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.

    Here I am again. Thank you Ms. Pat for being our hostess on this adventure.

    I don't think my weight has changed. I love to walk - my favorite stress reliever. Now that has to change. How I wish I had an elliptical. LOVE that machine.

    Good luck to everyone.

    Gonna try again. Heading out on a little vacation the end of April and that is my goal date, but February is the loss month. Would like to be a little thinner than my cousin - ha ha! At 76, how much can I lose???????? I will start in again on my indoor walking and I love salads . So I will be sending in my fat quarters soon and will pm my address!!! Good luck to all of you, but better luck to me?????? I have three months to lose about 30 lbs and I just got through watching Biggest Loser. I am so glad that guy won! I was rooting for him most of the show. That show really gives a person impetus, but I don't do anything super-strenuous! Just walk! Good luck!!!! Edie

    Pete it is still early in the month. Just jump back on track, you have plenty of time, although I think you will have to fight a bunch of us for the purple. It always seems to be a really popular color. My DH brought home ice cream and peanut butter filled pretzels. I had some of both. (grrrr!) Both are major weaknesses of mine. Luckily my DH and DS finished off the ice cream.
    I was transferred to a different school 2 weeks ago. Not too happy about it, but I didn't have any choice. This school is 3 floors, I have been trying to walk the stairs more. I go back to the knee dr in early March, I figure it will either feel a lot better by then or it will be killing me. I told the dr I would let him replace it when it started to interfere with what I want to do. It is sure getting there. The stairs will either fix it or kill it. I''m getting tired of messing with it.

    I'd like to join this. I just started a new healthy eating plan. And lost a bit of weight right off the bat. (I still have plenty to go.) I am hoping to continue and stay on track. I look forward to cheering you on as well. Have also combined a bit of exercise also. Just walking. But, the dogs so look forward to it everyday. Now, Off the pm the Hostess.

    Good luck to everyone this month. As I mentioned in an earlier message, I didn't lose in Jan. nor did I gain. Hoping this month is better for me. Got a couple of cortisone shots in my hip area (both sides) and now walking is not painful, but with the ice and snow it's not easy either. Hope no one gets too much candy on Valentines Day - at least flowers are inedible!!

    **The winner for January is Megan! Congratulations! She lost 6.4 pounds. It was a close race this month with some good losses. Keep up the good work everyone.
    Keep up the fight for the purple FQ everyone. It is a short month but we can do it.

    Good for you Megan. I didn't lose anything but I also didn't gain so I'm happy with that but I really need to knuckle down and get back on the right path.

    Meanmom, I will be sending out my FQ's in just a little bit. I will have a tracking number on them. I had planned to get them out yesterday, but, it poured down rain all day. So was not able to get to the quilt store. Most of my fabric is from JoAnn's. So, had to go to the Quilt store for the FQ's. They are pretty. But, to tell the truth, I'm hankering for the orange FQ's. I want to make a baby quilt in Grays and Oranges. I saw one on Pinterest that I love. And, grandbaby #2 will be here sometime in June. (Not sure if it is a boy or girl yet.) We may know by the end of the month and may not. Of course, that does not mean I am going off my diet plan. I want, NEED to loose a lot of weight. I can't stand not be able to keep up with those grandbabies. I really want to enjoy them.

    My fat jeans fit almost without sucking it in. lol I can't wait to toss them completely.

    I started the Beyond Diet with Isabel De Los Rios. (online) I lost 15 lbs in the first 14 days (Jan.). Now, that will taper off as the eating plan changes to suit my body type. I couldn't believe how much you eat on it. I always knew, that I was not eating enough of the right things and way too many indulgences. So, I hope to do better this time. As you can actually eat on this plan. Most of the plans I've tried before cut calories so much that as soon as I went off or changed the plan, I gained it all back and then some. This diet is actually a lot like the Atkins diet, but not exactly. And, I upped my exercise (which was none.). I have been walking my 3 dogs in my neighborhood (separately) everyday to get some steps in. Although, I have started slowly, I am building to 10,000 steps a day. I have really bad knee problems. So, I am starting off slow and trying to build strength and stamina.

    Sorry guys, I am in the South. Even the cold days aren't so bad when the sun shines.

    I've been going at it hard and heavy as they say...good results so far. Tonight is bridge group and I have been asked to bring my "famous" rum cake. OMG, it smells so good! Good thing there aren't any calories in smells!
