So, today was the day my "success story" was to appear in the Daily Mirror. And, lo and behold, so it did. We bought a copy on the way in to work this morning and flicked through enough to see it was a full page article with a huge "after" picture of me down one side. Of course, the article isn't quite accurate in places and it's certainly embellished here and there, but it could have been a heck of a lot worse. I'm feeling a bit weird about it all and find it even odder that other people think it is an inspiring story and can help others to lose weight too. But, if it does that then I'm glad to have helped even in some small way.
And there was one photo from the shoot that I didn't totally hate; shame they didn't use it *cough*
Cynically speaking, the article is really just an advert for the web site I use for keeping my food and exercise journal - Weight Loss Resources - but I have no problem with that at all as that site was essential for me while I was losing weight and it continues to be as I maintain that loss.
