    Hello Ladies!!!! I've been out of the loop. Lots going on with me lately, which doesn't equate to weight loss unfortunately. I'm voting for maybe Batiks, Greens, Patriotic. Those are good colors for the next 3 months.

    Love the t-shirt Quilt Cindy!!!! I need to get one made. I have all the shirts in a bag and I know my husband would love it.

    Well, hoping for warmer weather so I can get out and start walking. Wishing everyone good luck on weight loss this month!!!!
    The trouble with Trouble is.....It usually starts out like fun!!

    Hello Everyone,
    February was alright for me, I stayed the same. Here's to hoping that March is better.

    Hi everyone! My first week didn't go well with lots going on, but today I have done well.
    Here is to more progress for all of us. I ate some wonderful Brussels sprouts in a low cal sauce. I also had more water than usual.
    I cut out some more quilt blocks to work on at night when watching tv for my Around the World Quilt.

    I will be traveling both Monday and Tuesday of this coming week, so decided to post early.
    Terrific Tuesday (something to mull over) Sugar substitutes: since you can't digest them, low calorie sugar alcohols - including mannitol, sorbitol and xylitol - can cause stomach distress like bloating and gas, which are major energy drainers. Processed foods: that chocolate chip muffin or bag of chips will give you an express delivery jolt, but processed foods run through your system quickly, which means your energy spikes, then slumps fast. Less is more: Eat whole foods as often as possible (fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, legumes, whole grains) and opt for the least processed version of packaged foods, which have the shortest ingredients list. Foods that are closest to their natural state give you a much steadier longer-lasting stream of energy.

    I weighed in yesterday and was down 0.2. I was not surprised by the low number at all. I was pretty good last week but we did a buffet on Friday night. I stayed within my weekly weight watcher points. We ate a ton of crab legs which are really salty so I was holding water. I don't dip mine in melted butter so they were really low points. The scale should be really kind next week when all of the water weight is gone.
    I exercise quite a bit last week too. I did the elliptical 3 days, a bootcamp class and walked 2 1/2 miles after work on Friday. We walked pretty fast a pace faster than I would have chosen. Since I am not a walker usually I was surprised that I was sore Saturday. My hips and lower back were sore yesterday. They are fine today. I guess the walking uses different muscles than the elliptical.

    Teddybear lady I rec'd your fq this week.

    No Painaics I haven't decided what the next 3 months will be. Have been getting lots of ideas.

    I went to the Dallas quilt show yesterday, had a great time looking at all the quilts and vendors. I did buy some batiks and some blue peacock fabric and a peacock panel. There was more that I wanted to buy but I didn't need it, I am trying to only buy what is needed not just what is wanted.

    And on this one I got lucky, it has some information on the selvage. Haruyo Morita for Elizabeth's Studio patt #3406

    Hope this helps you meanmom.

    I love both of them, not sure what i am going to do with them. I have the peacock theme in my bedroom.

    I saw a peacock panel at a quilt show Friday but I didn't look close enough to see who made it.

    I know with the sugar subsitutes, I do have lots of the problems with excess bloating and gas.

    I have been eating more food close to the natural state, then processed foods. I do feel better when I dont eat alot of processed food.

    Have a fun trip.

    Cindy thanks for the info on the fabrics. I found the peacock fabric online but I haven't found the panels yet. I will continue to search. They are really pretty.
    I have been trying to cut down on artificial sweeteners. i just feel like they are too unnatural to be good for me. I am also trying to cook and eat things closer to their natural state. I feel so much better when I eat right.
    Healthy eating to all.

    Now that's interesting!!! I find as I get older that is a problem but maybe it's just the SS I use. Thanks for the info!

    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.


    This looks great!!!! Getting things to work out when the sizes are so different is always a challenge. Well done!!!

    When I was at the dallas quilt show on saturday, I ran into the teacher who taught me how to do t-shirt quilts. Told her that the person I made it for wanted microfiber on the back and she had a great suggestion. to go get a microfiber blanket to use as the backing but highly recommend that it be quilted on a long arm not a home machine. i will do than and possible pay her to do it for me.

    Slow is better, I have seen that when you drop slow you tend to keep it off more.

    Cindy, I have only made one T Shirt quilt & I tied it because I was afraid of running over the old shirts with all of the stitches. You can tell that I am a hand quilter & am leary of machine quilting, lol. I NEED to get over that fear!!!

    the lady that taught my class, said the best thing to do is to just do stippling on the sashing. and not over the shirts.

    Cindy I did FMQ over the designs on my t-shirt quilts. It worked fine on most of them. The ones with a really heavy design I put tissue paper over them and it worked well. The person who does my longarming for me told me to do this. I peeled the tissue paper off and the little pieces that didn't want to peel off came out when i washed it.
    I did my bootcamp class today. I think I will be sore tomorrow. They really worked us hard today. Not a lot of aerobics today but a lot of squats and abdomen work. I think my abs will be pretty bad tomorrow. I don't really have any ab muscle so I really need it.
    Everyone keep up the good work.

    I haven't been doing good, and I am an emotional eater. Been visiting my dad at the nursing home, and Sunday as I was leaving I had a lot on my mind, and went over a concrete thing. Had to call a tow truck to raise my car in the air and get it back out. It's ok though. Then found out yesterday one of my sisters is in the hospital with double
    pneumonia, and tomorrow makes one year since my mom died.
    This may not be a good month for my weight.

    I did get to check out some fabric today though, and that was nice. Cut out some fabric to prepare for working on a table topper for a table in front of one of my windows.

    Happy Sewing and Happy Health too.

    I'm home from traveling for a day or two and then back to Atlanta before coming home again for good. Good to see family, but lots of running in between. Sounds like we all think alike about watching what we eat, but all of us are so different - emotional eaters, pickers, that sort. I seem to 'just eat'. I walk into the kitchen and see the nuts on the counter - one small serving is good, right? Well if one is good, two or three is better. I say I don't put the sodas and other sweet things in my diet, but I still eat more than my body needs of whatever I do put in my diet. I need to get my head around something and be more cautious of what I put in my mouth. Sometimes I know I shouldn't be doing this, but eat it anyway. It's not emotional eating and it's not binge eating, but don't have a name to put on it. Guess I'll call it Dumb eating!
