Dear LeanChristine:

First of all, congratulations on winning the battle with the deer. It was probably an emotional time for you.

I'm glad you decided to come to Sparkpeople. I am here from a knee accident, and spent two months in a wheelchair. Since May, I have lost over 70 pounds. I did it by being really true to myself, eating only what fit in the parameters of a healthy lifestyle, doing exercise EVERY SINGLE DAY, and starting to learn to love myself.

This is a journey, not a diet. I hope you can find your way to the great journey I am on. It feels awesome, I am delighted with my progress...I'm not done.

Let me know if you need help with anything.

Spark on.

Oh NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! But I love your humor! Poor deer, must have been seriously depressed. (sorry) We're so glad you're here with us. You only fail when you fail to try again! Good luck!

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

Hello Twin Cities SPeeps. I was doing pretty well until a deer took his life with my car in May. After that, I think I gave up as I was so busy dealing with docs, insurance and car searches and other everyday life stuff. I've gained back most of the weight I lost. I'm on my feet at work everyday, but still can't seem to lose these pounds. My dietitian sent me here, so I feel I must try again. I have at least 60lbs. to lose.

Strive for excellence not perfection
