#YWM2013: Day One!!!

image

Well, we made it to Phoenix before noon (after a stop at the infamous Waffle House restaurant raves about whenever he goes to the South, and 3 gas station potty breaks)! The convention started yesterday, but obviously I couldnt make it because I had a date with Alex at the Taylor Swift concert!

Yes, yes it was amazing. AHHHHH-MAZING!!!!

It is 110 degrees right now, but I was super excited to make it to the breakout session I was most interested in about changing the public perception(s) of Obesity.

Its not a label.  It doesn’t define you. It’s a seriously impeding disease, and by treating it like a personal choice, we are hindering people from seeking and obtaining health!

I am eager for the next grouo of breakout sessions starting back up at 2pm today. Dont forget to check out last nights post to get links for the live sessions that the OAC is streaming live on YouTube! Use hashtag #YWM2013 on Twitter to sumbit questions for the panel!

Also, don’t forget to follow @SeeSondraSlim on Twitter for exclusive updates, quotes, photos, and more from here in Phoenix!

The fun is just beginning! Now, time to nap and head out to get some last minute accessories for tonight’s “Hollywood Beach Party” themed welcoming ceremonies bash!! Woot Woot!

More soon!

’til next time!!

XOXO

Waiting for Tonight!

Hey Lovelies!

I am chillin’ at Starbucks and thought I’d work on the blog while I wait for the concert in just a couple hours!

I know I am 25 years old, but I admit it. I LOVE Taylor Swift. Catchy tunes, writes her own songs, and her fave number is 13? She stole my heart right along with the hearts of the 9-year-old girls!

I am excited not just for the concert tonight, but because tomorrow Sean and I head to Phoenix for #YMW13 with the Obesity Action Coalition.

Even if you cannot attend this year, you are in luck! The OAC will be streaming some of the educational sessions LIVE for your viewing/educational pleasure!

Tonight, they have the special “Teaming Up to Tackle Obesity” session with two former NFL players discussing how even athletes struggle to keep a healthy weight on and off the field!

Check out the line-up:

I hope that some of you will check out the wealth of information that the OAC has to offer. I am so excited to be there.

Don’t Forget!! You can submit your questions on Twitter using the hashtag #YMW13 starting at 7pm PST!

That’s all for now. I have some last minute road trip items to pick up before the concert starts, but I hope everyone has a fab evening! It’s almost Friday!!!! ❤

‘Til Next Time!

XOXO
