). You can get there, just keep at it!

    oh those push ups are still killing me:frown: . I do them against the window sill and still can't do that many, but hopefully that will change.
    Congrats on your great progress.

    You look great, but I only have one question - do you wish you started earlier? Because I'm kind of close to my goal now and am thinking about starting weights in a couple of weeks.

    No need to feel nervous even if you are the only woman in free weights - BOYZ! - section ever. Most of us are very lonely there; and you know what? We don't give a damn. We rock!

    What macros have you used throughout weightloss and bulking? I know you said you measure and weigh your food, but are you very strict with what you eat like absolutely no sugar etc? You look amazing!
