A total-body workout for 2009

Category Contests

It’s a new year! And a new chance to wonder why my pants keep shrinking in the wash. I mean, that must be what’s happening. I’m sure it doesn’t have anything to do with all of those cookies I keep eating….

The very pretty Kirsten from Box of Polka Dots—who happens to be a Senior T-Tapp Trainer—has offered up a very fitting (get it? fitting?) prize to one lucky Want Not reader for the new year: She’s donated a Total T-Tapp Workout set for giveaway. This includes all of the great DVDs you need to learn about T-Tapp, isometric linear alignment and how to shape up while slimming down. Thanks, Kirsten!

  142. Everything is too too tight and T-Tapp is for me!

  143. What a great contest for a bunch of women with new year’s resolutions to loose weight! I’m fairly certain that I am not alone in this “quest to weigh less”!

  161. Would love this! 🙂

  162. I would LOVE this

  163. I think that over the holidays someone stole my body and then returned it with 8 extra pounds. What happened? I’m sure it wasn’t all the sweets and stuffing and roast beast and, well you get the idea. Please pick me!

  164. I just had my second child and would love to try this to get back in shape!

  165. I wanted to get this, as it looks amazing, but is so expensive.

  166. I’d love this!

  167. Count me in!!!

  168. I’ve never heard of this program, but I browsed the website and it looks like it’d be interesting.

    Anything to help with my weight-loss goals for this year.


  169. It’s my Birthday today and I would love to get fit…thx

  170. I am not getting the results I want from the Wii Fit and it’s really hard to work around my toddler’s schedule to get to the gym. I TOTALLY want to try T-Tapp!

  171. I would LOVE to win this!

  172. This is my lucky year!

  173. Mmm.Hmmm. I know all about the shrinking pants.

  174. This could be all the motivation that I need!!

  175. I would love to win this.

  176. In the words of Bob, “Gimme, gimme, gimme! I need, I need, I need! Gimme, gimme, please!” 🙂 Pretty please, pretty Mir.

  177. Started Weight Watchers, this will help keep it going.

  178. Sounds awesome. I would love this!

  179. Just joined the Biggest Loser at work…could TOTALLY use the help!

  180. I need to lose weight to fit into my wedding dress this September…pick me!

  181. Since I am due with baby #2 in March and never managed to loose the 40 extra pounds I had left over from my 3 year old I could totally use this!


  183. My pants keep shrinking too! : )

    Pick Me! Pick Me!

  184. Of any contest, I NEED this more than, say, the free chocolates. ;p

  185. I really need this

  186. Please, please pick me so I can get rid of this extra ten pounds of fat that seemed to attach itself to each cheek. And I’m not talking about my face.

  187. nice prize! I could really use this!

  188. Heck yes…. please count me in! The twelve pounds I need to get rid of somehow snuck up to twenty. Darn holidays. And darn my love of baking.

  189. Looks like fun!

  190. Well, since I will be turning 50 (not 60) on Jan 7th, maybe it will be my “lucky” day and I’ll win something to motivate me to get in better shape, which, as one becomes older, is even more important than ever before. I’m certain that if I posted a picture of myself, all the other posts would run away, screaming in horror and I would win by default. Never fear…I wouldn’t do that because I do have a tiny bit of self pride. 😉

    Nevertheless, I would appreciate it if the random number generator would take pity on my out of shape, half century old body and pick my number.

    Thanks, Mir. 🙂

  191. Pick me, please! I gotta get this butt moving!

  202. I could really use this!

  203. I got to within 10 lbs. of my prepregnancy weight with my last baby (at 38) then something happened (I turned 40) and put on about 25 lbs. Enough already! I’m ready for my old body to come back to me.

  204. I would love to win this right now as I come out of hibernation mode.
