    Have a great relaxing time in Hilton Head. We started the day with a water aerobics class. Then headed to our cabana at the beach. The weather is great. About 83 with a gentle breeze. I spent a lot of my day sitting in a lounge chair reading a book with a tasty drink in my other hand. We got in the pool a few times and in the ocean. The waves were a little high today so we didin't spend a lot of time in the ocean. My DD and I went for about a 3 mile walk down the beach. Now we are cooking shish-ka bobs on the grill. Man this is the life. I need to find me someone to give me the money to continue like this.
    One of the golf cart shuttle drivers is a great cook. THe aerobics teacher was telling us about his awesome cheesecakes. He doesn't give out his recipes but he did tell me how he makes it. A maple bacon cheesecake topped with peaches and several other unique ones. Apparently a couple of local restaurants sell them. I think we are going to head to one tomorrow. Hope I don't gain too much weight.

    Pat, enjoy your vacation; they come so few & far between. Relaxing at the beach sounds pretty good to me right now.

    Okay I'm in again. I really need to up my game, I'd like to lose some serious belly before the family reunion at the end of July. The last couple of weeks in May I quit my walking and so I ended up at a stalemate for the month. So this month I'm getting back on my feet. I think I will try to walk before work instead of waiting until evening.

    meanmom Hilton Head sounds wonderful! A few splurges on vacation are good for you. You will come home more rested and motivated.

    Lisa what has the doctor said about the swelling in your leg? My left foot, it's the one with the toe I keep breaking, swells everytime I stand too long or if it gets really hot. I keep forgetting to ask the doctor when I am in for something else, and it isn't bothering me enough to go in just for that.

    Kathleen congrats on making the 160's, isn't it wonderful to see the numbers change! I haven't seen the 160's in years, maybe this will be my year.

    Pam I am looking forward to having babies to lug around again, but not quite yet since DS is still in college and not working even. I think it would be easier to plop the little one on your hip instead of the car seat, remember when it seemed like it was a permanent fixture?

    I looked up info on the cinnamon and honey for weight loss. All the sites I read stressed that it had to be raw honey, not the processed stuff from the grocery. Guess I'll start checking out the farm markets this week. Here's a link to an article on livestrong - http://www.livestrong.com/article/10...y-lose-weight/

    I'm "sort of" in for June. You have my fat quarter already. I will be traveling for a month from the 17th of June till the 17th of July, home for two days then gone for 5 more. I don't own a lap top. So I may not be able to report in, I won't be near a scale either.........

    Oh well, hope everyone does great!


    My newest Grandson, Caleb Austin, was born May 29th. I am now Grandma to 4 precious babies. I am so blessed!!!!

    Good morning lovely ladies! I am new to this Quilt forum so I'm not quite sure how everything works, however, I am interested in joining this weight loss challenge. I'm guessing PM means private message and I need to do that to get the address to mail the FQ (which I figured out after a while meant fat quarter) ha ha. I'm a slow learner, lol. Really need to lose more than a few pounds and hope having some buddies and a challenge will be the remedy. Working on a "Quilt Value" quilt for my 4yo DGS and really need to get busy with that so I can present it to him in July when he comes to visit. I only have about 200-300 HST so far (which is the easy part; it will be the laying it out that will be the challenge). I would probably categorize my experience in quilting somewhere between beginner and intermediate, so always looking for the wisdom from all levels. Ok off to the gym (even though it's a rainy stay in the house and quilt day). Hope everyone has a beautiful and productive day !

    Newdoda, welcome to the group. Yep, you need to get that FQ (also called a skinny quarter in our group) off to Cindy. Keep posting through the month, letting us know of your progress. Post pictures of your quilts as well, it's fun to see what everyone else is working on. Keep working on the loss and you could win all the beautiful fabrics that are sent in each month! Welcome again..

    Live today as if it may be your last, for who knows...

    My June FQ went postal today. I was able to workout in the pool today as well. My walking group switched from walking in the heat to walking in the pool. I had a nice 1 1/2 hour workout and didn't melt after we were finished.
