Default October Weight Loss Challenge

October Weight loss challenge

October 2014 Weight Loss Adventure with Prize!!
On October 1st, weigh yourself and write it down. DO NOT send it to me. On October 31st, weigh yourself again and PM your loss. This is weight lost not percentage lost. I will announce the winner on November 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}}}
IN October the leaves should be beautiful, and the weather cooler so lets find some creative ways to exercise. So lets see how we can play with some Christmas 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 is September 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.

Happy to be in again for October....still haven't touched the scale - so Tuesday's a big day.
Will hold off sending my Christmas fabric til I see if you decide on the Nov and Dec theme. Will be sending a linear 1/4 as both my favorite Christmas fabrics are linear patterns- and i think that would be more useful than cutting a FQ.
Thanks again for hostess-ing !

I guess a good theme for the next 3 months would be October/ Christmas, November/ red and December/ your choice. Good luck everyone.

I want to be in again. I'll go pick out my FQ's and get them in the mail next week. I haven't done anything positive on the weight loss challenge. I'm going to get my head in gear and get back on track. Well, at least that's what I want to do.
