Before and After Pics

Well, the commercial has been out in select markets, but I have yet to see it yet.  I’ve heard from friends that it ROCKS, so I’ll have to take their word on it.  🙂

BUT…and that is a HUGE but…I just saw some of my photo shoot pictures on the website…!  Yay!

Here’s are “Before and After” Pictures:

Photo Journal is complete!


This is so not fair :(

All my friends from past and present are seeing me in the new eDiets commercial, except for me!  Ugh…so frustrating!!!

This is what I’ve learned so far…I may be wearing a kick-ass blue dress, but definitely have 2 shots in a bikini!  Yay!  I can’t believe I made it to the small screen in a bikini…that in itself is such an accomplishment for me.  Just wish I could see it for myself!!!

I’ve looked all over the internet and can’t seem to find it, so I guess they really are just playing it in “select” markets.  So far it’s somewhere in Virginia, Cummings, GA, and Tallahassee, FL.

So I kindly ask of you, dear friends and followers, if any of you should happen to catch it on your DVR or see it online…please, please, please send me a copy!  I worked so hard to get where I am now and really want to see the results from any other place than my bathroom mirror.   I’ve even lost 10 more pounds since the commercial!  I’m sure that my Insanity workout will most likely put some of those pounds back on, but at least they’ll be nice lean & tone pounds.  (Those are the best kind) 😉

Thanks and if I happen to find it first, I’ll definitely post it so y’all can see too! 🙂



eDiets shoot – End of day 1

After many hours of testimonial questions and multiple photo shoots, we wrapped up yesterday’s session at 6pm and headed back to the hotel. A few of us headed down to the lobby to share a drink and talk about the day’s events.  It was interesting to hear how everyone’s experiences were  so very different, even though we all participated in the same  things.

Brooke and I then said our goodbye’s to the rest of the group, and headed off to explore Portland and find some dinner and nightlife. Two trains, one cop, and three creepy and ‘dark alley like’ blocks later, we finally found a suitable place to eat.  We had such a great time talking about the shoot today and what was going on in each of our lives. For me, it wasn’t just dinner, it was a new friendship beginning and it was fun!

Eventually we had to call it a night and we headed back to the hotel on foot (we thought we’d do without the train drama this time) via Brooke’s map on her phone with only 8 minutes of battery left!  We walked briskly through the cold, windy blocks and made it back just after her phone battery died!  Yay!

We both crashed and now we are here at day 2 of the eDiets photo shoot and looking forward to what today has to offer….

eDiets shoot – Day 1

Arrived at Limbo films at 7:45am and headed straight to hair and make-up. Soooo much fun! I could definitely get used to the pampering 🙂

Next up: Testimonial interview!


Portland…here I come!

Wow, I can’t believe the day has finally come for me to fly out to Portland!  I am so incredibly excited, and honored, to be part of the 2012 Ad Campaign for eDiets!  I have worked so hard…and this, being my 2nd time around on eDiets, I’ve had some additional challenges.   Thank heavens I had the eDiets meal delivery plan.  I don’t know what I would have done without them!  Between working full-time, making time to spend with my family, and going to the gym, it would have been impossible for me to achieve my weight loss without the ease of having my meals prepared for me and ready to go when I needed them.  I truly believe in this product and I’m so happy that I can be a part of a great company with great people behind it.

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who has supported me!

Wish me luck!

ps – Latest picture of me working the Miami Boat Show 2 days ago – now posted in my photo journal!

I made the cut!

Drum roll please……after many many months of my weight-loss journey, I finally got the call I was hoping for….I made the cut for the 2012 eDiets Ad Campaign!  In just 19 days, I’ll be flying out to be part of their commercial and print-ads and I am SOOOO excited!  It is such a wonderful moment for me.  eDiets was there for me every step of the way – their nutritionists are phenomenal and their trainers are fantastic!  Any time I hit a plateau or needed advice for the gym, they were always there for me and I couldn’t be more appreciative then right here and now.  Thank you eDiets – for all the support that you give along with your WONDERFUL fresh meal-delivery plan.  You ROCK!

Stay tuned and I’ll finally have that famous ‘Before and After’ shot to add to my post-pregnancy journey!

Goodbye 63 – Hello 2012!


First of all – I’d like to say thank you to everyone for all their encouraging words and advice. I am truly grateful and wish every one of you the best in 2012!

Wow – I can’t believe it’s only 2+ hours away from the New Year! This year has been full of challenges and battles, but more importantly – full of joy, support, and success. When I fist started dieting after I gave birth – I was at 228 lbs! (Down an automatic 12lbs from labor & delivery). Then, I started with eDiets at 218 lbs and today I weighed in at 164 lbs! Wow – that’s 53 lbs gone with eDiets, and 63 lbs down all-together! If that’s not something to celebrate – I don’t know what is?! Only approximately 10 pounds to go and I’ve reached my goal! I’m so excited for what 2012 has to offer. I am finally over being sick and I’ve added ‘juicing‘ to my eDiets meals, which has given me a ton of get up and go in the morning! I never thought to ‘juice’ before, because of all the sugars from the fruit, but there are tons of juicing recipes that are full of vegetables too! I have to say, that I was very nervous at first. I’ve seen the ‘green juice’ that people drink and the sight of it literally made my stomach turn. But, I had a friend tell me how great it made them feel – so I thought I’d give it a try. I headed down to my local farmer’s market, bought all the ingredients and made my first drink. Slowly, I brought it up to my mouth…I let the tiniest droplet touch my lips and to my disbelief – it actually tasted good; almost great! So, down the hatch it went and now it’s my morning ritual. One week into juicing and I feel like I have more energy and concentration during the day then ever before. I feel like I have a new confidence now – and that these final 10 pounds won’t beat me. I’m determined, I’m healthy, and I’m rearing to go.

Bring it on 2012! 😉
