I want to list some of my goals. I think if i put them down on paper, so to speak, they would seem more real to me, and then they would be easier to achieve. So, here they are:

  1. I want to take a cruise to Alaska. I have always wanted to do this, I think the Alaskan landscape has to be one of the most beautiful in the world. I think the experience of taking a cruise would be awesome. The sea, the water, the environment of relaxation, it all seems so heavenly.
  2. I want to swim with the dolphins. I have always loved dolphins, they are one of the most intelligent, majestic animal on earth. Swimming, free, playing, I would be so happy to do this.
  3. I want to do more photography. I love capturing the moment on film. I like preserving memories and having something tangible to look at and cherish when everything else is over.

To do these things, I must lose weight. I can not or will not subject myself to the embarrassment and humiliation of trying to do these things at my current weight. It is simply not possible. Aside from the physical impossibility of it, I would not let myself have a good time. I would be so worried the whole time of how people are looking at me, thinking about me, judging me for being fat. I would not have a good time. So it is up to me to get off my butt and get moving. I am not getting any younger, I will be 42 this year. I need to pump it up!!!

These are some of the pages I did for my neice's bridal scrapebook. This was the first time I had tried to do a theme book, and it is actually the most pages I've ever done. The book is an 8x8 book, all the papers were varied, and most of the stickers are Jolee's. I had a lot of fun, I can totally understand how this can be addicting.
