    What kind of lifting were you doing Katherine?
    Low reps, heavy barbell stuff?
    I am starting at more like 240 lbs I think. over 100 lbs over weight.

    I started with powerlifts, and since then have added bodyweight exercises - pushups and chinups. I am very excited because I may well be able to do my first full chin-up in my next workout. My weight is now at 149. I am 5'4" and the leanest I have ever been.

    The three powerlifts are bench press, deadlift, and squats.

    OK cool I thought so, but wasn't sure if that was the term I had heard before, I normally use olympic lifting, but now i know LOL

    What else were you doing with that? Walking or running?
    Walking is fine for me, but is getting easier. I am walking a lot faster now, and last time I did some short runs too, but going to be careful with that and ease back into it.

    Starting strength is supposed to be fueled by lots of surplus calories to make sure that you progress, and Rippetoe recommends one gallon of milk per day, so good luck by that ladies!

    I was walking a 4.5 loop while the weather was good.

    I just now got finished reading this. Written by a woman, a very good read and the beginning of a series.

    I need to lose weight too and notice that my weight loss has totally stalled since I started lifting heavy. Deadlifts and squats. It IS very frustrating. And yet all of my clothes are hanging off of me now, and I haven't lost a pound in weeks. I know it's easy to say focus less on the scale but if you need to lose 100 lbs, at some point you have to start seeing a loss of pounds to be happy. I totally get it.

    When I tried running it messed up my weight loss. I think the key really is moderation during your weight loss phase.

    I was only interested in the workout, not the milk.
    I do think barbell stuff is great though.
    I do plan on going back to CF eventually any way, so I might just wait a bit and do that, dunno.
