    My instructor has just e-mailed me over something she has mentioned to me before.

    She want me to put my details forward as a success story in the RC mag :eek:

    Really don't know whether to - its not the sort of thing I would ever entertain doing as I'm quite reserved and keep myself to myself and NEVER like being centre stage but the thought of the make-over etc quite interests me, if only for a fun day out.

    What do you think?? should I??? :gen147:

    I think you should go for it. It'll be a great momento of what you've achieved and your story will be great for others to read. I'm like you, I hate being centre of attention and prefer to blend into the background, but give yourself a day off :) Plus, do you get to keep the clothes?!

    All my family say I should do it and be proud of what I've achieved but the thought of everyone in the country being able to see my old weight and my old pics terrifies me

    However .... the clothes???? good question!! lol

    think I'm going to do it (without telling friends and family, except my children).

    You see all my life (my fat life) all I've ever done is wear black clothes as iw ould never buy anything with colour. My dream dress isn't the little black dress (afterall I have one), but a long slinky red dress, Now I don't know if that would happen but I won't know if I don't try.

    So my decision is ALMOST made

    Wouldn't you always feel you'd missed an opportunity if you didn't? I say, go for it - and just think of how many others you may inspire!

    think you're right banglesforme. If I do it I said I would take the form and the before and after pic in tomorrow night so I'll just have to see if I have the courage :rolleyes: :whistle:

    OK I've done it!! handed in the forms and the before and after pic to my instructor and she's pleased I'm doing it.

    I don't think anyone, even my family realise what a big deal this is for me though. I come across all confident but I'm so not, it's all a front and I'll be shaking, red and blotchy if I get chosen.

    There should be a 'biting-your-nails' smilie to go in here!!
