K happy friday too you aswell!! That's awesome good for you Princess!:) I grew up without scales in my house, my mom believed it was just a number and didn't determine if u were fat or skinny what you see in the mirror and how you feel in your own skin is what I was taught. I still feel that way and only weigh myself once or twice a year out of curiousity or at my doc. I was curious about muscle v.s fat because I have toned up a bit since the last time I weighed in lol TGIF...

Ill try an answer ths question ... gaining muscle or how much  you can typically gain is dependent on a few factors... your training.. your diet as well as your body type... pound of muscle and a pound of fat still eqauls 1 pound ... muscle is dense ( mass) and takes up less space upon the body... fat has more volume.. but a pound is still just a pound.. you can get to the place where just mass is being added to your body and the number on the scale climbs ... but ths is a healthy weight... a way to check ths( well their is more thn one)..but  measuring with a tape measure is convenient ... their is no set ratio as to how much muscle a person can typically gain seeing as no two people have the exact physiological makeup as well again their training and diet factors... results vary frm person to person ...hope tht makes sense
