I started my journey to get healthy two years and four months ago, but I didn't start seriously lifting until September 2015. Prior to that I was doing a lot of cardio and I was using weight machines, but last September I moved to the free weight room and everything changed!
I have to say I love lifting. The only goal I'm sure I have is I would like to get to 20% body fat-I am currently 25.8% according to a my last DEXA scan that I got. From Dec 21st to June 21st I only gained 1.9 pounds of lean mass. I am scheduled to go back for my next scan September 20 and I'd like to double my gains without the scale going up. I don't want to be big, I want to be more lean and defined.
I started out at over 50% body fat I'm sure and I weighed 260 pounds. I currently weigh 153 pounds. The scale doesn't really move much anymore as I'm losing fat mass and building muscle but I still would like to lose some more body fat and reach the 20% mark.
