Thumbs up Oct 2011 Weight Loss Adventure with a Prize! Winner is Createfourpaws

On October 1 weigh yourself and write it down. Do NOT send it to me. On October 31 weigh yourself again and PM me with your loss. This is weight lost not % lost. I will announce the winner November 2.

You can not win 2 months in a row.

Chit chat is allowed, as well as WAYWO, (what are we working on). Please stay positive and uplifting as that is what keeps us on track. Come to this thread for tips, recipes, encouragement and {{{{HUGS}}}}}}

The prize is a themed FQ. At the end of the month the people who didn't lose as much weight will contact the BIGGEST loser/winner for their information and sent them the themed FQ.

October is the time of fall festivals and cooling temperatures. This month's theme is BLUE AND/OR WHITE, in anticipation of the early snow. As always if you can not send the theme fabric please send what you have. If you don't have an FQ, send a linear 1/4 yard. If you have signed up to be in the competition, please send the winner her/his fabric. The winner has worked hard for this reward.

Eat healthy, exercise, try and lose weight but most of all have fun!!!!!!!!!!!

Sign up deadline to be included in the Prize Adventure is October 3 at 9 a.m. CST. You can always contribute to the thread, but it is only fair to have a cutoff for those trying to win.

TO PARTICIPATE, JUST SIGN IN HERE ON THIS THREAD BEFORE OCTOBER 3. THERE IS NO NEED TO PM FOR PARTICIPATION, JUST YOUR ENDING WEIGHT LOSS FOR THE MONTH.

I'm in and happy to be here!

You do NOT have to post your beginning weight here on the QB, but we ask that you write it down somewhere as a reminder to you where you have started this month. My swiss cheese brain can't remember from day to day, so I usually log in right here and record. If you don't write it here, write it on your bathroom mirror or somewhere that you will see your goal every day.

Myfitnesspal.com is a great place to find a ticker (see the bottom of my signature), a calorie counter, a user forum, and a weight and exercise tracker, all for FREE. These are tools I use every day, other members use different programs and they will happily tell you all about them.

I am in for another month. I don't expect to win a thing but sure hope to lose something! :) Putting on my jeans I see that the waistband is now resting at my belly button instead of under my tummy. It's a start, maybe this month I can actually go daown a size.
