    The Rules.................On Oct 1 you will weigh yourself and write it down DO NOT PM ME. On Oct 31 weigh yourself again and PM me with your loss. THIS IS THE ONLY TIME YOU PM ME. I will not keep track of you loss you HAVE to do it yourself. If you would like to post your weight on the thread that is your choice, you do not have to tell anyone your weight. On Nov 1 I will announce the biggest loser. The people who didn't lose as much weight has to send the biggest loser a FQ. You will follow this thread for support, recipes and encouragement along with personal trials and tribulations. So exercise, eat healthy, lose weight and most of all have fun.

    This months FQ theme...................... Oct is the month of Halloween, pumpkins, scarecrows and jack-o-lanterns. It is also the month that all the Christmas catalogs arrive in my mailbox. This month the winners prize will be CHRISTMAS FQ's. As always if you do not have Christmas fabric you can send what you have, I do not want anyone left out just because they don't have the themed FQ.

    Let the fun begin :D :D :D :D

    OOOOOPPPPPPPPPPPP almost forgot you can not win/ be the biggest loser 2 months in a row.

    Are we still going by who lost the most pounds or are we doing percentage this month?

    I'm in too. Win or lose, I'm a winner either way. Any pound lost is 2 pounds not gained!

    I know doing % is more fair, however I am not good at math and with so many people joining each month it would be a full time job. People have said they would do the math and then I never hear from them again. They sign up and that's it not even a PM at the end of the month. Also I know bigger people usually lose more wight but that is not always the case I have had some months where the biggest loser was 8 or 10 lbs other months several people had lost 12-15 lbs. It is a crap shoot and this is all for fun for this month will will stick with the lbs lost. If someone is a math wiz and wants to take on the job, not just say they will take it on but follow through then next month we could do %.
