Thanks for the info and ideas! One of my goals is a weight loss journal, but I wasn't sure where to start.

I also keep a journal although mine is not as creative. I use a regular lined spiral notebook and when I first began, I tracked my current weight, my pounds to go, and the exercises I have done for the day. I would weigh myself once a week and then highlight green for a loss, red for a gain, and blue for plateau. I have recently started to incorporate more of my feelings into the journal as well as things I do not want to forget such as my hairdresser saying "well you are a bigger girl". These are great re-motivators that I have re-read many times to stay on track.

What a great idea! Keeping a journal might be a good idea. I am posting my tracked fitness on Facebook now. I have extremely supportive friends who will surely start asking if the posts stop, so that keeps me accountable a bit :). But a scrap book just for me... great idea!!! I might rather do it in a digital way though, maybe keeping it to the blog on my personal page or do something private additionally... Not sure how but you made me want to think of something, thanks!!!

I've been a scrapbooker and a journaler for over 45 years, and your article about combining the two in a weight loss journal is great! Thanks for sharing and I am going to start mine today!!

I've recently started scrapbooking, but never thought to scrapbook my weight loss adventures. Thanks so much for this great, motivating idea!

I have a bit of a crafting thumb when I'm inspired, and this was a great feature on the website today! I'm currently on a 30 day pledge of going vegan, and I've been trying to keep an accountability journal myself! I've been attempting to write in it everyday, but I feel like it would be even better to do what Emmy did and break it down into areas that show the highest and lowest points of the journey. What a great keepsake to have and share!
