    August 2012 weight loss adventure with a prize

    On August 1st weigh yourself and write it down. Do NOT send it to me. On August 31st weigh yourself again and PM me with your loss. This is weight lost not % lost. I will announce the winner September 2nd.

    PM me for address. FQs need to be received no later than the 10th of month.

    You cannot win 2 months in a row.

    Chit chat is allowed, as well as WAYWO, (what are we working on). Please stay positive and uplifting as that is what keeps us on track. Come to this thread for tips, recipes, encouragement and {{{{HUGS}}}}}}

    The prize is a themed FQ. At the end of the month, I will mail all the FQs received to the winner by the 5th of the month. I will contact the winner and announce the winner with the number of FQs they will receive.

    August is the ending of summer and preparing for the cooler months. This month's theme is fall favorites. Please send quality what you would want to receive. As always if you cannot send the theme fabric please send what you have. If you don't have a FQ, send a linear 1/4 yard. If you have signed up to be in the competition, please send the FQ to hostess by the 10th of the month. The winner has worked hard for this reward.

    Eat healthy, exercise, try and lose weight but most of all have fun!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sign up deadline to be included in the Prize Adventure is August 3rd at 9 p.m. CST, with your FQ received by the 10th of month. You can always contribute to the thread, but it is only fair to have a cutoff for those trying to win.

    TO PARTICIPATE, JUST SIGN IN HERE ON THIS THREAD BEFORE AUGUST 3RD. THERE IS NO NEED TO PM FOR PARTICIPATION, JUST YOUR ENDING WEIGHT LOSS FOR THE MONTH.
    You must sign into the thread at least weekly to be eligible for the winning "skinny quarters" or to be declared "best loser for the month."

    This weeks Taboo: No extra snacks or snacking..... your mid morning snack and bedtime snack is O.K. If you do have to have that extra snack journal it and look back over the week and see how many times you did have that extra bite or bites, also maybe list the reason you had that snack.

    HI Cindy, Hope you had a good time out of town. I am in. Not sure I will do well. My DS is here from Japan and he wants me to cook all of his favorites. Also he keeps ordering pizza and brings home late night hamburgers. He is killing me. His wife will be here on August 11th. I am hoping she will teach me how to make a couple of Japanese dishes. Good luck to all. I am almost afraid to weigh in for July. I really need to follow this weeks taboo.

    Count me in again. I'd sent you a pm saying I slacked and would mail my fat quarter to the winner.....but actually sounds easier if Like Nancia's request, you just take one from my june winnings for July and August (if that's ok with you). Thanks so much. Good Luck everyone! I'm down 3lbs for July.......not as good as June but still going the right direction .

    I'm in again. Last month went nowhere but I am back to exercising-now to focus on better eating.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    My son had only been here from Japan for a week and I have already gained 3 pounds. GRRRRRRRRRR! He is killing me. I was down 4 last month. He will be here for a month. His birthday is tomorrow so I will have to make a lemon meringue pie. My new pants I bought for school this year will be too small by the time school starts.
