Lots of excuses later

Hi, I am Shannon. I am a stay at home mom and an at home medical transcriptionist. When I met my husband 12 years ago I was a size 2, and now a lot of excuses later I am a size 18, and unfortunately I can't use the excuse because I had kids (I actually lost weight when I was pregnant). My mom introduced me to Spark and now here I am actually starting to do something about my self esteem and my backside. I would love to find some friends that can help keep me moving.. :)

Update 03/2013- I have now met numerous goals that I had when I started here in 2010 including I have now completed 21 half marathons since March 2011 and I have also completed 2 full marathons.

I am constantly looking at different ways to challenge myself and ways to add fun to my work outs. I am in the best place of my life- not at my fitness goals yet- but honestly could care less as I am living a life that I never thought I would have had 2 years ago.

Your comment on my blog: "I quit weighing myself other than about once a year when I go to the doctor -- since I started running 2 years ago I have lost less than 4 pounds total but I am down 5 clothing sizes... who cares about that number on the box... I would rather see the number on the tag in my jeans :)"

Amazing!!! This is perhaps the best thought yet. I am considering putting my scale awhile for awhile because of it. Thank you!!!

I can't believe you have run 14 half marathons. That is so cool. How was it? You should be really proud of yourself you're doing awesome.
