UPDATE 11/8 : Thank you everyone for your support! Thanks to YOU, I've won the Modcloth contest!! <3 <3 I'm so excited! The announcement was made late last night! I'm so excited for this opportunity, and to pick out some new clothing (which i definitely need!).
Thank you so much! Look forward to a photoshoot once the items arrive! <3
UPDATE 11/4: From the Modcloth page: "Due to technical difficulties with the voting app, we've extended our voting period and we're announcing the winner of our Just Our 'Arche-type' Contest on Monday, Nov. 7 at 5 p.m. PT."
While I currently have a large lead, anything can happen over the weekend, so I implore everyone to continue to spread the word and watch the contest! Thank you so much, everyone who has already voted! Your kind words have meant so much to me! I very much appreciate everything everyone has done to help me get this far in the contest!
If you prefer to promote and reblog through Tumblr - I've made a post there as well: [link]
Good morning, everyone!!
I write this journal this morning because I have been selected as a finalist for ModCloth's [link]
Arche-Type contest! In this contest, I could win a $500 gift card. For thsoe who have not been following me on Twitter, over the past year I have lost 90lbs with diet and exercise. I have dropped from a size 22 to a 10. Five weeks ago, I had skin removal surgery to remove all the extra skin leftover from the weight loss, and thus lost another 3 inches off my waist. I'm super happy with myself and my new body, but dropping so many sizes so rapidly has left me with not many clothes to wear.
thanks to the generosity of my friends and family, who have donated clothes for me, I am not buck naked, but I find I have huge gaps in my wardrobe, particularly work clothes and winter coats (I only have one coat). Nothing would make me happier than to win this contest and get that gift card, to replenish my wardrobe!
Please consider going to this Facebook link below for the Modcloth contest and voting for me! Last I checked, I was in second place. Voting closes at 11am PT on 11/4 (Friday). I would be incredibly grateful if you would spread the word and get your friends to vote too!
It would mean the world to me to win this contest and be able to buy some new clothes!! [link][link][link]
Note: the facebook tabs app doesn't work on mobile browsers, as I discovered while trying to check how many votes I had before writing this post!
