    November 2012 Weight Loss Adventure with a Prize

    On November 1st weigh yourself and write it down. Do NOT send it to me. On November 30th weigh yourself again and PM me with your loss. This is weight lost not % lost. I will announce the winner December 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.

    November we are into fall and heading into winter. The theme for Shades of Blue and White for the reminder of snow and sky. 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 November 4th at 9 p.m. CST, with your FQ received 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 NOVEMBER 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 on the fence on if I want to join the challenge part right now. I'm on the verge of writing IOU's to the post office this month. Depends on what goes on in the next week. But I'm definitely in for the chitchat and support

    I'm in too. I also lost 3 pounds, and that's good - I had been in a 'holding' pattern with no losses, but no gains either. With the holidays approaching, I need to get as much off now so my stomach shrinks and I eat less. Watch those munchies - in between snacks - and calorie laden foods.

    I'm in, too. November is blue in honor of snow - we had some Monday night and yesterday, but not the pretty stuff. December is red in honor of love and life, so it's not Christmas fabric. Two fat quarters is as many as I want to choose as once.

    Is a prewashed FQ okay? I have the prefect one for Nov - it may even come with a bonus, but it is prewashed. It didn't shrink at all so it wouldn't make any difference in a quilt of unwashed fabric.

    Anastasia, you can mail a FQ for less than $.75 unless you have a heavy one. A linear 1/4 yard from your stash is okay, too.

    I have mailed FQ's with l stamp. cut the selvages off, and measure exactly, fold them in half, etc, then in 3rds. can't remember the middle part. i just make it fit the envel. then i was told to put saran wrap around the FQ. i think the last 2 i sent cindy, i cut a little generoues, and used a little extra saran wrap. oh, and i stuck a $ in one. also. cause i took them into the p.o. and it cost me extra. and i had them wted before and then last time. so i know i was okay when i just used l stamp.
    back on track. doing okay. guess we 're even then van, right? hang in there. i lost good when i had my arm in a sling. papa was buying groc. and i just told him 'no junk food'.

    I'm in for November. I used to send my FQ for only one stamp then all of a sudden it quit going thru. I don't know why. Prewashed is ok with me. I guess 3 pounds was popular in October that is where I am too. Good luck everyone.

    I'm in for November. It will help to get me through the holiday and keep me good!!!! And who knows, I may lose more than weight this month. Maybe my gall bladder will go away too!! Let's hope so, I'm soooooo tired of this pain!!

    I already sent in my FQ's for the 4 months. Good luck to all. I did lose this month, down 6 more lbs. That makes 18 total for me in 3 months. I'm off my stride for 50 by the end of the year, but I'll take what I can get. I didn't put it on quick, I can't take it off quick either. Slow and steady works for me!!!!!
    The trouble with Trouble is.....It usually starts out like fun!!

    Wow, CHQ, 6# is fantastic. You ladies give me the push I need when I see that candy or cookie - I try to remember one of you and how we're all struggling together - and sometimes I don't eat the cookie. Set my mind on a slimmer me.

    Hi all, I was up then down then up but I ended with just a half pound down...bummer. I just have to do better in November so I am in again. I think I have the perfect FQ for the Nov winner will send if off in the next few days.
    we had over 200 kids come for trick or treat they were all dressed up so cute. Our Jasper had to meet each one, he had such a good time. All the candy is gone so no temptation left.
    Okay, Nov is a clean slate so stay strong and keep the "bad" foods out of the house. Hugs to all.
