Hi, my name is Shannon. I have been overweight through most of my 20's and after having my beautiful little girl I want to shed the weight and be healthy again.

I was just recently diagnosed with Hashimoto's and Hypothyroidism. I suspected the Hypothyroidism part for a long time and was tested way back in 2006 and 2007 before the range was updated so I fell through the cracks. I am assuming that I can attribute at least a large part of my weight gain and weight loss struggles to this issue. Now that I am medicated and feeling better I can't wait to change my life for the better!

I am planning a vow renewal in 2015 which will basically be a wedding since hubby and I had a courthouse wedding. I can't wait to drop the weight and go dress shopping :D

Looking for SparkFriends! :) Add me!

    just read your comment on the page, past hurts/future happiness...the answer to your moms question about the bra...the enell sports bra!!!
    if you havent tried it, take it from a fellow big beautiful busty woman...they are the bomb!!!!
    a little costly at 64 to 66 dollars, but, theres a website, www.sportsclothesandmore. com...where you can purchase 2 for 61 each....and they are worth it
    its the only bra i ever wear, for not only workouts but daily use as well....
