That's from a month?
Holy hell, what've you been doing to get those results?
This.
This all the way.
C'mon! Let us know!
You look great!

Eating well; small meals every three-ish hours, 2L of water daily etc
Exercise for about an hour a day, just basic cardio things, push ups, sit ups and you can find a whole heap of target specific workouts on youtube which were quite helpful.
Pretty simple really 3nodding


That in a month... woah jeez, girly. Now you got me inspired. Any favorite meals or recipes? biggrin

Your body is looking great! But you really should be drinking at least 3 L of water each day. Especially since you're working out so often. If you don't consume enough water when working out, your body will retain water weight, which might be causing a little bit of your weight gain, other than the muscle mass weight.
Awesome progress! You've toned up quite a bit. If you don't have one already, get one of those flexible/soft measuring tapes and measure your hips/waist/bust/arms. It's a more accurate way of keeping track of weightloss instead of a scale.
No offense but its highly unlikely your weight gain is from muscle mass. Unless you have been eating more calories than your body needs a day, since you need to be in calorie surplus for you to gain any muscle mass and for women to put on any muscle mass at all also requires heavy weights and extream workouts.

When you workout you break down your muscle and then it repairs itself, which in turn makes it stronger, but what most people dont realise is the muscle surrounds itself with some water while repairing, resulting in localised water retention. This is probably why you are experiencing a gain in weight.

That being said you look brilliant! Your tummy looks amazing, I would say work on legs next

BEFORE.
AFTER.

I've been watching my diet and casually exercising for a month and a bit, but I've put on 3kg :/
From the photos I think it might be muscle though..hopefully.. Perspective from others would be greatly appreciated.

Anyway, I'd appreciate any critique you have on my current body; such as things I need to tone up and maybe even which muscles need to be targeted.

My self esteem is fine, so please don't give me any of that "you're fine the way you are" stuff. I just want my body to be fitter smile

How long have you been training? & yes your body is great I've always loved women with nice toned legs so my advice would be to do legs more!! Other than that great transformation. You should also put your before/after weight and waist measurements smile

Wow! That's some serious improvement!
Just remember, it's not your weight that's important. It's your BMI, and though your photos look great, you should still have some kind of idea about your BMI range.

I'd just like to thank everyone for their lovely encouraging messages heart

Progress photo!


The photo linked above was taken about a fortnight ago and since then I've noticed I've even got a small thigh gap developing (soooo ecstatic about it!)! My current weight is now 67kg too. I think I may've been holding water weight when I first made this thread.

Can't really tell from the pics, but if you squat and deadlift more, you'll build dat a**.

Ughhh. I wish I had that body. It's perfect! You have amazing ab muscles. Good job.
Personally, I think you looked perfectly fine before! But the after looks just as great! Hopefully I can tone myself up like that soon!
I honestly liked your before better. Girls are supposed to be softer to me.
