It was my plans to do a weekly summary today and leave my exciting news to at least the weekend. But the few people I told have not been able to keep it hush, so here we go.
I'm being featured in The Sunday Life as a fabulous weightwatchers success story!!!
It's been on the cards for a while but it's only been the last week where things have started moving.
A few weeks ago I wrote a short piece on myself and submitted it along with before, during and after pictures.
Last week I got a call from a journalist who's covering the story and had a phone interview with her. She seemed very interested in my use of the internet, inparticular twitter and this blog to get support, so as far as I'm aware that's what she's focused on. I hope she doesn't make me out to be a tit. - Anyway, we'll just have to wait and see!
As if this wasn't exciting enough in itself, today I got a professional photographer come out and take some 'after' pictures. It was fun, if awkward and I felt truely ridiculous at times. But sure how often do you get to do something like that?! I'm so much more used to being the one taking pictures, not being told how to sit, where to sit, and I didn't get to see the pictures either! and I have no clue when it's going to be published. I'm presuming next week, but there's a possibility it could be this week? I should really try find out haha.
I took a wee bathroom picture with myself all fancy, this is what I wore, my hair and makeup done just before the pictures were taken.
So that's it.
The summary will be up tomorrow instead. And what ever Sunday I'm featured I'm sure I'll put a link to it here and possibly scan in the actual printed article!
Exciting eh? Go me!
(Still hoping to be featured in the offical magazine as cover girl one day!)
