Courtney is a contestant on Biggest Loser 11! See her profile: Biggest Loser Courtney Crozier
Courtney Crozier says she’s never been thin, but for the first time in her life, she’s on her way there. Just nine months ago Courtney, a 21-year-old psychology student from Valparaiso, Indiana, weighed 422 pounds. Today, she proudly shares that she’s lost 121 pounds, for a current weight of about 301. “I’m not sure where I want to be,” says Courtney in regards to a final weight loss goal. “I know I want to feel good. I don’t want to put a number on it.” The passion, drive and commitment she has for her health, it’s certain she’ll get there.
“I have always been the happy, fun loving girl, no matter what size I was. But after losing over 100 pounds, I am SOOOO much happier and more confident than I have ever been in my whole life. I can’t even imagine how I’m going to feel or how amazing life is going to be when I get to my goal weight!”
Her story is somewhat different than others. “I was so out of touch with my body and myself,” says Courtney, admitting that it was a bad place to be, especially at such a young age. She says the irony of her situation is that her father runs, and she works at full-time, a Dairy Queen, while her mother is the general manager of a health club. There used to be a lot of DQ food in her diet, but not anymore.
The big change came for Courtney, an avid Biggest Loser fan, when she reached out to a season seven contestant via Facebook. The contestant offered her a ticket to the live finale, and Courtney was “overjoyed” at the opportunity. (more…)
