Hi, Shannon! Great job with the honesty. It’s why I read everything you write!

I was skinny up until about 28. Then, the medication and my terrible eating habits made me put on the weight. At one point, I was 360 pounds. After I moved here to the Philippines and stopped eating so much processed food, I dropped. I’m still about 240, but I’m happy.

Sometimes I eat keto. Sometimes I fast. Most of the time I like to eat, so I do.

I’m not trying to diminish your story. I just wanted to add mine.

I’m glad you wrote about this because not enough people do. You are beautiful, inside and out. Don’t let anybody drag you down!

Good job!
