I am so thrilled with the turnout, participation, and enthusiasm that came with my first-ever Instagram contest! The creativity and range of photos was so fun to go through each day, and I can’t thank everyone who participated enough. I have wanted to start doing more to connect with all of my amazing students at home, but now I can’t believe that I am the final judge! This has been such a difficult decision and you are all winners in my book. The amazing women in the top ten mean so much to me! Naturally, I want to have you ALL there and am sad that there can only be one winner. Seeing your Tracy DVDs and gear along with healthy foods, activities, and in some cases, seeing your faces was really inspiring. It was almost like each picture was better than the next and some of them brought me to tears.
It is with great excitement that I am announcing the winner, Melinda, to join me in the Hamptons this summer for one of my Detox Weeks!
When I was deciding from the top ten, I really felt like I needed to get a feel for the finalists. and see their past involvement with TAM and the method over the years. Melinda has been a TAM devotee for over 5 years and anyone who saw her photo can see that that’s the case. Like so many of you, Melinda truly embodies the method with her enthusiasm, devotion, and commitment. What stood out to me was not only her fun photo of her healthy life (love the surfboards!) her message, support and presence resonates throughout the TAM community. I have seen her posting on the Facebook and the Metamorphosis community sites and have heard about her devotion. To me, a healthy lifestyle doesn’t start and stop with your workout, but it is how bright you shine your light in every layer of your life. Her knowledge of my method and the way she spreads it through our community to help everyone, is so giving. When I first saw her picture posted, I knew instantly that she would be a finalist, with the healthy foods and stacks of continuity, I couldn’t get over her full commitment to the method and the respect for how it works. She truly is a brand ambassador and I can’t think of anyone more deserving of this detox week. Her excitement is infectious and I can’t wait to meet her this summer!
This email would not be complete without a mention of Emily’s great photo. Emily’s collage of a happy, healthy life while finding the time to embrace my method into her lifestyle was really positive. Her connection with her son melted my heart and his challenge of fighting cancer reminds her how fortunate she is each day to treat her body to her workout without excuses. She sets a healthy example for her son to make the most of life and be a doer and embrace life and all that comes with it. They are a force of bravery and unity. Thank you for sharing your story and your photo with us – we are sending Ethan and Emily a special package from the TAM family. As Ethan is a true winner in my book!
I do hope that even though I can only bring one winner to the detox weeks I would love if some of you would like to join me, Stacey, Maria, AND Melinda this summer – as of this morning we have a few spots remaining and I would love to welcome you to the Hamptons.
