SEE MY TRANSFORMATION ON MY PAGE, ITS ALSO MY DISPLAY PICTURE.
Hello my name is Shannon.
As. Child I was average weight, as a teen I played every sport I could I was very thin n tone. When I was 17 I got sick with a heart condition. My doctor told me I couldn't play sports anymore n working out had to be light. My heart dropped as he uttered this sentence .
I tried to still do it all, I didn't. Believe him. He wasn't lyeing though my heart rate would get to high n I would have to stop before I got sick or passed out.
My condition was rare called dysautonomia. I had to take steroids which didn't help my weight cause.
It was difficult going from thin n active to watching in the sidelines.
What felt like forever about a 2 years go I would have been 21, I started working out again, n noticed I wasn't as sick as I used to be.
I ended up in about a year span going from 220lbs- 125 lbs.
I NEVER thought it could be done.
Cardio was what I did to lose a lot of my weight. Walking n later on running.
Don't be discouraged & don't go to hard to fast.
Even something as insignificant as walking the dog or walking up the street instead of driving Will help.
Make small goals like lose 5 lbs this week, or be able to walk a mile in 10 minutes without stopping.
I learned replacing my meals with a protein shoe did help. I would workout in the morning drink one for breakfast n snack lightly throughout the day n eat a nice healthy dinner.
Stay positive n Don't get down on yourself if you pig out, skip a workout, or even gain weight.
Remember muscle is heavier than fat.
Lastly tracking my work n pictures helped me see it was working. It was my own sense of motivation.
Also I bought things a size or 2 too small n when I fit into it, it was th MOST AMAZING feeling in the entire world.
If I can do it anyone can.
Keep your heads up, no matter what shape or size beauty can be found in anyone.
I defiantly agree at one point I was too thin. I like to be 130 but I try to not be over 135 or less than 125.
