The countdown is on! There are only a few more days left of voting. Many of you know that I am speaking of the Status Fitness Magazine Cover Model Contest. I am currently in the finals and would love your votes to make this dream a reality!!! I have been blown away by the support I have received so far! This week alone my story was featured in two different Newspapers on two different coasts!!! Check the pictures below! I was also thrilled to receive an email from Status Magazine congratulating me on being featured in these articles.

As many of you know my lifestyle change has been a process and I have worked hard every step of the way (if you want to read more about my story and see my before and afters click here: ). This contest began last January (2010)… it involved an online voting competition. From there they chose 160 finalists!!! These finalists are competing on Facebook for ‘likes.’ The contest will be over January 31st, 2011 and the final decision will be based on Facebook Photo ‘likes’ and Status Judges!!! With your help I could be considered for the cover.

Being on this cover will prove to myself and to others that dreams are attainable. Many times since venturing into the fitness industry I’ve been let down by the overwhelming feeling that it’s more about who you know than how hard you work. Having this cover will prove that theory wrong! That if you work hard, stay positive, and give back to others you can achieve all your goals!!! Please help my, small town, formally out-of-shape self take my success to another level. In the next few days it is out of my hands and up to you. It is only a couple clicks but would mean so much to me.
