January starts the new year so it is time for renewed commitment to our health. It is a good time to make a new start of things and begin an exercise program. So I thought a good FQ theme for January would be brights. This would make a beautiful quilt for our bright new beginning for a new year. 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 the renewed commitment to our health. 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!!!

I was prediabetetic and my Dr showed me the best thing to do pickup anything you are going eat an read the label on the back if the sugar level goes over 10 grams don't eat and I mean don't eat it fresh fruit is ok , not more than 2 slices of bread in a day, no more meat than can fit on the palm of your hand in a day , bingo I lost 45 lbs in three months.

Hi, I'm back for the new year and rarrin' to go! Thanks meanmom for being our hostess. I like the 'bright' fabric for the new year.

Hope my internet gets fixed soon so that I can actually be online every day.

Happy New Year to everyone!

Hey there everyone. I have struggled with my weight for all of my adult life. I have not been a healthy weight since high school. I am now 33 years old and am the heaviest I have been. Something has got to change. I think the idea of having some form of motivation, in this case fabric, is a great idea. Good luck to you all! We can do this!
