I just did my first talk and book signing today and I was delighted. The crowd wasn't large (18 people), but four of them bought books. I was the guest, but Kathy Hall runs the classes. She is so knowledgeable about plants and butterflies. She gave me some Zebra Longwing caterpillars. I was so happy because I have been trying to coax them into the yard. We have the right plants, just hadn't seen any yet. Now that I have caterpillars, I will be able to release the butterflies from here and they will start returning here to lay eggs. So, it was a wonderful experience all the way around. Kathy lives on five acres and raises all types of butterflies. She has invited me to her home and I can't wait to go. I can't tell you how exciting it was for me to talk about my book and actually sign autographs.....wow, heady stuff!
I know this doesn't have anything to do with weight loss, but in a way, it does. The more publicity I am getting, the better I want to look and this is a motivator to keep me on track with the food I eat. It also keeps me busy so I'm not thinking of food all the time.
