Tonight I am presenting at our hospital's support group. Officially, the title is: Making the Band Work For You. Unofficially the title is: The Girl, The Myth, The Legend.
Possibly a smidge too much?
Of course I am nervous. First, support group usually consists of roughly 40-50 people, with roughly 98% of those being Gastric Bypass. So...I want to make sure my presentation is general enough that everyone can take away a little something. Afterall, we all struggle with many of the same issues.
Second, and this is super important, people have to laugh. I edu-tain. A little education with a healthy dose of entertainment. But I also must practice lady like behavior...which is HARD. For example, I probably shouldn't say "make exercise your bitch"....although I do love that.
Third, I want to inspire. But I would like to do so without coming off a) arrogant b) pompous c) epicly stupid.
And then there is the real issue.
WHAT TO WEAR? My outfit must meet all of the following qualifications:
1. Hot without appearing desperate
2. Cute and sassy without appearing tacky
4. Must show muscles
I think I have a cute little black jersey dress that will do...I just worry it will be too much. I am too much sometimes without a too much dress.
So let me ask you guys. The smartest people I know. If you were going to a support group and there was a presenter about the band who was 2.5 years out, what would you like to know? Is there something you would want to ask but not have the nerve?
