The young woman keeps herself motivated by setting personal goals and working hard to achieve them. This can be seen from her post on Reddit where she has documented her progress by being consistent for a month and gaining 5 pounds. Therefore, she is a testament to the fact that dedication and hard work can lead to great results.

Gaining Muscle

Many people in the Reddit thread had doubts about her gaining 5 pounds of pure muscle.

It is a vital reminder that muscle gain is a gradual process and patience is necessary.

Contrary to common belief, lifting weights is not reserved only for men but also women who desire to build physical strength and gain muscle. Hence, more women should incorporate weightlifting into their fitness regimes.

It encourages women to shatter the stereotype that strength training is only for men. Every person can achieve fitness goals with consistency, dedication, and patience.
