Win Stuff!

****THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED. THANKS FOR PLAYING**** WINNER HAS BEEN NOTIFIED.

It's time for another Eggface giveaway! A chance to win a 30 day supply of Building Blocks Vitamins.

Prize: 30 day supply includes Chewable Multiple Vitamin (Mixed Berry), Chewable Calcium Citrate (Orange), and Chewable Iron 30 mg (Black Raspberry) ($40 value)

I am so thankful that I had weight loss surgery I feel soooo much better. I no longer need to take the 8 prescription medications I was on for GERD, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and sleep apnea. Weight loss surgery resolved all my comorbidities but there are some lifelong rules I have to follow... one of which is taking vitamins faithfully. Seriously so many issues and complications can be avoided if we just make sure to take our vitamins every day.

Not all vitamins are created equal. These are vitamins for us.

From Building Blocks website: "Building Blocks Vitamins-Essential Bariatric Supplements were developed to address the specific needs of the surgical weight loss patient. The product line was designed by a team of bariatric professionals with health and success of the bariatric surgical patient in mind. Created to address the nutritional malabsorbtion problem and the restrictive effects of bariatric surgery."

How to enter: Just leave a comment (include your name and an email addy) on this blog posting by Friday, September 18th, midnight (Pacific time) and sometime Saturday the 19th. I'll draw a name using a random number generator and announce the winner here on the blog! You'll have a week to contact me or another winner will be chosen.

One COMMENT ENTRY per person. Remember blog comments are moderated so there will be a slight delay in seeing your comment post.

***Want extra chances to win?*** Do anything listed below and leave me a comment letting me know what you did! For up to four more entries per person!!

Fab Kate said...

and I'm commenting for another chance at this. Vitamins are a big issue for me. I've been trying to swallow down some horse pill size vitamins that have everything in them I need, but am rapidly becoming more interested in going back to chewables.

Now that I'm farther out from my surgery, I thought I'd avoid the expense and (self imposed) stigma of chewables, but I thought wrong. I really need to swallow my pride and CHEW my vitamins.

No high cholesterol, no high blood presure and no more cpap machine. I want to be creative with my diet. Thank you for sharing so much. Your recipies and tips are so appreciated. Your hard work to help others is commended. Thanks.

I would like to try new vitamins, or calcium citrate. Thanks for considering us.
