Took these a week or two ago and forgot to post them - this is me at around 137 lbs. Over the summer, I wasn't able to squat or deadlift much due to a hip injury, so I focused on my upper body lifts, and worked on improving my body composition while maintaining a stable weight. Because my weight wasn't changing much, I figured there would be much of a change...but comparing them to my last set, I definitely see some improvements, like in the width of my back.

Now I'm off to the gym! Got some more PRs I need to crush...

Thanks guys!! I'm closing in on 140, which was something I never thought I could achieve before I found this forum. Chewy, your SL log was what inspired me to start the program 6 months ago, and it's hard to believe how far I've come with it! 260 lb 1x5 deadlift and 210 lb 5x5 squat at 140 lbs, and I was 110 lbs not so long ago when I first found this forum!

Just a quick update to show you all that I'm still alive.

80-hour work weeks + studying for exams + trying to have a life = going to the gym a bit less than I'd like (twice a week usually). I basically had 6 months from September-March where I made no progress due to an injury and subsequent rehab/reconditioning, but I'm back to full health and hitting PRs again. Working on upping the cardio - want to drop some body fat.

In any case, here is some progress combined with ridiculous faces. My back has definitely widened a bit and I've gained some mass pretty evenly throughout...

For comparison's sake, here I am about 18 months ago:

Freaking nice going!
