So, my husband says baby, you should lift. My response? I dont wanna be a she-man! So he gets me this book, “Lift like a man look like a goddess” I have always prided myself on bein stronger than most women, but after two kids, my strength is down, and my weight is up. So, I read it. It makes sense, I hafta admit. And, after tryin every other workout, diet, etc, and still not gettin back the body I had when I was married? I figure its worth a shot!
I am 28, and when I was married at 20 I was a size six, looked great, and never worked out a day in my life, in fact, I still to this day feel distaste when think of gym class. so, ever since gettin poregnant with my son, almost six yrs ago, I have had this one pair of pants, my fave ones, hangin in my closet, waiting for me. My goal is to fit back ionto them, or, at least look like I could!! Yes, I know, I’m on a lifting forum and all I really wanna do is get “toned” and lose the fat, which I am gatherin are horrific things to hear on this site :).
However, since joining earlier this week, and poking around, my goals have changed. I don’t know how they do it, but I want the body those form competitors have, or at least come close! Hell, I’d settle for not bein embarrassed wearing shorts and a tight shirt again. maybe even a bikini by next year? But then again, I might be askin too much, but those are my goals!!!
