Chicken Soup for the Soul ~ Shaping the NEW You Giveaway

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Shaping the New You: 101 Encouraging Stories about Dieting and Fitness... and Finding What Works for You (Chicken Soup for the Soul (Chicken Soup for the Soul))

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Shaping the New You: 101 Encouraging Stories about Dieting and Fitness is a great book to read to start out the 2011 year.  


No one likes to diet, but this book will encourage and inspire readers with its positive, practical, and purposeful stories 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, will motivate any reader looking to start fresh or needing a boost. This is a great book for anyone embarking on a healthier lifestyle.


What I love about this particular book is it is filled with true stories.  I want to hear about other people just like me, looking to get into shape.  Not a fitness trainer with no kids :)  Chicken Soup for the Soul: Shaping the New You is filled with 101 weight loss SUCCESS stories that shows a variety of weight loss solutions.  From cooking at home, working out at home or at the gym, choosing wisely while eating out, getting fit outdoors, using dvds for success and so much more.  


The stories are both inspirational but full of tips that are both practical and specific at times.  I have to say this is my favorite Chicken Soup for the Soul book yet.  It isn't just inspiration, but there is actual content in this book to help you out beyond the motivation factor.
