I only gained about 7-9 lbs. Now I am 5'6'' and 123. I think a good amount of it is fat. I trained hard, I ate enought protein, I ate enough calories, I was almost always sore.

According to this guy it would be normal for a woman to only gain 4-6 lbs of muscle n her first year:However, I always see those incredible transformations on instagram and for a long time I thought I wasn't making enough progress.
