Hey! Thanks for visiting my page today! My name is Shannon, and I'm a 50 year old wife, mama, and grandma in West Virginia. I have three gorgeous daughters and 6 grandkids! **Update** 2-16-2019 I just started the Ketogenic / keto diet! It's been a little tricky keeping my carbs low enough, and protein high enough, but I'll get there! I'm very excited to finally see results, because nothing I've tried before ever worked very well. ** 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. 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 and acrylic painting! 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!

    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

    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.
