    Thanks for the reminder Cindy. Sign me up. Skipping December entirely was enough of a break-have to start again sometime. Might as well be now...
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Welcome back, I am sending many of our missing members from months back to see if we can help each other kick start the new year.


    I am going to be looking for ways to help encourage, it may be in small ways like a quote of the day or anything that could help each one of us in the right direction with our weight loss.

    Well i need to stay offline for a few hours, have a quilt that i must go quilt and get the binding done,.....has to be delivered on wednesday after work.

    Check in later.

    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.

    January brings us into the New Year, many of us have been dealing with lots of white.as in the snow. Our theme of the month will be neutrals. 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 January 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 JANUARY 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."

    Okay, my new habit will be a tough one for me. I will read a magazine through and pass it on. I will not add it to my paper clutter. My cluttered bedroom leads to a body cluttered with fat. Getting rid of the current problem is a separate issue. BTW, I have a lead foot, too. I have learned to drive no more than 5 or 6 mph over the speed limit and for now I can live with that. A ticket for 10 over would be too many yards of fabric.

    I haven't made my New Year's resolutions yet, but I know what's on top of the list, and unlike most Americans, it's not to lose weight. I will think of them while I sew today and print them out this evening.

    What to eat today? I am eating from my freezers now. Not because of a monetary issue, but because they are cluttered, too. It's too late to thaw pork for a favored crockpot dish, so I'm thinking chicken. The chicken, rice and black beans mixture I found in the freezer yesterday was delicious. I'll have to remember what I used for seasoning - low sodium taco, I would guess.

    No diet soda here. If I were to drink anything like that, I'd have a smaller amount of sugared rather than diet. For me it's a non issue as I can't have Nutrasweet, but for others, I'd look into the research that says diet soda upsets your insulin levels and makes you hungier. The sweet taste triggers a release of insulin to deal with the sugar that's coming. The sugar doesn't come so the insulin wrecks havoc on your body rather than digesting sugar. Interesting concept for soda drinkers to consider. I don't drink any (almost) because of osteoporosis, which is now better and I want it stay that way. I had half a Coke on Christmas. Several of my children were shocked as they haven't seen that since 1994.

    Off to take a bath, quilt and clean my computer desk. That's enough for today. A Health magazine came in the mail - I don't subscribe - so I need to finish it and pass it on. Lots of good information in there. I will weigh myself after my bath and write it on the calendar (small). I will also write a big, colorful, projected weight loss number. I'll decide what that will be after I see my current weight.

    I am losing weight and getting healthier.

    Sounds like a great deal! Been on this weight reduction since 10-10-12 doing well (-27) but the boredom sets in so this is a good motivator and the best thing is spending time with quilting buddies. What's not to like! I'm in. Linda B NE Florida
