Just a quickie here...we had a great time today on the Dr. Oz show and despite being there from 9 until noon time there were few, if any slack moments. Dr. Oz has a comedian / ringleader kinda guy who was doing a lot of wise-cracking and giving instructions to those of us who had come for the show. There was a "special guest" who had us sweatin' to the oldies. I am HORRIBLE at those kind of things and if I made it to the camera then (please edit...snip, PLEASE!) you'll see me stepping along and putting my arms up in the air pretty much exactly OPPOSITE of everyone else...lol! The GOOD news is I didn't poke anyone's eye out! :-)
They featured some selected guests and had a tip / question section in which they randomly picked from the 100 of us to come up and share a tip and ask Dr. Oz a weight loss related question.
Sadly, yours truly garnered none of the limelight. Sadly mostly because I SO wanted to give a shoutout praising SPARKPEOPLE.COM! BUT: I DID talk it up among the others who were there...many hadn't heard of SparkPeople. I also spoke up to the staff of the show about SparkPeople indicating what an invaluable resource it has been to me. I EVEN put a plug in there to the "special guest" while another member of SparkPeople who was there was taking a picture of me with this guest. I'm hoping that somehow there "may" be a sort of "honorable mention" of SparkPeople.
Unfortunately CHRIS3215 got shut out of the show due to all transportation having been canceled out of her area...even though the snow had not yet arrived ANYWHERE! My DW is AWFULLY pleased that didn't happen to me...she wouldn't have wanted to LIVE with me then...! :-)
We're staying an additional night as everything arrived late and things are looking quite formidable out there...back home tomorrow!
Will be sharing a few pics at a later date...!
The show will be airing next Tues. Here's the note I received:
Thanks to everyone who braved the snow and blizzard conditions today to come to the show! I wanted to let everyone know we will be airing Feb 16th. Thanks again!!!! And keep up the amazing work!
