    April 2013 Weight Loss Adventure with a Prize!!

    On April 1, weigh yourself and write it down. Do not send it to me. On April 30th, weigh yourself again and PM me your loss. This is weight lost not a precentage lost. I will announce the winner on May 3rd.

    The prize is a themed FQ from each member, once winner is declared, I will contact the winner and FQ's will be mailed by the 6th of the month.

    Private Message me for my mailing address. All FQ's should be mailed by the 15th of the month.

    You need to check in on the thread at least once a week to be eligible for winning the pot of "skinny Quarters" FQ's and to be declared the "biggest loser" for the month.

    Chit Chat is allowed, as well as WAYWO (what are you working on). Please stay positive and uplifting as possible to keep us on track. Share any tips, recipes, encouraging words and {{{HUGS}}}


    As we begin April, it is known that the April showers bring in May Flowers. The theme this month is FLORALS so let the flowers flow freely. Please send quality fabric that you want to receive. Do your best to send the theme, if not send what you have. If you don't have a FQ, you can send a linear 1/4 yard.

    The winner has worked hard for the prize. So please remember to mail your FQ.

    Remember to eat healthy exercise, make wise choices and lose weight. But most of all have fun!!!

    Sign up deadline is April 4th @ 10 pm CST. You are encouraged to contribute to te thread even if you are not in for the prize.

    To sign up you just need to post on the thread.

    Good Luck to each one of you.

    Of course I am in this month.

    I also know that many of you who have been on this adventure for a while like to send in more than one month. Here is the themes for 3 months

    I know may of you want to send in more than one month at a time.

    April is florals
    May is patroitic any form of red/white/blue together or alone.
    June is Purples

    Good luck

    I am in again. The hope of winning the skinny quarters keeps me motivated even though I haven't won. Oh June is purples, I will have a hard time parting with one of my precious purples. I will have to win in June to get them all.

    I'm in again. It helps to get encouragement from others. I'm going to look through my stash and maybe just go ahead and send in for the next 3 months. I'll have to see what I have.

    Welcome to those new aboard. I did better than I thought for March. 7pounds lost. At least I think that is what it was. I sent it to Cindy before I forgot. lol... I have some memory problems with my meds and all, so I always have to write it down. I do write down both at the start, and any gains along the way, and the losses, then the ending weight, and do my math. hehe..... Another month of fun, telling what any of us are working on, and how we are doing on our weight. Some stories of travels. Just a lot of fun. Sometimes prayers in order for someone.

    I spent the day with my SIL. We had a really good time. She bought a new sewing machine. She has done a little bit of sewing, mostly mending. We made a table runner, her first quilt project. I FMQ it for her and put on the binding. SHe needed to leave. She has no self confidence so she was thrilled t how good it came out.

    By checking in once a week, does that mean you have to post a message, or can you just visit the thread and read what is there?
