Goals: Lose weight and have more energy

Success: "Hates to sweat," but has joined a fitness center and is enjoying her workouts!

Late in 2010, the Heart of New Ulm Project encouraged members of the community to apply to be the next “Face of New Ulm.” In 2011, we will follow the winners who are publicly setting out to improve their lifestyles, root for them to overcome barriers they are sure to face along the way, and celebrate their successes on the road to improved heart health. Shannon is one of the four winners of the casting call.

Shannon McKeeth, owner of Bingham Hall Bed & Breakfast, is always on the go so her goal is to learn to prepare “tasty yet nutritious” meals for her family. She is the mother of two teenage daughters and found preparing quick, tasty, nutritious meals for her family to be quite challenging. Recently, Shannon discovered low-fat frozen meals that were easy to prepare and provided guidance for portion control. Shannon enjoys golfing with her husband when there’s not snow on the ground! Her goal this year is to make sure that any changes she makes to improve her health and lose weight are ones that she can maintain.
