It's awesome to be Chrissy.
Left to right- Bones (Honky), Bastion, and Digit... my boys!
GIANTMICROBE is a SparkPeople Motivator!
My name is Chrissy. I'm 27 years old. When I was in high school, I weighed 270 pounds. When I graduated high school, I weighed 150 pounds.
I've kept most of it off, but I tend to yo-yo with 15-20 extra pounds because I love food so much. I'm also a stress-eater. So basically I eat when I'm happy AND when I'm sad.
I go to CrossFit Bel Air- the BEST box ever!!!!- and joining CrossFit was the best decision I ever made. Not just for my body, but for my mind as well, and the depression I frequently suffer from. CFBA is my happy place!!!
Finally started CrossFit after 2 years of wanting to- and I LOVE IT!
I also did home workouts for 2 years with Zuzana Light. She's amazing, highly recommend!!!!!
I lost 35 pounds using Weight Watchers points and that is the best way of tracking food for me.
YES, I have an enormous collection of Giant Microbes :)
I have 3 cats and they're my babies
I'm from western PA, currently living in Baltimore
Likes include: All manner of nerdy things, animals, cooking and baking, crafting, nail polish, and working out

Yeah, I've turned into a real kettlebell fanatic these past 2 months. It's been a great adjunct to weight lifting, and it loosens me up real nicely.
I decided to get a 35-lber to have at home to practice cleans, snatches, and Turkish Get-ups. There's a good array of 54 and 72 lbers at the gyms I go to. I try to swing a 54 lber for 100 swings at the gym and this past week, did 2 sets of 10 swings with a 72 lb KB!

That sounds like a no sugar diet I could do! Haha...I hear you on the REALLY good bread! Basically anything at Panera. Also, I would probably die if I couldn't eat fruit. Hope it's still going well!
