I’m going to the SP Convention!

Thursday, April 09, 2009

I am not dreaming! I’m going to the 1st ever SP Convention. emoticon

I am stepping up my program to see if I can reach my goal by May 2nd which is not only the convention but my birthday. So what better birthday present could anyone ask for?

I had a choice of where I wanted to be the beginning of May.

1. My nephew’s wedding in WNY where EVERYONE (people I won’t see during the summer) would see how great I look after losing 50 or so pounds by then.

2. 20 year reunion of the women I worked with for many years where everyone would see how great I look after losing 50 or so pounds by then

3. RVing through Destin and Atlanta to get to WNY where we spend our summer and seeing all my friends and co-workers and employees along the way where many people would see how great I look after losing 50 or so pounds by them.

4. Going to the SP 1st ever Convention and being with people who don’t know me, don’t know if I have lost 5 pounds or 50 pounds and hopefully don’t care.

My choice: Number 4 Meeting the people who helped me through this journey, made it possible for me to get hold of my life and realize it is not a diet it is a lifestyle.

I don’t care to impress people and hear them say “how great you look” (now). Actually it’s kind of embarrassing because that means you looked terrible for so long!

My main concern and goal was always to be healthy and I feel healthier now that I did when I was in my 20’s thanks to SP People and all my supportive friends on the teams.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!
