I’m in SHAPE! (Giveaway too!)

I thought you guys might like to see this!

That’s me right there in the pages of SHAPE magazine! I was contacted by the editors of the magazine way back in October to be featured in the April 2010 issue of the magazine. Understandably, I was very excited!

I did a phone interview with the writer of the article and then they send a fabulous photographer, Tamara Reynolds, over to do a photo shoot. There was a lot of back and forth between the photographer, the art director and myself as to what I should wear. I would get something at the store, take a picture of me in it, and send it to them. After several different outfit possibilities, you can see that they finally decided on a pink shirt and some black running pants. Doing the shoot was a lot of fun, although by the end of the shoot I was freezing as it was done in January.

As I wrote this little post I thought about how grateful I am for all of you who read and comment. So, I’m giving away a subscription to SHAPE magazine right out of my own pocket! This is for US residents only and I will close comments at midnight tomorrow (3/23).

I hope you have a fabulous day, and if you already get SHAPE magazine and win, they will just extend your current subscription by another year.  Diane

    That is so cool that you will be in the magazine. Actually that is probably my favorite part of the magazine that I read first, people’s weight loss stories!

    Shape is one of my favorite mags. I just order 2 years worth a couple of months ago but I haven’t received them yet. I’m going to have to pay full price to get this issue. Not only to see you but I love Chelsea Handler. 😉
    You are such an inspiration. Congrats on your success.

    Way to go Diane. I subscribe to SHAPE and those real-life stories are always my favourite part things to read in the mag – they do a great job of showing folks like me that it can be done! Now when I read the April issues I can say – “hey, I kind of know her” (only through your blog, but still it’s cool).
    No need to enter me in the contest I’m from Canada and already have a subscription.

    I just received my copy of SHAPE yesterday and your article was the first one I read! It was like I was reading about friend or a family member.

    You are truly an inspiration!

    I have never commented on your blog before, but enjoy every blog entry that I receive in my inbox. You are really an inspiration to me. I watched you on Dr. Oz and you were just like I knew you would be. Thank you so much for talking about your journey to everyday people like me. I am not overweight, but on the brink. I want to do better every time I read your blog entries, however. You are a smiley-face in my day!
