    June 2012 Weight Loss adventure with a prize!!!!

    On June 1st weigh yourself and write it down. Do NOT send it to me. On June 30th weigh yourself again and PM me with your loss. This is weight lost not % lost. I will announce the winner June 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.
    June is the beginning of summer. This month's theme is any combination of red, white and blue. 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 the 3rd of each month at 9 p.m. CST, with your FQ postmarked 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 MARCH 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."

    I'm in again.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Cindy, I'm in again.

    Just read where loosing weight is easier when we do it with others. Sometimes that is true, because when we are down, others can pick us up or the other way around.

    So ladies, we are in this together - be good to you. I have a refrig magnet that says "Nothing tastes as good, as looking thin feels". Know I need to remember this is a life change not a month or quarter or year - but a lifetime. I so wanted a treat today - I really wanted a candy bar or donut or something like that, but knew that if I had one, I couldn't stop. So I settled for a dinner roll. I get to have it for breakfast tomorrow. Now I'm really trying to make healthy choices. Got lots of veggies and fruit to go with the roll, so I patted myself on the back and walked out of the store feeling better.

    I'm in. I sat out last month because I felt that I was wasting your time reading my posts if I was not losing weight. Then I missed all of you and ended up posting anyway. I will send the winner a FQ when Cindy announces the name.

    Judy, that's 1 1/2 pounds you don't have to carry around - think 6 sticks of butter. Any loss is to be celebrated.

    As I thought I flatlined last month so time to take a deep breath and get in the groove again. I have lost inches though because my clothes fit better so I'll take that for now. Am I the onlyy one who reads in disbelief that someone has lost 20 pounds and many dress sizes. Not I. Although I've lost well the past 2 months I am still wearing the smae clothes-they are just looser. I know it's posted somewhere but couldn't find it- what is this month's FQ theme?
