because they said i couldn’t, i proved to them i could. after 2 miserable months of anger-driven weight loss, the results are as follows:
initial weigh-in: january 6, 2014 —
mid-competition weigh-in: february 6, 2014 —
final weigh-in: march 6, 2014 —
total loss —
17.6 lbs./13.6% body weight
my rewards….my delicious rewards.
i got a few tips from some wrestler friends on how to cut weight by fluid reduction. holy moly! i had no idea how easy it is to shed water weight in so little time.
i survived my first production summer.
one day i wrote about my unemployment anxieties and the very next week i get calls up the wazoo from people looking for a post coordinator.
five days, four interviews –> three offers.
it’s either feast or famine.
i ended up taking a sweet gig on a show premiering on nbc this fall called the blacklist, featuring one of hollywood’s best villains, james spader.
(ahem, tune in every monday night this fall following the voice. series premiere september 23.)
there’s a lot of pressure riding on the success of this show. it’s going to be an intense season. i ain’t gonna lie: i’m pretty friggin’ intimidated. but i love a good challenge.
bring. it. on.
