Thanks so much for your kind words, really nice to speak with people of a like mind! I currently train alone, so very nice to be around people that understand what it's really about.
And Mrodz regarding my avatar, I took that only last week of myself, I put it on my facebook profile as was really please with my progress, I mainly got negative comments saying I was going too far. Sometimes you just can't win, I was once too fat, then too thin and now too muscly. Guess it's lucky I don't care what people think or say so much anymore, I have my goals and I definitely ain't gonna change them for anyone!
Thanks once again and I will definitely try and stick around!

I have really enjoyed reading this thread! :-D
I love lifting heavy, and pushing myself to new limits! I have some decnt muscle but do not consider myself masculine. It really bothers me when I do see women who are curling 5's because they don't want to get bulky. Then I think about it. My irritation comes from there MISINFORMED actions. They do this because they don't know any better.
You look at women's 'fitness magazines' and it is mostly about getting skinny, not building muscle. Muscle is what gives you shape, makes the curves.
Women are told to eat low-fat, low cal diets. Where is the protein???!
Anyway thank you for all those who have replied! It is inspiring and comforting to know that others agree :-D
