14 months ago I was 30+ pounds heavier, weak, and lazy.

I saw this image and decided to change how I live and get my ass in gear for me, my wife, and most importantly my kids.



Fast forward to this last weekend. After a knee surgery, a change in lifestyle, and a loss of over 30 pounds. I completed a Tough Mudder and proved to myself that goal can be beaten and more importantly crushed! I got through every obstacle, and most were easy. I finished with my head held high and I have never been happier in my life. I truly am beaming.

If you are trying to make a change stick with it. Stay the course! Don't stop, ever. You will feel better, you will look better, you can do it.

I plan on racing in a Spartan Beast, Tough Mudder, and the Warrior Dash next spring. I plan to keep working every god damn day to hit my new goal.

Previous Goals: 175lbs / 225lb Bench (at 230) / 10 Pull ups (at 14) / Tough Mudder Finisher

New Goal: 170lbs / Sub 22min 5k / 270lb Bench / 20 pull ups / 5 muscle ups / Spartan Beast & Tough Mudder

My workouts make me feel a lot better, but I'm still weak and lazy.

Congrats on your success!

add in a squat and deadlift goal.

bench is for show, squats/deads are for go.

Just had knee surgery 5 month ago, so easing into heavy legs. I will set that goal in a few months when I have an idea
of what is possible.

Deadlifts shouldn't be much of an issue then. Then again, I'm no doc. And don't worry so much about body weight as physical appearance. Well done OP
