NFC Update #2

Hey, everyone!
I'll make this short and sweet ....
I got another email today from the marketing director at NFC telling me that I am one of the three winners! They are holding a small awards ceremony for the three of us on November 1st to announce what place we're each in and give us our prizes. The winner gets $500 cash, as I wrote before, but they changed second place to $300 worth of prizes and third place to $200 worth of prizes. I'll post a blog on the 1st and let you all know what happened! :)
Until next time,


  1. You should be the winner! I would think you are since they asked permission to use your before and after pictures. Also, thanks for posting so I can stop worrying about it. I am glad they are finally announcing the winners. The original cut off date was July 15. It had been a long time.

    1. Sorry, I should have said that I was also a finalist. Otherwise that sounded bad. I didn't receive an email about Nov. 1st. So, I didn't make the top 3. That is fine. Like you said, we are winners without the competition. But I really do feel you should be the winner. You look great! I think I saw you at the taping. I was the one that came in last. Did you do the taping first? Good luck and may God bless you as you continue on your journey.

    2. Hey, Dara! Thank you so much; that's very sweet of you. :)

      A couple of people got tapped before me but if you were last to come in then I might have been the first one that you saw go in for tapping.

      How did you find my blog? I'm just curious.

      Congrats on your weight loss! I'm sure you've lost a lot if you were a finalist.

  2. I found your blog searching for NFC contest finalist. I lost 60 lbs in under a year. I went from a size 18 to a size 8.

  3. Hey Amy,

    I came across your blog randomly tonight and have just spent the last few hours reading it from start to finish!

    Firstly congratulations on winning the contest! It is very well deserved!

    The weight you have lost is amazing - you looked really pretty at the start of your journey but now you look very happy and healthy too, you're glowing!

    I am a very plus size girl myself (325 pounds -eek!)and my journey hasn't even started yet. I've spent a lot of time looking online for inspiration today and boy did I find it with your blog!

    I would just like to finish by saying 'thank you'. Your are truly an inspiration and if I could do half as well as you have I'll be happy :)

    1. Thank you so much, Kim! Your kind words really mean a lot to me.

      I wish you the best on your journey. If you ever need advice or encouragment, I'm here. :)
