Well, you probably don't remember me because I started the last challenge but did not finish. I'm in it this time. :) You will be hearing plenty from me for the entire challenge.
I'm Danielle. Stephanie's husband and my husband grew up together in Colorado and Stephanie and I met in college. I live in Montana with my two cute kids and husband. I had a stroke last year at the age of 29 due to an artery tearing in my neck (cause of that tear is still unknown). I had another artery in my neck tear three months later (no stroke with that one). It has now been one year and I'm doing well. I gained a bunch of weight while I was on the "lay on the couch all day long for six months" restrictions (okay, it wasn't that bad of restrictions, but pretty close). I remember at the very beginning it was a huge accomplishment to walk down my porch stairs and a few feet on the sidewalk. Now I am running and trying to get back to a healthy weight.
Here's to a great 8 weeks!
