yay me!

yay me!

I made this layout tonight and uploading it is making me more than a bit nervous i can
assure you. I almost didn't do it. I've always been heavy but it wasn't until I saw the photos
taken in Queensland that I realised just how bad things had become and I kew I had to turn my life around
so I joined Curves and started moving my lazy butt and began eating better. It's not always easy and I
do sometimes fall from grace but when that happens I pick myself up and dust myself off and get back to it.
In about 5 1/2 months I've lost 14 kilos which is a lot of weight and I need to lose that much again, I'll
still be a bit chubby but I can live with that, I know I'll never be super slim lol. The layout is not finished,
I've deliberately left a space for another photo to be added in the new year sometime when I've lost some more
weight, when that day comes I shall finish the layout and repost it here so you can all see how I'm doing. This
is going to be my desktop to keep me motivated.

    You look amazing! It's not an easy journey, but hang in there. It's so worth it! I can't wait to see the last photo. As for your layout, it's beautiful! I love the colors and the stripes. The journaling placement under each photo is perfect. Congratulations on your loss so far!!
