Gearing up!

So it's the night before the big day, the day that is the very first day that will change my life. I want this weight loss blog to be public, I want people to see it, I want to be held accountable for my dieting actions. I have tried to do it all silently but you know what? That does not work!

See, you need the support of friends and family or else it's a cold dark lonely road and that is why I fail every single time. So that is why I am asking you..yes you sitting there reading this to PLEASE help me as I go at this flab busting get me skinny healthy lifestyle!

I am asking you to cheer me on, yell at me, throw at me some motivational speeches, whatever it takes to help me lose this weight.I am tired of having no energy, one day I can go go go, the next I am a couch potato..well couch potato no more!! OK?? Can I count on you to help me through this? That's what I thought and I thank you! :)

So I have to throw this out there because I want to brag on a wonderful group of gals( HCPKP ) who are the best! We are all going to do this weight loss "challenge" together. We are mom's who want to get fit for our families and stay that way. So I am counting on you girls, you give me a boost I will give one right back at ya! ( oh, HCPKP = Henry County Pre K Playgroup )

To my family...I know there are some of you out there that is going through the same thing, this is for you to, I want you on my team as well. I love you guys and we all want to be around for a long long time :)


  1. I am so excited about this weight loss challenge. To me it's not even about the challenge, it's about being healthy and feeling good about myself. I have tried to do this alone before as well and you're right IT DOES NOT WORK!!! I am so glad to have met such an awesome group of ladies to do this with. I love you girls!!! I know that you are going to do great Shawna. I had to walk so much at school today and I feel so great knowing that I am off to a good start. I had a fat free yogurt and bottled water for breakfast and a granola bar with a coke zero for a snack. WooHoo!!! .I want some chocolate so bad right now. I'm not giving in though. It takes 21 days to break a bad habit and that's what I am telling myself about chocolate. Go Shawna! Go Shawna! Love ya girl, ~Jeannie

  2. Well, Here we go, that is better, My sister Sherry and I are really trying to lose, this yr, It has nothing to do with the New Year just a new way of life and eating.. (We are struggling for our life, and health.) So we are all in the same struggle, I also know Tawnya has been wanting to shed a few lbs. too, So let stick together.. Love ya, Aunt Donna

The hardest thing I ever did was take care of myself. I lost 127 pounds 2 years ago and gained most of it back. But I did it without surgery...I walked..ate right..and keep a good support group!
