Have you ever wanted to play yourself on television? Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating might be able to help make this dream come true. Goodness. Before I started this business, I had no real idea of television’s ability to connect people. Once in a while I mention in this blog about an encounter with someone who knows me from television and is grateful for our meal plan. He or she (usually she) will tell me about how Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating has benefited them or someone they love. It’s a very good feeling, and that’s a natural fact.
Now some of our customers—maybe you, dear reader—will have their turn. We’re looking for volunteers for a new television commercial which will bring together a large number of our customers. The idea is to total up their weight loss and encourage others to reap the same benefits. Anyone with weight loss success from our meal plan is invited to participate.
The “reunion” commercial will take place in Mt. Prospect, Illinois, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 20. If you want to be involved, please contact my daughter, Sarah Borgstrom, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sarah’s phone number is 815.325.5049. You must register no later than September 8.

Following my comments about gastric bypass surgery in a previous blog, I received the following email: “I’ve seen a few of my friends who have had the gastric bypass operation and they are horrible consequences that they are living with—LIFECHANGING consequences. I tried Seattle Sutton for two weeks and lost approximately 12 pounds. I have been diagnosed with diabetes and needed to change my diet. My doctor was amazed when I went back for a checkup…I really enjoyed the food and the freshness of it. Thank you!”

In Lynn, Indiana, a company called Goliath Casket has a special market niche. They make oversized caskets for the deceased obese. The founder quit his job as a welder in 1985, telling his friends, “Boys, I’m gonna go home and build oversized caskets.”

Sarah from Florida—she’s the young woman inspired by the story of Amanda Crowder (as told on our blog)—has been on Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating for about a month now. She reports she loves the program. Her stomach problems are “much improved.” And she is amazed that just one of our “yummy dessert cookies” is “so satisfying.” In the past, she confesses, she would have binged on a bag of cookies. Isn’t that a familiar fault? One of Sarah’s favorite breakfast meals is our homemade granola. Oh yes. I quite agree with her granola preference.
Like Amanda—whom I adore—Sarah wants to help others. That’s one of the reasons she’s keeping in touch with Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating and reporting on her progress.
I love stories like hers. Please don’t hesitate to share your own.

During 2008, I have been privileged to make nearly sixty major presentations about Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating. I have spoken to groups concerned with diabetes, heart health, fighting obesity, child nutrition, women in leadership, and many others.
Testimonies from people like Sarah and Amanda are especially inspirational to many, many to whom I bring the message of calorie controlled, healthy eating.
She made healthy eating her mission in life long before anyone else did, in hopes of helping her own obese father. A registered nurse by training and entrepreneur at heart, she lives, eats and breathes everything about healthy eating and helping to improve people’s eating habits and overall health. She enjoys never having to bother with grocery shopping, cooking and counting calories. Her favorite SSHE meal, although it’s hard to pick just one, is the Potato Gnocchi with Basil Pesto Sauce.
