Grow your mind to shrink your body!

February 2013: I am in ONEderland now! I am feeling so much happier and healthier now that all of my healthful choices have become habit. I am thinking more positively, eating healthy foods, and my attitude about life in general has improved drastically. I still have about 50 pounds before I'm at my overall goal... but I'm fine taking it slowly and know my changes are life long.

I am a single mom who is a full time student. I have let food become something more in my life than it ...

I am a single mom who is a full time student. I have let food become something more in my life than it needs to be, and it's time to change that.
I have lost weight before (I lost 60 pounds after I gave birth) so I know I can do it.
I am ready for a life change, not just a diet.



November 2012:
I am 50 pounds down, but at a plateau. Yikes. But because I have been making life changes instead of diet changes, I am okay with it (well, moreso than ever before!). I am going to be healthier in the long run! Yay for SparkPeople for being the fantastic resource it is so that I can go read articles or member blogs whenever I feel myself doubting my life change. Every day I am more sure I've made the right decision.

My Goals:
To improve my mind, health and body.

My ultimate goals are:
- Weigh 150 pounds and maintain (Down 70 pounds from 275-205 as of 1/23/13)
- Have a positive attitude (this goal is going well)
- Maintain healthy eating and exercise habits

My Program:
I track all of what I eat and all the exercise I do on my tracker.
I keep up with SparkTeams and find they offer a ton of support!
I have made a point to make good decisions in my food- especially when eating out.
I am eating fruits and veggies daily and drinking plenty of water.
Most of all, I don't deprive myself. I don't limit what I eat, only the portions, and I make sure I'm satisfied before taking a bite of anything sweet so that I will stop after I've eaten my portion!

Personal Information:
My name is Shannon, I am 5'7" (I know that's silly, but I always wonder how tall people are when looking at their pictures on here haha), I am a single mom, and a pre-med Biotech major.

Other Information:
Change your mind to change your body!

Hey there. Happy Monday. I am glad you are feeling a bit less bloated & are having less problems! That is always a plus even if the scale doesn't show a difference!
