Default February weight loss 2016

February Weight Loss Challenge 2016
February Weight Loss Adventure with Prize!!
On February 1st, weigh yourself and write it down. DO NOT send it to me. On February 28th, weigh yourself again and PM me your loss. This is weight lost not percentage lost. I will announce the winner on March 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}}}
February is usually a dreary month so we need to find innovative ways to exercise. Maybe try a new class?So I thought a good FQ theme for February would be Valentines day theme, hearts, pink red something like that. This would make a beautiful quilt for getting ready for spring. So I think it is the month we should try to renew our commitment to weight loss and our health We need to get ready for the renewed commitment to our health. 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 February 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 February is Valentines Day.

I am down 5 pounds for January. Not as good as it should have been but down is always good. It would help if I would quit making homemade bread. I went to spinning class tonight, I almost talked myself out of going. Tough class tonight. We did an 8 minute hill, and a 4 minute speed burst. I rode 17 miles in 50 minutes. I do feel so much better since it went. I might try a water aerobics class tomorrow. I have gone before but it has been years.
My DH finished the homemade bread. I had one slice today. I don't even want to think about how much I had yesterday.I made cinnamon raisin bread. DH ate 1/2 of a loaf while I was gone. Less for me, good.

Hello Ladies, count me in! meanmom has my skinnie!

Congrats on a 5# loss Pat! I was down 5# mid-month, but only ended up with a 3# loss. Nothing what I had hoped for.

meanmom, I will keep your family in my prayers. What a hard situation.

About your kindergartner - sad that this childs mother does not see the gift of knowing of a serious problem at such a young age. Several in my circle did not learn of bipolar or depression until their teen years. At least there is time to get a good treatment plan, but with the mom in denial, she is condemning that child in ways she can't see yet. Obviously, the mom has treatment needs of her own.
