15 Minutes (Maybe)

I feel a little funny about posting this, but apparently not funny enough to NOT post about it.  After all, approximate brushes with fame don’t present themselves every day (now is the time to don your tolerence cap if you choose to read on).

It seems that Oxygen Magazine has planned to print my transformation story!  I am thrilled and honored to be on the pages (well, actually just 1 page) of my favorite women’s fitness publication.  It will be 120 pages+ into the magazine, nestled between the ads for toning gel and the miraculous thermogenic fat burners, but I’ll take what I can get at this stage of my life.

In any case, the article is scheduled for the January 2013 issue, hitting newsstands on December 18, 2012.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it actually happens because I am not a person who counts her chickens (though I guess I’m doing just that by publishing this post now).  I almost always plan to be disappointed, this way when things actually pan out, it’s a fabulous and wonderful surprise!  I will try and resist the urge to buy 20 copies, but I’d be lying if I didn’t admit how excited I am.

And I couldn’t have done it without the encouragement and inspiration I’ve received from this lovely community.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the love and support you’ve shown me.  I would never have had the courage to submit my story without you!

Now, let’s hear about your brush with fame.
