We are so so so excited here at Black Women Losing Weight. One of our dreams has come true. We were able to help one of our featured weight loss stories get major, national attention. A few months back we featured Myya Mixon’s 100 pound weight loss journey. We were later contacted by someone from People Magazine about getting in touch with her. They were looking for 100+ pound success stories and wanted to contact about 3 ladies we’d featured. I was over the moon thinking that one of our BWLW members could get to be a part of one of People’s weight loss issues. You can image how excited I was yesterday to get this message and photo from Myya…
“I just wanted to say thank you for your feature. Because of you I am going to be in PEOPLE Magazine sometime this week and I will be featured on Good Morning America this Friday morning at 8am!!! Because of you!!! Thank you for all that you do and for all of the people you inspire!”
Myya we are so happy for you! Amazing! Make sure that watch Good Morning America tomorrow at 8am and that you pick up the August Issue of People Magazine (in stores now) and check out Myya’s photos. Let’s support our BWLW sista!!
