I've been on goodreads.com for a year and a half, but I only recently became clued in to their book giveaways. What's better than winning a free book?!? (Well, maybe some other things, like winning the lottery or a free vacation or a car or...)
Anyway, my publisher has donated 10 copies of How We Did It in a giveaway that starts today and runs through February 15. Click here to go to the giveaway page. If you haven't read it yet, here's your chance. Good luck! Hope you win.
Even if you don't win a copy of the book, you're a winner anyway. The first step to losing weight is to start thinking about losing weight. Todd Peterson, one of the guys in my book who lost 105 pounds after hiring a personal trainer, said he began to think about losing weight when he was on business trips and saw his boss and co-workers in the hotel fitness room running on the treadmill before breakfast. It made him think about his habits -- habits like sleeping late, skipping breakfast and pounding the all-you-can-eat buffet at lunch.
Todd knew those habits weren't working for him, but he didn't know what to do about it before personal trainer Derek Curtice of SimpleFit in Memphis, Tennessee, showed him the way to health and fitness. "Derek more than gave me my life back," Todd says. "He gave me a whole new life!"
Start thinking about your own habits. My biggest one was the need to start moving intentionally... in other words, exercise. Dreaded that word all my life! I still wish it weren't in my vocabulary, but I know without a doubt that my 30-pound loss comes down to the laps I swim three times a week. That's what worked for me!
What habits do you think you might have to change?
