It's awesome to be Chrissy.

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

"Bathed in sweat, bent over and gasping for breath, Lungs burning, the athlete might have wondered aloud if this is what death must feel like. In time, this same athlete will surely realize the opposite. Indeed, this is what life feels like."

Thanks for the advice on the jumping ropes. I did jump some more today, finding it rather fun. A good addition to my routine. I'm glad you stopped by my page.
