GIVEAWAY: Choose You from the American Cancer Society

Choose You American Cancer SocietyIt’s New Year’s resolution time! We all know that keeping resolutions is the tough part. So many women put others ahead of themselves, which is a fast way to derail personal fitness goals. The consequences can be more serious than you think: according to the American Cancer Society, 50 percent of cancer deaths could be prevented if women maintained a healthy weight through diet and regular exercise, avoided tobacco products and got recommended cancer screenings.

That’s why the American Cancer Society is helping women stick to their healthy habits with a new program, Choose You. Goal-setting and social support are important components to making a healthy lifestyle change, and now you can get both by logging into to The site is full of advice, resources and also connects you with evens in your area.

One is a workout tee-shirt and a Choose You pin, and the other prize pack is a workout kit featuring a pedometer/calorie counter, a jump rope and a resistance band.

I am diabetic and don't do what I am supposed to do in order to stay healthy. I need to start counting my carbs right, eating less sugar, and checking my bloodsugar levels more often.

I need to seriously cut back on the sweets.

I need to make sure I eat fewer snacks, especially the sweet kind!

I have started 2011 with my mind set to lose weight. I have been going to a zumba class and love it. I would love to winner this.

My friends and I have started a long term weight loss competition. Just the impetus needed for me to start taking MUCH better care of myself. Healthful food and portion choices, working out during my lunch breaks. Making the time to take care of myself. It's a good feeling and all part of the best life ever.

I am taking time out for me now. I need to think about my life an to worry more about my health an what will help me live longer so i can make a difference other peoples lives as i do now.

Just taking more time for myself by scheduling workouts. I promised myself last year that I would workout more, and I'm really proud of myself that I stuck to it. I've also involved my oldest son who is six. We've run in a few 5ks together and he's loving running.

I need to make more time to exercise and find some activities that are fun to do. Thank you for the giveaway!

I work online and am sitting all day. My plan is to take 1/2 hour a day to do some sort of indoor workout. Once the weather warms up here, I would like to bike ride or walk.

This is amazingly in line with my New Year's resolution which is to take 10-15 minutes every morning and start the day off by meditating, thinking positive thoughts and giving myself some quiet time! : ) Already I feel the results in my day.

I need to stop buying sugary unhealthy snacks for my children and replacing those with healthier snack choices and start eating healthier myself to show them that it's a good thing to lose the "bad for you" foods! Not only will this help me, but my children as well, and hopefully they will see that when it comes to your health, you MUST put yourself in #1 position!

I have realized that I spend way too much time on Facebook and doing sedentary things. So, I decided to "earn" my sedentary pleasures. For every minute 5 minutes that I am active, I earn 1 minute playing on Facebook. Then I use an egg timer to make sure I don't go over my allotted time. :)

I need to exercise more and not use the weather as an excuse.

I just need to be more motivated to work out. I always feel better after but it's hard to be consistent.

My need is to join the just say no program. I am the poster child for this program here. I always hear someone elses needs and wants and cater to them instead of putting my health and weight loss journey first. That is exactly what got me at 300 lbs. I MUST turn this 180. I am moving end of this month and will be staying where there is a treadmill and will be the deciding voice on food that enters the house. Therefore I have no excuse not to put me first. Be disciplined and get moving/ cooking right and this can happen for me at home. Then I can conintue to help others like I so love to do but as an inspiration and story for others to change their lives. I have realized in some areas you can not help others until you first help yourself.

If I can just convince myself to turn away from sweets more often, I'll be further along on my way. I've already lost 40 pounds (last year).

I have chosen me by committing to walking and portion control. A New Year beans turning over a new leaf, only I can make the difference for me.

I need to avoid soda!

I just need to make time to exercise

posted Jan 3rd, 2011 7:45 am


I am choosing to cut back on the sweet stuff and to move more...not for weight reduction but for general health.

I'd choose to make time for exercise every morning and say no to other distractions.

I will choose me in 2011 by not sweating the small stuff and sweating more in general (via exercise).

I think you have to reach a point where you put yourself and your health first and making healthier lifestyle choices

posted Jan 2nd, 2011 1:40 am


I would choose me by eating at home more often. With busy schedules I am always tempted to eat out. This year I would like to prepare more healthy meals at home.
