Chicken Soup for the Soul: Shaping the New You Review and Giveaway – 3 winners (US and Canada)

I’ve been a fan of Chicken Soup for the Soul books for as long as I can remember. I’ve always enjoyed the fact that this line of books combines inspirational stories, funny comics related to the theme of the book and that I can read the book in spurts because of the combination of numerous stories within one book!

I recently received a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Shaping the New You. As someone who has struggled with my weight my whole life (including the fact that I thought had beaten it 10 years ago and find myself fighting against it again!), this book could not have arrived at a better time! I was surprised to turn over the book and see Richard Simmons on the back cover! As someone who was “Sweatin’ to the Oldies” as a teen girl in the 80s, it just made me grin and want to dig into the book!

I like the fact that the stories are arranged into topic areas, so I can either read the book from front to back or choose sections that I want to read to inspire me at different times. Given the fact that I’ve been fighting to find ways to actually motivate myself to exercise, I found myself gravitating towards the sections entitled “The Gym” and “Exercise Can Be Fun”. The stories inside gave me true food for thought as I liked some of the creative ideas in the stories and they are helping to spark my own creative thoughts of how I can work out and not hate it! Other sections include “Regaining Control”, “To Err is Human” (an area I can relate to totally!) and “Telling Myself the Truth” (which I haven’t read yet but plan to do because I think that denial is part and parcel of my weight issue).

I’m so glad I’ve been reading Chicken Soup for the Soul: Shaping the New You because it helps me to realize that weight loss truly is a journey but that it does start with one step! The stories look at the small steps people have taken to achieve their goals and I’ve found it really inspirational!
