TODAY show and Woman's World Magazine

Wednesday, February 13, 2008

So since joining SparkPeople almost 2 years ago I have lost 148 lbs. From my all time high of 330 lbs. I have lost a total of 166 lbs. I am in awe when I see those numbers. Losing weight and eating healthy has been a lifetime struggle for me. To be able to overcome it has been one of the most phenomenal experiences in my life. It's still an everyday struggle but these days I am winning more often.

Out of this awesome website has come two wonderful opportunities. A few months ago I was featured in Woman's World Magazine. I was so excited and thought life couldn't get any better. Then a week or so later, I get a call saying that the TODAY show is interested in me and my story. Wow!! I was floored! That was the most amazing experience of my life. Everyone was so wonderful and I felt like a star, especially when I got recognized at the airport, lol...

I just wanted people to know that this website is amazing. It has transformed my life and I can't say enough good things about it.
