Weight Loss Hand {Let’s Get Started or Catch Up}

Welcome everyone! I am so excited to begin these challenges with you. Some of you started with Shanna when she was the host, and some of you are new to this challenge group. Since some of you are behind and some of you haven’t even begun, I thought we would take this week to either start our cards or play “catch up.” So, these are the challenges Shanna had already posted. Feel free to do as many of them as you wish this week. Post a link to your cards in the comment section here. Each week I will highlight some of your cards right here! So be sure to post your link!

The 1st card prompt: The Goal….let’s see it! What do you want to accomplish?
The 2nd card prompt: “Key to Success” theme. Note the things on your card that will be key to your success!
The 3rd card prompt: Scrap a motivating quote on your card.
The 4th card prompt: Scrap about your food or drink weakness. Journal about how you’re going to overcome it.
The 5th card prompt: Create your card and show or tell what gift you will give yourself when you’ve reached your goal. And…..don’t just give yourself new clothes. You SHOULD get that regardless. Give yourself something REALLY special that will motivate you that much more!
The 6th card prompt: Scrap one word to describe your journey and use a Monogram for it somewhere on your card. It doesn’t have to be a positive word….it can be HARD. Be honest….this is YOUR album. What you are doing isn’t easy but it’s worth it.
The 7th card prompt: Use the theme of TIME somehow on your card. Anyway you want. For instance, Shanna used TIME to get Healthy. TIME to get into old clothes again. TIME to get my body back. TIME to improve my self-esteem. TIME for change.

I am also having a little drawing this week! For each weight loss challenge idea you send to me, I will enter your name into a drawing for a RAK. I will be using YOUR ideas for some of our challenges during the weeks to come. You never know when your idea might be used. Should be fun! E-mail those challenge ideas to me at tripletmom94@austin.rr.com. I will hold the drawing next Sunday (Aug. 26). All challenge ideas must be sent to me by Saturday, Aug. 25. So, get those ideas in girls. The more ideas you send, the more time your name gets put into the drawing. One of my girls will draw a winner! Now, get scrapping those cards, and have fun!

Can you help me a little here? I don't understand the use of the cards, what cards and how to "post" cards? Please for us newbies.

Patter Cross said...

Sure Deborah! :) First look at the cards I have already created. That will help you see "what cards." If you look under my "labels" then click "weigh loss cards," you will see them. Then once you make your cards, you post a comment here just like you already did with a link to where they are posted so we can see them. I hope this makes sense! :) E-mail if you have more questions.
