    I have a 2013 resolution that I need you guys to hold me accountable for...and I am hoping you won't mind if I keep this post updated...
    In 2013 I am making a commitment to be "Fit by 50"!! I will turn 50 in one year (Jan 2014)...so I am committing to Weight loss but mostly cooking and becoming HEALTHY (something I haven't been in a LONG time) ...and having put lots of thought and prayer into it, I decided to combine my love of Scrapbooking, Disney and the Disboards to achieve this goal. I purchased a cool spiral book from Hobby Lobby that has 5 sheets of journal pages and then sleves for 4 photos and there are 12 sections like that so I can use a section per month to journal and create a photo trail of my Fit by 50 year 2013!!! I firgured it would be like combining a Project life and smash book. Hopefully I can use this thread to post results as I go along. I know this is a scrapbook thread...not a WL thread but I just enjoy you guys so much I am hoping that it will be ok with you all????? If not I completely understand...and if anyone wants to join me in this adventure...PLEASE jump on board!

    A great idea - I've been thinking this is something I'd like to try also! There is a local 5k in August that I would love to be able to do with my kids.

    So I'll be cheering you on, also! :banana:

    Wish I had done that at 50! As it was, I didn't start until 61, but the journey has been worth it and will continue for life.

    YOU CAN DO IT.

    Baby steps.

    You may also want to post over on the W.I.S.H board, as well. (But don't leave this one! Some of the rest of us also need the inspiration)

    Good Luck!

    Awesome idea- while I am going to do a daily gratitude journal- changing to a more healthy lifestyle and exercising more and actually losing weight and keeping it off. So I will be right there with you and I think I will do a monthly page about it- I certainly already have either calendar pages of pieces I could use for the main elements on the page anyway.

    We have had weight loss threads for groups of us here on the board in the past- I think they have been done on the main board in the past- also we have had organizing thread (both for the whole house and for our scraprooms) at times.

    I will cheer you on too! I still struggle with healthy habits, but over the past year have become much better. I love your idea of keeping a monthly journal!

    What a great idea! I lost about 50 pounds last year because I was so sick. My plan for this year is the exercising piece so I can tone up and be healthier. Maybe I'll do a journal too (it might help keep me on track ;))

    WTG! I've been very lax in taking care of myself these past few years. I need to focus on being healthy, happy, and living in the moment far more than I do right now. Good luck! We'll be here to cheer you on! :cheer2:

    I am also revamping my lifestyle too. I'd love to see your book, I have thought about starting one but that means I have to commit 110% LOL

    Hmmmm, I wonder if I have a smash type book I can use here.

    Awesome idea! You will be amazed when the pictures start rolling in. That is how I can really tell I am making weight loss progress.

    Here is the book I purchased at Hobby Lobby...Can't wait to start creating/designing...both the book and me :)

    Here is the front:

    These are the journal pages. There are 5 journal pages per section and there are 12 sections (=1 section per month this year):
    [​IMG]

    This is the photo sleve...4 photos per section
    [​IMG]

    This is the black folder page right behind the photo sleves. Both front and back are pocket pages:

    This shows how the book is in sections:

    Love that book! Do you know who the manufacturer is? I haven't seen them at my local ACMoore or Michaels. It's about an hour's drive to a Hobby Lobby so would want to call before I go.

    Thanks!
