    Great advice so far! However I will simplify it all greatly.

    Eat less (especially sugar) exercise more.

    The fact that you have stated that you are working out with weights 6 days a week and you don't already know that women have a very difficult time building muscle tells me that you are in the beginning stages of the process (meaning first 12 months of consistently eating right and working out 6 days a week). Perhaps far less than 12 months ...

    80% of your long term results will be diet related ... yes working out is important - but much less so that managing your calories .. you could get excellent results with modest or higher reos .. however without diet management over the longer term ... neither strategy matters ..

    IMO opinion spending far more time determining your TDEE and your exact macros will BY FAR yield you the best results over the next 12 months. Once diet is understood toning in literally a simple formula ... and you will know exactly how long it will take to reach your goal.
    HRT for life!

    TOTALLY agree with T2007...............Diet is the cornerstone....sorry to go so deep into my last post,but it is a science.........Understanding how YOUR body responds to things,is the Key........It's not a race...it's a journey that should be enjoyed..........Is it hard,,,is it a challenge,,,YES but it's so worth it..!!

    all i will add is dont change ur routine to often. try something new but give it a lil while before you change ur routine again. change is good but too much i found isnt effective for me. if i were in ur shoes i would shoot for 4 sets of 8 to 12 reps with going to failure on the last set or two. but with whatever u decide to do if you feel any bad pain not in the muscle but in the tendons and joints to back the weight off or substitute the exercise for a different one...its hard enough to get where you want to be healthy dd an injury and it will be a lot harder. u might also want to look at seth feorce you tube channel..he has a good leg volume day work out on there ....i started trying his lil tricks and exercises and i started to notice a big difference. i just chose him because i am lacking where he isnt and have about the same body type imo. so u might want to pick a pro female and watch how they train and try some of their work outs and see what u think

    We live on an island of knowledge surrounded
    by a sea of ignorance.
    As our island of knowledge grows,
    so too does the shore of our ignorance.

    For sure I’m new.... right at a year really of lifting so I’ve spent quite a bit of time just figuring out how to lift. I do track, prep, and weigh all my foods. I give myself one day off of weighing, but even on that day I don’t eat like an ass, I try to stay healthy. I guess I just need to find some patience!! Trust the process right??!! Thanks for the input. I appreciate it!

    Yeah don't beat yourself up...Look it's simple,if you don't like how something taste, you are not going to drink it........If it's not fun or rewarding you're not going to do it either...Don't make it a job you don't want to go too..Not going to BS you,it's work BUT once you start seeing results,,you will get up early and drink that nasty crap..!!
