Relaunch Giveaway Party: Week 1

gwens nest giveawayLet’s get this relaunch party started with a giveaway celebrating the Trim & Healthy category here on Gwen’s Nest. But let’s make it twice the fun, and choose two winners this week: two randomly selected awesome winners will get a copy of the Trim Healthy Mama book.

If you’ve hung out here much at all in the last couple of years, you know that this is a book that has been really life changing for me and how I understand and use food. I won’t bore you with the details, but I lost over 45 pounds with this plan. You can read more about it in my Trim Healthy Mama book review, and here where I share my weight loss journey and before & after photos.

I would love to bless two people with a paperback copy of this book!

  38. Cindi klemm says

    I love your new look! I also love aprons. I used to make my mom and mother in law a new apron every year for Christmas, I stopped making them after the twins were born as they were #5 and 6 in our family and I would rather play with my kids!

  39. Nancy Smith says

    I would love to win a copy so I can have a copy to loan to friends! I already have my own copy but seem to loan it out a lot!

  40. Bonita Timmons says

    I need to eat healthier and i need to help my family to eat healthyI am a mom of 4 kids I homeschool and am very busy ….

  41. Deborah says

    I have heard wonderful things about this book and would love to win a copy to read. We are on a journey of changing our meals to whole foods. To have the success that others who have followed this book have had would be a wonderful step in that direction and getting the health we need at our age.

  42. Michelle says

    A friend shared her weight loss story on FB, and how life changing this book is. I have Celiac disease and therefore eat gluten free. Well, when you are GF, your body starts craving sugar. I have tried many things to lose this weight. So I would love to read this book to see if it is the key that unlocks my weight loss door.

  43. Laura Bowser says

    I found your site about six months ago and have really enjoyed it. I think this program would be a great direction for me and my son. I borrowed the book from the library but have not purchased one yet. Thanks for this fun idea!

  44. Tina says

    I want to win this book for my sister. She’s given up at 5′ 2″ 250ish lbs, and I understand why. After trying lowfat, and later, low carb, losing weight on both but not being able to stick with either for life, she doesn’t yet believe me when I tell her that this plan can be done on a smaller budget, is family friendly, and is an enjoyable way of eating that doesn’t have too much of a learning curve. The support available is truly a plus as well. I love this book, and I think she will too. She’s not getting any younger, she’s a single mom, and has a teenage son that’s gonna need her to stick around for a lot longer and be happy and healthy while she’s here.

  45. Nikki Smith says

    Would love to win a copy of this great book. I have seen how this book has blessed several ladies in my life.

  46. Leah Jardin says

    I’d love to win this book because the one I have is falling apart by how much I use it and to have the updated version…plus I just love THM!

  47. says

    I’ve seen so much hype over this book the past few years, but haven’t been able to bring myself to buy it (because of the expense). I’d love to win it and check it out for myself – heaven knows I could stand to lose some weight.

  48. Kristy Mallory says

    I’m looking to lose quite a bit of weight…tried all the fad diets, now looking to make some real life changes.

  49. LaNette says

    Gwen, Congrats on the new look and on being back. I’m actually so glad you took the break – it was well deserved. I love this book/lifestyle and if I win one of these books, I would give it to a friend whose budget is tight. Thanks!

  50. Leah T. says

    I really like the new look of the blog! And what a fun way to launch it! I’d love to get a copy to share with a friend. :)

  51. Angel Ogle says

    I would love to win the book for a friend. It would not only benefit her, but I would also love to have a friend to share this journey with!

  52. Rhonda Burks says

    Thank you for the opportunity to win this. I have a friend that could really benefit from this lifestyle. She is dieting, and today at work she ate these little cinnamon candies ALL day, “they have very little calories”. Then she c/o being hungry at the end of the day, sugar drop?

  53. Kimery says

    I have loved your blog from the first time I was overwhelmed with THM. If I win, I will be gifting this book to a dear friend with weight and major health issues.

  54. debi harrop says

    I really need this book, I have been fighting obesity for several years. I have tried so many different diets, with little success.

  55. Mary Leary says

    Trying to win this for the world’s GREATEST mother-in-law. She has given every shred of herself to her family, even me included, her daughter-in-law. She is the most self-sacrificing person I have ever met. If she wins, this book will change her life as it has mine. It was given to me as a gift, and now I want to share that gift with her. Blessings to whomever wins!

  56. D Hicks says

    I have been very successful on THM and have introduced the plan to several friends. I have another friend and she and her husband both have diabetes and are very overweight. I would love to gift her with a book!

  57. Terri says

    This is such an amazing give away! I would love to win this book so that I can pay it forward and share this wonderful plan with my daughter who is not financially able to buy one for herself.

  58. Brandy Thrasher says

    I would love to win this book to help me get back to a healthy weight so I can actually play with my son.

  59. Cheryl Doyle says

    I’d love to win this book. I’ve seen how the plan has helped my daughter lose weight and feel better. I want to try it too.

  60. Chaney dixon says

    I have been doing THM for 7 months with some success, think it would be better with hard copy. I’ve had the e book.

  61. Gwen Chester says

    I would love to have a copy of THM. My daughter is on the plan and doing well and I would love to be on it with her and having my own book would make that so much easier since we live an hour away from each other. Thank you for this wonder opportunity to win the book and God Bless you!!!

  62. Hannah says

    I’d love to win the THM book to give to my mom. She is trying to do THM but hasn’t been able to buy the book yet!

  63. Wendy Hoffman says

    I would love to win one of the copies. I have used mine so much and would like to have one separated and bound. I am ruining the recipe pages!!!

  64. Lynnette says

    I have the ebook, but I’m sorry I didn’t buy the paperback. I would love to be able to highlight the book and have it at my fingertips rather than run to the computer for their great recipes! Especially when another family member needs to use the computer :)

  65. Ivana says

    I would love this book for friend that can’t afford to buy it. She has been following THM by borrowing the book from the library and asking questions. Would love to see her receive her own copy.

  66. Billie Smith says

    Gwen, thank you for all that you do for your fans.. I know I personally have been able to try new things that taste good thanks to you. You give us hope and inspiration to continue on our journey on THM.. I have a book but wish to give a gift to my dear friend when she gets done with her Omni diet, she is going to need to heal her body after this one and I just can’t seem to want to share my book as I use it often and would feel lost without it. I feel it is the best gift to give to someone you care about! Thank you once again Gwen !

  67. Shelby says

    I just started THM and I’m loving it! I’ve already had a couple friends join me. yay! I’d love to have an extra copy of the book to loan to more friends to get them hooked too. :) I have no doubt I will get more and more people asking about it as I continue to lose. So excited!!!

  68. Sandi S says

    I would like to read the book. My daughter loves this plan and the recipes sound delicious. I need to know how it works and what to do. Thanks!

  69. Julie Glenn says

    I would love to win this book, I ordered the eBook sn d struggle with finding information, I think that was my first mistake, second mistake is getting frustrated with s and e meals. I now putting curving beliefs in the lord to help me understand the THM WAYS. thanks for blogging and all your helpful recipes on your site this was a blessing I found it..

  70. Allison says

    I need a copy so bad! Bought the digital copy and it’s so difficult to look things up on the fly as I’m trying to figure this out.

  71. says

    i would love to win this book for my best friend,my sister. She’s always been there for me and this would be a wonderful gift for her as she struggles with her weight like me.

  72. Kim says

    I’ve been attempting low-carb and sugar-free since last June and I have lost count of how many times I’ve checked this book out from my local library! I should just buy the book, but winning it would be so much better! (o: I LOVE your website and am so glad you are posting again! (o:

  73. Doris Podany says

    i have been thinking about this book for a month now, trying to make up my mind. I have about 60 pounds to lose and a few health concerns. In fact I go in on Wednesday for a HDRA scan and surgery is likely on Thursday to remove my gall bladder. I would really like to start a healthy lifestyle.

  74. Kristina says

    I would love to change the life of a friend!! She needs it. Thank you Gwen for the chance to win. Welcome back Gwen!

  75. Nancy says

    I already have the book, but I have so many friends who are interested in it because of the weight I have lost. I would love to be able to share the book with a friend.

  76. Phyllis Dugo says

    Thank you so much for all you have done to make this eating plan easier and doable for so many of us! I just did a Trim Healthy Mama informational group with some women from our church tonight and gave away a book plus others things to help them start the plan! I would love to be able to bless another woman with a book!

  77. Leah says

    I bought my copy of Trim Healthy Mama over a year ago, but would love a copy for my sister, or a copy I can lend out (without having to part with mine) to the many mamas I know who have asked to borrow my copy!

  78. Mandi Miller says

    I would love to win this for my husband and me. I have solely been following THM through friends, Facebook and Pinterest, but would love to actually have a physical book to look through! Thank you so much for the wonderful giveaway! Glad to see you’re back to blogging!

  79. Jan Johnson says

    Someone was kind enough to give the book to me when I had no money for it, and I would like to pass it on to someone I know who needs it but can’t afford it.

  80. Gwen says

    At the time, all I could afford was the digital copy of the book. I really am more of a hard copy kind of person and would love to have the actual book.

  81. Priscilla Powell says

    Hello! Welcome back! I’d love to win this book for my sister who is just starting out as a Trim Healthy Mama! I have been one for a little over a year and lost 35 lbs, so she would like to get her trim back after seeing my results. Thank you for your consideration.

    I am not able to finish the entry because I do not use Twitter. Is there another way to finish the entry?
    Thanks again!

  82. Barbara baze says

    A friend of mine told me about thm and believe it will help my husband and I.. He is on dialysis and diabetic and I was just recently became diabetic and both of us over weight.. Neither one of us can exercise much him due to his dialysis and bad knees.. He is a very sweet man and dialysis has taken so much out his body.. We have been married 3 years and he has had triple bypass and goes to dialysis 3 days a week for 4 hours each day, he also has gout.. we pretty much stay at home due to a very fixed income and he gets tired very easy, his body just gives out.. Dr says he needs to loose weight, but it is so hard due to his immobility.. I believe the THM would surely help us both.. Thank you for offering, Gods Blessings..

  83. Laura Leon says

    I’m very excited to know you are re-activating your site. I’m relatively new to THM, but have learned a lot from your posts. Thanks for the time and effort you put into serving the THM community.

  84. beth G says

    I would love to win this book and give it to my friend that has really been wanting it!It is a great book! I love mine!

  85. Denice Scott says

    I also have lost 40 pounds on THM. I have recommitted to the plan again after slacking due to the many stressors in my life right now. I’m currently rereading the book and my daughter is reading my current copy. I need a copy to share. I love your site.

  86. Kristin Chapman says

    I have been on and off this plan for about 5 months, but without the book. I am struggling with candida and adrenal fatigue so it’s a lot to deal with at the beginning! But I really think having the book would help me stay on plan a little better!

  87. Lorie says

    I would love to give this to my sister. It has changed my way of looking at food and I love the 3 hours start over if I do fail. Thank you for these giveaways.

  88. Jani Miller says

    I would love to have a copy of this book! I have been wanting to start this planned for a long time and have been needing to get my hands on this great tool!

  89. says

    I have hear so much about this book, that I would love to use it myself, but more importantly gift it to my mom. She could REALLY use the help and motivation.

  90. Brittany Horn says

    Thank you so much for a great opportunity to take part and celebrating the relaunch of your site. I have thoroughly enjoyed your blog web page and it has really helped me understand THM. I am applying for the book giveaway to try and win a book for my mom and sister. Both my parents have had weight issues as long as I can remember and blood pressure and blood sugar issues as well. My sister and mother both have hypothyroidism and my mom has adrenal gland issues and I whole heartedly think that THM can help them and change their lives. They both have strict budgets and financially are not able to buy a book yet, so winning a book in this giveaway I think can bless one of them with the chance to take hold of their weight issues and enjoy some food freedom and increase their self esteem and become the woman the Lord created them to be inside and out. Thank you again for creating your blog and for this giveaway opportunity. Blessings to you!!!

  91. Lezlie says

    I would love to win this book for my friend:) I’ve lost 35-40 lbs on THM. I love this style of eating and I feel so much healthier!

  92. Kim says

    I would love to win this book for my dad. He has been a Type 2 Diabetic for over 10 years and is slowly climbing up on his insulin dosage. He has tried many of the recipes my sister and I have prepared and loved them! However, he is retired and on a fixed income. I would gift this book to him and my stepmom. He already has a built in support system! :) Thank you!

  93. Gina says

    I would love to win this book for my mom so I can get my book back from her. Lol! I love your site and all your great recipes!

  94. Anna Mae Wengerd says

    I really love THM. This is an awesome giveaway. Thank you for all your amazing recipes. What I sew so far on this group. Love to loss some weight n get on the health side to. Maybe I would feel better to.

  95. Trish says

    I would love to win a book for my childhood friend. We both now live on opposite coasts and I have had success on THM. I would love the same success for her! Thanks so much!

  96. Melody says

    I’d love to win the THM book! I have the e version but have found myself wishing so many times that I had the print version as well! Would be so helpful to have when talking to friends as well!

  97. Tiffany says

    If I were to win this book then I would use it for my family and friends who want to learn more about THM but are not sure if they “can.” You know as well as I do that if they read those first few chapters they’ll be full of hope and optimism that this is the right plan for them. That’s what I would like to do for others, provide a tool for them to glimpse the possibility that they can be healthy and happy and FULL. I sure do miss my book when it’s out on loan and it would be nice to have an extra one to pass from person to person. Thanks!

  98. Ashley says

    I am so glad to see your blog back! It has been a huge help in getting me stated on my THM journey! If I win the book, it will be for my mom. She was widowed in July 2014 and would love to get healthy herself. Thanks, Gwen!

  99. Stephanie says

    I would love to win a copy of THM to pass on to others. My husband is the pastor of a small church, and as others have watched us follow THM, many have have taken interest and we try to give them a copy of the book. Four of the books we have given away have been to missionaries who knew they needed to make changes, but had no idea what they could change to finally get some positive results. With three of the these four, it was the husband who lovingly asked their wives to look into THM. These families have been so blessed with all of the hard work Pearl and Serene have poured into this book, each one having different health issues to deal with and each one finding health and healing. Thank you Gwen for this opportunity to help others.

  100. Hannah Yoder says

    I would love to win. I would gift it to one of my sister in laws or my mom. If my mom could take the time to grasp these concepts in THM it would set her free!!!!

  101. says

    Hello there! I’m so excited to have a chance to have a book to share with a friend. I’ve had ladies ask me what I have been doing and to be able to give them a book would be awesome.


  102. Jill says

    I would love to win this book. I just gave mine to my mom in the hopes it will change her life as it has mine. I am feeling a bit lost without my book. :)

  103. Noreen Bowen says

    I would love to win this! My 22 year old son just spent 4 days in ICU due to having type 1 diabetes and not knowing it until he ended up with “new onset DKA” I am trying to implement more of the THM way of eating for our whole family as we knew diabetes has been in my husbands side of the family in older generations, but now it has reared its ugly head in the younger generation!

  104. GrammaH says

    I would love to bless my pastor’s wife with her own copy of THM…I’m having withdrawals/missing my book as she works her way through it!

  105. /*/megan/*/a/*/h/*/ says

    Winning TRIM HEALTHY MAMA would help me give my 3 month old nursing baby and my toddler a head start on health and teach me a better way to cook and eat. I am frequently referring others to it and would like to give first hand info to them. Unfortunately, buying the book doesn’t fit into my family’s Dave Ramsey plan right now.

  106. GrammaH says

    I would love to be able to give a copy of THM to my pastor’s wife….I’m going through withdrawals/missing my book, while she works her way through my copy 😉

  107. Jennifer Helm says

    My sister would love a book. I am constantly telling her about THM. I love it. I can’t stop talking about it so I would love for her to own the book too. I gave the book to two other family members at Christmas and they love it. She was sad that I did not give one to her. Whoops. Help a girl out.

  108. Holly says

    I want it for both. I bought a copy and lent it out yet still have to get it back. I want to get this one for me so my other can be lent more freely.

  109. says

    I would love to win another book to give away. I talk to many people about THM and I do not like to lend out my book because of how often I use it. So I would like the opportunity to give this one away to a friend who is considering THM!!

  110. Jinseon says

    I was introduced to Trim Healthy Mama by my friends who had of course lost some weight. They also told me about your blog! :) So I’m kinda getting the idea.. and following some of the recipes.. My weight fluctuates quite a bit.. I want to say I’ve love 4 lbs after a week or so.. but I would love to read the whole book. Only the problem is I’m a broke college student. I mean, literally!

  111. Ginny S. says

    I’d love to win a copy of this book for my mom. I have my own copy but can’t share since she lives in another state. I love THM and think it would help her!

  112. Julie says

    Would love to win this book. Ran into two women at grocery store and they were so excited to see a certain bread. I was wondering what the fuss was about and they told me about this book and your website. Would love to have this opportunity must have been a sign for me to start a new path.

  113. Bridgett says

    I’d love to win the THM book so that I can gain a better understanding of what seems to be an amazing approach to living a happy healthy life, also so that I can share what I’ll learn with my mom so we can do this together!! :)

    Thank you for your dedication to this lifestyle and all of your followers!

  114. Suzanne says

    I’d love a copy of the book. I borrowed it from the library and dreaded giving it back! It would be a true blessing to own a copy!

  115. Barb O'Donnell says

    I would love to be blessed with one of your Trim Healthy Mama books to give to a sweet friend. I just use mine so much….hard to share this early in my journey. Fingers & toes crossed!

  116. Kathy says

    I would love to have this book to share with a friend who is a single mom. She has two sons, one in middle school and other in 4th grade. She works very hard to provide for them. She has no help from their father. I have great admiration for her faithfulness and love of the Lord. She has several physical issues that have caused her to gain weight. She has struggled for several years trying to eat healthy. She is so frustrated that she has not lost any weight. I would love to bless her with this book. It has given me hope and a new focus. Giving her hope would be the best gift I could give her now.

  118. Janet Haldeman says

    Would love to be chosen. Will give it to my sister who really wants to get started but can’t afford the book yet.

  121. Sara Parker says

    i would love to win this book to have a better understanding of the THM lifestyle and then pass it on to my mother who could greatly benefit from it. Thanks!

  126. Annette says

    I’d love to win this book – to share with my family. My parents could benefit greatly by shedding some weight. My mom is in pain daily with bad knees and aching feet, and I believe THM could be what helps them both get to a new healthy!

  130. lisacorder says

    how do we enter to have a chance to win the book. I have a missionary friend in mexico who told me about thm. i haven’t been able to get the book. I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired and would love to enter. Thanks! I really appreciate your site. My friend also told me your site was the best place to get a handle on thm :) Thanks

  131. Melissa says

    Thanks for your amazing recipes..I would love to win a copy of the book..been saving for 6 months and still not able to purchase.

  132. Angie says

    After struggling my entire life with PCOS and weight gain I successfully lost 130 lbs only to have my life turned upside down. For the past 3 years I have been fighting a major medical crisis. I along with my daughter, two sisters, mother, and 5 nephews have now been DX with Ehlers Danlis Syndrome, Mast Cell Activation Disorder, POTs, and possible MTHFR mutation. I also have a brain tumor and scattered white matter lesions.

    The thing that has upset me the post is teasing most of the weight that I worked so hard to loose. Due to my medical condition I am not able to loose through exercise. I have always had a slow metabolism but now it’s doesn’t even show up for the fight.

    I was recently introduced to THM via several friends. They have had huge success. My daughter and I have started trying to use the plan but we understand the book is critical to success. Due to mounting medical bills and me having to close my business we find it difficult to pay for extra expenses.

    We would be eternally greatful to receive a copy of the book. It would be well used. One book would be a double blessing in our home alone. Thank you in advance for blessing others with this exciting opportunity.

  133. Tammy Mitchell says

    I would love to win this book because my sister in law has been using it and looks and feels great and I would like to try to be healthier.

  134. says

    Sharing our book with friends who are interested means I don’t always have it available. Would love to have another so that I can stay on track while still being able to share.

  135. Jackie L says

    I would love to win this book. I have been following THM for a few months now and am intrigued. I go to buy the products and book and then close out. We are working on paying down our debt and I am having trouble thinking it is ok to make this purchase right now. At my highest I was 235 pounds pregnant with my first child. I have followed other diets and prior to getting pregnant with my second got down to the 160s where I have remained. I will be turning 34 next month and my goal for my 35th is to reach a healthy weight. I am only 5’4″. There were short periods of my life where I have been more fit but for the most part I have been overweight. I don’t want to be that person and I know as I get older it will only get more difficult to shed. I need to have more energy and find the excitement and light in life to enjoy this time with my children.

  136. Monica Johnson says

    I would love to win a book to give to a friend of mine from church. It has been a blessing to me and I’d love to bless someone else with the information that Pearl & Serene give with this book.

  137. Monica Johnson says

    I visit your facebook page often… not sure why it wont let me claim that entry. I was able to get the twitter and comment entries to work but not the facebook entry. Blessings…

  138. Amber Osburn says

    I purchased the book for myself before Christmas but didn’t start on plan until January 2nd. I’ve been sharing with my Mom my progress and told her I wanted to buy her a book, she said she didn’t want me to waste my money on her…silly lady.
    I would love for her to enjoy the new way eating that Trim Healthy Mama has shown me.
    Your recipes are so amazing, I love them!
    Thank you!!!!

  139. Lynn says

    I’ve heard many good things about THM, and have several friends who have really benefited from changing the way they eat. I’d love to have a copy of my own someday!
    Love your blog, now and always <3

  140. anna says

    I would love to get the book for myself. I have struggled with my weight for years. I would like to get our whole family eating healthy so that my daughter doesn’t have to go through the same struggles.

  141. Pat May says

    I have the book but my sister who has fibromyalgia needs it. I will give it to her, She will love your website. At 63 she has just gotten custody of 2 teen grandsons.

  142. Deborah says

    I would love to own this book because it is written by two down-to-earth women who have some great ideas for losing weight… my constant occupation!!

  143. Christina says

    I recently read an abbreviated version of the Trim Healthy Mama plan in my favorite magazine. I feel like I NEED this book. I know fads don’t work. I know I can’t stick to a super restrictive fad diet. I refuse to eat fat free sugar free overly modified “diet” foods. And I need something that my husband will be able to follow with me. I asked for the book for my birthday in March but winning it here would be such a blessing.

  144. says

    I’d love to win this for me. I just had a little boy 2 weeks ago and I’d love to start this lifestyle change to help me lose weight. Although, I am done below my pre-pregnancy weight. I was a pretty big girl when I got pregnant in the first place. So, this book would help me greatly.

  145. Joyce Marie says

    Would love to win this book for my friend Kathy. She is struggling with diabetes and I know THM can help her. Thanks for the opportunity!

  146. Jessica says

    I am a Momma who wants to get back into a healthy way of life and who is done with trying and failing at all these fad diets. I know this will come down to a lifestyle change and I hope to pass this along to my family.

  147. Margaret says

    I would love to win this book, I’ve been following you for the last month, trying to learn about the program and your recipes.

  148. Courtney Mount says

    Gwen your THM success is a constant encouragement to me. If I win, the book will go to my mom. I would love for her to do ThM with me.

  149. Andrea Hardy says

    I would love to win this book for my mom. I just recently was blessed by a friend with my book and I’d like my mom to have one also. We are both very excited to start living the THM way and lose some much needed weight. Thank you so much for your consideration!

  150. erika says

    What a generous giveaway! I would like to win another copy because mine has been lost in the move and I am ready to get back on track since we are settling in the new house :) Thank you for the opportunity, Gwen!

  151. Michelle Parker says

    I have been following your Facebook page for quite some time and would love to finally understand better how to follow THM…. Unfortunately, my budget doesn’t allow for the book right now. Thank you so much for this opportunity!!!

  152. Kari says

    I’d love to win this book for myself. I’ve read the book, but it was borrowed from a friend. Every time I’ve thought I would be able to spend money and buy the book I’ve found myself with unexpected dental bills and sicknesses of my 3 kids. This would be such a blessing!!
