Default April Weight Loss 2016

April Weight Loss 2016
April Weight Loss Challenge 2016 Weight Loss Adventure with Prize!!
On April 1st, 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 percentage lost. I will announce the winner on May 3rd.

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

Private message (PM) me for the 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 the winning "skinny quarters aka FQ's" and to be declared the "biggest loser" for the month.
You cannot win 2 months in a row.

Chit Chat is encouraged, as wells as what are you working on. Please stay positive and uplifting as possible to keeps us all on track. Share tips, recipes, encouraging words and {{{HUGS}}}
March is hopefully the beginning of spring. Try something new, new foods new exercise.So I thought a good FQ theme for April would be polka dots.. This would make a beautiful quilt for getting ready for spring. In April we need to work really hard because bathing suit season is getting close, are you ready?. We are all so used to doing for others. Remember sometimes it is ok to put yourself first. So lets see how we can play with some your choice of FQ's. Please send quality fabric that you would want to receive in return. As always if you don't have the theme, send what you have. If you don't have a FQ, then send a linear 1/4 yard. If you have signed up to be in the running for the prize, please send your FQ to the hostess by the 15th of the month. As the winner has worked hard for her prize.

Eat healthy, exercise, make wise choices and lose weight but most of all have fun!!!

Sign up deadline to be a part of the PRIZE adventure April 4th at 9 pm cst. You are encourage to contribute to the thread even if you are not in for the prize.

To let me know you are participating post on the thread and then send a PM for the mailing address. Our FQ theme for April is polka dots..

Our FQ theme for the next 3 months is: April-polkadots, May- kids, June-yellow. It saves on postage to send 3 months at a time if you plan to stay in. 3 months will fit in an envelope that is about 5x7. One month fits fine in a regular envelope. This seems to be the least expensive way send them. Good luck everyone.

I am gonna sit this month out - tired of just handing fabric to someone who cares enough to actually work to lose weight.

So I'll be lurking this month.

So, I have changed my mind and I am in for April. Where is everybody?

I am trying to be sugar-free this month. May divorce that man if he doesn't stop bringing home these 'bargains'. It is no bargain on my waistline.

Leann I agree, my DH keeps bringing home candy etc. He has been on a huge ice cream kick. It just seems like every time I am trying to behave myself he does this. He ordered a pizza the other day. I LOVE LOVE pizza. I can't stay out of it. Luckily the grandkids showed up and ate a bunch so I couldn't pig out like I usually do.

Glad to hear you changed your mind. My hubby is bad like that too but since I have been trying to cut out sugar he hides his goodies in the garage. I'm also going to try to go sugar free in April. I won't be starting until thursday though. My lunch group is going to Olive Garden on wednesday so that will be my last sugar day for the month.
I hope we get some more people to join us. Time is running out.

I didn't realize you had to "subscribe" to the thread in order to have a meetup, conversation and follow along with the group. Maybe others don't know that either?

Everyone is welcome to join in on the chit chat here but if you want to be in the contest for the fat quarters, you need to say you are "in" by the end of the day on the 4th of the month.
