Hey fitness Bees 🙂
I just wanted to check in and see how you ladies are doing. I also wanted to share a little bit of my recent progress! In the past month- month and a half, I’ve upped my gym days to 5 days a week (lifting 3 days, Zumba 2 days) and I have to say I have noticed a very fast improvement in my muscle definition!
I’m most proud of my booty, but I’ll spare you all more pictures of me in my underwear lol! I’m also incredibly pleased with how my back looks. I’ve never ever had definition in my back and now I do!
So ladies, what progress have you noticed recently? What are you most proud of? And what’s your favorite workout to do?
Here’s a picture of my back from July 6 (left) and October 1 (right)

I looove lifting and because of that I’ve gained far bit more than I’d like mainly because I eat so much more and I’m not eating the right things. So now I’ve shifted to more circuit training and cardio and only lifting 2 days a week rather than 3-4.
Keep up the great work!

I’ve really noticed that I’m getting stronger too. Weights that used to be a struggle for me are like lifting nothing now! I’m consistently adding 5-10 lbs to each exercise each time I do it.

I made a lot of progress visually in the first 12 months I was lifting weights. It’s much more subtle now but I’m focusing on strength rather than aesthetics and enjoying how much I can eat.
Second one is February 2013 to July 2014. I went from 77.1kg to 61.4kg.

SpecialSundae: You look fantastic! And I bet you feel great! Keep it up!
This is my 4 and a half month progress. I actually haven’t lost any weight at all. Still at 130 lbs. but I have gone down two pants sizes. I went from a U.S. 8 to a 4!! Sorry about my underwear!

This is from the Superbowl 2 seasons ago when the Ravens won….notice the beginning of the double chin
July 2013, my friends wedding, my meds effed up my metabolism, thus making me almost 150 lbs :'( The heavieest I have ever been. It got worse when I went into the hospital last Oct…..but I cant find a pic. The dreaded “armpit fat” kept creeping, and my stomach is disgusting…..but. Im getting closer
Both of these are from within this week. Down to 134.1 lbs, pretty close to my high school weight(Im 24) Im thinking about 2-3 lbs more due to the slow but steady toning(yay yoga and dog walking) my midsection is making me look less and less pregnant, and my arms are toning. Luckily, I just started working in the produce dept at a grocery store, so lifting all those pumpkins this fall will help!
I dont want to be a stick, I love my hips, my butt, and my legs….but that damn double chin haunts me in so many pictures. And I want my tummy to be flat enough that crop tops/ high-low tops can be an option

I don’t have photos, but maybe I should start!
I started eating ealthier and doing some light exercise and I’ve lost ~15 pounds. I couldn’t be more thrilled! My tummy is flatter and my arms are toning up a bit as well!

komatsuPC600: You look great!!
I’m really proud of the definition I’m starting to see in my back! The pic on the left was taken October 1, the pic on the right was November 1. I think I’m going to try to do a bikini competition next year!
