    hi, did anybody else get an e-mail from Kerensa about a photoshoot for The Sun??? i just came home from work and got an e-mail from Kerensa that they are inviting me to London... at first i was really excited but then realized i've got 30 pounds in my bank account and started wondering how I'm gonna get to London with this kind of cash:D

    well, i'm gonna be in London on the 12th February for the photoshoot so if everything goes according to plan, i should be in The Sun Woman thingie in around 2 weeks time... I think I'm more nervous than excited tbh... oh well, i'm kind of hoping i'll get a modelling job or something similar, so i can finally leave my current job;)

    pretty nervous i guess:) don't really know what to expect, what it's all going to look like- i don't know anything to be honest:) that's what scares me. i like knowing beforehand, being prepared for every possibility. otherwise i get really stressed out and i don't actually enjoy myself much:)

    Sounds fantastic fun!!! :) good on you! :) Glad you managed to work round your finances. :)

    It was only when I had a professional shoot done with my hubbies and girls that I realised I WAS pretty.. even whilst overweight. I'm sure you'll be amazed at how wonderful you look and find that it really all sinks home. :)

    Do you get to buy proofs? Just wondering if you would be able to get one framed or onto canvas. :)

    apparently i'm supposed to get all of the pictures on a cd so if i wish to frame one, i will be able to:)
    my finances are better now, it's just that at first the shoot was supposed to be at the very end of the month, so before getting my paycheck:) that is why i had absolutely no money left:D but now my bank account is much more satisfied:)

    Great news! :) hope it all goes well, glad the financial side isn't standing in your weigh either. :)

    I know i'd be nervous as anything on the day so may be worth getting something like rescue remedy for nerves if you think you'll be the same. :)

    Hope you have a great time! :)

    well, i'm back from London, and I have to say, I haven't felt so tired and worn out in ages. 45 minutes of putting make-up on, high heels that must have been smth like 7 inches tall, dressing and undressing... well, at least it's over now:)
    and i finally met an actual celebrity- the "Dulux dog":D

    the dog was awesome! very furry:) and had a cute fringe;P apparently, i'll be in the paper on the 23rd February. but we'll see if it all works out- i think they hoped i had some fascinating and horrible stories to tell about why i went on the diet in the first place, but to be honest, it just kind of happened and it was actually a total coincidence that i went on CD:) i just thought i'll see what it's all about, and the next thing i knew, it was over:) so i'm worried that they will kind of make up some interesting and embarassing stories about me:/

    You're so lucky. I'd love to spend hours having a photoshoot. Even if it is boring. I'd feel like a celeb.

    I'll be sure to get the paper then. It's my boyfriends birthday so I'll remember the date.

    the whole thing was kind of funny though:) both the lady taking the pictures and a taxi driver driving me to the photoshoot (?!) asked me if i am an actual model... it was kind of weird, but nice at the same time:)

    by the way- it's gonna be a silly question, i know, but is the sun-woman a separate magazine, or is it included in the actual monday edition of the sun???

    Well done on your fantastic weight loss and I look forward to seeing you in the Fit Squad article.

    Never know who will read your story, perhaps you will get your dream of being a model:)

    For those who missed it here is the story of Sarah Newman who lost 9 stones she appeared in The Sun Fit Squad last Monday.

    The Fit Squad is on a Monday and is part of the main paper.
