    Proximal means closer to the base of the limb. The scapula, sternum, and clavicle are all on the thorax. The radius is one of two bones between your elbow and wrist.

    my textbook definition is "towards the point of attachment of the limb to the body" but isnt the humerus have 2 point of attachments? the scapula and the radius

    Proximal and distal are relative terms used to compare two anatomical things. Your shoulder is proximal to your elbow, but your elbow is proximal to your wrist.
