So, I am heavier than I have ever been in my life.. I am at 180 right now, amazed I just admitted that online. However, I unlike some people cannot blame my weight on kids. I gained all my weight during college when I would cook southern and Italian food for my college roomies. Yes, my name is Shannon and I am a lover of food, cooking food and cooking for others. I am sure I am the reason some of my college pals gained weight… I cooked a lot for them. Needless to say instead of the freshman 15, I gained the freshman 60. So, since being diagnosed as a type 2 diabetic, having the shit scared out of me by my endocrinologist about the side effects of the disease, I am embarking on a life change. There may be some other reason besides just loving to cook that has caused me to overeat and put my health at risk. So, through blogging daily or every other day about my crazy relationship with food, and about working out.. I hope to uncover the truth about how and why I chose to let myself go, so to speak, and share the struggle to regain my health with other people who are struggling with type 2 diabetes. I know that having type 2 diabetes can be a death sentence if I do not gain control over the disease sooner than later. So, here’s to a new way of life for me, a healthy one! I am going to post lots of pictures of what I look like now, and along the way to getting fit and healthy. Also on this website you can calculate your body fat percentage.
