Give it away Give it away Give it away now...

Good morning, sunshine(s).

As you can no doubt tell from my happiness this early in the morning, clearly I future-dated this post at some ungodly hour last night. I am not a morning person, never will be. But I wanted to post this early because I want lots and lots of people to see it, and enter, and win. Well, I only want one of you to win. Well...okay, I WANT all of you to win, but only one of you CAN win, so...yeah. This confusing paragraph leads me to the following announcement: I AM HAVING MY VERY FIRST FIGHT FAT PHOBIA GIVEAWAY!! Shout it from the rooftops, people.

Here's a picture of the loot!

I made that collage in Picasa. Pretty fancy for me, eh? Here's a list of the stuff that's in it:

The Biggest Loser Glass Digital Kitchen Scale - You want this.
Thermos FUNtainer 10 oz Food Jar - Yeah, this has Bakugan on the front, and like, I dunno what the hell that is, but apparently it's something the kids are into. Alls I know is that this thing is supposed to keep hot stuff hot for 5 hours or cold stuff cold for 7 hours, and that's a lot.
5 Pc Measuring Cup Set AND 5 pc Measuring Spoon Set - In festive fall colors, you will notice.
Lock & Lock 6pc Storage Set - These rule, and they're stainproof, so they're good for tomato-y stuffs.
Egg Dude Precision Measuring Cup - Perfect for those 2 tbsp servings you keep cheating on.
Bell Pedometer - Speed, calorie, distance, and step :)
Fit & Fresh Healthy Food Snacker - holds a snack, a dipping sauce, and an ice ring!
Emerald 100 Calorie Pack Almonds & Walnuts - self explanitory.
Ocean Spray 100 Cal Pack Craisins - 6 pouches!
Two packs of Trident Layers Gum - Strawberry Citrus and Green Apple Pineapple.

So there ya go. It's a lot of stuff, but it's all pretty diet friendly and I promise not to send a surprise tin of brownies or something to try to trick you into staying fat like meeee. The holidays are coming up FAST and I figure we need all the help we can get this time of year, so this BOX 'O STUFF is designed to help you keep your laser sharp focus on that weight loss goal.

It's also to celebrate my 150 Followers. That's a pretty big number for this silly ol' blog and I really appreciate you guys reading about my day to day nonadventures and listening to me whine a lot. And commenting, boy do I love comments! So thanks <3

Here's how to enter for your chance to win!

  1. Leave me a comment telling me how much you love me, or how your day's going, or what your favorite song is, or whatever you want. Just like...leave a comment. 5 word minimum!
  2. Post a link to this post telling others about the AWESOME FAT FIGHT PHOBIA GIVEAWAY and comment me telling me you did it.
  3. Record yourself doing a sexy dance for me. (this counts as five entries!)

That's it! So go ahead and enter because I'm gonna be bummed if I did all this work and I get like 4 entries and 3 of them are mine. I will quit blogging forever...IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT?? Yeah, you don't want that on your soul, dudes. Good luck, guys!

P.S. Before you ask: Yes, UK and Canadian residents can enter and possibly even win, and Yes, I already told Dina she can't win. There. Now go!

Oooh, I can't not post a comment! I super, duper love your blog with cherries, cream, sprinkles and chocolate sauce on top.

My favouritest, bestest post of yours was from Sept 11th - 'First off, let's kill all the fat people...' - So funny! I love being automatic shotgun, although I'm english so we don't tend to use the same expression. Fat people in England get the front passenger seat using our own inimitable brand of detached, stiff upper lip reserve. Man, I wish I lived in America!

I'm fat now (have a read of my blog if you don't believe me) but if I lived in the US I would spend my life eating Fluff, lucky charms, those little fish crackers, Lays potato chips... it would just go on and on. Forget being 18 stone, I would be about 40!

Anyway, so I will stop rambling now... I can't help it. I'm like an express train, once I get started, there is no stopping me. Sorry!

Lastly, I will hold off on making the sexy dance video, for the sake of your mental health. You're welcome :D xx

I AM a morning person ... which makes me a cranky person if I'm kept awake past 11pm on week nights ( :o ). Hey, if ya love me you don't fault me, right. :) I've lost 105 pounds since June of 2008 and would put your contest loots to good use as I fight to lose the last 30 pounds (the last 30 sure are stubborn ones too!!!). Thank you for your great blog which I don't comment to often but I read every post. I found you through Carlos I believe.

Amy H. said...

I love your blog - always makes me smile. I'll post a link to your giveaway tomorrow.

100in12 said...

What a gal you are! And I love your blog right down to the poison cupcakes. i've been awake for a whole 19 minutes so far today, but i'd say it's going well if there's a chance to win something! say whaaaaaat!

favorite song is...don't have one because i can't make decisions! all right!

Angie P said...

awesome goodies...I should win cause it's my birhtday (really it is) but I will just cross my fingers and wait! Love your blog...proud to be a reader

A Daunting Tale of Scale Warfare said...

I AM a morning person, until the sun decided to stop coming up at a reasonable hour (really, I blame Jesus-I kid Christians, I kid.)

But I do love youre blog, youre honesty and your kick ass since of humor.

(Do I get an extra entry if I say I love Jeff and really wish he could go a week with out smoking the reefer??)

Tantra Flower said...

I'm so not a morning person either. My mother hates this about me and loves to call me early in the morning sounding all cheerful and chipper, singing me happy songs just to annoy me. I love her.

Congratulations on 150 followers! That's a lot of love!!! Well deserved.

I do love you and your blog a whole bunch. xox I'm posting a link this morning. But I shouldn't win because I'll just give it to another one of your readers anyway.

Ang said...

Anytime I'm having a horrible day, I come read your blog, and yours is always worse lol :-) Always fun to read!

Going to post a link now on my blog :-)

big_mummy said...

well you know i love you fuh reelz, and i am totally dancing as i post this, sexy dancing too, pulling out all the stops ya know... shaking my tatas just for you.

angie i love how you used your birthday for the bribery!! My birthday was yesterday, and ya know didnt even get a gift.... *cough*

So yeh Tricia.... love ya. (off to post about awesome giveaway now... well not right now i have to go out, but later for reelz)

Kari said...

I come to work and check your blog first thing in the morning, which ususally ends with me laughing to myself in my cube. You have a great sense of humor and a hilarious look on life that is guaranteed to make everyone smile. I do not have a personl blog, I just like to stalk others. Yeah, I am one of your lurkers...Hi!

spunkysuzi said...

Love your blog! I'm definitely not a morning person, in fact i work 2-10pm :)
It's my birthday next week so if i won it would be a great birthday present!!

Aimee said...

okay, i want this stuff. but do i really have to record a sexy dance for you? i think you would revoke my entry at that point.

gonna put a link in my blog...and then i'm gonna come back and comment AGAIN. :)

Aimee said...

linked your giveaway in my blog! :)

Kimmi said...

I'm coming out of lurking to post here for the first time.(and not just for the giveaway I promise!) Love your blog! Linked you to my blog as well!

Megan said...

I too don't think I've ever commented but read every post you've ever written. I don't have a blog so it's cool if I don't win, but I sure do like yours. I liked your SF pictures and the evtry where you were all red from something having to do with groceries on a very hot day. I get all red every day.

big_mummy said...

i linked now too :)

Tigerlilly said...

What a fantastic giveaway!! I love your blog and think you are doing a fantastic job.. keep up the good work.

I'm linking right now too!!

@eloh said...

I'm just going to leave a comment that I was here, and that I love ya. I'm too old and lazy to dance and record it at the same time and I'm also to lazy to pick up a package...so consider this just a plain old everyday "been here, read it, love ya" no entry.

TjRenee said...

You would laugh your ass off at my sexy dancing. Or fall hopelessly in love with me one. ;)

That's a lot of great shit and I want it! Linked you in my latest post, but I think anyone who reads me, reads you first anyways. Pffttt!

Shelley said...

You are so generous - what an awesome giveaway!!! I'm so glad you're posting more often again...I really love reading whatever you have to say!

Slimmer Side of Me said...

Nothing will get the lurkers to come out of the woodwork like a good giveaway!
I just came across your blog recently and I already love it - I have posted a link on my blog for your fabulous giveaway :-)

TJ said...

You know I luv you T! :) Great giveaway! Im headed over to blog about it right now....so 2 entries for me! Im not sexy enough to do a sexy dance! I would be laughing the entire time. lol :)

Michelle said...

Hey Tricia! I've never commented before, as I'm more of the silent type, but I love love love your blog!! I look forward to reading it everyday, you are hilarious! What a great giveaway!

michebee@gmail(dot)com :)

Stacie Rodgers said...

my day is going pretty crappy. dealing with drama is always a way to make you feel like jumping into a vat of oreos. but i am holding strong.

stacie.rodgers@gmail.com

Erin said...

::cue stripper music:: shake it, shake it...oh yeah!

i love your blog...it always cheers me up if i need it, or bitches when i need bitching etc.

can i have free stuff?! ::pout:: puh leeease?


don't make me dance again...the world can't survive it.

Dina said...

That's some BS I can't win. But I'll still link you cause I'm the better person and stuff.

TeresaLynn said...

So I'm a new follower and I've now posted a link on my blog about your give-away, so I hope you get lots of entries (and new followers). But I hope I'm the winner! I really want that scale.

I posted about it in my blog this morning, before I found your giveaway, so it's kismet. I found your blog initially via the Fat Daddy, and the posts about why it's good to be fat. Which inspired me to write my own. I love your poison cupcakes, but I followed because we're in a similar struggle (it seems), and because of the need for solidarity against TLOEFG. Why do they pick on you, anyway???

Look forward to reading your blog frequently, and to mutual success!

bbubblyb said...

That's really nice of you to have your own give away!!! Don't enter me I just wanted to say you have a great blog and I love reading what you have to say, you have me laughing often.

TeresaLynn said...

Perhaps I need to comment twice, since I put both my "how much I love you" and "I posted a link on my blog" in the same comment. So...here's the second one.

And my day? Could be beter. Minding the store (it's not really a store) alone while one coworker has a tooth pulled and the other has a baby.

Julie said...

Awesome! I love contests. I am totally going to post a link to your blog too... Oh..and you make me laugh..and make me realize that I am not the only one out there who thinks this way :)

Christa said...

OH...I would love this stuff!! My husband and I just joined Weight Watchers online almost a month ago...this stuff would come in handy! I am going to go blog about this now...so you can add 2 entries for me too:)

I can't do a sexy dance...my hubby wouldn't like that too much...its only for him..hehe

Laurie (GastricGirl.com) said...

I love you so very much! :-) I'm about to leave a link on my blog to get some extra love on your blog.. woo hoo! :)

Awesome giveaway.. you rock!

foolsfitness said...

I enjoyed reading your blog before I knew you were giving away "stuff"... but I got to admit giving away stuff is pretty cool.

Gee I don't have a video camera to do a dance with, but maybe I can draw a cartoon.

Being unable to color in the lines is just the foolsfitness way!-Alan

Tony the Pink Panda said...

Yay! This is five words.

Amy said...

1). You know I love your blog because funny people RAWK.

2). I'm going to go pimp you on my blog right now.

3). You do not want to see my 'sexy dance' because it is akin to the Elaine dance on Seinfeld. I ought to get extra points for that out of pity.

sharongracepjs said...

I just visited your blog because someone else linked to this giveaway. I want that stuff. And I want to keep reading your blog. And I might even do a dance for you. We'll see.

Amy said...

Okay.....I did a blog linking you. Go see what I wrote. Hee...

screwdestiny said...

I effing love your blog. And this is a super cool giveaway. But I have about half of that stuff anyway so I won't be officially entering, just want to tell you that you ROCK. \oo/

KrysTros said...

Just to make you feel better, your link to this page is on like everyone elses page that I went to so "PICK ME I WANT TO WIN!"

wildfluffysheep said...

Man. I came to this post super late.

I think I should just win because I am awesome. And British. and my ex returned looking hot while i am still extra fat. thats sucky? but winning would cheer me up and make me forget all about it.

there's no point me linking back to this post every blogger has already done it.so

JUST PICK ME.
please.

I always tell people you're awesome. I actually refer to you as awesome Tricia. *nods* you are amazingly awesome.

theantijared said...

My day is quacktasticals, dude!

Julie said...

Totally gave you a shout out on my blog! I draw the line at dancing though :) Even for 5 entries..

KK @ Running Through Life said...

Great giveaway and great blog!! My day is off to a better start than yesterday. I hope your day is great as well! Oh, and pick me! I want to win this giveaway!!!

Erin said...

so i've officially posted your giveaway on my site. rather nice of me i think, cause who wants to tell other people that there is a contest that YOU want to win? hmmm? well i did it. can i have stuff? i'll beg!


eh....you want i should dance again?

Ann-Margaret said...

First time on your blog - followed it from "A Daunting Tale of Scale Warfare." Will definitely be adding your blog to my favorites!!

Camevil said...

I love you more than my own shit.

My day is going "meh."

My favorite song at the moment is "Daniel" by Bat for Lashes.

Tra said...

i love youuuuuuuuuuuu
my day is OKAY..it's a beautiful day outside.

i love HOT MESS by cobra starship.

Melissa said...

Ooh I love your blog! I've just survived the first ever dust storm here in Sydney, Australia and I needed some giggles. Would love to enter your giveaway although the whole sexy dance thingy might disturb the patients in the waiting room here!!! I don't think the world is ready to see my fat flying around like that! Ha haaa!

LAF said...

Hello! I'm droppin' it like it's hot as I type this, it's sexy, trust me. Looks like a nice haul. I hope you had fun shopping, I mean hunting and gathering.
I love Craisins!

Learning to be Less said...

One time my husband made a dinner - I called it morphing pork. It totally changed shape and consistancy. Even after we threw it away, I made him take out the trash because I feared it coming to get me in my sleep.

Will any of this free crap (I say that with love) help us?

misssarahlou said...

I am new to your blog and love it so far, I found the link via tj at TJs test kitchen. I would love to enter your giveaway! :o)

Joanne G said...

I have been lurking and reading your blog for the last 6 months. I really like your blog because you are "real". Terrific giveaway....the scale would look great in my kitchen :)

Blossom said...

Just following a link from one of my reads, but I'm going to check you out! I like your layout already!!

Bridgett said...

Count me in! I'd love to be entered in your giveaway. :)

Amy sent me!

TC said...

Hmmm this future posting thing intrigues me! I have tried to get on your site before (thanks to the fabulous Dina), and damn if it didn't let me! Glad to come on and see that yes, you are in fact, awesome! FYI, I am one of those annoying whiners that always says, "But I never win anything!" whenever a contest comes up. So, hey, maybe you will surprise me! I am 35 lbs down since end of April, and have 15 to go! This would certainly help. I won't be recording my dance moves because I'm sure you'd rather not stab your eyeballs out in horror.

Diana said...

This is so way cool! I want to WIN! Lady luck, be on my side for once!

Great idea Tricia. Love the stuff.

chubrubb said...

Haaaay
You know I love you cause 1) I've commented before 2) I'm not even entering your contest cause I wouldn't want you to pay the shipping all the way to here 3) your link is already on my blog
Peace!

Patty (Tales of a Plus Size Pregnancy) said...

I learned about your blog from A Daunting Tale of Scale Warfare, just today and am finding it toally addicting. I will be going back to read the archives. :) You have a new fan and follower :) I am posting a link (if I can figure it out) on my blog as well. Hope all is well and good luck to all the entries :)

Crystal said...

YAY for finding new blogs ... and for finding them when a giveaway is going on :P I've added you to my Google Reader so I'll be back to read again, and quite possibly comment!!

Diane, Fit to the Finish said...

Great giveaway! I love reading your blog! Count me in.

Chai Latté said...

Five word minimum. Platypus! Spatula!

Allie said...

What a fantastic giveaway!

I found your blog through Super-Duper-Cali-Fragi-Listic-Expeali-Docious and I can't wait to start reading some of your posts!

MaggieRose said...

This give-away is amazing! And if I didn't have 9yr old son I wouldn't know what Bakugan were either, but he LOVES them! I will be honest and say I have never seen your blog before this, but I am glad I saw the post for on one of the ones I follow (www.talesofaplussizepregnancy.blogspot.com). I read a few of your past posts and have to say I will definitely be following from now on. I am always on the hunt for great blogs! Reading about other peoples thoughts and struggles helps mine seem not quite so insurmountable. Thanks again!!

amoslionhorse said...

first stop at your blog.. LOVE it. :) I found it through a bunch of the people above who are linking you! :) :) I'm a new follower and will link as well in my next blog post.

My day is going GREAT thankyou! and I have no favourite song... but today's earworm is "Cakewalk into Town"

Had the blues, so bad one time it put my face in a permanent frown
You know I'm feeling so much better, I could cakewalk into town

Honey, I woke up this mornin' feelin' so good, you know I laid back down again
Throw your big leg over me mama, I might not feel this good again

My baby, my baby, I do love the way she walks
And when my woman gets sleepy, I love the way she baby-talks

My work is getting scarce, oh baby, my work it done got hard,
I spend my whole day stealin' chickens Honey from the rich folks yard

I would love to take a picnic in the country and stay all day
I wouldn't do nothing but while my blues away

I had the blues so bad one time it put my face in a permanent frown
You know I'm feelin' so much better I could cakewalk into town

Mitzi @ who me fat???? said...

This is a great givaway!!! I want to win (but I AM unlucky so we'll see how that goes)!!!! Thanks for putting up this give-a-way (did I spell that right?).

Allison said...

I lurve you bunches, Tricia! (There, exactly 5 words! Well, now 9. Or 12...)
Oh, also, remember that post you had with pictures of those awesome gangsta rapper tumblers you got at Ross? Yeah? Well, my husband and I have searched the Ross store near us multiple times looking for such a gem, but all we find are like lame Betty Boop tumblers. I am so jealous! (You wouldn't do those tumblers for a giveaway, would you?)

Anonymous said...

amanda said...

I just found you and read all your entries in one night...stalkerish, eh? I also commented on your chat thing! :) So...um, do you need an e-mail or something? I'm confused.

And my current fave song is English Girls Approximately by Ryan Adams...HEART.

HopeFool said...

Is this thing still on?
HOLY COMMENTS

Kristie said...

While I don't have my own blog, I love reading yours. Once I stumbled upon it, I got sucked in and went back and read all of your old posts and always look forward to any new updates. I don't have my own blog so if I don't qualify that's okay just thought it was about time I commented (although I normally don't do that kind of thing).

Chubby Stubby Kay said...

Holy Hell!

I definitely thought I was a follower on your blog a bajillion years ago! Come to find out, I wasn't.

Yeah, I know...I suck! But I'm following now, so I guess that makes me rockin' since you ROCK!

Oh, and to the person that commented Platypus and Spatula...You are awesome! :)

Jogging Auburn said...

So I just found your blog due to a link on another blog, and just the announcement for this entry made me laugh out loud. :D I will follow your blog after this comment is over...

I would love to win the loot! I am struggling to lose a bunch of weight and I've done pretty good but I've hit a plateau ... ergh. Plus, since my hubbie and I are apparently going to try to build our first and only house this coming spring, I will be broke for years and will not be able to buy said loot for myself. :)

Thanks! I look forward to hearing more of you!
