    December 2012 Weight Loss Adventure with a Prize!!!!

    On December 1st weigh yourself and write it down. Do NOT send it to me. On December 31st weigh yourself again and PM me with your loss. This is weight lost not % lost. I will announce the winner January 3rd.

    PM me for address. FQs need to be received no later than the 15th 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.

    December has most of us in full swing of the upcoming holidays and for some ready for it to be over, as we prepare for the new year. So we are looking for loveso Red is our color of the month. 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 December 4th at 9 p.m. CST, with your FQ received by the 15th 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 DECEMBER 4TH. 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."

    I'm in. December is a tough month. My first party is tomorrow, 2 next week and 2 the following week. That's before any family get togethers. We'll have at least 3 of those.

    I'm in again!! I've been off the radar for a little bit. Thanksgiving, feeling like crap, and working, time slipped away. Only a 1lb loss in November, but I'll take everything I can!!!!!

    Let's see how December works for me. 10 days and counting till the gallbladder comes out. Whenever I feel bad I think "I should have had it done last month". Hoping to make it till the 12th, no emergency surgery!!!!

    Taking Mom on a bus trip this Saturday, back to a little town we love to visit. A little site seeing, and christmas shopping. Should be a wonderful day and I'll get a lot of walking in for sure.

    Decorating the house this week too. I love when everything is up and lite and warm and cozy!!!! Hate to take it down come January, makes the house feel empty and cold. Oh well...........time to celebrate the reason for the season!!!!

    I was thinking of sitting this one out as my weight is stalled and I'm not happy, but you got me with the red. Coral is my favorite color, but I like reds and pinks a lot and I have enough weight to lose that I could win.

    I've had a tiring weekend. Thursday night was an away game for my GS. Friday I went to pick my friend up from dialysis and she couldn't leave because she was bleeding. Our local hospital shipped her to Traverse City for surgery. I went with her both places as no one should come out of surgery alone. I couldn't drive her - nor would I want to, but it another 100 miles on my old body. That put me making potato salad for the funeral in the wee hours of the morning. Saturday I worked the luncheon so I was up by 7:30. I had told the organizer I could only do 2 hours on concrete floors, but the person in charge wasn't up to serving 224 people, so I had to stay through the serving. I hate taking over but it needed to be done, so whatever. It went well and that's what's important. I did apologize to her and it was accepted as she's a very nice person. Then I goofed. After I laid down a bit, I went Christmas shopping. I came home with nothing except a stiff body. Okay, enough whining.

    It's dreary outside - all our snow is being washed away but Lily and Moira don't care so we're out of here soon. I will remember to do interval walking and speed up periodically. If I'm going to win, I need to raise my metabolism, lol.

    I'm going to clean the living room so I can decorate. I taught my multiple children that Santa doesn't come to a dirty house - we even washed windows and such because my house was so clean their wasn't anything else to do. My youngest daughter is cleaning house now because she can't decorate without doing so. Ah, well. I could have done more damage than that.

    I wish us all luck this holiday season - take a little of whatever high calorie yummy that calls your name with the emphasis on little. If you deprive yourself, you'll just overeat when you do start. Have three small bites, savoring each one, then wait a few minutes before you finish it. You may be able to not finish it.

    Have a good evening, y'all.

    Wel I am off to a good start for the month. I was planning on running in to the mall on the way home from work to return something at Victorias Secret and buy a couple of things. THen I was coming home to jump on the elliptical. I ended up running in to some co-workers and going to Applebee's for a drink. Had a drink and an appetizer. 3 Hours later I finally made it home. No exercise for me tonight.
    Congrats SewNSo. Keep up the good work.
