    The thing that helped me the most with the chin up and pull up was weighted negatives. I started with 5 lb plate (I loked like an idiot), and then went to 10 lbs plate. By the time I could do 12 30 sec negatives with 10 lbs plate, was when I first did full chin-up. Pull-up took longer since my tricep was never the super-star. Don't be afraid, think about one of the best thrills you gonna get in life. I still get it every time my chin flies over that bar! Chin and pull-up is a no-nonsense achievement.

    Wow, those some sweet numbers!!! I can't even dream of the BP with the biggest plate 115 lbs is my wildest fantasy You are super-talented!

Since I started seriously doing deadlifts in March, for which my 1rm was 230-235, I am getting pretty anxious xD
    I just glanced at your journal, I am guessing you are still in your twenties? Now I'm really jealous. You are getting such a great head start with healthy eating and exercising. I spent my twenties, thirties, and the first half of my forties eating a "healthy whole grains" diet and doing chronic cardio and wondering why my weight kept going up and I always looked puffy!
    Thank goodness for Paleo/Primal and weightlifting - honestly, without these two changes I would look a lot more like the average 45 year old woman I see around me - puffy and carrying an extra 30-40 pounds.

    Aw. Thank you! But I think YOU are the talented one. Right now I can bench 90-100 pounds but can't do a single pullup.
    Isn't it funny how we all develop strength differently? My trainer also claims I have strong legs for a gurl ...

    Oxide, thanks for the tip about taking pictures of what I eat. This morning I started measuring and writing down what I eat. I'll have to experiment and see what method works best for me.

    Here is to meeting our goals! hhe, trust me, I did my share of hanging around that bar looking like a ragdoll, and making the whole jumping up and pulling up, and the negatives with the 5 lbs plate probably made the Top 10 funniest things in my gym. Chin-ups and pull-ups will come. It will click. In all likelihood, if your bench is this high, it is a body working together thing, rather than muscular strength. I am trying to line up the trainer, and didn't get a call back for 2 weeks, that's so infuriating! I really want someone to observe me and get a form check. With both OHP and BP I gained a few lbs on the lifts once I readjusted the form. Anyway, sorry to go chatting like that

    I spent my 20s looking like this


    Funny thing is I used to have a racing bike back then and rode all the time.

    So, regarding the whole HSIS method...

    Wow, it is really super hard to eat that much fat! My target with the whole HSIS method is 108-162g and that's actually quite a challenge. I overdo it on protein, too. I know that PB's typical day is two meals, one very small more like a snack, and a bigger meal at dinner. My hat is off to you, PB, to be able to eat that much fat on so few meals. I can barely reach my target snarfing three meals a day and overdoing it on total calories.

    What I wonder is if I can actually achieve these HSIS targets, will it actually help me lose weight. Only one way to find out. Oh man, do I gotta take my kitchen creativity to a whole new level...
    Female, 5'3", 49, Starting weight: 163lbs. Current weight: 135 (more or less).
    Starting squat: 45lbs. Current squat: 175 x 3. Current Deadlift: 225 x 3

    Naw, I agree with Leida; 135 is a really amazing to be able to hit. Right now mine are at 95 lbs (a decrease from 105 half a year ago).

    Haha thanks! I am noticing the puffy changes too - I only get puffy on days when I go bezerk on the fruit carbs - 400g or so. I guess I am pretty lucky. I think a lot of it has to do with putting my mom's diet into consideration. She used to harp on me for eating so much fiber from wheat products and question why I didn't want to eat the fat from the pork she always cooked with various vegetables. There was never that much junk in the house either - so I guess I"m coming full circle back to childhood days. If only she would see how beneficial lifting weights are now...

    Today's keto-ish breakfast:
    Four eggs cooked in mixed oils, drank oils from bowl - so yummy.
    One pound of bacon.

    I realize this is a lot of protein, but I'm most likely only eating once today, so aside from that brief glucose spike I'll be burning fat for the next 23-ish hours.

It just means your body is making sure it doesn't eat it's own muscle to get a carb fix. It's part of how it relies on fat for energy instead. You WANT your body to do that. It's really very similar to how your insulin hormone is also lower on a low carb diet. It's just what happens.
    ^this --- and......... my doctor is a Paleo preaching MD and crossfitter herself! I have hypothyroidism and am currently trying to find my sweet spot on Armour Thyroid. She has never told me there is any connection between VLC and thyroid issues. She fully supports my low carb lifestyle and encourages me to continue on. I'd say there is nothing to be concerned about. I shoot for 10% carbs.
