Shaping the New You {Chicken Soup for the Soul}: Book Review & Giveaway

I just can't get enough of the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series!



Shaping the New You offers 101 stories about dieting, fitness and finding what works for you.  The foreword was written by Richard Simmons, who we all know from Sweatin' to the Oldies.  In it I learned about Richard's life and how he opened up his club Slimmons and all the great things he's done to help people overcome their weight issues.

As is expected from any Chicken Soup for the Soul book the stories really encourage and motivate you to get up and do something good for your body.  Often we associate losing weight and getting in shape with just wanting to look good on the outside, but the truth is that it can help you have a better quality of life.  Before going to bed I like to read a story or two to keep me motivated in taking baby steps toward a healthy lifestyle.  Who doesn't want to have a better quality of life?  I know I do!
