Deanna's Page

Hi! My name is Deanna, and I live in Michigan. I'm a vegetarian, a graduate (doctoral) student, a computer geek, a knitter, and an avid reader.

In 2009, I lost 25 pounds, mostly due to SP. Unfortunately, I backslid quite a bit during the first half of 2010. Stress from my wedding, combined with the stress of starting graduate school, proved to be too much for my newfound healthy habits.

Hi! My name is Deanna, and I live in Michigan. I'm a vegetarian, a graduate (doctoral) student, a computer geek, a knitter, and an avid reader.

In 2009, I lost 25 pounds, mostly due to SP. Unfortunately, I backslid quite a bit during the first half of 2010. Stress from my wedding, combined with the stress of starting graduate school, proved to be too much for my newfound healthy habits. I recommitted to SP in 2011, but due to some health issues I had to really cut back on my physical activities. Despite the obstacles in 2011, I managed to finish my MSIS (woo hoo!), and also managed to not regain all of the weight I'd lost before my POTS diagnosis.

However, since October 2013, when I was briefly in the hospital for POTS-related issues, I have regained almost all of the weight I'd lost. As disheartening as that is, I know that I can't give up. I will lose the weight, and I will begin living a healthier lifestyle.

My Goals:
In 2014, I'm adopting the tortoise-y goal of dropping half a pound a week.

Overall, though, I'm just trying to be a healthier me. :)

My Program:
Mostly thanks to SP, I've developed some really good eating habits. I'm still trying to find a good exercise plan, though. One which will help me become fitter without overtaxing my body.

Other Information:
I'm always looking for new books to read - please recommend your favorites! :)

Thanks for the Valentine! I hope you're enjoying this beautiful sunny day. It's gorgeous in the Midwest right now, but we're expecting 3 to 7 inches of snow tomorrow - on top of the tons we already have. I sure am ready for Spring! emoticon
