Default Jan 2012 Weight Loss Adventure With A Prize! - the winners were Jholm and Purplemem

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

PM me for address. FQ’s need to be received no later than the 10th of month.

You cannot 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, I will mail all the FQ’s received to the winner by the 3rd of the month. I will contact the winner and announce the winner with the number of FQ’s they will receive.

January is the time winter cold. This month's theme is WHITE, or RED in anticipation of the snow and valentines. As always if you cannot 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 January 3 at 9 a.m. CST, with your FQ received by the 10th of month. 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."

I'm in and have remembered to start the list. Red and white is an easy one for me and I've discovered the big box store I frequent has a post office, so this will work out well.

I'm in. Am I supposed to send any money with the fat quarter to cover postage? I need to get rid of the weight I have gained since Thanksgiving.

I am in this month. I had been in before awhile back before MJ took over the thread duties & I always check in & read what everyone is doing, so it is time to get serious & join in! My FQ may be a few days late as I am leaving on a cruise & probably won't get to the PO before the 9th.

I know I'll forget and this way I can check back at the end of the month
168.6 4'11 3/4" BMI 33.02
BMI 20-25 normal, 25-29.9 overweight, greater than 30 obese
weight (lbs) x 705 = divided by height in inches = divided by height in inches again = BMI
Sorry I just got a book on "Diabetes for Dummies" lol so I figured my BMI and my husbands
