A Once In a Lifetime Opportunity

So, as some of you may have seen in my most recent post, I auditioned for The Biggest Loser! I didn't, however, get on the show... which has actually proven to work out far better than I thought it would!

Instead, I was given the amazing chance to move down to Sunnyvale for the summer and focus on getting healthier! I'm super excited about it; I'll be staying with Camden & Ander's grandparents. For about 2 1/2 months I will be immersing myself in a healthier atmosphere: eating healthier, working out on a more regular basis, and ultimately getting away from the stress of Merced life! There are no words to describe how much I am looking forward to this! And I have so much support from my family and friends, and even my kiddos (though Kara did express a certain level of concern as to who was going to watch them while I was gone)! It's going to be so nice getting a change of scenery, and I'm sure I'll have fun! But exercising and getting myself healthy is also the main focus here, so it won't always be fun. I'm going to try to work really hard to get myself to the point where I can just feel good about myself.

One of the ideas we kicked around was possibly getting a personal trainer... but, as everyone knows, those don't come cheap! Finances are going to be super tight for the summer, though. So, we (Mary and I; she's been really encouraging through all of this!) thought we'd turn to others for a little help! You can donate as much or as little as you want, and however much money we raise will determine the amount of sessions I get through the summer!!

There are 4 different packages. The more sessions you purchase, the less each one costs! The packages are as follows:

5 sessions - $400 ($80 per session)
10 sessions - $750 ($75 per session)
20 sessions - $1360 ($68 per session)
24 sessions - $1499 ($62.50 per session)

(If you would like to donate, or want more information, please contact Mary Gudgel at Any help will be greatly appreciated!)

I'm going to stay until about August 17, idealy, and I'll be blogging about the entire adventure, both here and at my weight loss blog, though I'm going to try to keep pics to a minimum. :) I can't wait! I'm super excited!!!
