It’s Me in All You Magazine and A $25 Giveaway for You

I was contacted by All You magazine a few months ago about being part of a page they were doing on weight loss bloggers.

They asked me some questions about my weight loss and asked for some of my favorite weight loss tips. I sent them a few emails and some pictures and the magazine article came out Friday!

Even though I’ve been in magazines before for my weight loss, it is still exciting to see. I know that my weight loss success was from hard work but I also believe that part of my continued success at weight maintenance is because of the accountability I have by blogging, sharing my story at events, and coaching other people to lose weight.

Because of how you all help me, I am giving away two $25 VISA giftcards as a thank you for all your support throughout the past years.


Here are the rules. There will be two winners drawn at random on December 22, 2013 at 10:00 pm CST. I will notify the winners by email. If they do not respond within 48 hours, I will pick another winner(s) at random. Only people with US addresses are eligible.

Here is how to have three chances to enter. Please leave a separate comment for each chance.

1. Leave a comment. Any comment will do as long as it is nice. :)

2. Like Fit to the Finish on Facebook.

3. Subscribe to the blog/newsletter updates using the form right below. (When you subscribe you get to download my ePamphlet “25 Weight Loss Mistakes to Avoid.”)

That’s it! I may be in All You magazine this month, but I wanted to thank all of you for being there with me all year! Diane

The contest is closed. Thanks to everyone! The winners are Jeanette and Elizabeth! Congrats to both of you.
