    Meghann-you look awesome! your numbers are super impressive over the course of the program. It’s funny b/c they are so different (in the way they’re moving, not the actual numbers) from mine. I actually think the YTWL move is one of my favorites! The body matrix is probably the most painful thing I’ve ever done. I literally cannot complete 2 sets without taking breaks during the jumping section of the lunges & squats, it feels like my legs are going to fall off. They are INTENSE! I’m excited to do my measurements and recap later this week of stage 3. Good luck with 4!

    Daaaang girl! I totally see it. And the quads and bootie are defined too..err, not that I’m looking at your arse ;-P

    Nice work! Seeing all this hard core exercise is getting me motivated for after-baby!

      Agreed, definitely see a lift in your butt and your quads look more toned too. Makes me want to re-start this program!

        Ditto. I can see it in your quads and booty too!

        Great job Meg!! :)

    I can definitely see a difference! You look great! Strength training used to be my favorite type of exercise but I’ve fallen off the wagon over the past couple of months. You’re inspiring me to get back on!

    Way to kick ass !! You look great! I’ve been following your posts on NWOLFW and I’m getting more and more tempted to pick up the book myself!

    Look at you taking off two inches from your waist! That is amazing. That alone makes me want to try this program post-baby. I can’t remember – did you say it’s best to be in a gym for NROLFW or can it be modified to do at home?

    At any rate, I do see a difference between your May pictures and your current ones – enough to encourage me to give strength training a try! Nice work!

    Yes. You can see the difference. Your stature it taller, too. More confident? ;)
    Keep up the great work!

    Meghann you look amazing! I am impressed with your results!!! You can see those abs FOR SURE! I notieced them in vacay pics, too. Way to go girl!

    I notice a difference between the start pictures, and the rest, but honestly I don’t notice a big difference between post-stage 1, stage 2, and stage 3 pics. The post stage 1 pics are taken from the most flaterring angle.

    You look good/fit in all of the pics. You should be proud of your body! :D

    OK, you’re making me want to do this program again. I wonder if I could start with Stage 2 or 3 rather than do Stage 1 again? Stage 1 is so long and so boring to me at this point, and when I restarted the program early in the summer, I stopped after Stage 1 because I was sick of it. But the Stage 3 moves sound really fun!

    What changes have you noticed since stopping HIM training? I am really interested to know!

    Meghann! I can totally see differences! I am 3/4 done with stage 2 and feel so much stronger and more defined that I did before I started! I am excited to see you this weekend!

    Thanks for your honesty and feedback on this program.. I have been trying to implement more weight training in my workouts lately.

    NROLW is what got me into lifting 4 years ago. I love it. YTWL is actually one of my fav exercises from the book. I wanted to warn you – the DB Prone Cuban Snatch in 4B? Is the L from YTWL :-)

    Even the smallest changes count! I think it’s a great idea to track your progress this way (through photos and measurements as well as weight). I might have to take that tip for myself!

    This post is really encouraging. I have been struggling with that last little bit of weight around my belly to come off and to see you get it down is really motivating!!

    Congratulations, Meghann!! You look great! Your reviews of this weight program are making NROLFW my next book store purchase. Realistically how many hours per day/week are you spending on this? I’d love to get started when I finish up my P90X cycle but work 2 jobs and worry I won’t have the time.

    Can I just say, you look TALLER! I was like “whoa, it looks like homegirl has grown a few inches!” lol Funny how that works. Very cool.

    • Meghann
      October 19, 2011

      It’s the camera angles. That’s the one thing I wish I would have been more consistent with. Also, posture?

      • Stephanie
        October 19, 2011

        Yeah, I think it’s the posture. You definitely look like you’re standing up straighter, which tends to make people look taller.

    Since I’ve started Crossit – we do a lot of Olympic Lifting – I have put on serious, serious musle. And yes, this has been reflected on the scale. I have gotten larger in area (biceps, back, traps, thighs) and also slimmer in certain areas (neck, hips, butt) … We all know muscle is 3 times SMALLER than fat. And that it’s 3 times denser. But it sucks when the scale goes up. It just sucks. I feel ya. But I’m loving your progress – and from one iron pumpin’ diva to another – YOU GO GIRL!

    You look amazing Meghann!! I can really see the results in the photos and though you haven’t lost all the weight, you’ve totally reshaped your body and that’s the beauty of strength training…and that’s why scales lie! ;)

    I have been a little nervous about losing my trainer when my gym buddy is too pregnant to work out and my trainer is too expensive for my lonesome. I think this will fit the bill. Now to dust the book off!

    Wow look at the results!!! My favorite part? The comparison of your expression between the first and the last. Especially the stomach ones! LOOK! :)

    Glad to be part of the group: NROLFW. I have been resistance training for years but never saw results like I have with this program. I have just started
    Stage 3 and love the body matrix. The first recovery day was a shock. Finally,
    I look in the mirror and see muscle definition whereas before, I had strength and overall fitness. I highly recommend this book, program and approach to gym workouts. If I can do this at 48, you can too. P.S. I actually did 6-7
    jumping lunges the first day. Wow!
