First Magazine

On Sunday I have a photo shoot for First Magazine. There will be a 4 page piece on carbohydrate addiction for the January issue and they chose my 85 lb. weight loss story to feature.

They're sending wardrobe and hair/makeup.....I'm so nervous!

I just thought I'd share with all of you. Without so many of you, I would never have made it this far.

as a side note, on this edition I have right here beside me one of the titles on the front cover says "breaking health news" "women with high levels of vit d have 80% less ab fat and nearly all overweight women have low d levels, supplement this way to lose 100+ lbs"

How funny they mention that, you turned me on to my vit d in the first place!

this will be great! don't be nervous. you are gorgeous and will be an inspiration to so many people.

just let your excitement be tempered a bit by the fact that without question they will get something wrong that makes you FURIOUS in the final article. it's just inevitable, from my experience with anything like this. just breathe deeply and vow to laugh it off and concentrate on the positives of the experience! it will give you something good to talk about when people ask you about it, in any case.

Best of luck! *hugs*

Wonderful news, Fawn--and about time! I hope they dont screw up the inspiring story of your journey and put their own spin on your transformation. They'll be selling a lot of the January issue, that is certain!

ahhh thank you everyone! Susan, I have that issue too. It's a huge story on Vitamin D! I think they're really digging into current science and that's why I'm SO very excited this piece is the effects of carb addiction.

I fully expect some weird spin thank you Raven for that heads up. I never understood as much about journalism as I do now. I'm hoping they publish my website too because my personal journey is well laid out there.

I think I'm most nervous about being forced to clean my house!

Everyone thank you again, have a fabulous Thanksgiving and I'll be sure to share when it comes out.

Maryam, there should be an online version! If not, I'll send you one my dear friend.

Fabulous! (Just don't wear a red dress) (kidding)

So glad somebody is finally wanting to do a good article not just on carbs but on their addictive hold over some people, and how it can be such a strong compulsion for some people. Glad to see this topic addressed.

I'll look forward to reading the article in the January issue. Thanks for posting the heads up.
