Yes, the title of this blog post is Holy shit! That’s because the news I have to share is simply….well….amazing and just…Holy shit!!
I received an email Thursday that pretty much blew my mind. When my google alerts popped open a box that showed an email from a woman from Weight Watchers Corporate, my heart started racing a million miles a second. What could it be?? Was it about the job to be a leader that I applied for?? Was there something wrong with my lifetime membership status?? Was it them asking me to stop telling people I am a Weight Watcher member because they think my beer drinking is a bad influence??
It was an email asking me if I would be interested in being featured as a success story and if I would be willing to apply.
Ummmmm, Hmmmmmm, OH! Uh, HELL YEAH I WOULD!!!!!!!!
Needless to say, I got all sorts of teary eyed when I read the email. I then did the most logical thing I could think of and that was drop everything I was doing at work (sorry boss) to gather all the information they needed. Priorities people. I had the forms filled out and the information sent back in less than 24 hours. BOOYA!
Friday morning, after sending back my information, my stomach was in knots. All I could think of, and even tweeted was…
A blessing was sent my way though because I indeed did not have to wait that long….
My cell phone rang at 2:22 PM (no shit people, I have it saved on my phone…Frankies favorite # and his softball # is 22…weird) and it was the lovely lady from Weight Watchers, calling to tell me that I have been picked and will be featured as a success story!
I am going to be featured by Weight Watchers as one of their success stories!
You can say it with me folks…..Holy shit!
I am just in such awe right now. I seriously can’t wrap my head around it yet. I don’t know when it will hit me…maybe on my way to NYC, lol. I feel so blessed and I am *truly* honored. Weight Watchers means so much to me and has done so much for me and to be able to represent for them really is a dream come true.
I don’t have any details yet on where and when I will be featured but you know I will share all of that with you guys when I can. All I know right now is that I get to go to NYC and I will be doing a photo shoot (insert jaw drop here)! I appreciate all the congrats I got on Twitter and all of your support. You guys are amazing and without you this journey wouldn’t be as much of a success for me if it wasn’t for all of your wonderful support and inspiration.
I actually went out today and bought teeth whitening strips just for the occasion, LOL. Yes I know, I’m a nerd. I gi
Other good news that happened that day as well (I know, I know)…I got a call from our Weight Watchers Territory Manager about the leader job I applied for. She is super nice and really wants to meet with me so we are going to chat this week at my Weight Watchers meeting. How freaking exciting is that?!?!?!
I feel like my world has been turned upside down, in a good way for once! And I feel like there are so many doors that may be opening for me, and I cant wait to step through some of them.
Another great thing about Friday….my mom turned 50!! We took her out that night and let her get her drink on! I surprised her by inviting a bunch of people from work. She had a great time and I’m so happy for that. She deserved it, and more. I love her very much and I couldn’t ask for a better mother. Of course, we have our moments like every mother-daughter does, but she means the world to me. Being able to share the good news on her birthday about the Weight Watcher story was just the best! She said it was the best birthday present she could ever ask for.
So yeah….I don’t know how to put this but….I’m kind of a big deal.
