I did it!! I'm so proud of myself. On this past Saturday, I walked in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. It was cold as....let's just say it was COLD!!! 40 degrees. I had on 3 shirts and a jacket. I forgot my gloves and it took a long while to warm up. I was up at 5:45 a.m. getting ready. Now this was my first walk so I didn't know what to do or what to expect. I was alone and my friends were coming later. I walked up to the Survivor's tent to go in and this older lady told me I couldn't because I didn't have a survivor shirt on. She told me I needed to have proof of registration. I told her that they didn't tell me that in the email. And she told me "well you can't come in." She wasn't nice OR helpful at all. I was about to cry y'all. I really wanted to, then this so sweet young lady from Zeta Tau Alpha Fraternity (the national sponsors of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure survivor program and who provided and served breakfast) stepped up and told me what all I needed to do. All I had to do was go over to the registration area and give my name and they would cross it off the list and give me my t-shirt. That other lady could have told me that. So I walked on over and got it, put it on and trotted right back over to the tent. I missed the survivor picture, but I didn't care because I felt like I was now being allowed to enter into this elite club (oxymoron much!)
To much to tell here, but hopefully you will enjoy the pictures. I've attached them on another page. Let me just say that I look like a potato cause I have on so many clothes, but I'm down 36lbs. and am weighing 242lbs. now. I'm so happy and the scale has been kind. Jiminy is doing his job, Whooo HOOOOO!!!
