Never Say Diet! Big Giveaway!

You may remember that I blogged about this book, Never Say Diet by Chantel Hobbs, last year in May. Here's the link if you want to check out my short review.

Now I have two copies, yes, two copies, to give away, and I am also giving away the companion book, The Never Say Diet Personal Fitness Trainer

And I will give the two books away together. I think you'll really enjoy them, if you're trying to lose weight, and it seems everybody is! I know I am! I have to! Unless I want to go on high blood pressure medicine, and no I don't!!!

The companion book is sort of like a 16-week workbook, which includes a scripture for the week. It has meal suggestions and even recipes, and it leads you through your daily exercise routine. It's full of great pep talks, too! I think you'll love this author's straightforward style, and the fact that she knows how it feels to be 200 pounds overweight and out of control with her eating, and she knows how it feels to look and feel great. And she'd rather feel great! And so will you!

So leave a comment if you wish to be included in the drawing!

I have just started on a new program this year and am watching what I eat and need to lose about 50 lbs. Would love to get entered in the drawing.

This sounds like a wonderful book. Every year I seem to put on a couple new pounds that don't go away. Now I have a closet full of clothes that either I can't get into or if I can, they are very uncomfortable. Right now I'm thankful for my stretch jeans.

Forget the fiction--if I ever needed to win a book, this is it! I've had this area under control for years and got sort of complacent about it. Then I added three pounds one year, and four the next, and so on until...well, let's just say I need the books, okay?

Lucie said...

I would love to win these books! I need to lose weight and do not want to develop diabetes (I am borderline) so I really need to. I have never heard of this author before so it would be good to have some fresh ideas :-)

I keep hearing about this book! A friend and I were just talking about diets and the endless cycle.

I would like to see this book, so throw my name into the drawing.

Thank you, Melanie, for such a generous offer!


Rose McCauley said...

sounds like a great book and I could use it with my online group of friends from college days who are all trying to lose weight! I send a weekly devotional for our group and the last one I sent mentioned how First Place (a Christian plan for weight-loss/healthy eating) calls it a "live-it" plan so this book sounds like it would fit right in. Thanks for making me aware of it. crmcc at setel dot com

Yes! Enter me in the drawing. Everyone I know wants to loose some weight. LOL. Looks like a good book too!

Deborah Matthews said...

Sounds like a good book. Thank for giving one away, Melanie

Vickie McDonough said...

This sounds like a book I could really use. I'm working hard to lose weight and could use some help.

Linore Rose Burkard said...

"Never Say Diet?" Sounds good to me!
Well, Melanie, you just can't seem to stop giving away books, huh? : )
(And don't we love you for it!)
The books sound intriguing.

I've been listening to Chantel on Focus on the Family. She inspires me! I'd love to win this set! Please enter me in the drawing. If I do her program and have success, I'll let you know!

Carrie Turansky said...

Hi Melanie,
I've read a few interviews with the author, and I would love to read her book. Please enter me in the drawing.

Margie Vawter said...

I'd like to get off the blood pressures meds! Need to lose about 35-40 lbs. to do that, though. And though I've been trying for a while now, it doesn't seem to want to budge. Sigh. Please enter me in your drawing. :)

I would love to be included in the drawing. Thanks so much.

All I can say is that my need is as universal as everyone who's already commented! Whoever gets the books - all the best with the program. For the rest, which may well include me, hope your own program *works*.

Inspire said...

Melanie, please include me in the contest. I've been struggling to lose weight for years. Right now I'm on Slimfast, which doesn't seem to do anything except keep feeling hungry. I'm glad these books are geared toward getting healthy. That is what is important. Hollywood and the media push the bone-thin woman on everyone, and that can be just as dangerous as being over weight.

These books by Chantel Hobbs were meant for me. I have battled the bulge my entire life and still I continue to monitor everything I put in my mouth. Yes, I need help and I would love to have Never Say Diet and the workbook to help me. Thanks to Chantel for writing them.

I'm back on my program . . . the long journey continues. I could use the inspiration from this book along the way, so I'd love to be entered in the drawing.
