A little tidbit about us on The Rachael Ray Show

There was a little update about Willie and I on The Rachael Ray Show! Apparently, we are weight loss all-stars.

Here is the clip from the show:

Once again, I want to thank Rachael Ray and her wonderful staff for everything they have done for us! It means the world to us to be able to share our story and keep moving in the future!

We are blessed!

I’m excited to see what the future will hold for Willie and I. Right now I don’t know what it is because I’m always striving to be better than I was yesterday and Willie is always trying to learn something new.

I am glad they finally told people where we were from because when most people watched the segment they didn’t know. It’s pretty cool that we can represent a great side of our community and represent our running group!

Looking forward to China

Looking forward to China

Remember when we were on The Rachael Ray Show and she gave us a trip to China? You  may have forgotten but we haven’t.  It’s an exciting thing for us that we’re totally not prepared for.  We should have been on this months ago and now I feel like we’re in a big cram session. There are only two things we have done to prepare for the trip: buy Rosetta Stone and get things squared away for The Great Wall of China Marathon (and I’m even behind on that stuff). With The Louisiana Marathon weekend closely approaching, it’s time for… View Post

One crazy year filled with media

One crazy year filled with media

This year has been a crazy year for us!  I really don’t know how it happened or why it happened, but I’m VERY glad that it happened.  At the beginning of the year, I sat down with Willie and told him I wanted to blog about our weight loss.  People were asking us questions, mostly the same questions, and I thought a blog would be the place to get the information out there.  I had no idea that someone at CNN would be searching the internet for weight loss stories and stumble across the blog!  The funny thing about the… View Post

Yes, we were on The Rachael Ray Show!

Yes, we were on The Rachael Ray Show!

Keeping a secret is very hard so I’m very glad The Rachael Ray Show episode finally aired! I don’t know how it happened or why it happened, but we are truly thankful for the experience! Many great things have happened to us this year, but this has probably been the most life changing thing. Why was it so life changing? Being on television and visiting NYC are great things, but this experience was life changing because it was a huge wake up call for us. We lost the weight and have managed to keep it off but everything else was… View Post

Long run and The Rachael Ray Show Updates

Long run and The Rachael Ray Show Updates

Happy Saturday! This morning I tackled my first 13.1 in a non race situation. Alls I can say is, it didn’t go as horrible wrong as my Tuesday run so it was a success. And I ran it without music so this was how focused I was on running this run to it’s end. The fun felt good and that’s all I could ask for but I guess I was running slower but steady in the humidity. I don’t have any complaints at all! Plus, I got to sport my new CEP night view compression socks. I got them at… View Post
