Heather discusses her problems with Ramona.

Wowza! Well, here we go!!!

Kicking off the season, I was genuinely excited to meet the Sonja's friends at her party, but had no idea what I was about to walk in on. . .

These ladies were still dealing with issues from the past, and we new girls hit the ground running. 

After fussing over the slip that I wore from my line at the party, I decided to invite Ramona (who I had met briefly in the halls of HSN) to come up to my office to see what my brand, Yummie by Heather Thomson (yummielife.com) was all about. Although, we never quite get into the collection! 

Since you didn't get to hear how I started my brand, here is the short version: After the birth of my little guy Jax, (who had a really rough start into this life to say the least), I went to the shapewear department to boost my confidence and whittle my middle. I didn't want people feeling sorry for me. Believing that looking good is feeling good (and the reverse), I wanted to attack the deflated inner tube my very large pregnancy had left around my middle. I was frustrated by the options then available to me, so I took matters into my own hands and created my patented three panel tank that quickly became a feel good, look good solution for women everywhere!

Trying to share this story with Ramona triggered her to go into her experience regarding the forceps delivery she had with the birth of her daughter, Avery. Any woman who has a less than stellar experience at childbirth has my full attention, but it was a little hurtful that Ramona never actually took the time to hear me out. Needless to say, there wasn't much sharing going on in this meeting.
