Kroger Family of Stores Pound for Pound Challenge & *GIVEAWAY*

Congratulations to Comment #13 Mari. The Giveaway is now closed!  Thanks to everyone who entered!
     I have been a plus sized woman most of my adult life.  I have tried a little bit of everything to lose weight, but each time, I'd gain it right back.  This cycle was very frustrating and eventually, I just stopped trying. 

     My parents began watching the Biggest Loser last season, and they encouraged me to watch it.  When the new season began, I started watching and I became hooked.  The show is encouraging to me, because I know that if these people can lose weight, I CAN LOSE WEIGHT!  Watching the struggles they go through motivates me to go on, even during my darkest times. 


     The Kroger Co. Family of Stores, General Mills, NBC's hit TV Show "The Biggest Loser" and other key sponsors are partnering to donate up to $1,080,000 to Feeding America this year.  Feeding America is the nation’s leading domestic charitable hunger-relief organization.  Would you like to help?  All you have to do is visit www.pfpchallenge.com/Kroger to make your pledge to lose weight.  You can also get more information on the challenge and to find tools to change your life for the better. It is free, easy and only takes a minute to make a change that can help you and help the hungry in your local community.  Through June 30, 2010, for every pound you pledge to lose, the Pound For Pound Challenge will donate 14¢ to Feeding America.  That is enough to deliver one pound of groceries to a local food bank!

     I pledged to lose 50 pounds!  YES, I said 50 pounds!  I'm very serious about losing the weight and my pledge will provide 50 pounds of food to the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina, which is located at 3808 Tarheel Drive, Raleigh, NC 27609.  Do you have a few pounds to lose?  Want to make a difference in someones life?  Pledge to lose some pounds and help out people who are less fortunate that you are! 

     As the official supplier of the Biggest Loser Ranch and partner of the Pound for Pound Challenge, the Kroger Family of Stores wants to help you achieve your goals. If you´ve ever watched of the Biggest Loser, you may have seen several great General Mills products featured on the show. These products, including Yoplait Greek yogurt, Total, and Multigrain Cheerios, are available at your local Kroger Family of Stores and can help you stick to your weight management plan.  The Kroger Family of Stores includes Kroger, Fred Meyer, Ralph´s, King Soopers, City Market, Dillon's, Smith´s, Fry´s, QFC, Baker´s, Owen´s, Jay C Food Stores, Hilander, Gerbes, Food4Less, Pay Less Super Markets and Scott´s Food & Pharmacy.  Which of these Kroger Family of Stores is near you? 

                                       Giveaway
