Default May Weight Loss

May Weight Loss Challenge 2015

May 2015 Weight Loss Adventure with Prize!!
On May 1st, weigh yourself and write it down. DO NOT send it to me. On May 31st, weigh yourself again and PM me your loss. This is weight lost not percentage lost. I will announce the winner on June 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 positive and uplifting as possible to keeps us all on track. Share tips, recipes, encouraging words and {{{HUGS}}}
Hopefully May will be sunshiny. So I thought a good FQ theme for May would be brights so we are ready for June. So I think it is the month we should try to renew our commitment to weight loss and our health We need to get ready for swimsuit season. We are all so used to doing for others.Remember sometimes it is ok to put yourself first. So lets see how we can play with some your choice of 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 a part of the PRIZE adventure May 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 post on the thread and then send a PM for the mailing address. Our FQ theme for May is brights.

I will be having surgery tomorrow so I will probably be late answering a PM and other questions. I will see if I am able to get on the computer. Others on here should be able to answer most questions. Good luck to everyone.

To be fair to everyone, you need to base the winner on percentage lost, not the actual number of pounds lost. Why do you think The Biggest Loser does it that way? It gets harder to lose large amounts as you get closer to your goal weight.

This sounds like fun!! Please count me in! I have 40 pounds that I need to shed in all. I know all the right foods to be eating and I eat them right along with the wrong foods! My DH and I have both just steady gained weight in the past couple of years. The weather has been terrible for walking. So, we bought a Norditrak. Then my mama got sick and was in and out of the hospital. Which means we sat in the room with her and snacked on junk foods. We litteraly carried sacks of cookies, chips and crackers with us. So, here I am....... I look forward to sharing recipes with you. Or give and receive just good plain pep talks!! Good luck with your surgery meanmom!!

Not much to do BillieJean. After Meanmon recuperates a bit you can get her address and mail in a fat quarter for the month. Other than that, just join in on the chitchat. Maybe show us a pic of the quilt you are working on.
