"Because of this website I am well on my way to a healthier life, a new me, a whole new start on life!" - Tasha, Diet.com Weight Loss Challenge Grand Prize Winner
Brookline, MA (PRWEB) March 22, 2012
Diet.com, one of the web's leading resources for diet, fitness and nutrition content and tools, has announced the winners of the site's annual New Year's Weight Loss Challenge. Winners of the Weight Loss Challenge, which began in early January and ran for 6 weeks, will take home a combined total of over $1,000 in valued prizes.
The Grand Prize winner, a Diet.com member named Tasha, lost 17 lbs during the 6-week Challenge. The 24-year-old mother of three, who goes by the username Tasha23 on the site, tells Diet.com that she started off 2012 with a new resolution - to focus on getting healthy, not getting "skinny."
"This year, my New Year's resolution wasn't to get skinny - it was to be healthy, stop drinking pop, exercise," Tasha tells Diet.com. "Not just set an image goal for myself, but set a life-changing goal... I want to be the same girl on the outside as I am on the inside."
Tasha wrote a blog about her Challenge experience that can be read here.
"Our Challengers are people from all over the world who want to lose weight, become healthier and reach goals," says Bailey Apple, Diet.com's Marketing Manager, who oversees the operations of each of the site's Weight Loss Challenges. "Our Weight Loss Challenges give participants a boost of motivation to help them do so."
Tasha agrees, attributing her weight loss success to the Challenge and Diet.com:
"Because of this website I am well on my way to a healthier life, a new me, a whole new start on life!"
For being named the Grand Prize winner of the Weight Loss Challenge, Tasha has been awarded a prize package to help her continue on her journey towards healthy living: a $250 Visa Gift Card, 3 cases of Vita Coco all-natural coconut water, a 12-pack variety case from Colby's Kettle Corn and a variety of diet and fitness books.
