Default September 2012 Weight Loss Adventure with a prize!!!!

On September 1st weigh yourself and write it down. Do NOT send it to me. On September 30th weigh yourself again and PM me with your loss. This is weight lost not % lost. I will announce the winner October 2nd.

PM me for address. FQs need to be received no later than the 10th 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.
September is going into the fall, which reminds me of time changing from one season to another. Theme this month will be Fall Fabrics, what reminds you of fall. 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 September 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."

Yes Pink Lady, you send me as hostess the FQ or if you want to commit for multiple months, send for several months, I will be posting the themes for 4 months to save on postage. I will send you a PM with the mailing address of when to send them.

Good luck.

I'm back. I took August off for a lot of silly reasons, but I missed 'you guys' too much to just be a lurker. My weight is still hanging out in the same range. Coming back will give me some motivation. I already had two muffins instead of three and topped them with fat free vanilla Greek yogurt instead of cream cheese. See what a good influence we are on each other.

I will post more later as I am an orphan again this holiday.

Cindy, if the color was ever pink or coral, I might be more motivated. I need medium and dark florals for a Log Cabin wallhanging, though I bet I have enough when I look. In view of the fact I have a baby quilt on one machine for FMQ and snowballs on another, I'd better hold off starting the LC. I only have one design wall, LOL.

Cindy, I'm in. Will try to send all 4 FQs in the next week. I lost some last month, but nothing spectacular. Had a doctor's visit on Friday - had lost 11# in 5 months. Good for a loss, but abain, nothing spectacular. Need to really put this into high gear. Keep the chins up everyone - there's less of us out there!
