WW Bling

Since returning from my wonderful vacation, I've returned to my Weight Watchers class and am trying to get motivated to lose the rest of my excess weight!

I decided to start a brand new food diary/weight loss journal to help improve my motivation, but it did look rather drab and uninspiring.  So, I decided to 'bling' it up a bit and make it more attractive to use, which should help me, also the time I spent decorating it stopped me thinking about wanting to eat something LOL 

I used up some magazine freebie papers and toppers, created sentiments on my computer and used nesties to cut out the label shapes.  Touches of Stickles and Glossy Accents added some 'bling' and the little flowers were cut using a Spellbinders die from the Persian Accents set, finished off with pink tinged clear gems from my stash.  The pretty corner embellies were also cut with a die from the same set. 

So, here's the front
Here's the back

and I made a corner bookmark to mark my place in the journal and added some inspirational text to make me think about how my day is going each time I add something on the day's page

It might seem  a bit odd to have all these yummy cakes on the covers of my weight loss journal, but my thought process was that if I am craving sweet things to eat, I could pick up my journal instead and get a calorie free sugar hit !

Hope you've enjoyed seeing my little bit of indulgent crafting, and wish me luck for when I go to be weighed next tuesday, I'm working hard to achieve at least a 2lb loss this week !  Thanks for dropping by today.
