Time to retire the old thread from 5 years back and come up with new goals. https://weight-loss.fitness.com/threads/weight-loss-journey-for-feeling-gooder.52971/ I've bounced around a lot over the past 5 years with periods of focus and activity mixed with many less than productive periods. I've completed two half marathons spent periods cycling, swimming, obstacle course racing, completed a mini triathlon, played recreational basketball and lots of time doing little to no physical activity. As a result I find myself starting the year at 270.5 lbs which is between my heaviest at 290+ and lightest in recent memory of just under 230lbs. Too much of my previous focus was on the number on the scale and while that is a good indicator to track a trend over time it's far from the most important aspect of getting to a point of real fitness. Here is a list of my goals for 2018. 1. Complete six introductory sessions for Crossfit to get a handle on proper technique and form. 2. Complete 1 pull-up unassisted 3. Complete a 10k run 4. <Insert realistic deadlift, back squat, clean and jerk targets after intro sessions> 5. Complete set of 5 pull-ups unassisted 6. Execute set of 10 handstand push-ups from box 7. Get under 30% body fat 8. Execute one handstand push-up against a wall 9. Complete the <insert name> crossfit workout 10. Complete another half marathon I'm intentionally leaving out any weight specific goals however in order to achieve many of these, my current weight will need to change. Once I know enough to clarify these goals I'll update the list and once I achieve 5 out of 10 I'll add 5 new ones and keep going. Tomorrow is intro session #1.
