Hi all. This is my before/now (a couple of weeks ago). The first pic was taken in January/2008 and the other two are from March(08.). I have no before pics of my legs :roll: I don't look huge now but at least there's less fat and they're better shaped muscles.
This is what happened in 2 months of training and vegetarian diet. Now I will be tracking myself since I'm switching to vegan and I have finally learned my drink-more-water lesson.

January:

Beginning of March:
Not a big change but I think it looks more balanced.

Lena01, you look great!

There is a definite change in two months and it is noticeable. You can see how your chest is raised by your shoulder and it is nowhere near like that on the first picture.

And the leg shot. That is some beautiful leg development. The calf, the separation in the quads. You obviously have great genetics for your lower body.

It will nice to see your progress pictures in the future. You should take full body shots (front and back) when you get a chance and you will be able to compare them to future ones.

I am impressed and delighted to read your posts on vbbf Miss Vascularization!

lol I just realized with your reply LeanandGreen that it is 2 months and not 3, idk what happened with my math there hehehe.
Ah my lower body genes! They're great fortunately but the rest needs a lot more time and work. I don't complaint really: I like working out these invisible triceps :D

The invisible triceps comment was cute, it made me laugh. :P But I can actually see some triceps in there, you can see the curve on the underside of your arm. So don't sell yourself short! :)

As lean and green wrote, your legs are fantastic! Great seperation! 8)

Yes, very nice legs. Look like we're opposites. My upper body develops better than my lower body. With my top half I can half ass my workout and still see results. With the lower half I gotta train til I wanna puke and pass out and still don't see much :/
I think they're getting better. I don't have any pictures of my legs. I always said I had chicken legs but I think they look a little better now.

It's called let's make the perfect woman out of you and me!! lol All we have to do is love and train our weak spots. I treat them like babies: any small improvement is very rewarding and with patience they will grow!!!
I've seen pics of you Marcina and your upper body does look great! Congrats!!!

Thank you all guys for your support, I'm feeling at home here at the forum!!!

April 8th: I'm thinking of updating my progress each month since that's what my training cycle lasts. Today was cardio day, I went and tried to run but I'm injured so I went for the bike. These are the pics I took once I ate, I was way too hungry when i came back lol

Let's see how it turns to be next month :roll:

pic two was taken by a mirror wasn't it. Looks like you have three legs :D

Two well built legs are enough I can't imagine the kind of butt you would kick with three!

Nice development. You get a better idea of what the muscle bellys in your arms look like from this pic as opposed to the original one for some reason. And they look good!

Calf is bulging out on the first of the three legs.

Happy to see you feeling so welcome over here. It's a pleasure to see your progress and give support.

Lena01, I agree with everyone else - very nice legs!

Alisonfsm, sorry about the cankles. I was graced with my mother's long, flat glutes so I feel your pain. Genetics - the gift that keeps giving!
