This Friday I will be at the taping of the Transformation Nation Finale! Those who were in the challenge were sent an email to see if we would like to be in the audience for the finale. I’m really excited to be able to go and be a part of it. I forwarded the info to my friend, Sharon, who also signed up when I began, and she was able to get a ticket also. So we are really excited to be going together. I am waiting to see if Meg, my workout buddy, who has been working out with me 5 days a week for this challenge, is able to get a ticket. They will let me know soon. Meanwhile, my famous Weight Watchers leader, Elyse, was able to get a VIP ticket to be there.
I had been telling Elyse since the beginning of the challenge, each time I weighed in at WW…. to get her beautiful red dress and be ready to be standing next to me when I win the entire challenge at the end….Well, I won’t be standing next to Dr. Oz winning the million, but she will be with me at the show to celebrate all that I have accomplished. That’s a dream come true! She was actually on the show when Dr. Oz announced the challenge, so it’s really great that she will be at the finale.
I’m excited to be in a room filled with people who have changed their lives. I can’t wait to talk to them and learn from all of their knowledge and wisdom while I am there. When I was confirmed for the audience, we were asked to send in our stories and before and after pictures, again. We were asked to write about why we joined, how our lives have changed, and if we inspired family or friends. I shared some of my story with them, again, I forwarded the letter of thanks that I shared with all of you, and I also asked if Dr. Oz would possibly check off my shirt that they still have.
I re-read over the letter, had Warren check it over, we prayed and then hit “send”. The last time I went to the Dr. Oz show, it was a day filled with the most amazing “God-incidences”…I have replayed that day over in my mind many times. Now, I am looking forward to Friday, when I get to go back and be a part of the celebration.
So, I’m hoping that I will have some great stories to share with all of you when I get home from the show. Although I won’t be next to Dr. Oz when the confetti falls…I will be in the audience with friends and my amazing ww leader who literally brought me to this place through all that she has taught me! Soooo excited!!!!
