What's This Blogging You Speak Of?

Blogging? Hmmmm, I'm not sure that I am up for pouring out details of my personal life to total and complete strangers on the internet but at the same time I am starting a new journey in my life and I need to be held accountable. This seems like a good way to do it.
Introduction.. My name is Crystal. I am a mother to two wonderful boys (3 years and 10 weeks). I can promise that you will hear more about them at a later date. I am engaged to my exhusband; that story is a long one and can be saved for another post as well. I recently enrolled at BVU and I plan to continue my education and finish my bachelors degree--my education kind of took a back burner to my children and I have just been working on it slowly. Now I plan to get back in full swing and in 20 months I will have a Bachelor of Arts, a Bachelor in Human Services, and a Bachelor in Psychology. Go me, right?!
Now....the dreaded point to this whole thing. After gaining WAY TOO MUCH weight with my first pregnancy (65 lbs) in 2009 and not doing much to lose that afterwards, I was back to 200 lbs before I got pregnant with my second child last October. I did my best to keep off the extra weight and did well for the most part; I think being extremely sick with morning sickness and H-Pylori (a stomach bacteria) may have aided little weight gain and I topped out at 235.
Now I am on my journey to not only lose all the extra weight and get back to at least 150, but to also find the person that I use to be. I know this journey may be a long one and it is going to be rough at times, but I CAN and WILL do it!
