There is such a misconception about lifting weights. Yes, you CAN get big and bulky by lifting but it takes a LOT of work that you have to do on purpose. Many women lift and stay slender. I know some women who have lost all of their weight JUST by lifting, avoiding cardio. Of course food always has a lot to do with losing weight but lifting should be a big part of it, too. Lifting can speed up weight loss which is a huge win if you ask me. If you don’t want to look like a female version of The Rock, focus on using smaller weights with higher reps. If you want to bulk up, use heavier weights with smaller reps.
Women need to stop being afraid of lifting weights. I hope this short blurb changes your perception.
