Giveaway!!!

Hi, if you're new here, feel free to check out some of my older posts.  I've lost 50 pounds in the last 9 months and won't stop til I've lost 100 pounds!  Good luck with the giveaway!

I'm happy to announce a partnership with CSN Stores to bring you a $50 giveaway.  That's right, $50 off your online order!  If you order something $50 or less, it's free!  You could get some Corelle dishes, though you may want to opt for something a little more fitness related.  They've got a lot of cool fitness equipment. 

So here's how it works.  Do one of the things below, and I'll enter you in a drawing using random.org.  I'll announce the winner after the contest is over and if you win, you can email me with your contact info.  I just need your email address so I can get you the code for $50 off your order.  The contest will end next Thursday, September 9th at midnight.  I'll probably announce the winner the next day.

Here's what you need to do to enter (you can do just one thing or all five if you want):
1) Leave a comment.  Say anything you want to say.  Maybe a favorite post, or what's helped you to lose weight, etc.  You can even just say hi!  You can leave as many comments as you want, but I'll only count the first one toward the giveaway. - 1 entry

2) Leave a comment telling me what you would buy from CSN Stores with the $50 you win. Again, just one entry here will count. - 1 entry

3) Post a link to this giveaway on your blog.  Leave a link for me in the comments section so I can see the entry. - 2 entries

4) Tweet this giveaway.  You can just copy and paste from below.  - 2 entries

@100_Pounds is giving away a $50 gift certificate to CSN Stores.  Check it out here:http://bit.ly/aJ9EEu #100lbsgiveaway

5) Share the link for this post on Facebook. - 2 entries

That's it.  All you need to do.  I'll announce the winner next Friday.

Good luck!

  10. I would buy these awesome boots because I am trying to find a way to reward myself for my weight loss without eating (because we all know that celebrating equals eating...).

  15. So Andy and I haven't had a toaster since early July because one night it was storming really bad and we lost electricity. Well, the surge that came after didn't break anything in the house, except our toaster....

    So we've been looking at space saving toaster ovens since then.... Apparently there's no rush.. (except that our bagels would really like to be eaten and it takes FOREVER to toast a bagel in the oven..)

    So we'd probably buy one of those, if we found exactly what slow-poke decision-maker Andy wants.. :D

    ReplyDelete
  16. There are quite a number of items I would love from CSN . A wall clock to replace the 20 yr old one that just decided it doesn't want to work is one of the first things I need.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I need to lose 50 pounds. Everytime I start eating right, I get discouraged because it takes so long to even lose one pound--of course, it takes my husband one week to drop 8... How can I stay motivated with such slow progress?

    Anyway, thanks for a chance to win!

  23. I love the CSN store! Because my baby is due soon and we don't have very many/really any toys, I would buy something developmentally appropriate for it. :)

  31. I think my best tip is to eat what you want, in moderation. If you allow yourself a few bites, usualy that's enough to make you feel like you aren't depriving yourself. I loved fried chicken, but I can often ease cravings by putting just a little of it on a huge salad.

    ReplyDelete
  32. If I were fortunate enough to win I think I'd actually pick out a few toys for my ltitle guys upcoming birthday.

  37. Hey dude! Awesome job getting re-motivated in your weight loss journey! My motivation tends to wax and wane, too. But reading about you getting excited to trade your car in for a bike or pledging to be active every day for a month? That gets me excited. And then I think, "Shoot, if Andrew can do it, then I can, too!" Your enthusiasm is contagious, friend!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I have been eyeing the Paula Deen 11" Square Griddle in red.

  39. My easiest way to lose a few pounds, no processed food. Only shopping for ingredients takes longer, but so worth it.

  49. I need to lose about 30 pounds. I became a pescatarian nearly 5 months ago. That alone should allow me to lose weight. Unfortunately I still eat too much junk food and sugar, so I've actually gained a pound or two! Dang it!

    Good luck with your final 50 or so!

  77. Oh, and if I won $50 to a CSN store, I'd probably put it toward a new carseat for my baby. She's pretty much outgrown her infant car seat and she's only 6 months old! :) I've never purchased anything from a CSN store, but it looks awesome!
