Shannon's plan to fight the flab!

For the first 18 years of my life, weight, nutrition and fitness were non-issues. College life was a great excuse to let myself go. After grad school I entered the real world and discovered that I couldn't use school as an excuse to eat poorly and lead a sedentary lifestyle anymore! With that, and some motivation, I discovered SP.

For the first 18 years of my life, weight, nutrition and fitness were non-issues. College life was a great excuse to let myself go.

With that, and some motivation, I discovered SP.

No pills, magic exercise machines, or fad diets are going to make me healthier - only good old-fashioned hard work, willpower and motivation from friends and family. I've been sparking since March 2007 and my plan has evolved several times. I've lost 20ish (I say 'ish' because I lose and regain from time to time) lbs and am somewhat in maintenance mode. I'd like to lose another 10. However, my shape is so much more important than a number on the scale. Losing inches in my problem areas of the belly and thighs are my main interest. Ditching the flabby arms would be great too!

Bar? Clown face? My nightmare has been realised! Still can't get over your super sexy self! And major congratulations on the move to Amarillo. You guys deserve all the best. You must be thrilled! There is a Christmas tree in the room I'm in right now with certain "Giddy-up" and pepper-with-cowboy-hat-on ornaments on it. That was fun explaining to the fella!
