Sharing some exciting news!
Thursday, January 13, 2011
First of all...
Hooray for my first blog entry! I want to let all of my Spark friends know about this exciting opportunity that was presented to me.
I was asked to share my story of losing 175 lbs. with all*you magazine as part of their Special Health issue. (even though I'm not finished my weight-loss yet) They are featuring several SparkPeople success stories. The issue will be on news stands exclusively at WalMart on January 14, 2011.
That's me on the cover... the one wearing the blue shirt in the row of women on the bottom.
I am so thrilled to have been involved because it was my chance to share some of my weight-loss journey with people who are going through the same things I did. It is my sincerest hope that sharing my experience will help someone get through their rough spot or maybe even encourage someone to get started! That would be such an indescribable feeling!
I'm not sure what the writers decided to use of my story. I only hope that they chose the best parts...the ones that say...Hey, you can do this! or I'm just a regular person like you and it wasn't easy but it is possible... you just have to work at it!
Thanks for reading my first blog and don't forget to go out and buy this special SparkPeople issue of all*you magazine. I've gotten the most awesome support from being a member of SparkPeople...I luv my SparkFriends, you're THE BEST! You guys ROCK!!!
Sending out some Spark Luv, Dawn
