The highlight of my Las Vegas work conference happened Wednesday!!!
Walgreens launched the Walk with Walgreens campaign a few months ago and Ali Sweeney was one of the faces for it. She was at our meeting in Las Vegas at an expo doing a meet and greet. When I realized she was there I just said to myself I have got to meet her!
Now I do watch the Biggest Loser. I do not agree with the way they have people rapidly lose weight and I do feel it is healthy to lose slowly 1-2 pounds per week every week. But I will say this, there is something I cannot deny: that show helped me realize I needed to snap out of the obese funk and get healthy. It was season 10 and it was the first season I had watched.
I will never forget the contestants running a marathon, I was inspired. I was in awe, I was empowered. I knew right then and there that I was fully capable of running and I would do some races. And so my journey kept going :)
Ali was so nice!! She was excited to hear about my weight loss and even wanted to shoot a quick little video! Here it is: Video Link.
In the video you will also see another Walgreens manager who has lost 20 pounds! She was a sweet heart as well her name is Angelina!!
It was a nice feeling to see someone else who has been through the weight loss battle and come out on top. It was fun meeting Ali and getting my picture taken! She is so beautiful!!!
How was everyone's week?
