My name is Lauren and I am obese and I had a number of health issues due to that obesity. Since joining my crossfit affiliate in 2013 I've lost weight, I've rid myself of high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Even more amazing is that my A1C (I am type 2 diabetic) went from 12.1 to 6.7 and I was able to cut out nearly all of the medication I was on for all these issues. I compete because I can (I may be big, but I am tough! haha) and although I most likely won't ever be making it to regionals, I have this sport to thank for my good health.
