I don't think I need to tell you what an incredible opportunity this is! Obviously I jumped at the chance and said Yes! - even though I thought they were kidding when I got the email. But it turns out they were serious. Not only that, but they all seemed to kind of know me from over here - some of them have been long time readers and were familiar with my story/journey and excited to work with me. Mind blowing!!
I am sure this will generate a ton of questions, so let me attempt to answer a few of them proactively:
- Nothing is happening to this blog - I am still going to blog here as often as possible.
- I will blog on the weightwatchers.com site twice a week.
- All of the posts on weightwatchers.com will contain new content. That is to say, none of my posts here will be copied/pasted over there. However, you might read about some of the same stories/experiences that you are already somewhat familiar with (mostly in the beginning as I introduce myself).
- My posts over there will be noticeably shorter than what you are used to here and not contain many photos (I still intend to post about my runs/bike tours/etc and do all of my photo heavy content over here).
So without further ado, here you go, this is my full profile on the Weight Watchers site (add me as a friend! send me a token!) and here's a link to my blog, which is titled: High Heels and Two Wheels. How awesome is that title, seriously? I love it! '
Hope to see you there!
Oh and totally unrelated, but before I go, I want to mention one thing - I hope you saw my beautiful new blog header (if you are reading this via an email subscription, go to my actual website to see it). My friend Dmitry took that amazing 'after' shot in DUMBO this past May. I asked him to go with me back to the location where one of my famous 'before' pics was taken in Brooklyn Bridge Park - the one of me in the leopard top just a few weeks before I rejoined WW in 2006. Dmitry is also the photographer whose work you might recognize from the #BikeNYC project (which was recently featured as the blog of the day on Flickr!) and he's the one who shot my very well-known "Greenpoint" photo that appeared in the official Five Boro Bike Tour program guide this year! He's an amazing photographer and so easy to work with. Thank you, Dmitry!! (here is his website if you are interested in seeing more work or contacting him) And special thanks to my dear friend, Amanda (who you see here often). She did all the work putting the images together and creating the banner. I want to thank them both for all their work because I'm just thrilled with the final product! I love you guys!
Oh and I'm still working on the Bike FAQ post (I know, I've been saying that for months) but my next post should be a recap of yesterday's World Naked Bike Ride, NYC edition! Stay tuned...
