New Female Fitness section
The women have their section!
As the description states, discuss training, nutrition, bb'ing or overall health for women. This section will be strictly enforced...yeah yeah yeah, what else is new
We are also looking for someone (a woman!) to lead this section. If you interested in this opportunity please PM me. Thanks

Hopefully this will make it easier in the future to find articles and discussions about training for women that I can pass onto my sisters and some female friends that ask me about workout tips for them.

Does AM have a high enough volume of female users to accomodate such a section, or will this be employed as an attempt to generate more female users?

We have several women posters and i'm sure many more that just lurk. This may be what they need to feel more comfortable to contribute more... It would also help bring more females as well. All imho.

Here's my post from one of the newbie threads:
My first post too! I am in the same boat as you. I'm a newbie too.
Compared to last year I am leaner (Yay!) and compared to 2 years ago, I look almost like a different person. Just to give you an idea, I've dropped from a size 20 to a 12 in that time. However I still have a long way to go, and know that the easy part is over with now, and the hard part is from here on out! This is "phase 3" , changing my body composition. I have renewed enthusiasm!
I am *very* new to much of these things but I do have a basic understanding of what I need to do, and how my body can do it.
I am 5'8" and 175 lbs, long arms and legs. I have always "carried" my weight well, but now I want to do something not just about my weight but about my physique and metabolism. My goal is to be "mean and lean" (maybe 135 lbs) with higher BMR/RMR so I can control my weight more and also be toned and stronger. I am pretty strong for a gal (esp. a newbie at this level) but aint what I used to be . I'm 36, I guess I can't expect to do what I did when I was half this age, or can I?
In addition to my multi vit, I Am taking:
ECA (2 weeks so far, man I have never sweat so bad at the gym before, til today!)
Biotin (also for hair and nails)
and 5-HTP and Chromium Picolinate as well as Fiber Tabs to control my apetite. Not to mention I drink a lot of tea, and energy drinks. I think I have the right "idea" but definitely need some training on how to enhance and get better results.

Hey there Bassgirl. Sounds like you've been doing great so far. How has your progress been lately as judged by measurements/mirror? Since you are taking an ECA stack, it would be a good idea to limit other sources of caffeine (such as energy drinks).

Progress has been kinda slow since Turkey day. I consider it a bonus I havent gained any weight. I went down 1 lb last week. Hey, still good right? Esp. for this time of year. I can tell my legs are starting to take shape, especially around my knees and quads. And today at the Y, I was doing my pulldowns, and began to notice a few things. I found out I had muscles I didnt even know I had! I usually notice this particularly the "morning after" a new workout item. (Ive been overweight since I was a kid). My arms are a lot less wobbly now, a lot firmer, but I am still flabby, esp in the middle. I know this is going to take a while.

Hey bass girl, whatever you are doing now, it is working for you. If it is working, i.e. you are still losing weight and feeling firmer all over - by all means continue with it. No need to change something that isn't broken, all it takes is a bit of patience, you will get there!

That does sound good, given the season.

I just wanted to post in the girls thread.
The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.-Psalm 18:2

LOL. Looks like we'd better keep a low profile; otherwise, we're gonna scare 'em all away
