back in june, i took a picture of myself in a bikini that amazed me!
just for fun, i emailed it, my fat picture, and a short bio, to family circle.

yesterday, they emailed me back saying they would like to use me!! and they wanted to set up a phone interview!
the interview was held this afternoon! we spoke for almost an hour. among the facts i told them, was wonderful stuff about MFP!
i do not know what parts of my interview they will print, yet. but it's fun to think about!

i'll share more when i learn more.
