Aw look how wonderful you guys are..

Thank-You so much. I worked really hard to get were I am at. And I feel so great inside. I have loads and loads of confidence. And thanks to you I gained more motivation

Everyone on here is absolutely right, I'll never go back to be that thin. My mom nearly dead when she looked at how skinny I was. I didn't think it was a problem. I thought as long as you feel good on the inside, then I shouldn't worry what I looked like on the outside. I seriously thought back then that I wasn't skeleton looking. I ate a ton of fruit, I mean a ton of fruit. Ask my room mates how I ate. No supplements, no gourmet foods, no spices, rarely nuts or seeds, no powders.. The more instant carbs I ate the more energy I burned. And it was either on my bike riding hrs and hrs at a time or running long distance. So I did that with lifting no weight at all, now I know why I couldn't gain any muscle. I lost it all just from riding everyday.

On my earlier pic, I started getting back to the gym and going to classes, started running again and lifting weights, going to boot camp, and I gained muscle, probably because I had all the extra weight. Stop drinking, parting, and smoking when I turned 26. My diet was pretty much what bodybuilders do when they are cutting. So I gained a lean muscle physique. Sorta what I look like right now.

I been at home for a week and already I've gained 7lbs of muscle.
Before I move back home I was nearly 103lbs. I wasn't eating enough and also putting hrs at the gym. I felt like shit every morning. I just didn't have any money to afford any food.
I knew deep down inside I needed to do something about it. I made the hardest decision to go back home and leave my friends that mean the world to me.
Now, My mom has been filling the house with my favorite foods to eat. Fruits, vegetable, sprouting things, smoothie stuff, salads, she's even buying a dehydrator for me to experiment with gourmet foods. Should be really interesting.

I landed a full time job, had maintenance on my hair, and teeth, my passed injuries, car maintenance. I'm getting all washed up here. It's the most wonderful feeling to have. I'm able to afford things and not having to worry about how much I'm spending.

Here's some preparing and eating pics ( I eat like Giacomo (Lean and Green) he's tough me everything he knows)

Spouted mung beans, also I sprout a lot of Chick peas
Image

Two servings of Sun Warrior with bananas, and strawberries.
Image

For something sweeter, dates and almond bars (a smart man's home made Lara Bar)
Image

Two serving of Smoothie Infusion (I still had some left before I went away) I blended bananas and mangos.
Image
I'm running low, hopefully I can make it last until the next order comes.

I do eat more, but just haven't gotten around to taking more photos.

I'm open to more questions, comments or concerns.

I feel so grateful from hearing all this positive fed back from all of you. So many thanks, again <3
I'll make sure to keep this thread up dated. Cheers and all the best. :)

Your progress is phenomenal, especially you're abs and biceps, you go girl. Your face has such a uniquely wonderful structure that was hidden by those chubby cheeks, dont you ever go back to that again!

Good work, but I have to say it's physiologically impossible for you to have gained 7 lbs of pure muscle in a week.

Thanks Offense, and Dave :)

Zack you're right my mistake, I guess over a period of a month or so.
Lean and Green, thendanisays and Robert provided me with food in March. I didn't weight myself until I got home
The last time I weighted myself was when I was at 104 in Feb if I remember correctly.
I weighted myself last week now at 112.


I'm oot and a boot.
