My Oprah Debut Will Be….

Wednesday, November 28! Here’s a YouTube preview: click here.

I’m a little excited about being part of Oprah “history.” Together the 21 of us lost 3000 pounds. Oh my.

Last night when I got the call about the air date, I got a little nervous. When I was in Chicago for the taping, I thought of it in just that way: it was a taping. I met some really fun people, had my hair done, tried on mad numbers of clothing, and then with a knot in my stomach, walked out on a stage in front of 300 people to show then that I had, indeed, lost a few pounds. That was doable. When did I forget that cameras were filming all of it and eventually a few million people were going to watch this show?

Ain’t reality grand?

I’m not going to stress about this any more. I’m going to watch the show with Shari, who went to Chicago with me, and I’ll sit on her couch with my hands over my eyes like I’m watching a horror movie, and peek out between my fingers once in awhile until I get comfortable seeing myself on screen.

I keep reminding myself of the reason I did this in the first place. If even one person decides to lose weight, exercise, take control of her life because she saw me on Oprah, it was worth it all.

Please let me know what you think of the show. There are so many amazing people on it. I can’t wait to watch it. I’ve completely forgotten what I said.

  1. I don’t recall how I found your blog…perhaps it was from the weight watcher’s message board. I read your words everyday now. I plan to watch the show but I believe that you are an inspiration even without your appearance on the show. You are honest and real…a real find. You have inspired me in many ways….see you on the 28th.

  2. Thanks to the miracle of cable, I can view the show 4 times in one day (in addition to watching the tape, which I have already programmed the VCR to record). I am not leaving anything to chance when it comes to your national TV debut!

  3. maybe instead of covering your eyes with your hands you should cover them with black olives.

  4. I too found your through the ww boards and look forward to your blogs. I can’t wait to see your “O Show”! I know you’ve probably heard “you’re such an inspriation” a million times before (and are too humble to believe it!) But you ARE an inspriation!
    I wanna be just like you when I grow up!
    😉 Thanks for all you’ve done. It gives lots of people hope!
