Hi everyone. I thought I would take a break from the Celebrity Kid Recipe contest to give a shout out to my own cooking and health inspiration (aside from my mom), Richard Simmons. I have mentioned Richard on my blog before because his intimate discussions with women’s obstacles to losing weight back in the seventies and eighties planted a seed in me. I was chubby and he gave me hope.
I partially attribute my becoming a social worker to the Sims himself. He was such a good listener and really seemed like he cared, sitting cross legged on the floor, asking difficult questions in such a gentle manner.
I think that my finding the above crinkled up photo of Richard , found on the street while I was walking my dog, is a sign. I want to meet Richard Simmons. Can someone help me do that? I want to tell him what an impact he had on me, a chubby elementary school kid.
Do you think Richard will come on my blog to talk to all the kids about the importance of home cooked meals?
Is someone on Linkedin with me or with you who has a connection to Richard Simmons? Who will help me get in touch with Richard Simmons?
I look forward to showing you our next Celebrity Kid Chef in the next post. Stay tuned….
