Mr. Low Body Fat to be featured on CNN!

Well guys, I told myself that I wasn't going to say anything until after my interview with CNN's Matt Sloane, but I just couldn't wait to share the good news!

I'm not sure if you guys remember, but I blogged about how my pictures were posted on their Fit-Nation website last year. One producer told me that they wanted to do a longer piece on me at the beginning of this year; however, I never heard anything back from them. Since I truly appreciated the exposure they gave me, I really didn't think much of not hearing from them.

Well, all that changed Monday when I received an email from Matt! After exchanging emails, he decided that he and his crew will come out and let me tell my story; this time for TV! He is also interested in getting footage of me training (I don't workout!) since, as you guys know, I consider myself a bodyweight culturist and highly recommend folks master their own bodyweight first. Matt seems really interested in seeing my minimalist routine.

I don't know when my interview is going to air, but I will definitely keep you posted.

Thanks to everyone for all of your support and encouragement. I'm pretty pumped for the interview, as I feel that I'll have a much wider audience to encourage to "Feed their brains to lose the weight!"

**Update**
Matt and Chris, the CNN guys, just left my place with more than enough footage. They were really cool guys as they created a very down to earth atmosphere, which I really needed. Hey, I've never been interviewed on camera before. LOL!

Anyway, my interview will air next Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 8:30 am EST on CNN's Fit Nation segment. It will also be featured on CNN's Fit Nation webpage. Fellas, if you want some added motivation, go to this site and read and watch some of the great weight loss success stories. I'll be posting video of behind the scenes footage of my interview next week. Tomorrow's my 37th birthday, so this was a great early b-day gift!

Hi! I just wanted to tell you that I saw your interview on CNN.com. It's really inspiring to see what you've done - over the winter, my boyfriend and I have been majorly slacking and his metabolism about 2 years ago slowed down majorly. Also, I was wondering if you had any advice for my mom... she has an interesting situation. Thank you so much for having a great deal of motivation!

Hello Elyn and thanks for your comment. Hey, don't worry about not sticking to a program because we all go through that. Many times with weight loss we all want to be sprinters when we need to be more like marathon runners and see the larger goal. Have your mom read through some of my old blog posts for help. Take care ...
