Default February 2013 Weight Loss Adventure with a Prize

On February 1, weigh yourself and write it down. Do NOT send it to me. On February 28, weigh yourself again and PM me your loss. This is weight lost not precentage lost. I will announce the winner March 3.

Private message me for 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 and be be declared "biggest loser" for the month.

You cannot win 2 months in a row.

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

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.

As we begin February, some of us are ready to see more blue and green in the sky and ground. The color theme for this month will be Turquoise or shades of blues and greens. Please send quality fabric that you want to receive. 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 part of the Prize Adventure is February 4 at 9 pm CST. You are encouraged 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.

Hi all! I did really good last month for me and I am happy with my 9 lbs lost. I will keep doing what I am doing and hope for another loss next month. If i keep it up i have the potential to lose around 100 lbs this year wihich is my goal. Never would i have ever thought i would have to lose that much weight. But here i am and i will continue to work at it this year. I will not be fat again this summer.

In for the long haul. It's just what I need. I will quote Red Green "We're in this together-- keep your stick on the ice"
