"I am a single mother of a gorgeous 6-year-old, she is my inspiration for getting fit! I don't want her to grow up with a chubby mommy!"
With that from-the-heart motivational message that she posted on her Member Profile page, Diet.com super slimmer ShannonKristine kicked off her amazing journey -- a journey that now has her more than 100 pounds removed from her starting weight of 262 pounds!
"When I started this journey, I set the goal of 140 pounds and thought there was no way in *you know where* that I would get down to 140 but thought it was something fabulous to shoot for.... well after losing 100 pounds I have decided to officially lower my goal weight to 130!" Shannon tells Diet.com.
"I have played around with this idea for a while, and considered shooting for 130 but not officially lowering my goal *just in case* I didn't get there I wouldn't be too disappointed. WELL I know I can do this! I know we can all do this. In the end I realized that if I didn't lower my goal I am just selling myself short.
"So here it is... in PRINT... that my official goal is 130 pounds. I will meet this goal no later than Christmas Eve 2008. The weight loss is coming slower now, but it is surely still coming week after week, and so I know that I am capable of hitting this goal!"
The first time we featured Shannon, she was down a sterling 74 pounds. Once she rolled by the 100-pound mark, we knew we had to turn the spotlight her way again.
Let's start with the basics.
