Shannon said if you're thinking about trying intermittent fasting or making a healthy lifestyle change, just start! That's often the hardest part, but if you surround yourself with support and others on a similar journey, it'll be much easier.
It's been so helpful that her family and boyfriend have also been intermittent fasting. They keep each other on track and can text each other in moments of weakness. They're also sensitive about not bringing tempting food in the house.
Shannon said, "You just have to decide you are ready to make the change and want it for yourself. Just set your mind to it, and you can do it, too!"
