    October 2012 Weight Loss Adventure with a Prize!!!!!

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

    PM me for address. FQs need to be received no later than the 15th of month.

    You cannot 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, I will mail all the FQs received to the winner by the 5th of the month. I will contact the winner and announce the winner with the number of FQs they will receive.

    October fall is in full swing and gets some of us thinking of the upcoming holidays. Theme this month will be shades of green Fabrics, what reminds you of Christmas. Please send quality what you would want to receive. As always if you cannot send the theme fabric please send what you have. If you don't have a FQ, send a linear 1/4 yard. If you have signed up to be in the competition, please send the FQ to hostess by the 10th of the month. 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 4th at 9 p.m. CST, with your FQ received by the 15th of month. 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 SEPTEMBER 4TH. THERE IS NO NEED TO PM FOR PARTICIPATION, JUST YOUR ENDING WEIGHT LOSS FOR THE MONTH.

    You must sign into the thread at least weekly to be eligible for the winning "skinny quarters" or to be declared "best loser for the month."

    I've already sent my FQ, so I'm in. This will be my month - not to win, but to lose weight.

    tell us all about your vacation when you get back. If you feel waiting until November to start is better, cause I know we dont always do what is best when on vacation. have a great trip.

    If you still want to join in for October please send you FQ before you head out of town.

    Ladies,

    Please remember to include your screen name somewhere on the envelope or inside. I have several that I only have last name and with that I don't know who to give credit to. Thank you for your help.

    I will be posting what the themes will be for all of next year for those who like to send in multiple months. And if anyone has suggestion, I am all ears.

    Keep up your hard work on losing. I didn't do as well last month.

    Most of us use the home scale, so yes it is ok.

    Enjoy your vacation.

    I'm in for October. I sent in my FQ's last month for all four months posted - or was it three. I dunno, I've slept since then. Anyway, I'm in for a LOSS - a BIG loss - which means I need to be more aware of my exercise. I don't think I eat that badly, I just don't exercise.
    Pam asked me to take over for the Taboo Tuesdays. I saw a posting in September about Try it Tuesdays (thinking positive versus negative), so I'll try to mix it up. BUT, that being said, I need your help. What types of things make you gain - what types of things might you like to try? Let me know what I can add to this post to help us all. Thanks.

    Cindy, I'm back in for October. Need a lot of accountability!!! Please!!! But I need to know what the FQ's are for the next months. Will send them out Wed. when I go see Mom.

    Most of Mom's furniture went to an auction on Saturday. Now I'm getting ready to take a lot of hers and ours to a garage sale. Lot of boxes sitting around - and I hate the feeling it brings. But whatever we can get rid of now will be that much less when DH retires and we move. 2 1/2 years to detrash and declutter. I'll need every bit of that time it looks like.

    DH is out of town this week, so I'm going to try to be very good on the eating. Thank goodness, all the "junk food" is out of the house.

    Be good to YOU!!!

    I know I've been MIA September but want to join again. I swear my FQ will go out ASAP. Was doing a fundraiser for Senior Hounds Abound in Florida and it just suced up my time. Haven't even looked at this site for like 2 weeks.

    Well I guess that is one benefit of having to go gluten free, the flours are more expensive so I don't bake cookies much anymore. I will probably make a few dozen around the holidays. Boy I agree Kathleen, I really need to move more. I don't eat much junk, but I do probably eat portions that are too big and I don't get enough exercise.

    Taboo Tuesday - this week, on a positive note - add an extra helping of veggies to your daily diet along with that water and exercise.
