    I LOVE LHT! Squats (front and back), deadlifts, and the Olympic lifts... clean and jerk is my absolute favorite! I lift wimpy amounts, but I'm also pretty small, so I just do as much as I can with proper form and enjoy the hell out of it!

    I also like astonishing the guys at work when I easily lift and carry a whole box of copy paper... heheheh...

    I didn't realize a whole box of copy paper was hard to lift?
    I think I've gotten the *jaw drop* reaction most of my life when I do things I don't consider physically demanding (but apparently others do?)... When I was bartending in a theater, the old-lady ushers told me I should get a man to carry my ice and drinks (cases of water, beer, sodas, bottles of liquor & wine, etc.) up the stairs, because if I kept lifting like that, I wouldn't ever be able to get pregnant. (*headwall*)

    More on-topic for this thread... I'm always amazed at people I know who spend HOURS in the gym and barely eat anything (at least in public) and don't seem to make any progress... I've always wondered what they're REALLY doing (even though this thread points out several reasons they could be doing what they're saying and failing)....

    I'm pretty small... 5'2", 107 pounds. The only other person who will even attempt to help me put the paper order away is a 6'4" tall former Marine. All the other men I work with either get the hand truck or say "let Goldie do it".

    Weak people make me angry. It's all I can do to hold in my thoughts. "How irresponsible can you be? If I broke my ankle, you COULDN'T CARRY ME. And you don't care, feel guilt, or feel even remotely responsible." The bare minimum strength requirement probably ought to be the ability to carry another person.

    Tremendous worms of a swarthy nature pursue me across the sandy blank sky. I stop to think. What the devil AM I up to?!

    This is actually why I started strength training. I wanted to make sure that if I was hiking and I or someone that I was with fell over the side of a cliff, I would be able to pull myself or that person back up (or maybe I've just watched to many 90210 reruns - Brandon & Dylan - cliff, lol). I also wanted to make sure that if someone was chasing myself and my child, I could pick up my child and still run like hell (thank you heavy lifting and sprints!).

    +1, absolutely. Also been there, done that. You are doing EVERYTHING RIGHT, according to what you read, are told, and have learned, but yet you are always hungry, always tired and don't lose weight. If working that hard to get where you want to be makes you an asshole, then I'm guilty, but I agree w/MissPiggy, these folks just don't know any better and I feel bad for them. It's an awful struggle and never ends well.
