Just reached my goal!! Before and after pictures

Hi Guys,

When I started CrossFit in September 2009 I was out of shape, overweight, to high b/p and didn't feel good at all!

My B/W then was around 280#(127kgs)

When I started CrossFit I set myself the goal to reach BW of 220#(100kgs) before the end of April 2010

This weekend is when I reached my goal. Now I'm just going to keep eating healthy, do alot of CrossFit and don't worry about weight/looks but rather worry about my performance. Now I just want to be as good as I can get!

Here is a picture I made in February. This is kind of a before and "in the middle" picture. Before picture taken last summer and "after" picture taken 10th of February.

And here is a picture from today. Reached my goal 219#(99.5kg)!! YAYY. I just love CrossFit and look forward to get better and better with time.

Nice work, Arni!

I think your next goal should be performance based: a certain fran, 5k, grace, helen, murph or whatever time. Perhaps a CrossFit Total goal.

And speaking of performance: how has your performance been as you have drop all that useless flab?

Keep it up and keep us posted on your continued progress!

It's just crazy how much my performance has changed in such a short time. I went from not being able to do 5-10 pull ups/air squats/push ups to doing Murph/Fran/Kelly etc RX'd in 4-5 months maybe.

Before I started I had never lifted weights in my life and after 6 months my CrossFit total was 914#.

So my new goals will definitely be performanced based from now on.
