Woman's World Magazine Article

Friday, March 01, 2013

Okay, the magazine is officially OFF the newsstands as of today, so hopefully I will not get into trouble for putting up a scan of it here. My new printer scans pretty well, of course I'm not smart enough to figure out how to get it all in one file. so there's the upper half of the article, and the bottom half is in another picture, and there's some overlap I believe.

But if you're interested at all, and didn't buy the magazine, here it is:



I really like what the writer wrote about me. She talked to me for a long time one morning, and I told her stories that I've told a hundred times before, in my blog here and to other sites and media, but this writer USED some of my stories. Like how I screamed to Duane (hubby) the day I hit ONE-derland to come upstairs and bring a camera (I was stark naked of course--that's how you weigh!), so I could take a picture of that beautiful site--the scale! And how I sobbed in my car that day in the parking lot of the doctor's office after he told me, "The EKG seems to show you've already had a heart attack." And about how my three pregnancies didn't really cause my obesity. I gained a normal amount of weight during those times and strange as it might seem, my cravings were for salads and fruits. But in between and after those pregnancies---HOLY COW---I craved and ate anything but salads and fruits!

Oh and I called the person who is in charge of photography for the articles in Woman's World Magazine again today and this time, she answered the phone. I had left messages twice previously. But today I got to talk to her and she said she would send me digitally some of the photographs that the photographer sent to them. HOW NICE!

Anyway, here is the article--hope you can make heads or tails out of it. I fear it is still much too small to read. Maybe I will get ambitious and re-type it all on a blog someday, but I doubt it.

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading the article and, even though I bought the magazine the first day it came out, I still peaked at your article again, when I was standing in line at the grocery store several days later, and thought "there's my amazing friend Pam!" emoticon I am so glad it was a good experience for you, and that you finally heard back from the photo editor. I bet your friends and family are even prouder of you than we, your Sparkfriends, are. When I read the article, I felt like they did you justice. You are something else! emoticon

    I really liked it, but I thought that I had missed it because when I found this issue I looked and found it on the last 2 pages. I was glad I looked at the whole magazine. Thanks again and great job! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    It really WAS a Great Article!! I read it while I was waiting in a LONG Line at Wal-Mart, and I have to admit even though I knew most of your Stories from your Blogs, it still brought tears to my eyes when I read about you calling Duane upstairs for the Picture of the Scale and the day you cried in the car.
I am so glad to be sharing your Journey with you!! emoticon emoticon

    I did pick it up at the grocery store. I'm going to leave it where my daughter can see it and maybe get inspired to lose 100+ pounds!

    I couldn't figure out how to blow up the pics so they were readable. It looks like a lovely article.
