After various members received their awards, the leader then suggested that we use the WW tool Mental Rehearsing to prepare ourselves for the moment we stand in front of the WW meeting room accepting our goal or lifetime award. Mental rehearsing allows us to practice in our imagination to prepare for a successful performance such as weight loss success. After the mental rehersing spiel, I raised my hand and confessed that not only do I mentally rehearse, but I visualize the following:
...myself BUSTING through my BEFORE pic on OPRAH while Justin Timberlake's SEXYBACK plays in the background...better yet, while Justin Timberlake sings the song to me with the mic in one hand and twirling me around with the other hand. How's that for mentally rehearsing?The leader then says, "If you get on Oprah, I'll pay for the plane ticket myself!" GAME ON! So needless to say, I just submitted my first of may emails to the Oprah show. How cool would it be for the entire 9:00 A.M. meeting participants, myself, and the leader to appear on Oprah? So many of the 9:00 A.M. members have success stories to share and inspire others.
And the leader, Karen, where to start? I credit some of my weight loss success to our award winning leader Karen. When we choose to throw in the towel, Karen refuses to give up on us or let us give up on ourselves. She makes the choice to adopt a healthier lifestyle less painful with her witty repartee (I just used one of my $5 college words...lol).
So...question...Can you think of some attention getting stunt I could pull to grab the attention of Oprah and her producers. I'm thinking a video of me pretending to be on Oprah busting through a mock BEFORE the journey picture of myself. How funny would that be? What are your thoughts?
