Hey everyone! My name is Crystal.

I've struggled with my weight as long as I can remember. I came home from school when I was 11, in the 6th grade and I cried to my grandma..they had weighed me in gym class, I was 180 pounds.

With Sparkpeople, last year I was able to lose 52 pounds, from 206 to 154. Unfortunately I've gained some weight back but I'm going to get back on track. I'm not meant to be chunky and unhappy with myself!

In 2009 I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. My husband and I have been TTC for almost 3 years with and without fertility drugs. While weight loss as helped in some aspects, still no pregnancy. Just like my weight loss, I'm not giving up!!

My Goals:
I have not set a "due date" to lose this weight, actually I had never even thought of it until I joined this site. I just want to be healthy and happy in my own skin..thats my goal!
206 lbs to 140 lbs..I'm almost there!

My Program:
I'm following a Low carb diet. The first 6 weeks I joined a medical weight loss program, it gets expensive. I missed going to 2 appointments and the weight keept coming off. So I thought, Why waste my money.. I'm doing it on my own!

I workout 5 - 6 days a week, mostly treadmill. I do have 2 workout videos that I occasionally use to change things up. I also have Zumba for Wii which is very fun and challenging

Personal Information:
I'm married to the best man alive, Jake. We live in Florida..and we have 2 kittybabies (Emmie & Tiger)

Other Information:
For anyone reading:

**Don't ever give up! Keep truckin' along and do this for yourself!!!**
