I'm with those who say to find a different goal. Feeling awesome and lifting weights has been my goal. I don't look any different now than I do in my little avatar photo which I took last July, but when I move around, there is visible muscle moving around and that looks better. Plus I have a spring in my step and feel pretty awesome most of the time. Feeling this way makes me almost feel sorry for the skinny girls I see all around me who probably feel as horrible about themselves as I did in my youth when I was thinner.
Female, 5'3", 49, Starting weight: 163lbs. Current weight: 135 (more or less).
I can squat 180lbs, press 72.5lbs and deadlift 185lbs
