2011=New Journey for Shannon!

I don't know if anyone will read this or what, but I am pretty much going to use this going forward as a journal + beauty related stuff... 

As you may or may not know... in January 2011 I will be starting weight watchers. Let me give you a little background to who I am...

In HS I wasn't the SMALLEST girl...but I was NOT fat. I was average. I have very muscular thighs and calves... and so they were bigger, but not fat. I was in every sport so it helped keep the weight off. I graduated HS in 2004 and I've gained a lot of weight. I never thought I would get to the point where I need to do something drastically about it... until now. 

I'm at the point where I can't even stand looking at myself or pictures of me... 

I do however LOVE to get all dolled up with makeup and do my hair because it's like a temporary "fix" that makes me feel good. I have an amazing husband who tells me ALL the time I'm beautiful and what not... The thing that bothers me is that when we started dating in 2002 I was skinnier and smaller... and now here I am. 

So, I am going to start weight watchers in the first week of January, and also will be joining a gym. My husband got a new job and so he will be working different hours than me so this will help me cope with us not seeing each other M-TH of the week. 

I really want this blog as a spot to vent. I am only telling 3 people about me starting weight watchers. Younger sister, Husband and best friend. Reason being is I want people to notice the changes on their own, and not because they know i'm on weight watchers.

I am SO anxious to start this journey and very excited, scared, and all of the above. I don't want to fail... so hopefully with your kind words and encouragement I can make it through this.

Thanks everyone!

Hi Shannon,
How's it going? Just read your blog entry about starting WW. That is awesome! About ten years ago I also found myself with more weight than I wanted . I gradually lost the weight through changing my diet, and later added exercise ( I love Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds DVD's!) I still watch what I eat, and aim to exercise about five hours a week . I really like strength training, yoga, pilates, and quite a variety of workouts, all from my (extensive!) collection of DVD's.
Anyway, I just wanted to wish you the best, and hope that things are going well for you.
I enjoy your videos and blog.
