    MAY 2012 Weight Loss Adventure With A Prize!

    On May 1st weigh yourself and write it down. Do NOT send it to me. On May 31st 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 10th of the month. I will contact the winner and announce the winner with the number of FQs they will receive.
    May is preparing for the summer months. This month's theme is anything that reminds you of summer. 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 4th 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 MAY 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 again.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    im in again.

    remember those returning, The po box is no longer a valid address. I have canceled the PO Box, due to the cost. So remember to PM me for my mailing address.

    Good luck everyone.

    I am here too. Since I had weight loss surgery I know I will not be eligible for the prize but I need support more than I need fabric right now.



    I am looking forward to losing more than I did last month.

    I'm in again also. Sent the FQ's (really hubby went to the post office), so hoping that the scale will show some loss again next month.

    Had BLT for lunch - it was so good. First one of the year. Can't wait to plant the garden and have some fresh veggies ourselves. We love beets - so am going to plant a lot and in a new space.

    Was at grocery store today. So wanted a candy bar, purchased a Diet Pepsi instead. Don't know which one would be the worst. Have only had about 1/4 of the bottle so far but the night isn't over and Mom is pushing "buttons".

    Help me Lord to stay on track and be a nicer person. Thank you for your blessings!!!

    Cindy, can you remind us of the colors for the next few months? Sorry I didn't write them down.

    Welcome JudyMN, this is a great group of motivated people. Fell off the wagon end of month and wanting to get back in the running again. A loss is a loss though. I need to remind myself. Be good to ME!!!

    Worked out in yard this afternoon and it felt so good. Hoping to be able to get a few more things done again tomorrow. The sun helps my depression so much.

    Judy, love the bargello. Have looked at that pattern but haven't picked colors yet.

    Take care everyone - remember - BE GOOD TO YOU.
