...And I do my little dance on the catwalk

Ealier this week, I sent 2 pictures to the trainers I work with at the gym.

Nine Months Pregnant with Aubrey

April 2007
** 10 days before I joined the program at the gym, and the catalyst for joining that program

Today I received this letter from them:

Hello Emily,

After viewing your pictures I had a brainstorm and wanted to pass it by you. I was wondering if you would be willing to be part of our new marketing campaign for 2008. Mary Lee and Werner are two of our members that are going to be used for this campaign. They are both older, have participated in the 8-week program and have received tremendous results. We were going to use Mary Lee’s picture on LSC side of the gym exclusively. Werner’s picture was going to be posted on the Main MAC and the LSC.

What I was thinking is that, if you are willing, we could use your before and after pictures in the Kid’s Club and also the Main MAC. You are young and are losing pregnancy weight. You are an inspiration to all the women who are your equal. Most young mothers workout on the MAIN MAC side of the club. They also are involved with the Kid’s Club and Swim Lessons. You would be the ideal role model for these mothers!

Please let me know if you would be willing to have your picture taken for in-house marketing. I could meet with you and go over a testimonial so you could say pretty much anything you wanted and have it put up with your pictures. Of course, nothing would be printed without your approval.

If this interests you, please let me know. We are planning on printing the posters next week and would love for you to be our next model!

I do hope you will consider this! I was truly amazed by your pictures. I have only recently met you and I couldn’t believe that I was looking at the same person! Emily, for all you say – you should be 100% proud of yourself! You’re a new woman!

So, I am going in tomorrow at noon to get my pictures taken. Yay for me!

That is wonderful!! And it is so cool that it has just been since April! Wow!!!

You should also show them your wedding dress picture (complete with TP)! That would be fun, too.

I AM AMAZED at the work you have done in such little time! (and also just getting the wedding dress photo....and feeling like an ass for the toilet paper coments when it WAS ALL ABOUT YOU, just like the post title said, SOOO SORRY!)

You have obviously been working very hard. And I know we are all so proud of you!

You not only are an inspiration to other moms out there, but now also hold the title of "model" as well.

Shake your la-toushe on that catwalk!

And send them that wedding dress photo like Kelly suggested!!!

Okay, tears in my proud of my big sis...I really don't know how you do it all! Make sure you post those pictures!

Em, that is really awesome. Obviously, we're all proud of you, but to have the results of your hard work be used to inspire others is truly great and quite the compliment!
