Kroger $30 Giveaway

In a somewhat different blog posting (but don’t worry this isn’t going to be a regular event) I have a giveaway for one of my readers.

Kroger is one of the sponsors for the Pound for Pound Challenge – a US wide version of the Biggest Loser. You can go to to sign up and pledge the amount of pounds you will lose by the end of June 2010. For every pound pledged, 14 cents will be donated to Feeding America which is enough to deliver one pound of groceries to a local food bank.

Unfortunately I only heard about it two weeks ago and it expires at the end of the month but I’d like to lose a bit of weight – my target goal is to lose 11 pounds – probably not healthy to do this in 4 weeks but that is my final goal no matter how long it takes me – after that it’s another 10 pounds but that is another story 😉

So far (depending on the time of the day) I think I’ve lost about 4 pounds so I have some way to go 😉

Anyway, as part of the event I will have a $30 gift card to give away to one lucky reader – just leave a comment on this blog post and one lucky winner will be drawn at random on the 26th June (contest closes midnight on Friday). I’ll contact you via email to get your address details so please ensure your email is correct (it will not be displayed on your comment). If you do pledge for the pound for pound challenge then please include this information in your comment but it’s not a strict requirement.

The Kroger Family of Stores gift card, information, and giveaway were all provided by the Kroger Family of Stores and General Mills through MyBlogSpark – a service that provides access to review new products, services and survey entries – and occasionally giveaways to your readers – hence this post. Contest not applicable to family members.

Update Congrats to Deanna who won the competition, replied with her details and the gift cards are on their way.

    Good Luck! You should look into taking vitamin B-12, it helps turn food into energy. This would help for those days when you don’t eat much but still need to function..
