Tomorrow I weigh in for BLC 21, I'm nervous and I'm excited all at the same time. I can remember when I hit a plateau and how I felt defeated. How I then just gave in to all the temptations around me and, frankly said forget it, I will never be the size 5 I want to be.
Today I vow no matter how many set backs I have I won't beat myself up over them anymore. I will sleep it off, and get back up and start again.
I was 216 lbs at the beginning of November 2012 I am now 198, well hopefully 196 tomorrow. I will keep pushing, because this woman wants to be great!
Measure without the scale! This article was an eye opener.
We should already know from the years and years of"experience" not to always go by the scale. We need to learn to measure, not just our waist or our hips but our accomplishments, our healthy eating habits, do your clothes fit looser? How are your emotions? Do you view yourself different ?I know that I will hit a plateau, and I vow that I won't turn to a bag of chips to heal myself from feeling like I failed. Just because the scale has stopped moving doesn’t mean that you’ve hit a plateau in reaching your goals. Don’t give up out of frustration—all healthy behaviors are well worth the effort. Whether it’s better sleep at night or more energy throughout the day, start listening to the signs your body gives you that all of your hard work is paying off!

This is my biggest loser team from my gym! We were strong and unstoppable! I worked so hard to take off the weight! When I was on this team, I felt like nothing could stop me, I ran most of my 5K this year! What a blast and great accomplishments. This was the year I quit smoking, I ran better then every, I felt better then ever.
So WHY did I stop? That is the question, that is the mystery that everyone asks, when this happens. Why if something feels so amazing, why would you go back to laziness, and bow down to junk food? Why would you go back to smoking?
I now am on a new Journey with my vertical biggest loser team (Navy Ninjas), again I feel strong, unstoppable and wanted as a team mate. Through this journey I will reflect on my whys, my how comes, and your not good enoughs, then I will blog again at the end of BLC and have answers.
I will work hard towards my goal of 52lb in 52 weeks, but I will also work on the internal me this time around, to fix the broken me, from the inside out.

Crystal look at the person that you were at 15, 16 you were strong beautiful healthy you had your trials and tribulations but you made it thru. You can be that person again the strong and independent woman that you were. I know that life is rough becoming a mom at such a young age you made it through that and raised a beautiful daughter. Who is now almost 18 years old she's strong she's beautiful she's independent and you made her the person she is today. You taught her how to be strong just like you were. Take what you taught your own daughter and use it for yourself become the person you always wanted to be don't look back. Stay strong and healthy for the rest your life
