I know this sounds crazy... but anyone interested in being on the cover of a major national magazine?

All you have to be is:

female
22-38 years old
attractive with a "great smile" (please don't be modest! think the "dove" ads. "real" is in.)
at or near goal weight
lost at least 15-20 pounds on no-s
willing to appear on the cover of a national magazine

If this sounds like you, even approximately, please email me with a photo to pass along. If this sounds like you except for the last item, think what a worthy cause you will be serving and reconsider. Smile

Seriously, don't be shy, who knows how these magazine editors think, why not take a chance to be (a little) famous? I will be very grateful for any submissions -- it's a huge opportunity for me and No-s as well.

Thanks in advance,

Reinhard

I'm two years too old and 40 lbs away from my own goal.
Rats!!
Got the smile down though Smile
Reinhard come over to my myspace page and steal any pix you want.
Feel free.
Just tell em I'm 30 Very Happy
Some guy on myspace asked me out the other day, haha and asked me how old I was.. He took a guess that I was 29.. When I told him 40 he said.
"Forty my ars*"
Maybe next year I'll be able to say I'm at goal!
Wow that would be something Wink

Love,
Debs x

You look great, Deb! And hey, 4 out of 6 criteria isn't bad. I'll certainly pass this on.

Note to other potential "cover girls": though it's great if you want to post here, you can also email me privately. If you meet the other criteria (more or less), please don't worry that you aren't beautiful enough: "real" is in, and besides, you'd be amazed what they can do with photoshop these days. Smile I PROMISE no one is going to make you feel inadequate if your photo doesn't wind up being used.

Free signed copy of the book (and my eternal gratitude) to whoever submits photos.

Thanks in advance,

Reinhard

You should make a NoS calender with the HabitCal as a feature.

Have a great week!
Peace and Love,
Cool Debs aka Miss January.. haha Laughing

As am I. But I haven't gotten loads of submissions yet...

So please, if you more or less meet the quantitative criteria, don't let concern about the qualitative criteria hold you back (that you're not good looking enough, etc). First off, you're probably not a very good judge of that. Secondly, you don't have to be that good looking: "real is in" and if it isn't "in" enough, photoshop can fill in the gaps. Smile

If the prospect of appearing on the cover of a magazine merely for being a little skinnier mortifies you, I understand. But I hope I can appeal to your sense of generosity in that case -- this would be a huge break both for me personally and for millions of potential no-essers out there who might never hear about it otherwise. (And where are all you American Idol types who would do ANYTHING to be even a little [in]famous???)

If you find this whole thing immensely obnoxious, a concession to the Diet Industrial Complex, I hear you. But comrades (channeling great uncle Friedrich), if the apparatus of oppression offers us a chance to use its power to undermine it, we must take advantage. Smile

Hey Reinhard,
Just sent you an email, but with the new deadline, not sure when the pic would be taken, may need a few weeks of NoS to get back down to fighting weight (THAT would be a great motivator, eh?)

I'm guessing it's a women's magazine since you're not asking for a cover boy?

I'm surprised the cheapskates aren't throwing in pictures just to get a free copy of the book (with soon-to-be-famous autograph).

And if January 22 is the deadline, when are you going to announce the selected volunteer (if one is selected)?

Nice idea! Better than the usual weight-loss nonsense in magazines.

Haven't lost 15 pounds though.

Also, I'm not from the US, so it wouldn't be a national magazine for me.

Thanks all who submitted photos! We actually got a fair bunch after my last desperate plea -- and one that seems to have captured the editor's interest. So I'm closing this "contest."

I'm deeply grateful to ALL who submitted -- you are a generous and GORGEOUS group of young ladies. Please send me your address for your signed copy of the book if you haven't already.

Sorry about the photoshop comment Deb, I was trying to make people feel less insecure, not to be insulting.

You're right, HG, It is a women's magazine, but I don't think I'm supposed to publicly divulge details yet -- it still may not happen, after all. But when and if things firm up, I'll shout them from the rooftops (along the identity of our lucky "winner," if she cares to be identified).

THANK YOU ALL!

Reinhard

Hi Reinhard,

I've been lurking on this thread, but haven't submitted anything from myself as despite being in the right age range, I don't think I'd be a representative candidate as I'm quite new to No S, haven't lost 15 lbs, and could be said to be already following another lifestyle/diet (vegan) which may skew the results or something (though being a vegan certainly didn't stop me gaining weight in the first place! Very Happy).

If you ever need a range of photos from a bunch of people though (e.g. examples of No-S ers) then I'd be happy to submit something Smile I have actually lost 2kgs since doing No S (about 4-5 lbs I think?) so am quite pleased, only have 1 or 2 more kgs to loose before I'm back to the where I was from ages (approx) 20-27 (which was fairly steady despite the odd blip up and down).

I hope you will post more when you have your cover model arranged etc.! Smile
