Where in the world was Suzi??

So if you follow me on Twitter and/or Facebook, you already know my secret “big news” since I quickly posted it between flights last night…

I had made sure when I found out about this amazing news to check and see if it was alright that I announced it to everyone, because I wanted to SCREAM it across the universe.  Of course, they told me that unfortunately I had to wait till two things happened:

1.) It was taped

and

2.) The air date was set

Well folks…both of those things have happened so now I can share all my amazing news!  Here is where I traveled to this past Tuesday:

(I have my own pictures, but they are not uploaded from my camera yet…and I’m currently stuck in an airport with no cable to upload them.)

CHICAGO!!  The windy city as they say…and no shit people, there’s some real wind going on there!

And here is the reason *why* I went to Chicago….(drumroll please…….)

……………………..

……………..

……..

I’m going to be on The Oprah Winfrey show!!!!!! 

Seriously people….OPRAH freaking WINFREY!! 

This episode is her Weight Loss Finale show and I am *so* honored & blessed to be able to say that I was able to be part of it. 

How did I get to be part of it you wonder??  Well I submitted my story a little while back and then the rest is unbelievable luck…

Now before everyone starts asking me for my autograph (I  will take pictures & sign them for like $5) , I didn’t actually sit down and like *interview* with Oprah or anything.   They chose 100 people who’ve lost 100 lbs or more to be part of this show and I was one of the lucky 100 that were chosen! SmileThey really did their best to showcase all of us though and I will *definitely* be on film.  They put the 100 of in special separate sections and they did something special to show off our weight loss that I will hold back the details on until the show airs so you guys can see it….but it was *VERY* cool!

And just for the record, this wasn’t a “Weight Watcher” specific show or showcase.  It was 100 people who’ve lost 100 lbs or more the healthy, natural way.  And man oh man, what an *amazing* group of people we had there!!

So when can you see it??…..May 10th is the air date!

(And no, we didn’t get a car or like a million dollars or a crazy ass makeover…you’re going to have to watch the show to see if we got something!)

I will have a full report of my trip, along with pictures and details sometime next week.

As of right now, I am stuck in the Philadelphia airport waiting for my flight out to Boston.  (I’ve literally been traveling in airports since Tuesday….I am beyond *exhausted*!)

The weather is awful here on east coast and my flight in from Syracuse was the bumpiest one yet (I’m probably jinxing this).  How I managed not to barf all over the place is beyond me!  Right now I’m on a standby flight which I most likely will not get on but if I don’t get on this 12:00 flight, I’m all set for the next one at 1:15 (I’m probably jinxing this too), which means I will be pretty late for the start of BLS (my Weight Watcher Leader training which I am attending for 3 days). Awesome.

The only positive lining I can find about my situation at this very moment….

the bar is open ;)

  2. Oprah, Smoprah! One time I was in a crowd shot on a local news broadcast. The NEWS! And I was making a really funny face! And I didn't have to lose 100 lbs before I got on TV. And... okay, okay... I'm jealous...

    Love Chicago. My daughter starts college up there in the fall, so I'm sure I'll be hating it soon enough.
