Emmy, I'm just as blown over by your diary/journal scrapbook for your health journey as everyone else! It seems that if anyone has done this before that u r the only 1 who shared this concept of celebrating your efforts which puts the "pleasure" principle into effect. Creating this type of memoir leads to a desire to make it real and make it beautiful for posterity.

What a fabulous idea!! I have written journals of my past progress and a small book of pictures, but I've never thought to put the 2 together. Looks like I found an idea for an early Christmas present for myself.

I LOVE your idea, and now want to start a journal myself, for the same reasons - sometimes I just wanna, gotta have dessert or whatever, something is calling my name, and sometimes I just don't care; if I would pick up that journal and read that just a few months ago I would get cramps while trying to reach a particular spot to wash in the shower, or that I couldn't sit down or stand up without holding onto something because my knees hurt so much, but now I don't get those cramps and my knees don't hurt that much anymore, I think reading that would help keep me on track!

What a wonderful idea! Keeping a food journal alone is quite boring, your idea of documenting the journey is so much better. I started mine yesterday, and today I added the worst picture of me I could find! That alone should keep me motivated! LOL
