Hi, my name is Shannon and I am 293 pounds. I suffer from Hashimodo's Thyrioditis (extreme hypo thyriod) and have never found a diet to lose the weight I want. South Beach I lost 13 and gained back 16, Atkins gained 9 pounds, no carb all protien diet lost 16 pounds but had massive migraines and regained 9 of it. And so on and so on...

I read a post on another site from a woman who had my condition and in the matter of 3 months lost 78 pounds and a year later she is still the going strong!!

This is for me! This is the one! THEN I read all the posts and saw all the sincere support and heartfelt caring towards one another and I knew this is my time.

I am Shannon, I am 293 pounds fat, my goal weight is 180 and I can do this!!

Thanks MF!! thanks my new friends !!! I can't wait to post my before and after pics and to be a supportful cheerleader for all of you!!

I have to be careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business.

Another loser AND another Texan. Welcome, Shannon. Be sure to post any questions, and don't ever be afraid of sounding stupid. We ALL had questions in the beginning.
