*hugs* Beth. Hope you can get rid of that cyst soon. Women don't bulk up like men because we lack huge amounts of testosterone. Learned that the other day on The Doctors.

I want to start strength training, and I do plan on it. But right now (and for the past 4 months... ugh...) I've got a ganglion cyst in my wrist that causes me pain, and I really don't want to aggravate it by lifting. :( I'm not sure what to do about that. I've tried convincing my friends that they should start strength training, but they unfortunately still believe that they'll get huge "gross" muscles if they do, no matter how often I tell them it's INCREDIBLY difficult for women to bulk up like men. *sigh* Stubborn. :P
