Thats my biggest struggle right now. Having no trouble adhering to my diet, but i definately need to make a few adjustments. Overall callories have been too low lately... weight is dropping too fast. At this pace, muscle will be lost too, and thats a no go! I also have to think about my workload. I'm a landscaper and my business is crazy right now! Lovin it, but i need to factor that in.

Thanks Cutty! Its taking me a while to get acustomed to the hook. My thumbs hurt right now. Lol. I'm determined to make it strong enough that i never have to worry with straps or mixed grip. It feels so much more smooth and natural to have both hands over. My thumbs just feel like they're being demolished every session. I have a nice thumb callus forming and they are loosing some sensitivity. Hopefully i'll get to the point where i can grip it and rip it with it...

Oh. And i have thick hands and short fingers too. I only get my middle finger to hook... some people get the first two or three fingers.
