"How much weight have you lost?" OR "How much weight do you want to lose?"Puhleeze stop asking me how much weight I want to lose! If I learned one thing at CrossFit, I learned to look at more than just the numbers on the scale. Instead of focusing on the scale, I tend to focus more on increasing my strength, endurance, agility, speed, etc.
So, you wanna talk numbers? Instead of asking me how much weight I want to lose or lost, ask me the following:
- How much can you back squat? Answer: 100# 1oo may not seem like much, but it's 100 more than I thought I could back squat!
What's a back squat you ask?
- Ask me how much can I deadlift. Answer: 160# and probably more.
What's a deadlift you ask?
- Try asking me how many inches I whittled from my hips. The answer to that question my friends: 4!! Yes, 4 inches!!
- Ask me how many push-ups can I do. And I ain't talking about girl push-ups. Answer: 7
I must confess, my CrossFit experience, changed the way I look at the scale and sometime in the near future I plan to quit Weight Watchers:-(
During the CrossFit challenge I killed myself, by going above and beyond. Each week I weighed in at WW and each week I walked out disappointed. And after one breakdown to many, I decided to part ways with WW.
So, you wanna talk numbers? Leave me some of your impressive numbers, but leave the scale out of it.
