Day 1,246 In Pictures

Day 1,246

In Pictures

The outpouring of support for my book has been absolutely incredible and a true blessing to me on many different levels. "Thank you" doesn't seem like enough to say, really. Trust when I say, "thank you," it comes from a very sincere place in my heart.

Instead of writing a regular blog post, I thought I'd simply let the pictures tell the story of the last few weeks (of course--I may feel the need to add a caption or two...or several along the way).

Custom signed first edition copies are available directly from me by visiting www.transformationroad.com You can also order from Amazon.com or any bookstore can order it for you. My local bookstores, Brace Books and More in Ponca City, OK and Hastings in Stillwater, OK have copies on the shelf. Brace has plenty of signed copies. Also--Ereader editions are available from Kindle, Nook, KOBO, Sony Ereader, and iPad iBooks.

So--here we go...The last few weeks: In Pictures...

Dave Deken of Deke Media snapped this picture on the day of my hometown book signing. I was offering a rare serious pose--although, moments after--I'm pretty sure we all cracked up laughing as a result.

My dear sweet momma. I love her dearly.

With Rachel--aka "Cinnamon" I've known Rach since high school--in fact, she's mentioned in the book.

My grandma with me at my hometown signing...This, wow...an incredible blessing to me.

Aunt Kelli--who is responsible for many of these pictures! Thank you Kelli!

With my girlfriend Kelly at Hastings Signing.

Kelly is much more than a girlfriend. She's been a true blessing in the organizational development of my start-up company "505 Industries."

One of my favorite things to do is discuss the mental dynamics I've employed along the way with wonderful people like this customer at Hastings.

Photobucket
The very first person in line at Hastings was a very special blast from the past. I knew her as Mrs. Schlimpert when she was my first grade teacher at Pleasant View Elementary School. Today, the lovely Mrs. Janis Davis is a retired educator. She's the teacher who taught me how to read and write...and now she's buying my book...what a cool moment, indeed. Thank you Mrs. Schlimpert!! (I can't help it--it feels strange to call her anything else.)

At the Stillwater YMCA speaking about weight loss at the very Y where I attended summer day camp as a child.

YMCA Book Signing after the speaking event. It was amazing to have so many loving family members attend this event. It was the first time any of them have had a chance to see me speak about weight loss. Looking over and seeing their wonderful faces during the event--was a beautiful moment, indeed.

Photobucket
With my dear Aunt Connie! Aunt Connie and her incredible cake baking talents are talked about early in the book. It was so incredibly awesome to have her here with us!!

Coming soon--another video from Deke Media of my homecoming weekend. Also coming soon: Although I constantly say "It's not about the food," I'm always asked about what I enjoy eating--in that spirit, I'll soon post a blog full of food pictures, descriptions, and calorie values--Including food pictures of my recent trip to Olive Garden, where I enjoyed the dining experience for slightly over 600 calories. In this upcoming blog post--I'll also offer tips and tricks for getting the most bang for your calorie "buck" even at a place like Olive Garden!

I can't thank you enough for your support. It's allowing me to pursue my truest passion--and that passion is writing and speaking about all of the elements, philosophies, and fundamentals I've discovered and developed along my transformation road. I'm always learning, growing--and constantly giving thanks for the incredible blessings. Your support is a treasured gift to me. Thank you!

If you ever have a question for me--just send it my way: sean@transformationroad.com And I'll get back to you right away.

And I would be honored to have you as a facebook friend! You can find me here: www.facebook.com/seananderson505

The facebook page for the book can be found here: www.facebook.com/transformationroad

My best always, my friends--Goodnight and...

Good Choices,
Sean

  1. Sean, I bought the Kindle version of your book. I'm kind of disappointed though because I would have liked a signed copy with a message to me. Maybe I'll still get one! I remember once you said to me "Fight". Those words have stuck in my head over and over. I'm now down 22 pounds and am getting into the swing of it. Just to let you know I only read your book while on my stationary bike. I ride for 30 minutes every day. I'm quite enjoying the book, having a few chuckles, and a few tears. Looking forward to the next pages, keeps me motivated and cycling. Thank you Sean, I am fighting.

  2. I have read your book, and I throught it was very honest and informative. I am planning to read it a second time. Thanks for sharing your experiences with obesity and your long road out of the nightmare. You are helping many people.

  3. It's always so nice to see pictures of you and your family, thanks! Normally, I would not mention it, because it's absolutely none of my business, but I am so very happy to tell you this: YOUR SUIT IS TOO BIG. Take some book proceeds, head over to Joseph A. Bank, and let them help you make some "good choices" about a new, nicely-fitted suit. There are wonderful sales on right now! (I Googled -- they have stores in Tulsa, OK City, and Wichita.) Then, more pictures!

  4. Wonderful pictures of you and your family Sean. I feel that I know them all from your book. You have made me smile and laugh, shed a tear or two and made me sob. Your story is amazing, so much so I am reading it over again. Thank you so very much for writing with such honesty and honour.

    Love and very best wishes

  5. I totally enjoyed all the photos here! After having followed you ON the journey, it's a wonderful thing to see the "rest of the story" of your new life now, in the photos. So thank you so much for sharing them.

    And my favorite? I found it so touching that the very teacher that taught you to read and write is now buying YOUR book! Amazing, just amazing.

  7. Sean...loved the pictures. You and Kelly make a gorgeous couple! I cannot believe I don't have your book, but I have been under the weather for a few months now and have been out of the house very little. I cannot wait to get it and hopefully when I do, I will feel up to reading it, because once I start, I won't want to put it down. I am sooooooo happy for you! All of your dreams are coming true and the best is yet to come...I know it:)

  8. These pictures are wonderful Sean. You are a walking testimony that change is indeed possible for any of us. I've talked to so many people who have read your book now and every one of them said it touched a nerve with them because you said so perfectly what all of us have thought, felt or gone through during our life. So if you can do this, we all have hope. I started the 2nd half of my journey down on Jan. 1 after sitting at that half way point for several years now. I'm down 21 pounds with about 80 left to lose. I feel so encouraged and it truly is about an inside change coming first. That started in me when I read your book. It just made sense for the first time. Thank you Sean. Shirley Madewell
