the party continues - my first give-away!

I feel like I’ve been on a non-stop blog party all week! First losing 50 lbs, then getting a blog makeover – what’s next???

You guessed it – a give-away!

I was thinking over the weekend about how awesome you guys all are, and how, yes, I probably could have lost 50 lbs on my own but having a blog made it so much easier and more fun. And what’s a blog without people reading and commenting? You guys have made this process greater than I could have ever imagined – you’ve given me advice when I needed it, support when I needed it, and tough love when I needed it. You’ve cheered me on, and many of you have provided me with inspiration through your own blogs. I just love you guys!

Aw! Can we get a group hug????

But seriously, I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone, so I’m having my first give-away! Since my reward to myself for losing 50 lbs was a subscription to Cooking Light, I decided that’s what I would give to one of you guys!

So I’m giving away a one-year subscription to Cooking Light!

I love this magazine – the recipes are always amazing, and I always make at least a couple things. I like that the food is truly healthy, easy, and yet still classy. Nothing you’d be embarrassed to serve to guests. (i.e. no chicken dishes made out of cereal, baby food or diet coke.)

I know most of us are in dire need of new recipes, so to enter this contest, all you have to do is leave a comment telling me about a food / meal that you used to eat all the time and now are totally sick of. For me, it’s soup! I eat it every day at lunch and now I have to fight the urge to throw it across the room. YECH.

A couple of notes ...
- This contest is unfortunately open only to Canadian and US readers.

- I will draw the winner (via random number generator) at noon (EST) on Friday (July 31).

- And, just since there’s been so much talk lately about blog sponsorship and free products, I will mention that this is not sponsored in any way by Cooking Light! I just really like this magazine and am buying this subscription with my own pocket money!
