Lift. Eat. Sleep. Repeat.
Hey, I'm Georgina. 21 years old. England. I'm a undergraduate student studying Sociology and Criminology.

I began power lifting (squats and deadlifts) around March 2013. Squats 10kg (23Ibs) and Deadlift 7.5kg (16.5Ibs) and then began barbell benching early November 2013 around 30kg (66Ibs).

I'm 5'7. I've only weighed myself once in a year and last I checked I was 170Ibs. Gained about 20 pounds (mostly muscle) in that year and regained my health.

Bulking Cutting

Squat PR - 80kg (176.3Ibs)
Deadlift PR - 82.5kg (181.8Ibs)
Barbell bench press PR - 45kg (99.2Ibs)

Goals: Squat 90kg (198.4Ibs) by May 14th.
Bench Press 50kg (110.2Ibs) by May 14th. Deadlift 90kg (198.4Ibs) by May 14th.

It's been a tough journey as I suffered with restricting, binging and being obsessed but that's the old me. I want to be strong and be the best version of me. I've come a long way in beating my fear foods and not counting calories anymore.

Muscle VS Fat

THIS IS NOT A BEFORE AND AFTER! The first two photo are where i’m around 10st (140 pounds). The second/third/fourth photos are from around April 2013 and i’m 10st 5 pounds (145 pounds) and I stand tall at 5’7.

The first two photos are mainly cardio with some strength training. The second/third/fourth photos are equal cardio and strength training. I can see my arms, waist, hips and legs are smaller in the second/third photos even though I weigh 5 pounds more than previously!

Muslce and fat may weigh the same as indicated ^^ but look how dense the muscle is compared to the fat. And that is why I don’t rely on the scales anymore. Progress photos and a measuring tape are all I need.

“Women’s Weight Training Myth #1 -Weight training makes you bulky and masculine.” Due to the fact that women cannot naturally produce as much testosterone as males do, it is impossible for a woman to gain huge amounts of muscle mass by merely touching some weights.««

Now go Lift! And don’t be afraid to go heavy! :P
