I've been a member of Sparkpeople since I was a teenager. I used SparkTeens back then, but now after I've lost nearly 100 pounds through none healthy ways I'm getting ready to actually lose the rest of my 90 pounds the HEALTHY way.

I recently had a major knee surgery and I was on crutches for 9 weeks then I was on a cane for 3 weeks, and that brings us to now. I'm still using the cane, but I've finished my 12 weeks of Physical Therapy. I'm hoping to use my new knee mobility to help me with things I've never been able to do. Seeing as the problem with my knee was preventing me from doing many many things.

**EDIT - July 15th, 20015***
Well, after two more knee surgeries I gained everything but 15 pounds back.

I've been working the last two months to lose weight and I'm more committed than I've ever been, but I let my gym membership laps and my 16 pound weight loss turned into a 7 pound weight loss.

Here's to more natural foods and more weight loss! Goal is to lose 20 pounds by the time my cousin gets married on August 1st. I'll settle for 16 though. Just to get back to where I was.

Personal Information:
I live in northern Minnesota in the region that's made the national news in the last two years. The previous year was from the flooding we had and this year was from the 50 inches of snow we had in 2 days. Yes that's the city I live in. I'm sick of snow now! LOL

Other Information:
I'm a 6 foot tall woman who's been on this weight loss journey my entire life. One day I will get there. I shall never lose faith nor hope :)

    Hi there! In Canada we can't get paid for blood, plasma, etc. But if you can get paid for it, go for it, for sure! In our country there is always a shortage of donors so I really am excited about it. It's really easy, easier than I ever thought so rest up, get healthy and definitely do it!
