Really Big Announcement Number 1! My First Giveaway and a Great Cause!
Mood:  energetic

I told you that the next couple of days were going to be exciting, and I hope that you aren't disappointed.

You all know, from reading my homeschool product reviews, that Sarah and I are committed to healthy living. Like many people, we often fail, and need help and prodding from others. You also know that we are very dedicated to helping the less fortunate in our society and the world.

That's why I was so thrilled to hear about the Pound for Pound challenge. The Pound for Pound challenge is a unique program that fights hunger while helping you lose weight! How do they do it? First, you join the challenge by pledging to lose weight through exercise and healthy eating habits. For every pound that you lose, the Pound for Pound challenge will donate 14 cents - enough to buy one pound of food - to donate to Feeding America, the nation's leading charitable hunger-relief organization. Along the way, the folks from The Biggest Loser will give you weight loss tips, exercises, recipes...in fact, they will set up a whole weight loss plan for you to help you meet your goal! Such a deal! While you lose weight, others will benefit.

So, how can you take part in this great opportunity? Just click here or on any one of the hi-lighted links above to get to the Pound for Pound challenge website. To find out more about Feeding America just click here. Don't wait too long to decide, the Pound for Pound challenge ends June 30th. so enter today!

But that's not all! In order to help promote the Pound for Pound challenge, General Mills and Kroger, two of the other challenge sponsors, have promised two $30 Kroger gift cards. One for us to use and one to give away on my blog! You all know what great prices that Kroger has and what great products General Mills has. Now you can take advantage of both to help you lose weight and get into shape! Here's a list at all of the great places listed that you can use your gift card at:

Kroger, Fred Meyer, Ralphs, King Soopers, Fry's Food and Drug, Fry's Marketplace, Smith's Food and Drug, Smith's Marketplace, Dillons, QFC, Food 4 Less, City Market, Jay-C Bakers, Gerbes, Foods Co., Hilander, Pay-Less Supermarkets, Owen's, Scott's Food and Pharmacy, Kroger Marketplace, Fred Meyer Jewelers, Littman Jewelers, Barclay Jewelers

To enter the drawing, just do one (or all!) of the following. Please, when leaving comments, include your name and email so that I can contact you if you win.

1. Leave a comment below telling how you plan on losing your weight and/or getting back into shape (worth one entry).

2. Subscribe to my blog by clicking on the subscribe button at the end of this post and then leave a comment saying that you did (worth one entry).

3. Subscribe to my blog by clicking on the Networked blog button in the left column and then leave a comment saying that you did (worth one entry).

4. Become a fan on my Families Again Facebook page by clicking here and then leave a comment saying that you did (worth one entry).

5. Follow me in Twitter by clicking here and then leave a comment saying that you did (worth one entry).

6. Twitter or Facebook about this give-away and leave a comment with a link to the post(s) (worth one entry per day. Must make a separate comment each day).

7. Blog about this give-away and leave three comments saying that you did (worth 3 entries).

The drawing will be next Friday, June 11 so enter, tweet, facebook and blog quickly! Thanks.

As a member of Blogspark the great people from General Mills and Kroger sent me two gift cards. One for us to use and one to give away to promote the Pound for Pound challenge and Feed America on my blog.

And my weight loss plan is..whatever works, lol. I'm going to eat healthier...sadly waving farewell to Sonic tater tots for a season. Laughing

 

My Mom & I are going to check out something called T-Tap? And since I'm ex-military I'll do some pushups/situps as well. Except I'm aware that situps only works part of the muscles so I'll be throwing in other crunches as well.

Well, we just switched from a traditional western diet to a kosher one and we are hoping that helps us lose weight (well, mom and dad) and we are researching exercise regimes and scraping up the cash to order the one we are leaning towards.

This sounds like a great thing! I really need to lose weight, get in better shape, have been trying to figure out how to go about it! Hubby needs to lose weight and feel better, too. If I can actually figure out how this pound for pound challenge works, I think I'd really like to participate, if it isn't too late..... ;) (My oldest is into bicycling....I'd like to get into it, too, myself....but I can NOT ride a bicycle at this point!!)

Hi Tim

I'm a newbie from the Crew. Saw your plug to get us over here! ;)

I've been losing weight since going gluten free...sadly not why I went gluten free, but hey it's been good for me.

Blessings,

Trish
