(prizes provided by Slim- Fast) Remember way back ( about 6 days ago) I ran the video “Wow, you look amazing.” Well, I had plum forgot that the Slim Fast folks sent me that button with a package of their new drink to try.(tried to get more buttons, no dice folks)
Despite being married to Mr Top Chef judge I have a soft spot in my heart for Slim Fast. When I graduated from college and went home to live with my mom I also brought back with me
1) a Grateful Dead poster
2) a broken foam chair covered with an Indian muslin blanket
3) 20 extra pounds.
I always thought my parents did too good of a job on my self esteem because I thought I looked fantastic. One day I was in my mom’s kitchen and it suddenly hit me, “oh my god, I’m fat.”
I thought of Tommy Lasorda ( I was raised a Dodger fan…um, now not so much) and at the time he was the Slim Fast spokesperson. I thought, If Tommy can do it so can I!
So I drove down to Vons and bought a canister of the stuff. Back in the dark ages you had to mix the powder with non fat milk. I followed the plan , dutifully mixing my lunch in a plastic shaker at Pasadena City College where I was taking classes in broadcasting. I drank while I interned at stations. When I took a break from my part time job at a big department store, it rhymes with Sordntroms. I lost 10 pounds. Then I lost another ten pounds as I no longer had a keg hermitically sealed to my mouth.
This is not a sponsored post, because I’m not getting any cash for it. But, I thought I might not be the only one working a resolution to lose some L-B’s. So here is the deal…
1) Slim Fast asked me to try their new drink. They are ditching the can and have moved to the bottle. Looks like the yogurt drinks my kids gobble up. I will and tell you what I think
2) tell me your resolutions for the year and Slim Fast has given me some Sephora gift cards to give some lucky winners. Two people will get $50 Sephora gift cards Don’t ask me why they aren’t giving their product away, I asked, they aren’t. But, maybe your resolution is to make more of an effort with your face, so this could work with you.
Okay, got it?
Leave your resolutions and good luck!
I will randomly pick a couple of winners by Monday the 9th.
Some of you will win Sephora gift cards to spruce yourself up
I will email the winners, who will give me their address and said winners will come back and write something like “Yeah, I’m so glad I won.”
