I’m a Lose-r for Good with a Giveaway!

257 Comments 19193 views

I am HORRIBLE at keeping secrets. Horrible. Horrible. Horrible. So when Weight Watchers invited me to Los Angeles to the Lose for Good kick off event under the stipulation that I had to keep it secret until this week, I freaked. I mean seriously. How am I, the girl who gave her boyfriend (now the husband) his one year Anniversary gift a week early because she was so excited or the mom who wants to give her son each and every one of his Christmas presents as she buys them, suppose to keep wraps on an amazing trip to L.A. Where she was going to meet Jenny McCarthy, hang out with FaintStarLite AND have dinner with the CEO of Weight Watchers a secret?

Yeah… needless to say I slipped up a few times. :)

Thankfully now I have the green light to talk about anything from the trip. So let me let Jenny do what she does and fill you in on the campaign…

As for the actual trip. I had a BLAST. It was rough now that I have a job (red eye flight and straight into the office) but I had some RR time there and met the most amazing bloggers.

Here we all are with Ms. Jenny

A few other pictures from the event…

Here is Rebecca (@Laughitoff) and I

Ester and I with Arianne sneaking in (did not notice until just now.:)

And Dave, the CEO of Weight Watchers who might just be the tallest man alive. Note: I’m 5′ 9”

Dave CEO of Weight Watchers and Roni of RonisWeigh

My favorite part of the whole trip was watching the kids plant in the garden and learn about fresh foods. Something I’m super passionate about. You know, the whole GreenLiteBites thing and all. :)

For more information about the charitable organizations that were involved with the event check out…

On to this giveaway! In honor of this event, I’ve been granted 3 – three-month trial memberships for Weight Watchers (either online or in-person meetings)
to give to my readers. I don’t know how else to do it except a good o’ fashion random drawing. So if you’d like in, simply comment below and let me know. I’ll pick 3 random winners next week (Monday September 6 <– HOLY CRAP it’s September)

I "gotsta" run.. I took the day off work today for my walkthru and I have lots to do. We are closing Thursday on this new house! Yikes!!

I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Roni – I found your site by accident back in February and have been an avid reader all along. I picked up a Nike plus and started doing WW on my own – not going to meetings or anything. I found a couple of calculators and used Excel for keeping track of my points. I have heard that nothing beats being accountable to someone else though, and would love giving an official WW membership a shot.
    Thanks for sharing all that you do, the recipes and the personal stuff. Here’s to just trying to make healthy changes!

    August 31, 2009

    i want to nominate my sister Erin who is trying to lose weight after having a baby almost a year ago. she has had a really trying year, her baby has digorge syndrome and so she has spent many days, hours, and weeks by her baby’s side in hospital rooms. The baby is doing better but she still has some trouble that may be with her for a lifetime but my very brave sister has been so solid and brave that she is an inspiration to our family. I am so proud of her for being such a devoted wife and mother. I know this would help her to spend a little time taking care of herself and help her shed her baby weight.

    thank you roni! your the best and a true inspiration to all of us trying to loose weight!

    Roni –
    Please enter me into the give a way. I really need to get back into the routine of exercise. The eating is ok but as we all should know the weight will not come off or stay off unless there is exercise included. An online membership to WW would help to get my head back into the game.
    And hey, how cool was it to met Jenny!!!!! WOW what a secret.

    Shelley

    September 1, 2009

    Wow!!! You really have made a wonderful impact in the world. To be chosen to attend an event like that, you are awesome! Please don’t stop giving the rest of us encouragement. If it weren’t for your blogs, I would think I was the only one who struggles. It would be great to have a chance to attend WW again, but I understand that there are a lot more people who probably need it more. I would LOVE for you to give yourself away! You should come up with a weekend conference for all of us fans!!! What a great way to get motivated. Thanks for all of your encouragement Roni!!!!!!!!

    Annette

    September 1, 2009

    I would live to win. I was going to meetings and I loved it, but then my husband got laid off and we could not afford it. Thankfully he finally found a job, but I have not been able to go back to Weight Watchers just yet as we are still trying to recover. I have been trying to do it on my own, but I haven’t made any progress in months. A 3 month membership would really help me get back on track!

    Hi Roni,

    I totally found your site this week. I had gastric bypass in 2005 and lost over 100 pounds. Now that the magic bewitching hour is over…6 months to 18 months of loosing weight is over, I find myself gaining weight. I have gained back almost 30 pounds since December due to new medication.

    So, I thought, let’s see what google can find for me to help jump start me into action to loose weight the WWP way. It lead me to your amazing blog and WWP calculator. I started on Friday, without a calculator and over the weekend lost 1/2 pound. Then I started yesterday (Mon. 8/31) with the calculator. What a revealation.

    I am 50 years old as of 8/16/09 (woo hoo) and 5′ 0″ tall and weighed in at 210. Did the how many points per day on the other calculator and can have 24 points a day. Of course, I did this after eating 4 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for a morning snack…bad start to my day. Realized that I had just eaten 9.5 points in that one section of time!!! Oh my, do I need help.

    Today, I started out much better and am calculating each item even contemplating going in my mouth. Lunch was going to be a mini-sub sandwich from Oscar Myer…calculation 9.5 points. Choose instead a Health Choice Mix-it meal that was 4 points less for 5.5 points and allowed me a little cheat fix of Brussels cookie for 2.2 points. That still kept me under the 9.5 with just the sandwich.

    This is an exciting learning experience for me. My sister did very well on Weight Watchers and so that’s why I decided to go this route.

    I would love to be included in the drawing on 9/6/09 for membership from the contest going on.

    I just want to thank you for you insight weight loss and for your GreenLiteBites Blog too. There are some very good looking recipes on there that I will be trying as I go along on this journey. You are an inspiration!

    Hi Roni,
    I have been on and off diet plans for most of my life and have been following your site for about three years. I am 29 weeks pregnant with my first child and plan to continue to use this site and GreenLite Bites as inspiration to take off the post-baby weight and then some.
    The 3 month WW membership would really help me do that!

    I might email you later about tips on starting a BLOG – I’d love to get better on using technology to connect with others that have similar interests.

    Keep up the great work!

    Elaine

    September 1, 2009

    What a fabulous trip – you are right keeping a secret (especially one that big) would be hard. I would love to be included on the give away.

    I had belonged to WW last year, but had to stop going due to $$. Put back on 30 of the 40 I lost and now am back on again – down 8.1 lbs so far. Long way to go and the motivation of the meetings would help greatly.

    Thanks for making this opportunity available.

    Jill Zimmerman

    September 4, 2009

    Hello Roni- First of all, I love your websites! Second of all, I was a member of WW for almost a year, and I lost about 25 pounds during that time. Once my membership ended, my boyfriend of 6 years and I broke up, and a terrible tragedy happened in my family. My 10 year old nephew died unexpectedly. Needless to say, these two things, plus my WW membership ending threw a huge curveball in my weight loss journey. I have gained some of the weight back, but I really would love to be back at WW b/c I was so successful when I was attending the meetings! I really would feel so very grateful if I was chosen. I appreciate your consideration, and keep up the great work. You are a true inspiration! <3
