    This is a continuation of the weight loss thread.

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

    On June 1 weigh yourself and write it down. Do NOT send it to me. On June 30 weigh yourself again and PM me with your loss. This is weight lost not % lost. I will announce the winner July 1.

    You can not 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 the people who didn't lose as much weight will contact the BIGGEST loser/winner for their information and sent them the themed FQ.

    June is for weddings and brides. This month's theme is WHITE ON WHITES OR CREAM OR NEUTRALS. 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 June 3 at 9 a.m. CST. 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 JUNE 3. THERE IS NO NEED TO PM FOR PARTICIPATION, JUST YOUR ENDING WEIGHT LOSS FOR THE MONTH.

    Could I also participate from Europe? I'm prepared to send my fat quarter overseas, but would everybody else be in case I actually won?

    Hmm, the winner will indeed be a double winner: enjoying the good feeling of having lost weight and having new fabric to work with.

    Yes, you can participate. If you win, I'll have everyone send the FQ to me and I'll put it all in one box to mail. Not as fun as getting one just about every day of the month, but satisfying none the less.

    Welcome aboard! Where are you in Europe?

    I'm in Switzerland and I'm happy to participate. Maybe that's just the additional incentive needed. Though, usually if I put myself under pressure regarding loosing weight, it backfires. But maybe it's the same as with everything else - if you fail, try again! :)

    My weight loss has been in inches and dribbles, but for 8 months I have not gained...and lost 40 lbs now.

    Today's thought:

    We do not change until the pain we feel in the present circumstance is greater than the fear of change in the future. How much do you have to hurt to be ready to change?

    One day at a time, one choice at a time.
    1200-1600 calories a day. 4 bottles of water each day.
    Strength from this group.
    One step after another.

    I'll up for joining again. Don't really care if I win, but I do need the extra encouragement to lose.

    This is really motivating. I have a sports weekend the last weekend of June and I was already trying to lose some weight until then, in order to be fitter. This extra motivation might just do the trick.

    Thank you for this idea.

    I'm actually not that fond of chocolate - so this temptation is luckily not that dangerous. But I'm generally very fond of eating, I quite like cooking and have a boyfriend who is a divine cook, so I don't need single temptations to get me into trouble. :)

    But I did it once, so I will do it again and this is the right time. I lost 44 pounds (hope I did the conversion correctly) a couple of years ago without going on a diet, simply by eating healthy and doing loads of sports. Unfortunately, I had some health problems which prevented me from continuing with my sports program and now the pounds have "mysteriously" reappeared. But I'm back on track now.

    I have been waiting patiently for June 1 and now I get to enjoy all the support and encouragement this group lovingly gives. I also need someone to be accountable to, because otherwise I procrastinate. So here goes, count me in! Oh, by the way, the fat quarters are icing on the cake.

    I have been wondering the same thing. I'd like to know as well on how to get the weight loss meter attached to my messages.

    As you can see, I figured it out.
