Default September Weight loss challenge

September Weight Loss
September 2014 Weight Loss Adventure with Prize!!
On September 1st, weigh yourself and write it down. DO NOT send it to me. On September 30th, weigh yourself again and PM your loss. This is weight lost not percentage lost. I will announce the winner on October 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 September, hopefully the weather will cool down a little bit so lets find some creative ways to exercise. So lets see how we can play with some pink 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.

Since I am late posting this thread I will leave the sign ups open a couple of extra days. With the start of the school year and the holiday weekend the end of August creeped up on me. The FQ theme for September is pink. Good luck to everyone.

I'm in and you should have my FQ (last one before I need to mail more). Thanks, Pat, after this week I'm surprised you even have enough energy to get on the thread at all.

Exercise is good for you; no doubt.....but at WW recently I learned that for losing weight, it's more about what you put into your mouth. It's 75% about food and 25% about activity.
