    August 2013 Weight Loss Adventure with a Prize!!!!!

    On August 1st, weigh yourself and write it down. Please DO NOT send it to me. On August 31st, weigh yourself again and PM me your loss. This is weight lost not percentage lost. I will announce the winner on September 3rd.

    The prize is a monthly themed FQ pot. PM me for mailing address, ALL FQ's should be mailed by the 10th of the month.

    You need to post on the thread at least once a week to be eligible for the winning "skinny quarters" FQ pot and to be declared the "biggest loser" for the month.

    You cannot win 2 months in a row.

    Chit Chat is allowed, as well as WAYWO (what are you working on). Please stay positive and uplifting as possible to keep us all on track. Share any tips, recipes, encouraging words and {{{{HUGS}}}}

    The Prize is a themed FQ from each member who signs up. Once a winner is declared, I will contact the winner and the FQ's will be mailed by the 6th.

    As summer is moving along, we are starting to think about cooler temperatures. So to help up desiring those cooler days of fall the theme this month is COLORS OF FALL. What reminds your of fall. Please send quality fabric that you would want to receive. As always if you don't have the theme, send what you have. If you don't have a FQ, you can send a linear 1/4 yard. If you have signed up to be in the running for the prize please send in your FQ to the hostess by the 10th of the month. As the winner has worked hard for her prize. It could be you.

    Eat healthy, exercise, make wise choices and lose weight, but most of all have fun!!

    Sign up deadline to be part of the prize is August 5th at 9 am central time. You are encouraged to contribute to the thread even if not in for the prize. All are welcome even just for support.

    When mailing in your FQ please include your screen name, real name and mailing info.

    To sign up for this, just post you are joining us on the thread, and PM me for the the mailing address.

    HAPPY WEIGHT LOSS ADVENTURE !!!!!

    Yeah, I know I am in. Going to work harder this month, but was not displeased with the weight loss last month. Listening to your pointers and paying attention to the calorie intake helped me out. Also attitude got better. Looking forward to a happy month!

    Alright, I am home and in control of what I am eating (for the most part) I am in for this month. What is the fabric for September. I usually like to send more than one month.

    I would have loved the batik's but, alas, I knew that I would not be around to weight in or anything and of course, being on the road for 5 weeks I gained weight. Now to lose what I gained as well as lose what needs to be lost ( lots of lbs)

    Sounds good to me, then be sure to post a picture each week so we can stay focused on the prize.

    Batiks really caught our attention, I vote for doing them again. I can't give up batiks twice; I'll fight harder next time
