    Coach says I get to do a mini-cut when I hit 200 lbs. Six more pounds! I can't wait. Who'da thunk a person can get sick of food?!?

    Just browsed your profile. Girl.

    👏👏👏👊💪

    I think I am done with the weight loss. I am about 0.5lb from goal (a goal which I just randomly made up anyhow) I still have higher bodyfat than I would like but at this point I am happy with my shape, just want to see if I can recomp to tighten up and build a little bit. I have low expectations even if I maintain what I have it's fine too. I might do a small cut in July/August to get ready to bulk in the fall if I need to. I really have to make sure to push it in the gym and get my workouts in.

    This week I have been eating a bit more, so hopefully I will officially be in maintenance by next week.

    Any chance of a blog post to outline where you stand and what the goals are? Always enjoy your post and the progress you made is amazing to see.

    @AmbitiousButRubbish I will try my best to get around to it! Thanks for all your support, means a lot. I am glad someone reads them, even if it's just one person :p

    @sardelsa Of course! Your blog is great. Its easy to get in great shape when you have lots of time. Way more amazing when there are kids in the picture. With 3 I'm amazed you even have time to work out. Gives me hope that some day I might actually get to my goal if someone else can do it in a similar situation.

    @sardelsa, I'll admit to reading your blog at least as often as you've updated it! :D

    Well this is probably the first week in several months where I did not gain a 0.5lb 😂...

    I ate to the point where I just couldn't comfortably eat any more in a day, so far I'm just going to refuse to do that to myself...

    I did make small but gains nonetheless with the tape measure and my waist and caliper pinches are pretty much the same...

    Also was still able to add reps or weight to all my key lifts... Although I'm admittingly pretty sore

    The mirror has been rather kind to me as of late as well, I feel like I look leaner and better than ever honestly...

    Which for myself is always the biggest struggle, I'm finally starting to feel like I look pretty good and not just pretty good for how far I've come...

    My weight loss, usually when I get down
    To 212 people start start asking if I’m seriously ill or terminal, the joys of diet face 😂

    Are you still planning on cutting sub 200? Last time I really cut I got to about 190 before people starting suggesting that I "eat a sammich" and other nonsense. I even had one lady call me "skinny"... at 190... wonder what she would have thought of me when I was 130. ;)

    The ‘plan’ is to be on stage at 200-202lb
    Weather or not it’ll happen is anyone’s guess at this point, totally flat at 217lb

    Cannot image getting called skinny at 190
    I’d probably have a few interesting words to say If some lady did 😂

    My coach reneged! He says we’re going up to 210 lbs before I get to cut, instead of 200. *kitten*

    I’m consoling myself with the fact that it is because I’m putting on muscle pretty well. Approximately 4.5 lbs since October. Pretty good for a nearly 45-year-old female!

    Good luck. How tall are you?

    That’s excellent! Heck, it probably took me a year to put on that much.

    I've been bulking for almost 2 months now - carrying an extra 7 pounds +/- , just starting my cutting cycle - I dont really like to eat too much while bulking - true I gain less LBM but after cutting and losing some of the LBM I feel i retain the equal amount of muscle as a person who bulks traditionally

    IIRC there's some solid recent research suggesting that lean bulking is better/more efficient than the traditional "eat big to get big" monster bulks. However, I know @jseams1234 does well going full panda so YMMV.
