What do you guys recommend? Do you do so many reps, or do you time yourself?

I'm using the 20 lb to start off with. I tried the 35 lb one, but it felt a little too uncomfortable for now. I'm going for weight loss at this point, so lighter weight with higher reps?
Are you doing this with someone who knows how to do it? Your description of a kettlebell swing (squat, lift) makes me think you're doing it wrong.

Also, light weight does not equal weight loss. Don't be afraid of heavy weight, but make sure you're doing your swings with good form.
