My name is Kristi Crosson, and I was obese. Yup, obese. I started this blog as a way to document my journey as my body is transformed from large to small. You see, in April 2011 I had a baby. On April Fool’s Day. I did a bad job of watching my weight during the pregnancy so I gained a whopping 80 pounds in 9 months. YIKES. To put this in perspective, I am 5’4″ – 5’5″ tallish, and weighed 194 pounds when I found out I was pregnant. I weighed around 274 when I gave birth. I managed to drop down to 225-235. This is where my journey started on this blog. The photos on top are me pregnant and me when I started this blog. The middle photo to the left is me and my sister in August 2013 (I am on the left weight is around 170). The bottom photo is me and my longtime friend when I weighed in at 145 (me on the right). I got down to 145 the summer of 2014 (WOOHOO), and then got pregnant with my beautiful little girl. I gained about 70 pounds or so again (SUPER BUMMER), and am ready to lose it again. So as a mom of a 4 year old boy, and almost 4 month old girl, I have some baby weight to lose again. My challenge is pacing myself so that I can still breastfeed my daughter. As of today, July 23, 2015, I weigh in at 186.
I am here to share my ups and downs. Tips I learn or re-learn, and my story. I love telling stories so here’s mine.
I had a goal of weighing 130 pounds by my 30th birthday. It’s July 2015, and I am now 33. But this hasn’t stopped my journey. I started with a goal in mind, and I will reach it. Come follow me as I share my journey and when you get a chance, share some of yours with me!
