    April Weight Loss

    April 2014 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 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 allowed, as wells as WAYWO (what are you working on). Please stay posittive and uplifting as possible to keeps us all on track. Share tips, recipes, encouraging words and {{{HUGS}}}
    IN April we are hoping for the snow and frozen weather to go away and to see the spring flowers explode with lots of color. So lets see how we can play with some yellow and Orange 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 apart of the PRIZE adventure is March 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 just post on the thread and then send a PM for the mailing address.

    Remember if you sent your FQ's in advance, you still need to sign up on the new thread.

    I would definitely like to join. Do we just send one fat quarter for each month unless we would like to send more in advance?

    Thank you.

    I'm in again. No FQ for me for March, so I won't pm my "loss," (I have no loss this month).

    Is this the correct sign-up date? " Sign up deadline to be apart of the PRIZE adventure is March 4th at 9 pm cst." And where do I sign-up if I have not passed the date?

    You sign up just by posting on the thread that you are joining the weight loss and then send meanmom a private message for her mailing address. You can sign up any time from when the thread is posted to be a part of the weight loss adventure.

    Unless meanmom changes it, we have only been doing 3 months at a time, starting at the beginning of a quarter. After the 3 months she will list what the next 3 months themes will be. Knowing how crazy it can be trying to keep up with more than 3 months is a challenge.

    Welcome everyone. The FQ themes for the next 3 months is April-orange or yellow. May Flowers. June blues. I don't need to PM my loss as there isn't any again. I have been making bad choices. My DH keeps bringing hoe chocolate I can't seem to leave it alone.

    Know what you mean. I fell a year ago and fractured ribs. I am having a hard time. I just need to get moving again.

    I am new to the board as well as quilting. I am also having a hard time moving. I tore the meniscus in my right knee at work on January 29th and after trying rehab with poor results, had surgery on March 4th to remove part of the meniscus. Rehab is going well for the most part, but some days are definitely a lot harder than others. I had been close to my goal weight four years ago when I had to have my Thyroid removed and the weight started creeping back up. I am hoping that if I take one day at a time I will see some progress with my weight loss.

    My daughter just started working for My Fitness Pal in San Francisco and she had been after me to try it out. So far so good, at least it keeps me accountable in writing down my meals and snacks. Now, if I could increase my activity it might go a little better. Yesterday I was able to walk for 45 minutes in the morning and tried for a repeat in the afternoon but only managed to get in a 25 minute walk in the evening before my knee became too painful.

    With the craziness in my life, I am only going to be here for support not the prize. I am ready for my life to settle down some.

    Good luck to everyone.

    I'm in again. I will get my FQ's to you soon. We've been doing some yard work, so I've not been in my sewing room lately. I've been on my eating plan since Monday. Hopefully, I can stick with it.

    Pat, I think you can go back in your original post to change the deadline to April 4, not March 4.

    Spring is here - a lovely time to lose a few pounds. Good luck, everyone.

    Nah, the calendar says Spring and we did have a few days of sun, though not warm. My weather is always the same as yours, just a few hours later. Snow banks are receding. I may see my flower gardens by June.

    Ughhhh, I can't believe it in April. My first daffodil bloomed yesterday. I have hope. We've been able to take the kids on the playground again, finally. We all needed to get outdoors.

    I went back to yoga Tuesday night and boy did I sleep like a baby afterwards!! Now if I can start working on my eating habits again. I have not been good and actually had gained when I weighed in on the first. I feel awful. I was supposed to go to the by Wed night but was so exhausted when I got home from work that I took nap. I'm going to get to the gym or at least go for a walk this weekend.
