  • 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

  • I'm going to use my blog for this. - 1/26/2012 11:00:48 AM
    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
  • I have had a really hard time getting started & staying motivated. Thanx 4 the awsome inspiring ideas. It really lifted my spirits. - 5/17/2011 4:07:35 PM
  • Feeling lazy and unmotivated today .... until I read this article! - 5/15/2011 12:29:02 PM
  • 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
  • I have made many, many Creative Memories scrapbooks. Don't know why it never occurred to me to make one for this, my most important journey! Thanks! - 5/13/2011 9:22:31 AM
    Thank you that is a wonderful idea. I think I will start mine today. You have already started helping others. Keep up the good work, and remember YOU ARE WORTH IT..... - 5/13/2011 8:12:02 AM
  • 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. - 5/13/2011 7:49:16 AM
