time to conquer change

this is my layout for the february challenge at the pretty committee. the theme is "time for change." join in and you might get a chance to win some goodies from paper trail studio.

i decided to scrap about my weight issues with myself. as you can see in the photos, that is my weight progression since 2004. i wasn't really thin in 2004 but i definitely lost a lot of weight then. but sadly, i gained them all back, and more, over the course of years. hopefully, scrapping about it will make me commit more to a better me in 2009.
Journal:
I've gained so much weight over the past years. I admit I lost control, I lost the drive to keep the weight off. Life just took over. It was easier to put off going to the gym than making a conscious effort to lose it. I've actually done it before, lose the weight that is. This year I vow to lose it once more. I know I can do this. I must drive myself to believe that I can and I will. One step at a time. I will conquer this. (Feb '09)

  1. Wow - awesome topic.
    I feel the same about myslef wouldn't be brave enough to do a LO though and post the pics. I salute you and hope you win the battle of the bulge. It gets so much harder after 40!

  6. sama ako diyan, sis. the banana diet seems to be working, albeit in a slow pace of epic proportions. but at least my cholesterol is going down :)
