    Agreed - and I got caught up in this asshole cycle, too. Although, I dropped weight like crazy...at some point, my body couldn't afford to lose any more weight, however.

    I like the fact it's a fad as classified by the NHS, with bird flu the other year anyone who phoned up NHS Direct got diagnosed by someone with no medical qualifications running through a flow chart thing as having bird flu.
    I must be different than everyone else, because my weight istn't budging and my carbs are way low - primarily veggies - don't undereat, don't overeat...?

    Sorry, I'm pretty new to this; a journal, as in stats and progress?

I have a long way to go, but that's OK! When I started, the most I did for back squats was 65 pounds. Today I did 105 pounds. Rah!!!

    I don't care if I don't lose another pound, or even if I gain weight, as long as my lifts continue improving, and my stamina when I spar in TKD improves. Inches have been decreasing around waist and hips, so I'm psyched.

    I don't want to be smaller. I want to be STRONGER.
    I was never scared of weight lifting, but I was doing it all wrong. Isolation exercises to the max. I couldn't even do an air ass to grass squat. How sad. Thank goodness a friend showed me how to do a bar squat.

    I'm glad you found lifting! I wish all girls I knew had the same mentality of getting stronger like you did. Then I'd have more friends to talk to about working out, lol.

    A lot of people start a journal here in the forums (there's a separate section here for them) to track their progress, list meals, get feedback or whatever they find helpful.

    Sorry, just now seeing this The program is Chalean Extreme. It's a dvd program that is meant to get women in to weight lifting. It's a three month program and you're encouraged to lift as heavy as you can. It's sort of like P90X for women. There are cardio workouts in the set as well, but I tend to skip the cardio and just do long slow walks and sprint sessions).

    I love this! I've almost always lifted weights, but for many years it was the 3-5 pound weights. Yes, they were pink Over the last couple months I've started doing 90 lbs squats and deadlifts and benchpresses. I feel so powerful My weight has stayed the same, yet I've lost quite a bit of body fat and lots of inches. I'm okay with being smaller and stronger

    {my last post for now, I promise, just trying to catch up}

    We need a Primal Women Lifting Heavy Things thread. I have very few females in my life that I can discuss weight lifting with. I always get so excited when I find women that "get it"
