Default Mini-Goal: Happy with my body

This is a BIG mini-goal, but I am finally happy with my body. I still want to lose a bit more weight, but I no longer feel any sort of URGENCY to lose this weight and I can slowly let the last few lbs fall off as they may.

I follow LeanGains and count my calories. I go to the gym 3x a week and I lift heavy weights. (I am following Stronglifts5x5.) I walk my dog for cardio but as it gets colder, our walks are getting shorter. It feels so good to see what my body can accomplish. Now that I can deadlift my bodyweight, I feel so much lighter than I did when I was just losing weight. I realize that 156lbs isn't really that heavy. Please feel free to ask any more specific questions. Anyway, on to the pictures:








Congratulations to all you lovely ladies and handsome gentlemen who are reading this now and working actively toward changing your lives. It is worth it, 100x over.

It is a crazy feeling when you do finally feel that way. It was only VERY recently that I realized I felt that way. I don't know what did it, I just felt good about my body finally. Thank you so much for the compliments!

LeanGains is a "diet" that utilizes Intermittent Fasting (typically 16/8 fasting/eating windows each day) and heavy weight lifting with minimal (or no) cardio. I think it is great, but I wouldn't recommend it until you are a relatively close to your goal body fat% (like 4-5% away maybe). Intermittent Fasting, however, is great and I WISH I had done it all along. I was eating 1200 calories a day when I was over 200 lbs, but I eat 1600 on rest days and 2000 on workout days and will still lose about a half a pound a week. (I'm sure I would lose more than a pound a week if I was still over 200 lbs.) Thank you so much and please let me know if I can better answer your questions!

Thank YOU for being so kind! I looked at SO many of the before/after pictures when I was first starting my journey and they really helped me stay motivated, so I always told myself I would post mine if I ever made serious progress.

Wow look super hot in your costume, u r beautiful and I am so jealous I don't think I will ever be able to wear shorts like those.
I don't have a gym membership but do have some weights at home do u have any suggestions on what I could do to get my legs tight.
I have a bar, adjustable hand weights and kettlebell all weights.
