Good luck with it but if your goal is weight loss then I'll recommend against doing crunches you'll be much better off doing hiit workouts or Cardio 30 min early in the day on empty stomach. Crunches burn little calories and starts developing your abs long before you'll be able to see them and as they're basically muscles so they'll actually make you weigh more do them when you are at the muffin top stage. Hope this helps :) stay motivated

I agree with Raja, to lose weight by doing exercise you need to sweat. 20 crunches isn't going to make any difference at all weight-wise.

No point in doing crunches if you want to lose weight. Try butt kicks and high knees everyday instead.
