This is a spin off from the weigh in and FQ thread. this will make it easier for Lneal.

We are here to support each other in our journey to lose weight. This is where you will come to post recipes or helpful diet and exercise tips along with the weight you have lost(if you chose to) It is also where you could be the winner of a prize if you lose the most amount of weight for the month. At the end of each month there will be a sign up thread for whoever whats to play the following month. If you are the biggest looser you will win a quilt related prize. This prize could be anywhere from FQ's or a 12 1/2 quilt block sent to you by the other players or even a gift card to a quilt/fabric store that the players chipped in for. Each month it will be a different theme, but the rules are the same. Sign up and PM me (trupeach1) Weigh yourself the 1st of the month and write it down. 4 weeks later weigh yourself again and PM me with the weight you have lost. I will announce the winner of the most weight lost and the rest of the players will send the prize directly to them except the month that there might be a gift card. Once the winner is posted you have to contact them for their addy.

As I stated above the prize will be a themed FQ or if it would happen to be a gift card we would chip in $1.50 about the price of a FQ. I will post what the prize will be for the following month on the sign up thread. There has be about 25 people that have played the past 2 months that means the winner would get a total of about 6 yds of FQ fabric, 25 beautiful blocks to make a quilt or if it would be a gift card about $37.

So lets make this work, sign up join in drop those extra pounds and get healthier.

I have been stuck on a plateau for weeks & weeks. Decided I would try the low carb again. It has worked for me before. So sign me up for May! Congrats to the winners in April! :thumbup:

This sounds like a cool idea, I've been on weight loss journey for about a year (lost 100lbs) and have 20 more to loose. I'll keep following while you hammer out the rules for joining. I weighed yesterday so I will be good to go.
