I Got Picked!!!

Oh My Gosh!!! I have been chosen to be in the Helena Slim Down Challenge! I just found out today and I am thrilled. The Helena Slim Down Challenge is based on The Biggest Loser concept. 6 contestants from Helena and 6 from Pelham are chosen to be in a weight loss contest. The winners in the past have won a cruise in addition to about 40 plus pounds! I applied for the contest 2 years ago, the first year of the contest. I was chosen as an alternate but didn't have any success because there was no one on one training and I just cant loss this weight without some major training and education. Anyhow, I reapplied this year and have been chosen as a contestant.
I plan on plotting my progress on my blog and hopefully can be an inspiration to others who are trying to loss weight. We have our first meeting in a week or so and I will keep you all updated...Wish me luck!!
