    I am beyond excited! :banana: I just have to share this with my podcast friends.

    As some of you know, I joined Jenny Craig about a year and a half ago. I had a goal of getting down to a healthy weight for my age. I was very, very overweight and struggling with the basics of life. Nothing else worked and I knew that JC was my last resort before looking into gastric bypass surgery.

    Well, a year later I am 118 pounds lighter and healthier than I have ever been. Yesterday, I went to a weigh-in and my center told me that they are nominating me for a Jenny Craig spread done in PEOPLE magazine every year. It is about people who lost half their weight and there is a very good chance I will be included. I also have been nominated to be on their website and possibly in an upcoming commercial or promo items. :woohoo: :yay: :dance3:

    I am so excited and just wanted to share with my podcast friends! I always listened to the DIS Unplugged while exercising and have made so many friendships here. Thank you, Pete, Kevin, Julie, Corey, John, Walter, Regina, Will, and everyone here on the boards! :disrocks:
