Update on my meal plan/cutting phase mentioned previously: Things are going very well, and I have all my meals prepped and ready to go! I make my protein shakes the night before so those are the only thing I have to make during the week. I am hoping to post another progress picture this coming weekend. My friend recently received a scale that links up to her iphone and tells you your body fat percentage. I am thinking about getting one of these because I love measuring my body fat percentage. I think this shows more than actual weight on the scale. Muscle weighs more than fat :D Here is an example of what I am talking about
I just pulled this photo from google images, but it shows the general idea. Muscle takes up less space in the body and also speeds up your metabolism. This is why the person on the left looks bigger and not as toned as she does in the right picture.
Lifting weights will not make you manly. Female bodies cannot naturally look manly because we lack the testosterone levels that males have.
