My Number Was Called

Weight Watchers Success Story Part 1: “The Call”
Weight Watchers Success Story Part 2: “The Shoot”

And the conclusion to the trilogy is “The Story.” When I woke up yesterday morning I only had one thing on my mind: omelet. I want an omelet and a sweet potato. Maybe some avocado; I don’t know if I’ll have time. When I got to work, I had my omelet, sweet potato, and avocado for breakfast. My day was complete by 8am.

Later, while waiting for a program to load, I checked Tweetdeck and saw this:


My exact reaction, in this order: 1) stomach dropped, 2) quickly closed Tweetdeck, as if to “hide” from the embarrassment, 3) text Dawn with “OH GOD. My WW story is up.” So yeah, it’s up. All I have to say is they did some Oscar-caliber editing with my interview. All in all, I am pleased with the final product, though a tiny part of me wishes I could have postponed it until after I’ve reached goal.

HOLY SHIT I'M AT THE TOP OF THE FRONT PAGE.

HOLY SHIT I’M AT THE TOP OF THE FRONT PAGE.

And…it could happen to you!

Weight Watchers is holding another contest just like the one I entered last year. Even though I didn’t win the grand prize, the only reason they knew about me was because I entered this contest. They are always looking for REAL people who have had REAL success on their program, because that’s the best type of advertising there is. My fellow Weight Watcher ladies (and gents) are living, breathing, marathoning, triathloning billboard advertisements.

I am proud to know so many of you (you know who you are) that have lost (and maintained) a stupid high amount of weight on WW, so I encourage you to enter if you weren’t thinking about it already. But of course you were, right? You’re not dumb.

Start drafting your 400-word essays now! The contest begins on July 21st. And if you want (being totally serious here) I can look over it for you and give you some tips. 😉

      Well if we kept entering each year that wouldn’t be fair to everyone else now would it? 😉 xo

    Woot!!!

    I may just use last year’s essay, haha. If nothing else I’ve at least lost more weight and have some sweet new after photos!

      You should! Pretty sure there was nothing “wrong” with anyone’s entry, especially someone like you who has lost over 100lbs, it’s just the luck of the draw sometimes. Good luck!!!
