Give-away: Progresso Soup Gift Pack




It is that time of year.

The time when the majority of Americans list their resolutions for the new year. Losing weight tops most lists. I know it is at the top of mine.

Progresso wants to help us achieve our weight-loss goals and has provided Olive Plants readers the chance to win a gift pack of Progresso soups and to enter a contest for a make-over trip to New York City.

Three grand-prize winners will be chosen in the SouperYou Contest and will receive airfare to NYC, accommodations for 2 for 3 days and 2 nights, a head-to-toe makeover from a stylist, and a $1000 wardrobe shopping spree. Pretty exciting, huh? You cannot enter the SouperYou Contest here at Olive Plants. Instead, visit the SouperYou site for all the details and to enter.

What you can win here is a fabulous Progresso gift pack. One Olive Plants reader will receive two cans of Progresso soups, a digital jump rope, and a large Progresso mug, perfect for your 100 calories or less lunch!



As the hostess of this giveaway, I received 15 cans of Progresso soups, along with the jump rope and mug, and have really enjoyed the package. There are so many 100 calories or less soups to chose from. 40 to be exact. It makes for a warm, filling lunch that only uses 1 of my diet points, sometimes 0! If you can't wait to give Progresso Light a try, you can find coupons here.

To enter the give-away I am hosting, comment on this post with your best diet tip.

You can earn additional entries by:

  • following me on twitter (@Homeschooldawn)
  • tweeting about this give-away
  • posting about this give-away on your own blog
  • subscribing by email to Olive Plants
  • following Olive Plants


Please leave a separate comment for each entry and provide links to your posts.

This contest ends on Friday, January 15, 2009 (11:59 p.m. EST). I will use random.org to select the winner on Saturday, January 16.

Happy Eating, Commenting, Tweeting, Posting, etc.!

Dawn

I received the Progresso gift pack from Progresso through My Blog Spark for free in order to review the product, promote the SouperYou Contest, and provide one gift pack for my readers. I have received no other compensation and have provided my honest opinion of Progresso soups and related products.

Well, I think I only technically get one entry, since I already followed your blog and on twitter, but I did RT on twitter on Saturday. It was my first RT!

I can't think of a diet tip. (smiles)

Don't drink any calories. I try to stick to tea! :)

A diet trip I just read is to fill up on "liquid foods" with a high water content like soup or salad. Even if the food is mostly water, it will fill you up, but drinking liquids won't.

Very simply - don't diet. lol! But seriously, diets by themselves don't work in the long run. Instead, you need to make lifestyle changes that you can stick with for life.

Thanks to everyone who entered today!

Devildogwife great advice. I think I like the idea of not dieting best. :)

Great giveaway! I think my best diet tip is to plan to have some indulgence still. The best I've ever done with weight loss, we had a "free day" every Sunday. I could eat anything! At first, I had way too much, but gradually (a month or so), I didn't want to undo all the hard work I was doing the rest of the week. So instead I'd plan out my one real treat, whatever that might be, and otherwise eat fairly close to my new normal. Even with Weight Watchers, which was successful too, I planned those extra points as a bit of a splurge day. I found it easier to give up/change all the little stuff when I knew at least one day a week I'd still get to have lasagna or some potato chips or a candy bar... guilt free.

I think the best dieting tip(s) boils down to portion control and exercise.
