Hi, my name is Shannon, and I'm a 37 year old wife, mother, sister, daughter, and aunt. I've always been fairly fit, and have maintained a good diet, but somehow over the last 3 years, I've slowly gained weight, and started to sag. :( I'm trying to lose about 30 pounds, and re-gain the energy I once had. Wish me luck!

Update August 10, 2011
I've met my goal of losing 30 pounds, and now I'm working on the last 5. I completed my first triathlon on August 7th, and it was a wonderful experience! I can't wait to do my next one :)

Update October 9, 2012
I had met and maintained my goal weight for a time, and then the planning of my wedding aided me in losing focus. I've created some healthy habits, so the stress wasn't tragic, but I'm now 7 lbs over my goal weight, and I'm not in nearly as fit as I was. The wedding is over, and was wonderful! I think I rocked the dress even with the extra weight :)

Update January 13, 2013
I'm back to the maintenance stage, and I will be one of the 5% who keep it off. I was going hard core to the gym and pumping a lot of iron, but have decided for my own sanity to throttle it back. I have a very healthy diet, and will continue to be active, just with the outdoors and my family rather than surrounded by four walls.

    saw this on someone's page & thought it was hilarious so am sharing it with you ~
    I don't know why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day.
    When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon.

    according to your Status Update of 4 days ago "the wheels have fallen off"

    ummm ..... what does that mean & would you like to share what's going on? I probably don't have any advice to offer *but* I do make a good listener /reader.

    hope your week is off to a good start! Marie

    Thank you for your comment on my accountability blog. I think I'll try to do that more often.

    Hope you're having a great weekend.
