Talk One – On June 27, I spoke with Talk Radio One host Steven Spierer about the “a-ha” moment that led to my 100-pound weight loss and how I’ve maintained that loss for 12 years and counting (my interview starts around 14:15).
Praiseworks. Listen as host Lynnis Woods Mullins and I talk about how true health encompasses more than just a number on a scale.
Fox News ~ I was featured in a segment that originally ran on Fox News LA on July 8, 2010, and then nationally the week of July 25, 2010.

Prevention magazine: Put on her first diet at the early age of 4 by her family, Shannon Hammer grew up feeling as though her weight was constantly monitored. As a child, she’d rebel by sneaking food—a bite of cake here, a few cookies there—and then covering her tracks.
Fun and Fit: I remember the moment clearly. It was January 2001 and I was standing in front of a drugstore holding an envelope of newly developed photos….. Click on the link and read the rest of the “A-ha!” moment that contributed to my success today.
Collage Video Exercise Video Success Story~ I have the great fortune of winning Collage Video’s Exercise Video Success story, the best part of which is that they donated $100 to The Thyroid Institute on my behalf.

Barnes & Noble Bestseller
The Positive Portions Food & Fitness Journal is now located on the Bestselling Diet Books shelf at Barnes & Noble:
Five-Star Rating on Amazon.com: Absolutely the best! Although I own several recommended nutrition and exercise journals, this one is the best I have ever used. It has plenty of space to record and is not crammed with so many recording lines that you feel overwhelmed. And I love the motivational pages! I would very highly recommend this journal and plan to order another when I near the end of this one. Try it! – February 12, 2010
Your journal is just what I needed to get me back into controlled eating. Knowing I have to write everything down has literally stopped me from reaching for that piece of chocolate or bread or whatever I was hungry for at the moment. It’s made me realize how much snacking I used to do – just a bite here and there that adds up into lots of calories. I especially like that it has six months’ worth of tracking pages and that the journal is attractive and inspirational. If you can lose 100 pounds, I can certainly manage to lose 30. Thanks!! – Reade
Shannon – I’ve been using your journal for awhile; got real serious the past week, and finally broke the plateau I’ve been sitting on for nearly a year! Thank you for your wonderful Food and Fitness Journal!!! – Jeannie
I love your journal! There’s nothing else like it on the market today. Every day I get something new to think about. For instance on one day you talk about how we need to share our space with our loved ones, but not our food. I had never thought of that before and that’s really helped me since I have kids who eat a lot of junk food. So whenever I’m home and faced with temptation, I’ll say to myself, “That’s not my food.” I learned that from you. I feel like I have a companion on my journey – thank you! – Roxie
I can’t tell you how much The Positive Portions Food & Fitness Journal is helping me. I’ve been writing in it faithfully since I got it and I’ve never done that before. The daily writings inspire me. Thank you for writing this. – Sheila
I am on day 24, and I’m down 11 pounds so far. I love my journal. It really is making me stop and think about the food choices I make throughout the day. I have had my moments of weakness, but keeping the journal makes it easier to get back on track. I flip the page and it’s a whole new day, and I get fresh new start. Hearing your story really gives me hope that I can lose the weight and keep it off. – Claudia
