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.

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.

I agree this, but meanmom did start the contest....

Good luck with your surgery--prayers for a speedy recovery.

I am in for May and pray I get back on the wagon.

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!!

Hi I would like to join in on the weight loss
What else do I need to do. My computer is acting up, I am using my phone...thanks

Pam H 04-28-2015 05:42 PM

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.
