    I will weigh in on January 2nd, as I will be back at work where we have a medical scale. The one at home is not at all accurate. If you get on and off it the weight varies by up to 7 pounds.

    There have been request in the past to know what the FQ themes are for 3 months at a time. For those who wish to send 3 months at a time, here is the list through March

    January Neutrals
    February: turquoise/shades of blues/greens
    March: Pinks/Coral as in the colors of the sunset.

    I cant wait to see what comes in from everyone.

    Hmmm......I want to win both Feb and March because those colors sound so awesome. Too bad you can't win 2 months in a row.

    Okay I am in too.. There Patti. )) I'm joining you. This will be my first time too and Painiacs and I are going to do this together.
    There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING...

    Welcome to the new ones joining us. Here is a place for encouragement, venting and anything else you need to do or share. We are not a judgemental group. We all have to start somewhere. I know a year ago I was up to 250 and today I am down to 184. The weight didnt happen over night and it wont go away overnight. I lose 1 lb at a time.

    So Welcome to:
    Painiacs
    Tothill
    Airwick156

    I am still looking for some of our long running member to join in. I may need to send some private messages to encourage those who have dropped out.

    Good luck everyone.

    In an hour and 40 minutes, a new year begins - a time for new beginnings. I'm in for another month - well, more than that. Coral in March is a real hook for me, though aqua in February is a favorite, too.

    Happy New year to all willing to try this adventure, both newcomers and returnees. One day at a time, one pound at a time we can this together.

    Ok I love coral and turquoise. Somehow i will have to cheat so I can win both. I know I can't win 2 months in a row. I had better get back on the good food train. Sending the last of the junk food home with DD today. I think I get the award for last month for most junk food consumed in 2 weeks.
    Happy New year to everyone. Time for a new beginning.

    Taboo Tuesday - give up your old ways and create a new habit starting today. It can be anything, doesn't have to be specifically something to do with eating - although that's what we, on this thread look at. some ideas: How about switch to a diet soda vs full sugared one or sit down to eat your meal vs standing up or eat in the kitchen vs in front of the tv; drive within the speed limit vs over it...see what I mean - create a new habit starting today. Good eating everyone.

    I love the idea of creating something new, a new habit.............they say you have to work at it for about 17 days for it to stick as a habit. I am looking forward creating my new habit. I have a lead foot, so mine will be driving the speed limit.
