People Magazine: Half Their Size

Say what?! I am featured in People Magazine's popular annual, "Half Their Size" 2018 issue! 😮😄😱

I have kept this a secret for MONTHS! I don't even know how I successfully did that. I guess telling family and close contacts (on a need to know basis) helped me to keep my mouth closed to the rest of you on social media. Haha! Even though I am really good with keeping secrets... this one was so freaking hard and painful to keep under wraps, but I knew it was for good reason. It would have been amazing to share the experience and photo shoot as it happened without giving too much away about the project, but that wasn't possible. Now that the issue is here and will be on stands Friday, January 5th, I can speak about it LOUD & PROUD to the world!!!! YES!!

Oh, I can't forget to mention... your girl made the cover!!! WHAT?! 😱 Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that I would be in a magazine (definitely not my first mag feature, but IT IS my first cover and photo shoot for one) let alone land on the cover of one! It is very rewarding and amazing to see a girl who has severe social and general anxiety and fighting everyday, just trying to live her best life with it... on the cover of a magazine.

Already hitting the ground running and starting 2018 off with a 💥BANG💥😬😜...... So excited to finally share my big secret! Some of you have already beat me to it yesterday 😂😜 Me and a few others have been holding onto this secret for far too long. 🔐 It is with much excitement and honor that I introduce to you my newest feature with @people magazine! 😱🤤 People Magazine's annual Half Their Size 2018 issue will be on stands this FRIDAY Jan. 5th! ❣️AND I'm on the cover!!!! I found that out yesterday morning and some of you noticed already as well! WHAT!!...ME?!...A COVER GIRL?! PEOPLE MAG'S COVER GIRL?! A girl with severe anxiety on the cover of a magazine?! How did this even happen? Please excuse me while I go faint after posting this... 🤷🏽‍♀️🙊🙏🏽🙌🏽😍❣️ The secret is out! FINALLY!! Now I can breathe again! It was very difficult keeping this kind of amazing news a secret for 4 months! Usually I only have to keep things like this a secret for 1 to 3 months max. I am so overwhelmed with excitement and gratitude! I am so thankful and grateful for this amazing opportunity and new platform that People Magazine has given to me to continue motivating, inspiring and sharing my story and transformation with the world. I •might• be crying and pinching myself just a bit or A LOT! What an exciting way to start 2018! 😱🙌🏽🙏🏽🔓🗝 📸: @perryhagopian 💄: @patriciacichonmua 💇🏽‍♀️ (On Set): @michaelthomaslollo 💇🏽‍♀️ (Salon): @jocelyn_hair 👗: @donsumada •••••••••••••• #huffnpufftobuffntough #peoplemagazine #halftheirsize #halftheirsizeissue #halftheirsize2018 #covergirl #150lbweightloss #weightlosstransformation #blessed

You may remember when I told you guys back in November that I was in New York City and told you guys big things were coming, but I had to be vague about it. I know... sooo annoying! This is why I was in NYC. People Mag flew me out for the photo shoot.

More about the Half Their Size issue

Every year People Mag features 6 women (sometimes men, if someone's story catches their eye, but mostly women) that have inspirational stories and have literally lost, Half Their Size. It is one of their more popular issues that is released just once a year. Many people look forward to the Half Their Size issue every year aside from the Collector's Edition issue, which seems to be released every couple of years, but please don't quote me on that because I am just going off of what I can find through research.

It is with such great honor, excitement, and happiness to be joining the People Mag Half Their Size family.

I am forever thankful and grateful for this amazing opportunity and new platform that People Mag has given to me to inspire and motivate others.
