Just another bulking update...

This was taken last week after 23 weeks at  a dietary surplus. I've now completed 24 weeks of bulking!!! Just a little over a week more (February 1st) then it will be cutting time. I was up 15lbs at my last weigh-in... 137lbs total. I will start logging food again when my cut begins. I have enjoyed not worrying about it for a while. I still pretty much eat the same stuff now as when I was logging so I know I'm around my calorie goal.
So at this point my size 4's are getting a bit too snug. My 6's are fitting comfortable-to-loose so I've been wearing them instead. My "fat clothes" I wore when I weighed 140lbs last January are still too big.
So... as much as I'm looking forward to cutting down again and seeing the results of all the hard work I've invested... there are a few things I will miss about bulking. It goes without saying that the extra food has been the best part... the part I will miss the most. :(  I will also miss feeling so much stronger in the gym. The extra food has really helped me to progress in my lifts. Last but not least... I'm going to miss some of my curves. What can I say... I like being able to fill up my bra... and I like the extra junk-in-my-trunk. If only spot reduction were possible... I'd keep a little extra padding in those places... but we all know it don't work that way :( 
okie doke yall... stick with your goals!!

My BF was at 11-12% before the bulk!

Your quads are so serious!! It's been fun following your bulk. I've never done more than 3 months (that's usually when all my clothes get too snug), so its been nice to see the results of a nice long dedicated bulk. I've never been able to get my delts to pop, and can't help but wonder if that's why....

I can't get my delts to pop either... despite working them twice and week and lifting as heavy as I can stand. I think we all have some muscle groups that build easy and others that lag...

Amazing work Stephanie! You've obviously been very dedicated to doing this right. Good luck on the cutting; I'm about 2-3 weeks behind your schedule :)

great stuff Stephanie. So were you aiming for about .5/lb per week? Interesting you did it without logging. You must know you're body very well!
