I’ve always been a big magazine reader, but I didn’t start reading SELF until I started losing weight. SELF has been instrumental in helping me lose 120 pounds — they always have good recipes, new fitness moves and health news. I can’t enough of health stories like mystery ailments and cancer research, and SELF does a good job at balancing nutrition, fitness, serious health  news and fun things like fashion.

If you’d like to jump start your weight loss or just re-examine your healthy lifestyle, I would honestly recommend SELF. There are lots of health magazines on the market, but SELF really has the best mix of useful info, serious studies and fashion ideas.

I wrote to one of the magazine’s reps and told her how much I love the magazine (no joke — this isn’t a marketing gimmick; I don’t do those), and SELF has graciously offered a free subscription to one Fashionably Fit reader.

To enter the giveaway, SELF would like you to sign up for the SELF challenge. Even if you are not trying to lose weight, the SELF Challenge can help you stay on track and make good, healthy choices. There are recipes, fitness moves and tools to track your weight loss.

So, register for the challenge, and come back and leave a comment with what excites  you most about the challenge. The giveaway will end Monday morning. Good luck!
