I don't have the normal woman's body, either. I have long arms and legs, short torso, no narrow waist. With only 2lbs difference since last September, and with eating tons of food since starting this weight lifting thing, I'm surprised. I have no idea if it's muscle, fat or water. But dang, we're talking a 10oz steak, a 7.5oz can of salmon and more meat for dinner. Already that's major calories. On top of that, potatoes, vegan desserts (I'm a sucker for vegan cheesecake and pudding), dark chocolate, plenty of veggies, sweet potatoes, pats of butter, the works. This is great, actually. I can see muscle definition on my arms a little bit. My legs look awesome when I'm doing squats. Otherwise, I look pretty much like I always do.
Female, 5'3", 49, Starting weight: 163lbs. Current weight: 135 (more or less).
I can squat 180lbs, press 72.5lbs and deadlift 185lbs
