What did I see?
Monday, January 10, 2011
On Friday, January 7, 2011... I asked a simple question in my blog...What did you see?... wondering if there was a particular thing you saw that made you change! A few of you were kind and shared...some of you shared with me privately...and I know SOME OF YOU...pondered...remembered...
and responded to yourself!
I promised I would share mine...and now the time as come!
Many of you know...I occasionally am featured on a little reality show on TLC called, "Toddlers and Tiara's"!...Don't Judge! Yes...moms are occasionally psycho...yes...SOME kids are misbehaved...and NO...I am not necessarily a FAN of the 3 year old looking 18...but...I am GOOD at what I DO!
On April 10, 2010...I shot an episode in Oklahoma City. It was pretty typical...I was a little off that day...but thought I was looking GREAT!
After the pageant...when I went to do the cut ins...the producers were watching some of the footage and asked what pageant they were watching. When they all turned and laughed...about 8 people in the room...all laughing...I was FILLED with FEAR! I realized that the FUNNY FAT GUY they were watching...WAS ME!
Honestly...my house has REALLY GOOD MIRRORS...because I had NO IDEA!
Forward 5 days...I decided I was READY for a change! Jerome Merlau gets me started on some "journey" and forward 8 months to today...70 pounds lighter...MUCH healthier...with work I have only BEGUN to do...and well...you get the idea!
So this Wednesday evening, you, me, and the WORLD will see B.S. Todd...(Before Spark Todd) and you will see the guy many of you have come to know! I am GRATEFUL for a National Reminder of how I NEVER want to look or feel AGAIN!
(note: after much begging to the producers...you will not see MUCH of me in the episode...it was VERY hard for me to watch. Funny how that worked out!)
