  • 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!! - 7/1/2012 12:19:09 PM
  • I've recently started scrapbooking, but never thought to scrapbook my weight loss adventures. Thanks so much for this great, motivating idea! - 4/20/2012 11:43:06 AM
  • 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! - 4/12/2012 11:32:20 AM
  • How inspirational this story is. I am just starting out on this journey. Now I feel motivated to move on. Thank-you! - 2/25/2012 9:29:56 PM
  • Emmy - what a great idea. I love to scrap too! You're book looks fabulous - I know you do to; inside and out! Best wishes on your continued journaling and healthy lifestyle! - 2/6/2012 8:38:51 PM
  • i joined sparkpeople a while ago and I just had 1 excuse after another not to have the time to commit myself to continue with the logging and the articles and all the great stuff this has to offer. When I started to read your story about journaling I figured it was just another one of those articles, But I found it to be so much more. It has really given me some encouragement to continue and concentrate on myself and what I really want out of life from myself. And if it wasn't for the person that commented earlier today I would not have had the courage to write this. I guess this is a start to changing for the better! Thanks! - 1/29/2012 5:51:58 PM

    This is a great idea to help set goals with pictures. I can tell you looking at recent pictures of myself is one of the reasons I am dieting. - 9/21/2011 9:12:24 PM
  • I would like to share with Emmy that I am inspired by her journals. I am an avid journaler and want to create a journal for the weight loss journey. I looked for a group but did not find one yet that has journalers that will share like Emmy has. Thank you. - 5/29/2011 11:11:12 AM

  • Wow Jan: That was an awesome story. I think I can motivate myself also, since you did such a good job yourself. You inspire me. Haajtjjj1 - 5/13/2011 3:31:53 PM
  • What a great idea! I just picked up a pretty hardcover journal last night at the store because I want to keep something close to me that I can jot in as things come up. I never thought to actually scrapbook it! Great idea! - 5/13/2011 10:06:57 AM
  • You have inspired me. I have been thinking about creating a "motivation book," but hadn't started. I really like your ideas. I can't read the info on the footprints. Can you describe that photo and the details on the footprints, please? - 5/13/2011 9:54:12 AM
