Weight Loss Journals: Hands-On Inspiration

A Creative Way to Stay Motivated


    Hi I m new here .. first time posting a message . I like that idea of the journal ..I think it helps you keep a track of your goal to lose weight and stay healthier but also to distract yourself doing scrapbooking .. i like that .. I m really having a hard time to how to start a program for me .. my doctor wants me to do a low carb diest and lose some weight ,, boy I feel like a lost puppy .. what to cook ..where to start .. hmmm ... I ll try this site and see what happens . - 7/3/2008 10:02:28 AM
    What a great idea! I have lots of scrapbooking supplies that I have not used. I will inventory the box this weekend, replace used items, and begin my Weight Loss Journey journal as well.

    Thanks for sharing. - 6/23/2008 12:03:11 PM
    What a great idea! I am extremely camera shy so this would be an obstacle to overcome to get photos of myself but I can create things from within . Thank you for sharing! - 5/24/2008 12:14:48 PM

    I just love this idea!!! Thanks so much for highlighting it!!! I am very glad I "happened" upon it.

    I am going to start one myself, with one major goal being a half marthon In Dec. which will be for my birthday to myself.

    I know I will be buying myself a new album just for my weightloss journey!!!

    Thanks again,

  • I am a brand new member and one of my fast track goals is to keep a daily journal - i love scrapbookking so i think each week will be a new mini scrapbook - making the scrapbook will also help keep my mind off food and on more creative matters - 3/24/2008 8:47:03 AM
  • Great Idea, will start one of my own. Plus might share it with my Scrapbooking class
    I teach at the senior center twice a month. - 3/17/2008 8:29:24 PM
    Journaling works. When I journal, I am very successful because it makes me conscious of what i put in my mouth. Thanks for reminding to keep up with this effort. It really does make a difference! - 3/4/2008 2:28:13 PM
  • Thank you. This takes the frightening statistic style that frightened me from journaling. Your examples put fun into the idea. - 3/1/2008 10:06:08 PM
  • I love your scrapbook. Great idea! thanks for sharing! - 3/1/2008 12:09:59 PM
  • While journalling on-line, such as with SparkPeople, is fantastic, having something tangible like Emmy's scrapbook journal seems like even more. (Not that we would give up our SparkPeople journalling, of course!) Plus, scrapbooking itself is relaxing, and the task of planning the page, choosing the photos, etc., causes one to focus on the GOAL. What a great idea, Emmy! - 2/29/2008 12:40:28 PM
