Yeah, yet ANOTHER blog...lol


This has been a RED-Letter Day for me!

A fellow member of SparkPeople (CHRIS3215) mentioned that she was going to be on the Dr. Oz show for the 100th episode they plan to have 100 people on the show who have lost 100+ pounds and have kept it off.

Hmmm...got to thinking...I'VE done that...so I asked her about it and she helped me to connect to Dr. Oz's staff and batta-BING! I'm IN! Woo hoo! :-)

I had been uncertain for a few days, as one of the requirements also had been that the weight had to be lost via non-weight-loss-surgery methods. I informed via phone conversation that while I HAD weight loss surgery back in the 1980s, I blew it and gained all the weight back. But THIS TIME I lost the weight via healthy eating and exercise. The staff person didn't point blank tell me I was in, however she DID ask my shirt size as the 100 guests will have to wear a Dr. Oz shirt on the show.

It wasn't until just minutes ago I received the official e-mail notice PLUS a phone call from the same staff person confirming that I am IN!!!

I am so PSYCHED! Looking forward to being able to somehow speak a syllable or two about SparkPeople while the cameras are rolling. However I have NO idea what opportunity I'll have to speak with 100 of us present. Somehow, however, by hook or crook, I'm sure that between CHRIS3215 and I we will be able to champion SparkPeople's cause!

And here is the OTHER BIG NEWS!

For WEEKS I have been hitting the wall with my weight. Fluctuating between 202 and 205 or so...so close, yet seemingly so far...

NOW? I am DETERMINED to BREAK THROUGH 200 by next Weds. when I am on the show!

This has me so stratospherically REVVED I just absolutely KNOW I CAN DO THIS!!

BIGTIME THANKS to CHRIS3215 and the rest of my SparkFamily!
