A Giveaway!



Ooohhh - a Giveaway! First time on this blog! You have to go check out the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival! There are hundreds of giveaways on blogs. So much fun!

I am giving away to one random commenter: 2 Weight Watchers cookbooks; they are a few years old, but have plenty of great recipes, photos, and include the points for each recipe.


All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. Tips and encouragement for health and weight loss won't help your chances, but are greatly appreciated!! :)

This giveaway is only open to people in the U.S. (Sorry! - shipping...). I will do the random drawing on Thursday evening 7/31 and e-mail the winner. If the winner doesn't respond in 4 days, I'll choose a new winner.

Thanks for stopping by! I will even try to post a recipe or two from these cookbooks during the week.

Lisa :)

  7. Thanks for the giveaway. I could use the encouragement
    with these cookbooks...and your blog (I'm subscribing.) I try to remember it's a day-by-day journey...just do one thing today to get healthy. (Eat fruit, instead of chocolate. Oops! Surely I didn't say that.) Just kidding.

  15. I am eating Cheetos right now as I read this, so I don't know how much help I could be. The best tip I can offer (for when I am doing a good job of getting healthy) is walk, walk, walk! An active lifestyle is a must for a healthy one.

  17. More cookbooks are always helpful, especially when it comes to meal planning for 4. I did get that new Sienfield book, deceptively delicious, about cooking with purees, really interesting and cuts back a lot on the use of sugar. The chocolate chip cookies were a hit. :)

  18. I LOVE Weight Watchers, and as soon as I pop my baby out, I'm going back on the plan!

    My favorite weight loss tip is to drink a LOT of water! It's probably a placebo, but it always makes me feel a little more full!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  42. Eat your dinner on small plates, it helps with portion control.

    ReplyDelete
  43. My mom is on WW and would love these! I'll have to steal glances though to get some recipes for myself. As for my advice, I'm currently preggo, and am on the 'mini-meals' plan... which is actually healthier for everyone. Instead of 3 large meals a day, eat 6 mini-meals. I actually really like it. Thanks for the chance to win! laurachilton {at} hotmail {dot} com

    ReplyDelete
  44. I am currently going to WW and these books would be so helpful.

    My best tip is not to be so hard on yourself. It's OK to have that chocolate chip cookie. It doesn't mean you are a failure. Even if you eat 20 chocolate chip cookies - IT'S OK!!! Just pick yourself up, dust yourself off and keep on going.

    Thanks for the YUMMY giveaway.

  45. My tip is to have only healthy food in the house. When I want a treat I walk to the corner store. I have to really want the treat to take a walk.

    ReplyDelete
  46. What great cookbooks! My main tip I give everyone is that we all need to move for at least 30 minutes a day. I try to walk but sometimes just doing housework will count.

    Thank you for the wonderful giveaway you are having.

  64. I'm (secretly) trying to get hubby to lose weight...maybe this will do the trick!

    As for advice - get a walking buddy or just someone who will hold you accountable - write everything down or talk about it...knowing that your food habits aren't a secret will really make you think twice about what you eat ;)

    ReplyDelete
  66. This would be perfect as I'm getting ready to go back on WW to lose my last 20. I am also writing WW friendly recipes over at Blissfully Domestic and it would be great to have some new recipes to share. Thanks for a great giveaway!!

  69. I like your idea--cut back, but don't eliminate. When I first started losing weight (30 pounds) I cut out everything. But then I ran out of steam. Now I'm really struggling with those things.

    ReplyDelete

  75. I usually eat off of a small plate (dessert plate) so I won't put as much food on it -- it does help!
