Hey! Thanks for visiting my page today! My name is Shannon, and I'm a 40something wife and mom in West Virginia. I have three gorgeous daughters, ages 25, 23, and 15!

Positive words, prayers, and well meaning kicks in the butt are all welcome! ;-)

I'm here because I have just had enough. I have been heavy all my life, and now I've been feeling so uncomfortable in my own skin that it's not funny. I've also been feeling afraid of having a heart attack, which is not ...
Hey! Thanks for visiting my page today! My name is Shannon, and I'm a 40something wife and mom in West Virginia. I have three gorgeous daughters, ages 25, 23, and 15!

I'm here because I have just had enough. I have been heavy all my life, and now I've been feeling so uncomfortable in my own skin that it's not funny. I've also been feeling afraid of having a heart attack, which is not advisable for a 40something woman. Not to mention, I feel so totally unattractive.

I have tried Weight Watchers and it worked, but I fell off the wagon quite a few months ago. So, here I am, AGAIN. I so hope using this site and making some friends here will help me stick to it better.

One thing I need to keep reminding myself is that food does not kill pain. Neither emotional or physical. I deal with chronic back and joint pain on a daily basis, but some days are really bad, and I find myself trying to ease the pain with food. Of course, it doesn't work. You'd think my brain would have caught on to this by now, but it's kinda slow. LOL

I love arts and crafts, and especially Art Dolls! Also, I'm very fond of gardening. I do wish our soil were better, though. It's mostly clay, so we really have to add a lot to it to make it usable. Last year, I started a few Square Foot Gardens, and love it! Mel's Mix makes all the difference! You can find links to the books on my site, if you're interested in learning about it or trying it!

If you would like to add me to your Facebook friends, please leave me a note when you send the invite and tell me you're from Sparkpeople, so I can add you to the right list!

Well, thanks for stopping by my page, and I hope you have a wonderful day!

emoticon for commenting on my Blog!
I just wanted to tell you, it's just little steps! I remember a short while ago, walking with my daughter, she like, "Mom lets jog! I'm like no way, She says, "just bounce up and down a little on your feet when your walking!"
I could NOT do it! I "RUN" now, but it's not a full fledged run! I have learned to take her advice an d just, "bounce" on my feet a little. That is why my time is still a little slo. But, it seems to be getting better every time! PRAISE GOD for that!
So anwyaz, I just wanted to share that. If I can do it, emoticon

Blessings.

I think your the sweetest gal. I seen you on someone else's page. I just had to say. Your so much like Elizabeth Taylor when she was a young actress. So you sure do not have to belittle yourself. My I would of not taken you for that age you say in your page folio. you look so young in your face of your profile.


I wish you the best on your weight journey.

emoticon I just wanted to tell you. I love your hair also. I will add you.

Have a nice weekend.
