Paying it forward...

Remember how I told you guys that I won the diet bet I entered last month? (Even though I forgot to tell y'all that I entered in the first place...)

I found out that my winnings total nearly $60. (The buy-in was $35.) And I was telling a friend at work (shout out, Meredith!) that I wanted to try and find a way to pay it forward to others who may need a source of motivation. Because, seriously, you guys. I could never adequately convey how much your support has motivated me to keep going on the hard days. And though I'll never be able to really repay you for what you've done for me, I wanted to make a gesture anyway.

So here's what I came up with.

I'm giving away three copies of It Starts with Food by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig.*

This book was the thing that convinced me that I needed more than a diet. I needed more than weight loss. I needed to change the way I eat, and I needed to change the way I look at food.

So if you're where I was just a few months ago, desperate for a change and unsure how to get there, this book is for you.

I don't want to deal with a complicated giveaway today, because this is not at all about increasing my blog readership or numbers. This is about YOU! And how much I adore you all.

So the first three people to comment below win.

That's it.

(Just make sure and include your email address below so I can get a hold of you.)

Love you guys.

* This isn't sponsored by Whole30 or the Hartwigs. Like, at all.

This book is fantastic. I'm a junk food girl at heart--but it's definitely changed how I look at food, how I prepare food, and what I'm feeding my husband. I'm aware of ingredients more than I ever was before! I even made my own taco seasoning the other night because the packet that I had was scary with how many ingredients I couldn't pronounce! You're so wonderful for paying it forward. You are an absolute inspiration and I'm so glad this journey is working for you!! Love you!
