    I only had two pairs of jeans that fit me and sometimes had to wear dress slacks.
    Soon I'll be back into a lot of my clothes...and I will keep going!

    PamH, congrats on that six day old baby, grandma! She's a cutie

    I am finding myself so determined. Motivated by health issues that just were not acceptable!
    We've got a whole new month ladies. I know we can do it
    Good for you Mousie,
    Steady wins the race. It also inspires the rest of us to hang in there.

    Cindy,
    I'm in for March also.

    Mousie try going to livestrong.com There is a lot of info there, and you can join for free, then I go to a part called my plate, and places to put in my calories, weight etc. and even a place to click every time I drink a glass of water. I just find it helpful.

    Here is is past midnight, I need to sleep. I'm quilting a class tomorrow call "Quilt as Desired". I'll be helping people to determine what is desired for their quilt. I'll miss transplanting cedar trees and quilt bee at Judi's. I do get jazzed when teaching. Today, we located and dug holes for transplanting. And DH & I planted a Cherry tree I'd bought about 2 wks ago. Finally my arm feels good gardening.

    Sounds like the group is really forming for the March 'lose-a-thon'. I stayed the same for the month, ups and downs throughout the month, but at the end, it was the same. For me, I think it was a jar of dry roasted peanuts. Can't eat just one - should never have bought them in the first place, but were for a card game - and forgot to put them out, so the whole jar was calling to me. March is my birth month, so I need to really pay attention as my birthday present to myself!

    Well I have jumped on the train for mystery #5, just finished picking my fabrics from my stash. I am also going to be making another one of the 4th mystery. I have a few friends who saw it and liked it and want one also. I will get them done as soon as I can.

    I did get the top done of one of the t-shirt quilts I have been working on. And started on the ones for the second person I said I would do this for. Here is the college one I have been working on.

    It is a long queen size, I still have to measure it, and they want a microfiber for the backing. I went looking today and could not find any in the color she wants. I also figured I would check next weekend at the Dallas Quilt show.

    We have some who like to send in their FQ's for more than 1 month to save on postage. Those who have not signed up yet but sent in their FQ's I have sent them a PM to remind them to sign up. Just so everyone knows, once I receive your FQ, it does not stay in the orginal evelope so I don't know who sent which one in. I do my best to keep record of who I receive from, just not which one you sent. They then go in one bag for the winner.

    In April I will do another 3 months worth of themes so you can send them in if you like. I may try to get them decided by the middle of the month so you can start looking for them.

    Some ideas I am kicking around are:

    Florals
    pastels
    purples


    Please share some of your ideas of what you want. These are not set yet.

    Yes to March 2013 - been traveling again - can't wait to get home! I'm tired of being stuck and I think I need some routine to get back on track. haven't gained lost a little in Feb but not up to what I wanted to be doing. It's difficult to drink my water/liquid when driving down that ribbon of highway! Tues I should be home for some time (fingers crossed).
    Hope y'all have a good month.

    Cindy, your college quilt top is fantastic! I really love it!
    I would suggest batiks and black/white for future months.
    This is my first day to not see Allie. I am having withdrawal. LOL The other grandparents are here for the weekend so I don't feel I should go over there.
    I am also doing the new mystery quilt. My first priority right now has to be my Ireland quilt. What I really want to work on is a baby quilt for Allie.

    Skipping meals is not good,all it does is slow down metabolism. Body goes into starvation mode. Eat small meals if you cant do 3 meals with 2 snacks. Good luck everyone! Im inspired by some of you!! :-)

    I understand you wanting to send in 3 months at a time. I do this quarterly and will be making a decision for the next quarter the end of the month to be ready for April, May, and June.

    If more than 3 months at a time are sent in I tend to misplace them and that would not be fair to the winners. I have been doing good this year mailing out in a timely manner and not misplacing them in my apartment. LOL

    I will post as soon as I decide for the next quarter, you will still have to sign up each month on the new thread. Or it is a bonus to the winner each month.

    I don't think I posted my weight loss on here for Feb. I was down 6.8 lbs. My total from Jan.1st to Feb. 28 is 20.2 lbs and 21 1/4 inches. It's a slow process, but it's better than going in the other direction. haha

    With the theme being coral, I was wondering is our fat/skinny quarter suppose to be solid fabric or is prints allowed too as long as there is some coral in it? Just thought I would ask for clarity.
