Hi, My name is Shannon

I am a work in progress!!! And let me tell you....I need a lot of work! I am determined to get this weight gone. So....I am going to put my head up and my feet down and get er' done. HERE I GO!!! Seems to be really hard to get the weight off, I keep going the wrong direction. I CAN DO THIS!!!

I love anything sweet especially chocolate and ice cream. I am having a really hard time getting control over all of those sweet teeth getting in my way. Can we say BIG struggle! I need to develop those will power skills that I hear so much about, is it possible?

I want to lose weight for my health; health of my knees, my back, my hips and my mind, not to mention the rest of me. I am doing this for myself; HECK! we all need to be selfish once in a while, don't we?


10 reasons I want to lose this weight

1. Because I AM WORTH IT!!!
2. Keep cholesterol in control without medication
3. To look and feel pretty to both my hubby and myself
4. To no longer be in so much pain; knees, back, ankles, hips
5. To feel comfortable in my own body
6. To have CONTROL over my eating
7. To get back into my smaller clothes that have been sitting in my closet for way to long.
8. To be an inspiration to others.
9. To be able to take care of others without feeling exhausted.
10. General Health.


Knuckle down. Buckle down. Do it! Do it! Do it!

    As we are heading into Autumn & the leaves slowly change color. Let it remind us that change can be so beautiful. Just like the leaves it takes time & is a slow process in changing colors. But oh so beautiful a process it is. Remember turning a leaf over takes time too. Changing in many different aspects of a healthy, happy lifestyle to takes time & patience. But like the leaves changing color, changing a lifestyle is also the making of a beautiful life, changing the color of your leaf to be a better you. emoticon Happy September emoticon emoticon & emoticon emoticon

    Thank you Shannon for the goodie! I normally wear pull on stretch demin jeans and now I can finally get them on and comfortably too. I still have to wear my knit pants that I don't like at all. When you sit down they just don't slide over and you are always sitting on the first leg that you went in on to sit down if that makes sense? LOL

    Love you my friend.

    I am so very sorry to hear about your Daddy's diagnosis. I am keeping all of your family in my thoughts and prayers. Keep me posted on what they find out with his other tests.
