I Lost but Someone Will Gain Giveaway
Those of you that regularly read my blog know that last month I had to change the way I eat and what I eat. I didn't have much of a choice as my blood sugar was kind of wonky. So I have been on a Atkins like diet for the last 6 weeks. It's been hard at times as it gets sooo boring but I have managed to add something new that I can eat each week, to help keep me going on.
I guess I should have told you all that to make matters worse, I had applied for health insurance and was accepted conditionally... When I received the counter offer the insurance company seemed to think that I was obese because my BMI, body mass index, was above 30. Hmmm...I never thought of myself as obese! I knew I had gained some weight over the years, and needed to lose about 20-25 pounds but I never considered my obese.
Anyway, so in addition to my new diet plan, I started walking again. I walk most days about 2-2 1/2 miles. I started out slow adding 2 blocks to my walk a day. So far I have lost 12 pounds and my BMI is down to 28 and I am now officially just "overweight"! So I decided that I would have a giveaway to celebrate! I painted this cute bunny sign to giveaway.
So while I may have lost, someone else will gain...Anyway, the rules are simple..
1. You must be a follower of my blog (new followers welcome)
2. Leave a comment on this post only letting me know that you would like to enter.
3. You can post this on your blog sidebar to help my celebrate my loss if you so desire.
Winner will be drawn on March 10th.
I hope that you all decide to enter and help me celebrate my weight loss. I still have about 25 more pounds to lose and then I will be officially at "normal weight". Watch in a few days as a share my special treat that I get to eat on my diet!
