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.

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! :)
