When the call went out for stories for Michelle Bridges’ next book, on a whim I sent mine in, together with the ‘before’ and ‘after’ shots they had requested. Imagine my surprise when a package came in the mail which contained the new Get Real ! book, full of success stories of people who had done the 12WBT program and my story was there in print on a double page. Then imagine my ULTIMATE shock when I realised that other people had submitted their ‘before’ shots fully clothed, and I had submitted my horrible underwear shot that was taken when I commenced 12WBT 30 kilograms ago!! Oh no ! Shelves in bookstores all over Australia were going to have pictures of me in my underwear. Then some wise friends told me that the book name was Get Real ! and I “GOT REAL” indeed, and if it helped just one person make that step to a healthier lifestyle it was worth it. Still, I’m not sure Australia was ready to see me in my undies!!
