Fat Slob to Open Competitor

This is my CF Open Profile: http://games.crossfit.com/athlete/19889

This is the fat old me, circa 2004: http://tinypic.com/r/wj6igw/5

(Both links are safe!!)

I lost a lot of weight from '04 to '07. I thought I was in shape until I started doing CF in 2007. On the first day I did the CFWU and had to stop halfway through so I didn't puke.

Thanks! Cortney you can do it. If I can do it anybody can do it!! Stay focused, stay strong, and shake off the haters that offer you cakes and pies when you're trying to eat right.

Man isnt this the truth. Why is it that 95% of people around you who could care less bout fitness wanna bring you down. And they dont even realize what they are doing. "Oh cmon one cupcake isnt gonna hurt." I think it makes them feel better if I lower my standards instead of them raising theirs. I like this one, "You laugh because you think Im different, I laugh because you guys are all the same."

BTW great job.

Re: Fat Slob to Open Competitor

Wow, Great work!!! That is very inspirational. I just started CF a few months a ago and I am amazed at how quickly by body has changed. When I started I could barely lift the bar and now I am snatch lifting 75lbs, and Deadlifting 135lbs. I couldn't do one push up and now I can knock out about 21 in a row before taking a break and cranking out some more. Not only am I stronger but at lost 2 inches in my belling and gained mass in my upper body. I can't wait to see where I am in a year!
