Default March 2014 Weight Loss Adventure with Prize!!

On March 1st, weigh yourself and write it down. DO NOT send it to me. On March 31st, weigh yourself again and PM your loss. This is weight lost not precentage lost. I will announce the winner on April 3rd.

The prize is a themed FQ from each member. Once a winner is declared, I will contact the winner and FQ's will be mailed by the 6th.

Private message (PM) me for the mailing address. All FQ's should be mailed by the 15th of the month. You need to check in on the thread at least once a week to be eligible for the winning "skinny quarters aka FQ's" and to be declared the "biggest loser" for the month.

You cannot win 2 months in a row.

Chit Chat is allowed, as wells as WAYWO (what are you working on). Please stay postitive and uplifting as possible to keeps us all on track. Share tips, recipes, encouraging words and {{{HUGS}}}

March we are hoping for the snow and frozen weather to go away and to see the spring flowers explode with lots of color. So lets see how we can play with some Batiks FQ's. Please send quality fabric that you would want to receive in return. As always if you don't have the theme, send what you have. If you don't have a FQ, then send a linear 1/4 yard. If you have signed up to be in the running for the prize, please send your FQ to the hostess by the 15th of the month. As the winner has worked hard for her prize.

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

Sign up deadline to be apart of the PRIZE adventure is March 4th at 9 pm cst. You are encourage to contribute to the thread even if you are not in for the prize.

To let me know you are participating just post on the thread and then send a PM for the mailing address.

Remember if you sent your FQ's in advance, you still need to sign up on the new thread.

I am in again. Since I did not make my whole 10 pounds for February, will have to make it at least 13 pounds for March. that means a whole lot of discipline, getting over this pneumonia things so can exercise dog, and doing some buns of steel tapes to get that area under control again. Does the doctors scales purposely add 10 pounds to your body?

Count me in. This has not been a good winter for weight control. March is a perfect time for me to get my act together as it's b'day month. I'll record my weight on my calender in the morning.

I'm in again. Hopefully I will get my act together and get with it.
Our cold weather makes me want to hibernate and eat. We are supposed to get freezing rain, sleet, and snow again on Sunday! Enough already! This is the south where we only get this stuff every now and then, not all winter long. haha I finish my antibiotics this weekend and hopefully my food will start tasting right and the salty chips won't taste good any more. Congratulations to all who have lost this month. I'm very proud of you and am encouraged by your posts. Have a great weekend everyone.
Debbie

Be careful! A nutritionist I know advises to not lose more than 2 pounds a week.
