Default Dec 2011 Weight Loss Adventure With A Prize! (the winner is mim)

On December 1 weigh yourself and write it down. Do NOT send it to me. On December 31 weigh yourself again and PM me with your loss. This is weight lost not % lost. I will announce the winner January 2.

You can not 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 the people who didn't lose as much weight will contact the BIGGEST loser/winner for their information and sent them the themed FQ.

December is the time of holidays and winter cold. This month's theme is WHITE, or GREEN, or BROWN in anticipation of the snow and pine trees. As always if you can not send the theme fabric please send what you have. If you don't have an FQ, send a linear 1/4 yard. If you have signed up to be in the competition, please send the winner her/his fabric. 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 December 3 at 9 a.m. CST. 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 DECEMBER 3. 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."

Ah, I guess I am the first to jump in for December. I am not sure what November's outcome will be, but I know having this thread as a focus will help me through December. I do have my November skinny quarter ready for November's achiever. Today I am working on the most awesome table topper. It will keep me occupied all day. It is so fun, I may just have to post the picture when I finish.

I'm in. I don't expect to win as I'm having trouble maintaining a previous weight loss and only want to lose what I've gained, but I definitely want to do that and encourage others to stay healthy at this difficult time of year for that!

Cookies are my trigger food and they abound (and apparently breed just like coat hangers) everywhere in December ... just saying - LOL. I have my FQ set aside to remind me of my goal.

Sign me up again. Maybe one of these months I will loose enough to count. I guess being down a little is better than being up a little. Love you ladies!!

I'm in. December is such an interesting month. I usually maintain, then gain weight after the big day. I must like leftovers. This December I will work hard on getting off the five pounds from Thanksgiving.
