My Goals:
Exercise a minimum of 3 days a week with cardio and strength training.

Daily reading to maintain abstinence and to learn more about myself and ability to change.

Personal Information:
I live in Northwest Illinois in a more rural area than the city or suburbs and absolutely love it. I've been married to my hubby for 16 years and have two dogs, both of which were rescues, named Finnegan and Elsie. I belong to OA and that has been life-changing in all aspects of my life. The group is the most accepting and welcoming people I have ever met in my life.

Other Information:
I'm a huge football and hockey fan, so I'm thrilled when autumn season rolls around. I also love to read and almost always have a book or magazine in my purse. I'm a pretty quiet person, but am learning to be more comfortable in my skin instead of trying to conform to others' expectations. I'm growing and changing and I love the peace and serenity that comes with that. Hard, painful work sometimes for sure, but worth the self-confidence and peace that comes from it.

Happy 4th of July! I hope all is good with you this summer! I'm loving our cooler temps this past week. My flowers are beautiful with all the rain we've gotten the last couple weeks. My son got married two weeks ago. We love his wife. My daughter is expecting our first grandchild in Oct. We're so excited for the baby's arrival! Take care and I hope to hear from you soon! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hope your new job is going well! I'm loving our beautiful fall weather. We're adding a new master bedroom and bath to our home. This weather is allowing lots of work getting done! I'm so excited to get it done. I ordered new furniture as ours was my in-laws first bedroom furniture. It is over 60 yrs. old. Not one thing is wrong with it, but it just looks so old. Furniture is not made as good these days! I've been cleaning like crazy. I have taken 4 van loads to Goodwill and took a pick-up truck full of junk to the dump. I've lost 3Ibs. from all my work cleaning! Since I only have one little boy to watch I'm getting lots done during his nap time! I hope your having some weight loss success! Have a great day Shannon! emoticon emoticon
