Chicken Soup For Soul: Shaping the New You...Review & Giveaway!

We all have fitness and health goals don't we?  I know I certainly do and I also know I can use all the inspiration I can get!  When I heard about a new offering from Chicken Soup for the Soul:  Shaping the New You, I knew it would be a great read for most anyone I know.  Here is the scoop...

101 Encouraging Stories about Dieting and Fitness... and Finding What Works for You
No one likes to diet, but the personal stories in this book will encourage and inspire readers with its positive, practical, and purposeful tales of dieting and fitness. Readers will find hope, help, and hints on getting fit and staying healthy in these 101 stories from those who have been there, done that, and maintained it. Stories about wake-up calls and realizations, moving more and eating better, self-esteem and support, and lifestyle changes, big and small, will motivate any reader looking to start fresh or needing a boost. This is a great book for anyone embarking on a healthier lifestyle.

I shared this my friend and fellow blogger, Colleen, and she was happy to give her take on it...

I don’t know many people who have never worried about their weight, been on a diet or tried to be healthier. These are issues most people deal with throughout their lives. There are so many books out there to “help” you be a better you so I was skeptical to read yet another. The difference with this book is that it’s written by real people and not fitness gurus and doctors.


Shaping the New You has 101 stories that cover many aspects of diet and weight loss. There are stories about going to the gym, stories about willpower and stories about temporary setbacks. One of my favorites was written from a treadmill’s point of view, it was right on.


One of the things that I love most about this book is that you don’t have to sit down and read it cover to cover to get motivated. You can read a story or two here and there to keep you on the right track. I’ll definitely keep this book around to read for a quick pick me up on the days that the M&M’s win out over the apples. 

Thanks, Colleen!  Sounds great, doesn't it readers??  You can pick up your copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul:  Shaping the New You today on Amazon...

I have a workout buddy. We keep each other motivated. I also count calories. Some people don't like doing that, but I think it's kind of fun.

My tip. I leave a picture of me when I was heavier at the back door so that I have to look at it on the way out the door to remind me to eat right and exercise so to never look like that again

I like to meditate each morning and focus on losing the "bad" things in my body and replacing them with the good ones ... I keep healthy eating books all around the house and post tips on the fridge that way when I go for a snack I have to read why I should pick the healthy one :)
