    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!!

    I'm in. Maybe I'll actually participate this month...
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    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.

    I've signed up again. Guess you're stuck with me for your Taboo Tuesday hints. And, if you have anything you'd like me to post on Tuesdays, give me a PM with it. I know there are other ideas out there that I haven't thought of. Healthy eating everyone.

    I am down a good amount for January:-) Not enough to win, but down is down:-). My school had a 2 hour delay today due to snow and ice. So I have a little time to relax before work. Healthy eating to everyone. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Drink your water. That is something I need to work on. I have a hard time getting my water in during the day. Due to the kids I work with and the set up of the classroom if I want a drink I need to leave my kid I am working with, and my drink is behind a gate and on top of a cabinet. Some days I go until lunch without drinking. I know I need to work on this.

    This is my first time doing this. I joined a weight loss program Jan 1st. I have changed my eating habits, and am drinking lots and lots of water. 96 oz daily. I thought I would drown the first few days. haha As of Jan. 31st I am down 12 lbs. and have lost 14 inches. I get measured once a month too. I detoxed from sugar the first week and had a terrible headache. I finally got over it, and I'm doing okay now. I'm looking forward to all the input here on this board. We can do this!

    If i can be nosey, what weight loss program did you join? That is great to lose 12lbs and 14 inches in one month. I know I have been told to drink 50% of my weight in water to lose weight. IF I stick to that, I have been succussful in losing some weight. I know for my health sake I need to cut out as much sugar as possible. I just can't seem to drink my tea unsweetened. I am trying, I do use splenda now in my tea instead of regular sugar, but lately I have been hearing alot about the artificial sweetners being worse for you than regular sugar.

    I am trying to stay away from sodas, I have not had one at work for 2 weeks, only a sprite at home. As soon as they are gone I wont buy any more. For that I only have me to blame.

    I went to a new chiropractor today. I already knew I had a straight neck. He looked at my x-rays and said that I have the neck of a 113 year old. I have degenerative disease, osteoarthritis, bone spurs and a couple other things that I had never heard of and now can't remember. I just turned 55 two weeks ago. I knew my neck was in bad shape and hurts most of the time but geeze.

    I'm in for the month of February. I drank my 16 oz water had a healthy breakfast and I'm ignoring the fresh baked carmel rolls that the residents and staff had for breakfast. Victory dance. I'm heading outside to sew and organize in the loft above the garage My DH hung some bright lights above my long arm table, so I can se I can see!!!

    I was planning on re-joining Weight Watchers this morning. It is snowing and the road are really bad so I am staying home. I guess I will hide in my sewing room all day and try to figure out the 2 quilts that are giving me trouble. I am making a baby quilt for my new grandson.(due April 23) They have asked for something Charley Harper looking. So I decided to copy his zoo babies poster. I made a background out of the Ricky Timms convergence pattern and I like it. I made my paper templates last night and have them all laid out and I think it looks too cluttered. So now I need to rethink my design. GRRRRR! Also instead of going to Weight Watchers I made Chocolate chip cookies. I guess that is another GRRRR They are calling my name right now.
