5 Months of CrossFit, It's been life changing

I wanted to share my story with anyone that is new to CrossFit, or is thinking about starting CrossFit. I started a journal the day of my first WOD, August 23, 2012. I am amazed at how fast I see results. I weighted between 170-190 for the past 14 years. I could not stick with any workout for more than a week, until now. My life has changed in so many ways. Here's my story. I hope this inspires people to try CrossFit. (some of the stories are embarrassing, but truthful) I hope you enjoy reading my journey.

Outstanding. These are results of a Great Job: to force yourself to do that and to do WODs.

I still have a long ways to go, but you have to start somewhere. Thanks everyone for the encouragement. I hope others will start crossfit as well.
