    I sent mine for April, May and June. I hope to lose better in May. I don't know what my body's problem has been lately. Guess I'm going to have to move around more. haha I'm still enjoying just looking at the fabric I won in March.

    Terrific Tuesday - I'd liks us all to adhere to the 7 Ps to help us with weight loss -- Proper Pre-Planning Prevents Pretty Poor Performance. Pre-plan meals and any eating 'binges' and performance (results) will show up in weight loss. Takes a bit of work there, but well worth the effort. I know Cindy talks about what she buys at the store and planning for meals, I do as well, but hubby and I eat out 2-3 times per week and it's hard to 'pre-plan' with meals out. I'm going to give it a try - how 'bout you?

    I'm in again. April was the first time I've lost weight in many years. My weight has been stable but I haven't been happy about it. I feel like I can make progress this time. And I did more than just touch my fabric last night. I cut the fabric for 10 placemates that will be used as table runners for DD wedding reception in June. And I have enough fabric left to make me a set.

    I am in again for May, and have already sent my fabric. Tomorrow I weigh, I think I have lost quite a bit despite those dozen donuts at the beginning of the month. I'll post tomorrow.

    Lisa, I hope you are okay - we tend to bruise easily as we age (you know, past 29). Your machine can be fixed, if need be, sometimes we take waaay longer to fix and generally pay for our injuries for a very long time.

    If I do anything, I know I take forever to heal now. Yes, no wonder, because In May I turn the big 60 . I wish I knew what to do with my hair. I have thick hair that has natural curl, but gray without my coloring it. I have kept it colored, but I do it myself which is getting harder to do. I went last time a couple of months ago, and had it cut in a straighter bob kinda short, but I have to use one of those irons to straighten it enough to look that way. I feel I need to just let it be the natural curl it is. What do you folks think? What is a good style for my age? I need to know to help with my weight loss thingy.

    June Billie, I love to see someone has just let their hair be with the natural curl - I guess it is because I am jealous, mine is naturally straight, and I have to have permanents to keep it curly. I used to have very thick dark brown hair, but since it has turned gray it is now very fine. I don't know why.

    Lisa hope the knee heals quickly. June Billie I would have your hair cut to take advantage of the natural curl and let it go natural. With the right cut you would probably only have to fluff it in the morning. I have the opposite problem. Mine is thin fine and straight. I fought with styling it for years. Tons of gel, curling irons. and hairspray. My hair finally won and I gave up. I had it cut short and I get out of the shower and fluff it a little bit. When it dries a little spritz of hair spray and I am ready to go. Even with all the gel and stuff it fell flat anyway. Go for an easy style you will love it.

    Thanks everyone for your hair comments. I do think I will go back to my natural curl, and easy fixing. We have another pretty day today.

    I'm in again, Cindy. I don't tend to post very much, but I do enjoy reading everyone's posts. (I'll try to post more this month.) I sent FQ for April, May, and June already.
    I'm in a hexagon frenzy! just learned how to do the English paper piecing and have made about 250 in the past 10 days! I'm going to make a couple of table runners with hexie flowers. I used a yellow leaf print with ladybugs as the hex for the center of each flower...so now they all have ladybugs!

    Good luck, everyone! If you're looking for a quick start, check out the Overnight Diet...it's a good eating plan that includes one day of homemade shakes (with protein powder or yogurt) and then 6 days of lean protein/low carb reasonable meals. Does a pretty good job of getting you started with a 2 lb loss from the shake day. My hubby is loving the shakes as well!
