    Did you just bring the book with you? I think I might get a couple training sessions just to make sure my form is right to start off with and find my way around. I just have to face my fears I think! I challenged myself this month and went to a group fitness class which TERRIFIES ME. I know I can do it - I just have to start!

    I bought the Kindle edition and downloaded it to my smart phone. I also watched some of the exercises on YouTube if I was super confused with form during the reading.

    Fabulous Work! Yet another example of the benefits of weight training. I wish more women would bite the bullet and go lift heavy stuff. It doesn't make them look like guys, it makes them look hot. :wink: Kudos!

    Holy moley! I LOVE what resistance training does for people, especially the ladies! What only a 4 lb. difference but a whole lotta muscle tone. Ridiculous... nice job!

    More push for me to start NROL4W-- you look great! I'm also at about my goal weight, but I'd love to work on body composition now.

    this is the first thing I noticed too....
    SO GREAT! ...you look strong and fit... and balanced.
    nice work!

    YYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!! :love: :flowerforyou: :love: :flowerforyou: :love:

    What I think is just so freaking incredible about your before and afters is the difference in your spine! It just further shows the benefits of heavy lifting! Your body is so much stronger it can better hold you up right. And that's true for everyone - just more apparent with someone with a curved spine! I have twisted hips and have always suffered because of it - until LIFTING entered my life. Your pics are truly worth a thousand words girl!

    SO PROUD OF YOU!

    You are so right! I still have "bad" days but I'm pain-free more like 80% of the time now, whereas at my highest weight I was IN PAIN 80-90% of my time! Not to mention the improvement in my posture, which I didn't even notice until you pointed out :-)
