My name is Shannon. I really hate the way I look so I'm wanting to change that.I just had a baby 1 year ago and although I didn't gain much weight, (plus I lost it all after I had him), it was hard on me because I had a high risk pregnancy with being morbidly obese and having high blood pressure. I had to go to the doctors every 2 weeks from the start of my pregnancy then every week once I was closer towards the end. I also had to have 2 nsts a week. It just made my pregnancy difficult and I really want to lose weight so I NEVER have to go through that again. I've been on Spark People for about 9 years now but I haven't really used it too much. Now since I'm really wanting to lose weight I'm using it to help me out. I want to lose a total of 180 pounds and right now I'm at about 318. I tried dieting before and I lost weight to where I thought I looked decent. But I went back to my old habits and I gained 80 pounds within three years. I need to stop what I am doing and lose weight before I can gain anymore! This will be hard but I am willing to just do it so I can lose weight and not only that become healthier. I'm looking for friends!!!! I want to exchange thoughts and helpful advice. I definitely NEED motivation so please add me! So if you want to be my friend just add me and message me. Bye for now, Shannon

    Hey kiddo I'm glad to see you decided to come back to spark people along side your big sis! We can do this together. I know it's very hard and we will have temptations all the time food is just so GOOD. And when it's that good it's BAD! We will just have to check on each other and be there for support so I'm here if you need me. And I know you will be there for me! Good luck love!

    The secret to happiness is not in doing what one likes to do, but in liking what one has to do.
