    Congrats! I am terrified of weights, but you are taking these challenges on with such ease it seems. Can’t believe you are almost finished. Any ideas what you’ll do next?

    You’re doing great! Just out of curiosity, do you measure first thing in the morning and before you eat/drink anything? Same goes for your weight (although I know you don’t talk much about that). Thanks!

      I usually measure between breakfast and lunch. I don’t really step on the scale enough to have a consistent schedule – the last time I was on a scale was at the doctor’s office in January.

    Great transformation! You definitely rocked that bridesmaid dress.

    Do you think the weight loss is because of NROWL or because of dietary changes?

    i have no doubt that you’ll rock a pullup soon. i can’t even imagine. watching you work towards something makes it easier to put the effort in to conquer headstand and crow in my yoga practice. one of these days. you looked beautiful at your brother’s wedding.

    You look so great, Meghann!! I love the cut of your bridesmaid dress.
    You have really inspired me to try this program. I have always been a little afraid of going to the weight lifting side of the gym for anything other than free weights, but it’s really time to face my fears πŸ™‚

    You really lost significant inches from your waist since starting. Do you credit it to NROWL, diet, or a combination of both? I’d really like to shed a few inches from my stomach. Any tips?

    • Meghann

      I think it was a combination. Changes in diet helped shed the inches, while NROLFW helped tone it up.

    I admire the ability to stick with an exercise program, especially one this long. Seeing the gains you have made makes me want to work with weights, something I’ve never done before because I didn’t care to.

    Girl. Do you realize your waist went from 31 in. to 27 in.!? YOU ARE AWESOME! Weights are where it’s at!

    You look great! I’ve done a few of the workouts but am working up the courage to start ( I feel a little uncomfortable in the weight room). Could I possibly email you questions I have? Especially things about cable sets (I have no idea what I am doing, what weight to start at…etc…I usually just kind of wing it!)

    Love you in that dress! Reminds me of our dresses in my brother’s wedding in August. πŸ™‚

      Hi Jess! Don’t feel uncomfortable in the weight room! There is no reason to be. Unfortunately I am not an expert, so if you have questions regarding the equipment, I suggest asking one of the attendants at your gym – they are great for showing you how to properly use the equipment and I promise they are just there to help, not judge – it’s their job after all! Good luck!

    Oooo. I need to try this. I tried doing a pull-up at the gym. Ya right. I don’t think I budged an inch. LOL. Underhand-Grip Lat Pulldowns make perfect sense. Okay, will need to hoard machine tomorrow (tonight is abs of steel workout).

    Great job on your workout!

    I hope this isn’t creepy, but I was totally going to comment on how good your arms/shoulders look when you posted the wedding photos. Looks like the plan is working—I’m thinking of buying it for myself to work on after I run this half marathon I’m training for—you know, one training plan to another!

    Yes, I totally noticed yesterday in all of your bro’s wedding photos that your arms were rockin! It’s crazy how much of a difference weight lifting paired with cardio can make. Nice work, Meghann!

    You rocked your dress! Your shoulders and arms look more defined for sure. I hope this series inspires more women to pick up the heavy weights at the gym.

    Btw, it’s awesome your Mom was inspired to start NROLW!

    I think it’s great that you’re doing an honest review of this program with both measurements, photos, and your own thoughts/impressions. I would live to see more bloggers share these types of posts. If you know of other similar reviews I’d love to hear of them.

    Looking at your photos is a total inspiration! The gym that I go to is owned by Alwyn Cosgrove and his wife, Rachel. When I was following my workout plan designed by them I lost two pant sizes in 8 weeks. It’s the motivation that’s killing me, but your awesome progress is definitely helping!
