My name is Shannon from OhShenanigans.com! I graduated from Syracuse University in 2010 and during my 4 years there, I gained a whopping 80 POUNDS! Yes, you read that correctly. Now that I'm living on my own and have pretty much everything else in order, it's time to attack this weight issue.
I'm so serious though. This week I really started to look into how I feel after eating certain foods and tried to only eat when I was hungry. Of course I failed miserably, and learned that I only eat when I see a sign about food, or if its noon and it's "supposed to be time to eat even though I just ate at 1030".
Or even worse....when all your friends are going out to eat. My days get worse as they go on. Breakfast is usually easy because I make something quick and head right out the door. Lunch time nears and since I was too tired to get out of bed on time, I didn't have a chance to make something healthy. So my thoughts start spinning about all of my options.
- I could be healthy and get a salad with Tuna or Chicken....but that's boring
- It's Buffalo Chicken Wraps Wednesday! (yes, my job has them every Wednesday. And I buy it, every Wednesday)
- I could go get Panera Bread, and stop by Target afterwards
- Eh..you know what. I'll just get McDonald's and get more Monopoly pieces.
