    June 2013 Weight Loss Adventure with a PRIZE!!!!!

    On June 1st weigh yourself and write it down. Do NOT send it to me. On June 30th weigh yourself again and PM me your total weight loss. This is weight lost not percentage. I will announce the winner on July 3rd.

    The Prize is a themed FQ from each member who signs up and sends it to the hostess. Once a winner is declared, I will contact the winner and the FQ's will be mailed by the 6th.

    PM me for the mailing address. FQ's must be received by the 15th of the month to be eliigible for the winning FQ's.

    I ask that you check in on the board by posting something, so we know you are still with us on a weekly basis.

    Chit chat is allowed as well as WAYWO (what are you working on). Please stay positive and uplifting as possible to keep us on track. Share tips, recipes, encouraging words and {{{HUGS}}}.

    As summer approaches, we need bright things to remind us of cheery days. This month themes is anything PURPLE. Please send quality fabric that you would want to receive in return. As always if you don't have the theme, send what you can. If you don't have a FQ, you can send a linear 1/4 yard. If you have signed up to be in the running for the prize, please mail your FQ to the hostess by the 15th of the month. As the winner (could be you) have worked hard for the prize pot of FQ's.

    Remember to make healthy choices, exercise, make wise choices and lose weight but most of all have fun!!!!

    I'm in for June.
    Boy, caring for a baby is so much more draining at 55 than it was at 23. My back gets so tired from carrying the car seat when we go places. I'll have to stop making any plans and just stay home on Allie days. LOL

    I'm in again. Was down in May but not much, 2.2 lbs. Hoping I can get in some more exercise. I know this really helps.

    Well, I'm in again for June. My weight loss isn't great, but it is loss - and I like that.

    Got on my scales this morning to start the month and I am so amped!! I am in the 160s for the first time in a very long time. The weight was coming down, coming down, but to see 168 register - WOW - that's a number to be excited about. According to the AMA and all those charts they put out, I should, for my height and age, weigh about 141. Don't know about getting there, but I'd love to see the 150s register on my scales - the LOW 150s. I'm getting there, come on, ladies, I have enough enthusiasm for all of us - let's do this! My terrific Tuesdays will be every day, not just Tuesday - drink that water, pass up that snack (tomorrow is church and they always have the donut holes for hospitality - none for me).

    I'm in for June. I was down a little but eating on the run with my dad has messed it up some. I decided to go to Hilton Head with my brother for a week so I am there now. SO many goodies. They eat a lot of bad things. We are going to water aerobics in a few minutes. We will probably spend the day laying by the pool and at the beach. The waitress comes from the bar all day offering food and drinks. We usually are bad and have a drink or 2 and order their food. So many yummy bad choices. LAst year I didn't gain any weight, we usually get in a bike ride and a beach walk most days too.

    I'm still here but life is still crappy. I have one nice leg and one elephant leg. It's so frustrating. Lately somedays when I get up its almost normal but by evening it's back to elephant size. At least it's not turning black any more. All this from a fall up the basement steps onto my knee. Ugh. Weight loss still going in the right direction slightly down. This board is helping. Thanks.

    Hang in there, Ladies! It sounds like so many of us are dealing with life issues right now.

    Kathleen, I am thrilled for you!!! Seeing that new number will help keep you on track

    Pam, those babies really are heavier now that we're in our 50s but oh the joy of having them helps ease that pain (well, that and Motrin, lol!)

    Have a great relaxing time in Hilton Head. We started the day with a water aerobics class. Then headed to our cabana at the beach. The weather is great. About 83 with a gentle breeze. I spent a lot of my day sitting in a lounge chair reading a book with a tasty drink in my other hand. We got in the pool a few times and in the ocean. The waves were a little high today so we didin't spend a lot of time in the ocean. My DD and I went for about a 3 mile walk down the beach. Now we are cooking shish-ka bobs on the grill. Man this is the life. I need to find me someone to give me the money to continue like this.
    One of the golf cart shuttle drivers is a great cook. THe aerobics teacher was telling us about his awesome cheesecakes. He doesn't give out his recipes but he did tell me how he makes it. A maple bacon cheesecake topped with peaches and several other unique ones. Apparently a couple of local restaurants sell them. I think we are going to head to one tomorrow. Hope I don't gain too much weight.

    Pat, enjoy your vacation; they come so few & far between. Relaxing at the beach sounds pretty good to me right now.

    Okay I'm in again. I really need to up my game, I'd like to lose some serious belly before the family reunion at the end of July. The last couple of weeks in May I quit my walking and so I ended up at a stalemate for the month. So this month I'm getting back on my feet. I think I will try to walk before work instead of waiting until evening.

    meanmom Hilton Head sounds wonderful! A few splurges on vacation are good for you. You will come home more rested and motivated.

    Lisa what has the doctor said about the swelling in your leg? My left foot, it's the one with the toe I keep breaking, swells everytime I stand too long or if it gets really hot. I keep forgetting to ask the doctor when I am in for something else, and it isn't bothering me enough to go in just for that.

    Kathleen congrats on making the 160's, isn't it wonderful to see the numbers change! I haven't seen the 160's in years, maybe this will be my year.

    Pam I am looking forward to having babies to lug around again, but not quite yet since DS is still in college and not working even. I think it would be easier to plop the little one on your hip instead of the car seat, remember when it seemed like it was a permanent fixture?

    I looked up info on the cinnamon and honey for weight loss. All the sites I read stressed that it had to be raw honey, not the processed stuff from the grocery. Guess I'll start checking out the farm markets this week. Here's a link to an article on livestrong - http://www.livestrong.com/article/10...y-lose-weight/

    I'm "sort of" in for June. You have my fat quarter already. I will be traveling for a month from the 17th of June till the 17th of July, home for two days then gone for 5 more. I don't own a lap top. So I may not be able to report in, I won't be near a scale either.........

    Oh well, hope everyone does great!


    My newest Grandson, Caleb Austin, was born May 29th. I am now Grandma to 4 precious babies. I am so blessed!!!!

    Good morning lovely ladies! I am new to this Quilt forum so I'm not quite sure how everything works, however, I am interested in joining this weight loss challenge. I'm guessing PM means private message and I need to do that to get the address to mail the FQ (which I figured out after a while meant fat quarter) ha ha. I'm a slow learner, lol. Really need to lose more than a few pounds and hope having some buddies and a challenge will be the remedy. Working on a "Quilt Value" quilt for my 4yo DGS and really need to get busy with that so I can present it to him in July when he comes to visit. I only have about 200-300 HST so far (which is the easy part; it will be the laying it out that will be the challenge). I would probably categorize my experience in quilting somewhere between beginner and intermediate, so always looking for the wisdom from all levels. Ok off to the gym (even though it's a rainy stay in the house and quilt day). Hope everyone has a beautiful and productive day !

    Newdoda, welcome to the group. Yep, you need to get that FQ (also called a skinny quarter in our group) off to Cindy. Keep posting through the month, letting us know of your progress. Post pictures of your quilts as well, it's fun to see what everyone else is working on. Keep working on the loss and you could win all the beautiful fabrics that are sent in each month! Welcome again..

    My June FQ went postal today. I was able to workout in the pool today as well. My walking group switched from walking in the heat to walking in the pool. I had a nice 1 1/2 hour workout and didn't melt after we were finished.

    Very nice, I do wish I had a pool close enough for me to walk in or do the water aerobics.

    I will be melting here in Texas soon enough

    Newdoda welcome to the group. What you are working on sounds great. I am another one that wish there was a pool here for me to exercise in. It would be easier on my joints too.

    Making better choices: we have ice cream in the house and I've barely touched it!! The other night I decided I wanted some and literally only took one small scoop. And that was enough, amazing. I used to overflow my bowl with it. The best part is I really don't even think about it or sit around wanting it. Haven't excercised in a while, so that is my goal for this week. (I'm in for June and sent my FQ in along with the May FQ.)

    Wow, I just found this thread. This sounds like fun. I need to loose approximately 28 pounds to be at my goal ideal weight for me. I am a couple of days late, but I know what my scale said on the first, because it said the same thing at me today. DH was cooking again and then had two birthdays so made homemade ____________. Gave half of them away, yes two desserts. This way there is less temptation in the house. I will be glad to send in a FQ. I have to dig one out or make one.

    Welcome to the new comers. I am happy to have each and everyone of you here. Please feel free to share anything that you desire. What you are working on currently, struggles and encouraging.

    Tomorrow we will have a post of Taboo Tuesday or Terrific Tuesday......something to avoid or to try to add to your routine.

    Remember you are in control of what you decide to put in your mouth. Eat smart, drink plenty of water and try to exercise. (my downfall).
