Weight Loss Journals: Hands-On Inspiration

A Creative Way to Stay Motivated


  • Wonderful idea. I'm starting Insanity as soon as it comes in and think I'll scrap journal my way through it. - 11/9/2010 9:59:56 AM
  • 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! - 8/12/2010 5:30:44 PM

  • I actually started a weigh loss scrapbook when i first started losing weight a couple of years ago, now i am back on here and back at losing weight i want to start back on my scrapbook but need a few ideas of ways to work up pages. anyone got any neat ideas that may help us all - 5/27/2010 4:42:07 PM
  • 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 - 5/24/2010 8:33:46 AM
  • I just re-read this article and noticed that I had already saved it. The last time I was on sp I had thought about doing a weight loss journal/scrapbook. Thanks for offering this article again. The scrapbook and some beginning pages will be my reward for meeting my 21 days binge-free goal (I'm at 17 days binge-free now.). This has renewed my resolve to truly journal my weight-loss journey. Again, thanks. - 5/13/2010 9:52:05 PM
  • Awesome job!! I recognize a lot of Creative Memories products in your albums. Being a consultant myself this gives me a great idea for something to do for myself!! - 5/13/2010 1:06:53 PM
  • This looks like a fun idea. time to break out the stickers and pens lol - 5/13/2010 12:20:53 PM
  • i want to say thanks, that is a great idea. i'm going out to buy everything i need to start one for myself. because i know i can use that kick in the butt to move again. - 5/13/2010 12:05:20 PM
    Wow!!! What a terrific idea!!! Thank you :) - 5/13/2010 10:36:05 AM
  • SUUUUUPER idea! I'm thinking of how I used to HATE having my picture taken and what memories my kids have lost of me during the "dark" years. This idea is terrific and I'd like to start one....thanks for sharing yours!

  • I, too, am an avid scrapbooker. I had thought about trying to make a scrapbook of my weight loss journey, but wasn't sure how to start. Thanks for sharing your GREAT idea! I will get started now. Thanks again! - 3/15/2010 12:01:20 PM
  • What a GREAT idea. As a personal trainer, working with a client who LOVES to scrap-book, and she's embarking upon a lenghty weight loss journey, this is just PERFECT! Thanks! : ) - 1/14/2010 10:25:58 PM
