    I will keep looking for Corals and wait to hear about the colours for April, May June.
    I figured yours might be abit longer. Thanks for letting me know it is on its way. I will let you know when it does arrive. I will be posting the colors for April, May and June in March. If I give too many months , they could get lost in my messy apartment right now. It looks like a tornado has gone through. I am such a clutter bug and lazy when it comes to cleaning up......LOL

    as far as the coral color...........think about what you see in the colors of a sunset. that might help you.

    Good morning ladies..... I have sent out some PM this morning as a follow up to some of you who I havent heard from or seen a post since some said they wanted to join. I am encouraged by all who have wanted to join us.

    Keep up your hard work. If you need some encouragement we are here to help you any way we can.

    I am off to finish my mystery train scrappy quilt top. I am almost finished with the 3rd and final clue. Will post a picture when I get it finished.

    Fun Fact I recently read Drink 16oz water right away in the am and you will consume 20-25% less. I'm down some , working on not eating through the emotional ups and downs of life. Why do U thinks its going to help.... It never does. I'm working on a quilt for my daughters graduation Browns,beiges and a little burgundy. A stretch for me I'm a pink/pastel florals type quilter, but it's looking good and she will Love It.

    Jodi I don't know about the water making you consume that much less. It does help to make you feel full and it also helps to flush the toxins out of your body.
    Cindy I am working on the Mystery train too. I am ready to start on putting together step 3. I can't find my 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch strips. I might just recut them.

    I am finishing up my clue 3, now putting the rows together. I hope to have a picture soon even if I haven't sewn these to the rest.

    Jodi, like meanmom I know it helps you feel fuller at meal time, and does flush your body. I add lemon to my water to help me out. cant drink tap water so I have to buy some bottled water. i found a 3 liter for $1 that I can keep at my desk and I dont have to have it cold. can drink it at room temp. it is the easiest for me to do to make sure i get my water, especially since i am on the phone for 8 hours a day. need plenty to keep my throat moist.

    Hope everyone is doing good on their weight loss. I am doing much better then I expected to be doing. I have had 2 doctors appointments already this month and it has given me lots of incentive because I am proud of the progress I have made. It is still hard work.
    Twice this week we have gone to Walmart to push around the heavy grocery cart plus one day pushing the grocery cart full of groceries. By the time grocery day was over, I thought I was going to die I was having so much pain in my feet and legs from the neuropothy. ) I hope that everyone has a great week. Keep up the good work.
    There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING...

    Here is my Mini train Scrappy Nine Patch quilt. Before I added the borders it measured 56 x 72. I added 5 inch borders so now it is 66 x 82. Fits my queen size bed. Here are several pictures of it. And mom is trying to claim it for her. It will be fore my bed not hers, she has a king size bed. I had so much fun with this quilt. I will probably make it again.

    Wow, Lisa! That's great!
    I thought I was doing good at 4.2. I have challenges coming up with a 3 day quilting retreat starting tomorrow, then my birthday, then 8 days in Florida.

    Cindy I love how your quilt came out. I had to re-cut my 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 blocks. I have no idea where they could have disappeared to. I have 2 sides of the borders on. I will probably finish it tonight.
    Keep up the good work everyone. It sounds like there will be some good #'s this month. Cindy down is down. At least you are headed in the right direction. So far I am doing well. I need to get more exercise. They are going to start a bootcamp class at work next month i will have to try it out. They are good with catering to all levels of fitness. With my bad knee I just modify the exercises to what I can do.

    thanks meanmom. I had fun with this quilt. I am going to make another with more manly colors, for my dad. gonna stay away from the florals for him. A friend who has had cancer, wants one too.

    and yes down is down. I am gonna start getting more exercise myself. My work hours are gonna be changing a little. one week I will work 9-6 and the next week it will be 10- 7. So i am going to start going to the gym and work it. Has been too cold here lately to workout outside. Plus the safety factor.

    time to get back to work.

    Cindy -- I was finally able to get to the post office & mailed off 3 fat quarters for the 1st 3 mos. I'm sorry for mailing so late. I've been taking my mother to her Dr. appts. You should have them by Thurs. Sadly I've only lost 1.5#'s but it's a start & there's more month left. I'm moving!!!! yeh!

    Thanks for letting me know, I will let you know when they arrive. I understand about taking mom to the doctors, I do that too, just not as much as before I started my new job. I use to work 3 days a week and now it is 5 days a week

    Any weight down is better than adding them

    I've been watching what I eat, but perhaps that's the problem I'm still eating. Taboo Tuesday this time is my worst nightmare - PORTION CONTROL. I like veggies, so I may load my plate with them, but then, I have an equally large amount of whatever else I've prepared. SO, this week is portion control. I WILL CUTE MY PORTIONS DOWN. Portion control - I'll have to pretend I'm fixing a plate for a youngster (or something like that) and make it smaller. I've been losing, but not as much as I'd like, but then, if my portions are larger, it's no wonder.

    Vanogay, spend a week or so tracking your food and exercise on myfitnesspal or a similar site. It is an eyeopener. I know I lose it on breakfast - it's hard to cook a small amount of oatmeal and as long as it's cooked, I may as well eat it. I decided last night to have eggs today today for that reason - hmmm, great minds think alike. I'm thinking portion control, too. I spent the first 38 of my life having to overeat to keep my weight because I had an overactive thyroid and it seems that was imprinted on my brain for too long. I eat most my meals on a Fiesta ware salad plate which is a nice size or in a shallow soup bowl. I was in two restaurants Sunday that have definitely cut down their portion sizes and it was enough.

    I wish us 'enough' this week. Enough food, enough exercise, enough time decluttering (for me), enough time quilting, enough time with family, enough sleep, enough downtime, etc, etc, etc.

    I AM losing weight and getting healthier.

    My 3months of "skinnies" went out in the mail Monday morning. Almost done with the blocks for my dtrs graduation quilt. Has anyone else read the book " Made To Crave" by Lysa Teurkust. The 1st chapter she talks about finding our want to we have the how to down pat. So I'm working on my want to. We are more than a number on the scale
