I'm Savannah, a 23 year old, cat loving, coffee chugging, veggie eating, mentally and physically ill girl just trying to thrive and enable others to do the same.

I began my health journey at 260 pounds in August of 2013 when I decided to finally become the hero of my own story. I lost 80 pounds over the next 2 years by making fitness and good nutrition part of my lifestyle. I became a running and hiking enthusiast and felt better than ever before.

In November of 2015, I was in a car accident that marked the beginning of a six month steady decline in my physical health. The accident resulted in damage to my lower spine that causes daily pain, stiffness, and decreased mobility. In addition, the stress of the incident triggered an underlying chronic illness which has yet to be diagnosed. The top contenders are currently Lupus, EDS, and/or chronic Lyme disease.

I've gained 20 pounds back since getting sick, but I have nobody to blame but myself for that. I became deeply depressed when I could no longer workout like I was used to, and I gave up on eating well. But I know that the way I can help myself the most is to treat my body with care and keep it as healthy as possible. I also know that increased muscle and decreased weight will help my joints, so I am again committed to doing as much as I can to lose the last 50 pounds and be healthy in every way I can.

    You are awesome and an inspiration to me. Thank you for reintroducing me to Spark again, even though I was slow about getting back to it. Everything in its own time, I guess. emoticon
