I just wanted to post some of the success I'm having so far with crossfit. I've been working out about three to four times a week for a month now, using the WOD's as a guideline (most of the time I can't do everything on it), and it's definitely working!

I've lost a total of 6 lbs, but the real awesome is that I'm getting oh so much stronger. For example, I have to use the assisted pull up machine, and when I started, I had to offset myself at 115 lbs. I weighed 175 so I was really only lifting 60lbs of my body weight. Well, now I only have to offset myself by 85lbs. With my weight loss, I'm now lifting half of my body weight. I also started out using a 20lb bar and now I'm using a 40lb bar.

I know I'm nowhere near a lot of the seasoned crossfitters, but I'm pretty excited about getting stronger and healthier. I also love the fact that I'm losing mad inches around my waist. It's pretty incredible.

Just thought I'd share!

Great start. I love hearing stories about folks just getting started and seeing the gains. Just think of where you'll be in a year, 2 years etc.

Hey Fellow CrossFitters! Way to go Leah...I can totally relate to how you're feeling. I am a 28yr old female (5'4"-112lbs), and I started CrossFit training about 6 weeks ago. I have been dedicated to regular workouts (5-6 days per week of cardio and weight lifting…typical gym rat) for about 9 years, but I have never experienced anything like this! I can't believe the difference CrossFit has made in my life. I feel better and stronger than ever. I did my first CrossFit Total yesterday and scored 316, putting me in the Intermediate category. I couldn't believe it! Can't wait to see what I can get my body to do in the coming months and years! Thanks for letting me share my excitement and good luck to everyone else in their training.
