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 am doing the happy dance this very second. Wonder how many calories the Happy Dance burns? *giggles* ;) Have you tried out your treadmill yet? It is so nice to be able to walk in the privacy of your own home. I recommend watching a comedy when you walk. It makes it easier. What do you make with Polymer clay? I tried to paste a pic of snoopy doing the happy dance for you...but apparently it won't allow images in this message box. Oh well...
