    This is a continuation of the weight loss thread.

    I put the date first so it would be easier to "search".

    On July 1 weigh yourself and write it down. Do NOT send it to me. On July 31 weigh yourself again and PM Purplemen or me with your loss. We'll let you know. This is weight lost, not % lost. I will announce the winner August 1.

    You cannot win 2 months in a row.

    Chit chat is allowed, as well as WAYWO, (what are we working on). Our lives impact our weight, so it's okay to share. 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 the people who didn't lose as much weight will contact the BIGGEST loser/winner for their information and sent them the themed FQ.

    July is for sitting back and enjoying our flower gardens and the sunshine. This month's theme is garden florals. As always if you can not send the theme fabric please send what you have. If you don't have an FQ, send a linear 1/4 yard.

    Eat healthy, exercise, try and lose weight but most of all have fun!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sign up deadline to be included in the Prize Venture is July 3 at noon EST. 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 JUly 3. THERE IS NO NEED TO PM FOR PARTICIPATION, JUST YOUR ENDING WEIGHT LOSS FOR THE MONTH.

    Purplemen is 'under the weather', so I am a temporary substitute. Please feel free to join us if this subject is of interest to you.

    I am also here, but I do not want to participate in the FQ challenge. Just want to hang with my friends.

    I'm in! Just read the newspaper regarding Diabetes and losing 10 to 20 percent of your weight. It should help.

    216 by my scale.

    Welcome, M.E.H. Welcome back, jeriann.

    I'm in, too. I don't mind sending out FQs if it keeps me on track. It's not that I wouldn't like to win, but at the end of losing weight, it's slower going and I can never top the loses we see. I'm glad this month's winners are in the 2 pound a week range. More than that after the initial week isn't always healthy. We need to be healthy first and slim second. Personally, I vote for slim AND healthy.

    I AM losing weight. Judy

    I would like to participate in this adventure. I have already lost some but there is plenty more to go.

    A little incentive makes it fun!!

    I'll join in again. It seems a tad bit easier to not eat that second piece of cake when there is the possibility of fabric.

    This is my second month of getting back into shape (I keep telling my doctor that round is a shape and he shouldn't be so hard on me.)

    My weight loss will slow down now. The first month it's easy to lose weight because you change your lifestyle and my body sort of goes into shock. Then the second month, my body says, "oh, no you don't. I'm keeping everything you stuck on me."

    I am in. The motivation of fabric is a good incentive. I can never have too much fabric.
