Brooke of "Brooke Not On A Diet" Fame recently was telephoned interviewed by Shape Magazine Online as a Weight Loss Success Story.
If you've never read her blog, you should - but more than anything Brooke is a weight loss success. Brooke lost over 170 lbs. with the help of Weight Watchers and is now a WW Leader. Her blog was featured in Woman's Day magazine so it was no wonder that Shape wanted her to tell her story.
They asked for an after weight loss picture; she sent it. They didn't like it and requested another; she refused. They insisted; she decided not to be part of their magazine. I say - Good For Brooke!!
Shape only wants bikini photos apparently if your body is model thin......they don't want to share reality. You can read all about it and see the submitted photo at Brooke's site. Just click the link at the top of this post.
Her story made me think back to Pat. An older woman who was in my original Weight Watchers group that lost 150 lbs. She was like our group star!! She wanted to be a WW Leader and help others! The WW employee that interviewed her decided that she had "arm jiggle" and therefore couldn't represent WW. Pat hit a low point and gained all her weight back because the employee found a flaw instead of perfection. I still to this day say Shame On Weight Watchers!
And now I'll say Shame On Shape Magazine!
