I’m so excited! I was starting a Draft for the Ultimate Blog Party earlier this week & wanted to have a giveaway. Because let’s face it – the UBP is fun & a great way to meet bloggers, but like any other party it’s all about the door prizes!!! I wanted to giveaway something that any woman would LOVE to win. The first thing that came to mind was an easy way to lose 20 lbs! And I have the secret – and no, I’m not going all OPRAH crazy on you!
I, like many other Americans, made the most popular resolution of all time – to lose weight! And on January 4th I started a diet plan that’s really been working. I’ve never dieted before. Notice I didn’t say “I’ve never needed to diet before” … oh no, no, no. Just that I’ve never chosen to actually do it. I’m not good at giving up stuff – I think that’s why I never started drinking or smoking. If I had to give up chocolate like someone trying to kick a smoking or drinking habit I would seriously go into withdrawals & shocks!!! I also go back to my childhood. There were SO many things that I gave up on. Piano, Flute, Basketball, Cheerleading, Ballet, and the list goes on! So to this day I can do a little bit of alot but not one thing can I do incredibly well – seriously!! In some alot of ways, I’m scared to start something new because I absolutely HATE the thought of failure!! Diets included.
So once I decided this was the year, I looked into a couple options. And I got really lucky. I picked the right book & the right plan. It was well written, super easy to follow – no counting involved!!! And had great recipes & common sense for a life plan.
And the result? Eight weeks into it & I lost 20 lbs!! Yipee!
So back to the giveaway & why I’m so excited. I wish I could say that myself & my blog were so popular that this company contacted me … but that’s just not true. So instead, I contacted the company & asked if they’d be interested in me giving a copy of the book away on their behalf. And they said yes!
SO – come back on Friday for the UBP to find out what it is & for you chance to win!!
