My Weight Watchers leader (and several others) convinced me I should enter the 2010 Weight Watchers Role Model of the Year contest - so I wrote (with the wonderful help of my hubby) an essay - took some pictures (you may remember me posting those) got everything together and got the notification yesterday that I had won! - There were 106 prizes given out nationwide - 100 Macy's gift cards - and 6 Grand Prizes of a trip to New York for a photo shoot and to be in the magazine! I'm thrilled that I won anything! Only 106 winners nationwide!! I promise before the weekend is up that I will post my essay - but I wanted to quickly post this since I had already put it out there on twitter that I had won. I'm also thrilled for my leader and the receptionist of the meeting I go to - they also get a prize for encouraging me! I'm happy for them because they are part of the reason that I'm where I'm at today - The receptionist has taught me how to be a more active person and my leader has taught me to love myself no matter what and try to remain positive no matter what!
