Win a Copy of The Spark!

CLOSED: Congrats to Feoshia, Carla & Big Lug Jay!  They were our winners!



I've mentioned before that I am a big fan of SparkPeople, the online site that specializes in helping people achieve a healthier lifestyle.

I first discovered the site back in 2006, and have returned everytime I've needed help getting back into shape and back on the dieting bandwagon.

In December, SparkPeople released it's first book, The Spark, that promotes a 28-day plan for losing weight, getting fit, and improving your lifestyle. I am getting ready to read the book, and to celebrate the launch, we here at Cincinnati Losers have three copies of The Spark to giveaway!

About The Spark:

My favorite weight loss tip is don't give up! If you slip up and eat a doughnut, take an extra walk around your neighborhood. Just keep going. Eat less and move more!

* You can find me at "flyergal" on SparkPeople.
* I'm now an "official follower" of the Cincinnati Losers!
* And one weight loss tip I'm trying is making the switch from soda to water - I've made it 3 days so far!

Thanks & good luck to all on their journeys!

I just found your blog and am now a follower.
I'm also trying the tip of cutting out all soda.

My favorite weight loss tip is to be creative in cutting calories! If it means using light sour cream, having one less cookie, or substituting chicken for beef, I think it's fun to see how I can make my meals healthier without making it taste-less! :)

My favorite weight loss tip is to keep sweets, junk food, out of the house. Too tempting!

-I Tweeted the tweet
-finally added y'all to my blogroll.
-My best advice is drink water. Lots and lots of water. Even switching from soda to fizzy water.

- My favorite weight-loss tip is to fill up on water and lots of vegetables - try to get into the habit of mindlessly snacking on carrot sticks and green beans instead of potato chips.

A lot of people have mentioned switching soda for water - if you drink on weeknights or nonspecial occasions, consider trading in your booze for club soda with lime. It's calorie-free and still feels like a treat.

- One of my favorite weight-loss-related websites is Cheap Healthy Good - it's full of light recipes and interesting links about the state of food (and frugality) today.

- I tweeted about this contest earlier this week!
