I developed a SEVERE distaste for Oprah waiting for it to come out, but its definitely in the States now. I've gotten SO many emails from so many different people - the article DOES have a 3FC mention, so hopefully we can get some people into the site to get all of the benefits it can offer.

Thanks to all for the compliments

This is going to sound really cheeky, but is it possible for someone to scan the article and email it to me - or post the text somewhere so I can read it. I'd love to read it, but we don't get that magazine here and the website I think relates to this magazine doesn't post their articles online.

Thanks for your help!

Lynn - thanks! I feel like they represented me pretty fairly.

Spinymouse - they found me through my 3FC mini-goal collage post.

Darn it! Just came back from the drugstore and saw Oprah. I don't need to know how to "eat" like Oprah, I can put on weight just fine by myself thank you. KIDDING! I'd much rather see our 3FC Amanda.

Might take some extra time out there in Hawaii? We had ours on Thursday of last week, but I'm in CA.

I got SOOO mad at Oprah. Oprah Oprah Oprah. Ugh.

Eventually Oprah goes away and I WILL appear, though!

I would have loved for it to be longer. It was truly inspiring. I finally found it on Sunday! You look wonderful. So, tell me again how they did those pants, please.

Amanda, you look GREAT! I wish they had used a different picture inside instead of the same pic on the cover...

So WHO are the people that tried your menus? Are they 3FCers?

Congrats on such a GREAT job!!

No - they are just weight loss testers that WW finds. I REALLY want to talk to them, especially the woman who is motivated to keep going to goal. I have SO MANY more recipes for her!

The pants are fedexed to each of the before/after shoots for their weight loss stories. They are the same pants for everyone, and are merely prop pants.

Though I realized my waist only was about a foot smaller than the giant pants. Which is sobering, to say the least.

Daaaang girl, you look HOT!

I was waiting for Mandalinn's cover to come out, too... as everyone else said, I was tired of seeing Oprah's face! I pretty much never buy WW, but this was the exception. I told my girlfriend, "I kinda sorta know that girl from the fat forum!" (she calls it the fat forum ) and she was impressed and said you look beautiful also.
