[quote="JP"]looking from your pics (cant see that well but maybe enough) it would already be time to hit the weights hard to increase the muscle mass ("tone") which is what makes those goal pictures look dramatic.
That, and airbrushing
And plastic surgery...
IMO, goals that have to do with strength/endurance/skill are better long term goals than
attaining a certain look or body fat percentage. More fun and less deprivation, plus you'll
be able to keep gradually improving your results for many years to come which is good for
motivation. From what I understand, people who compete in body fitness do not have
as low bodyfat as in your pictures between competitions, or for many years (which probably
wouldn't be very healthy anyway). Of course, if you do both strength training and cardio you
will get more muscle definition after a while. But getting a six-pack would for most women require
very restricted eating...
I hope this forum will inspire you to focus on the strength part of your goals and that you'll find
that it's fun to lift heavy (and eat a lot)
