GRAND PRIZE: EatSmart Bathroom Scale
The EatSmart Precision Digital Body Analyzer is not your ordinary bathroom scale because it quickly and easily measures weight, body fat, body water, body muscle and bone mass using electrode technology. This scale is perfect for individuals who are serious about taking control of their health. The Precision Digital Body Analyzer Scale stores up to 8 different users’ personal profiles and will be able to recognize these users as soon as they step onto the scale. This auto recognition software makes it simple to operate, since all you have to do is stand on the platform barefoot and it identifies who you are based on past weight. Not having to select a user gives it the same functionality as a basic bathroom scale with added benefit of % body fat, % body muscle, % body water and bone mass. Let’s not forget about its universal EatSmart features! The Precision Digital Body Analyzer uses “Step-On” technology which means no more tapping to turn on your scale. It measures up to 400lbs and will display an accurate readout to the nearest .2 lbs. on the oversized 3.7″ LCD display. Its sleek design and slim profile fits perfectly into any surrounding. Purchase here.

Many bloggers have come together to bring you some amazing prizes! Each prize is worth a minimum of $15, but some are worth much more. There is no limit to how many you can win – so enter them all! GOOD LUCK!

Synopsis per Goodreads:

None of us have all the right answers. Certainly not on the first try. But what we do have are experiences, mentors, friends, family, and even enemies from which we learn. And in my case, I sure did a lot of learning.

I can’t offer you the right answers. And even if I could, what’s right for me might not be ideal for you. What I can promise you is unfettered candor. From le None of us have all the right answers. Certainly not on the first try. But what we do have are experiences, mentors, friends, family, and even enemies from which we learn. And in my case, I sure did a lot of learning.

I can’t offer you the right answers. And even if I could, what’s right for me might not be ideal for you. What I can promise you is unfettered candor. From leaving home as a teenager to living and working abroad, from starting my own small business to knowing when it was time to accept defeat, from chasing my dreams to relishing life’s challenges.

I have embraced what makes me unique. And I hope my story inspires you to do the same.

Dorothea Jensen, born in Boston, MA, grew up in Chillicothe, IL, the same little town where Zorro’s creator was raised. She earned a BA in English at Carleton College, taught high school English, served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Brazil, and received an MA in Education at the University of New Mexico. In 1989, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich published Dorothea’s award-winning novel for young readers about the American Revolution, THE RIDDLE OF PENNCROFT FARM. Her new novel, A BUSS FROM LAFAYETTE, set in 1825 in her New Hampshire town, was released by BQB Publishing on April 22, 2016. (Dorothea has also written a guide for using this book in the classroom.) Besides historical fiction, Dorothea has written a series of award-winning illustrated modern Christmas stories in verse. These feature Santa’s Izzy Elves (Tizzy, Blizzy, Dizzy, Frizzy, Quizzy, Fizzy, Bizzy and Whizzy) who are all extremely savvy in 21st century technology. In addition to being a writer, Dorothea is an experienced actress/singer who played many Gilbert and Sullivan battle axe contralto and ingénue mezzo roles. She also performed in a baroque opera company. (She usually lost the hero to the soprano.)

Here a couple of book covers. I’ll send the rest in a separate e-mail.
