People Magazine - Half Their Size Issue Update!

Good News! I have been contacted by People Magazine again and this time I PROMISE to *NOT* shave my head. ;)

As you long time readers may recall, last October I was contacted by People Magazine as a candidate for their "Half Their Size" issue. I was selected, and I was going to have a photoshoot and everything... but then I kinda went and shaved my head. ;)

I was asked for recent pictures. So Aaron took some new ones today.
I thought I would update my current pictures and blog this good news.

I also update my Frequently Asked Questions page with the question: "How did you get started?".

Jessica you look just gorgeous! Very stunning! You truly are inspirational. Good luck with the People mag... I hope they feature you, they would be silly not to. Greetings from Holland, Amanda :)

You look GREAT! I am so excited for you, I hope that you get in People and that you are just so thrilled with what you have accomplished. Time for me to get on the treadmill and get some work done on my body!

Congratulations!!! I'll be watching the newstands for that issue and be sure to snatch it up so I can say "I 'KNOW' her!!" (even though she doesn't know me because I'm a lurker on her blog...but that's beside the point).

The new pics are beautiful!

Hello again Jessica... I just wanted to let you know that I was so amazed by how good you look in your last post... that I wrote about you on my blog... I hope that is OK, please let me know if not. Well done! I am really inspired by you as many others are I am sure :)

Hiya Jessica! I found you via the gorgeous Amanda and so glad I did! What a bloody brilliant story! I just read your FAQ page too and I am sitting here grinning at the screen like a dork saying, "yes yes yes!"

I lost 175lb over six years and it's made my day to find a fellow "slow loser". I always get the Loose Skin question on my blog too, I just wrote a post about it recently. I've found the weights and slow loss has helped heaps, too.

You look fantastic and congrats on all your hard work, hurrah! :)

Yay, I'm so happy for you! :) I've been reading your site for awhile, and it's incredibly inspiring. I think it's amazing that you shaved your head for charity, too! (I read all of your archives a few weeks ago, lol.) Your new pictures look amazing! Congratulations!!!
