Default July 2012 Weight loss adventure with a prize!!!

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

PM me for address. FQs 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 FQs received to the winner by the 5th of the month. I will contact the winner and announce the winner with the number of FQs they will receive.
July is the heat of summer so think of cool. This month's theme is shades of blue. Please send quality what you would want to receive. As always if you cannot send the theme fabric please send what you have. If you don't have a FQ, send a linear 1/4 yard. If you have signed up to be in the competition, please send the FQ to hostess by the 10th of the month. 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 the 3rd of each month at 9 p.m. CST, with your FQ postmarked 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.


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."

Okay, here 'tis July. My weight is down from June, so goal is to keep it that way. I PM'd for June earlier this morning and will follow this posting with PM for July. Then I will be sure to log in weekly (or more) and keep up with the group that way. I am working on some handwork right now. At the first of each year, I start looking for different challenges that are posted from different groups (Hoffman Challenge, NQA challenge, etc) and see how many I'd like to try. This year it was 3. I finished 2 of them - didn't enter them because of difficulties with them that I knew would knock them out of any judging, but they were finished. I'm working on challenge #3 and hope to have it finished soon. I'll try to post pictures soon.

Sign me up for July.
When you send your fq to Cindy include a postage stamp that she can use for mailing out to the winner.

Cindy, I'm in again for July. I was a gainer for June - up 1.2 lb. Up and down all month but that's part of life. Now I'll see what July has in store besides some hot weather.

Take care everyone - be good to you.
