Who Am I - Post one

The First Phots was taken by my husband when we had been dating about a month in 1993.
The second photo was taken at a scrapbooking christmas dinner party in 2007.

I have to be honest and tell you this book has been year's in the making and most of it has just been rolling around in my head. I was inspired at a crop I attended with my Niece Jennifer, Dear Friend Charmaine and Charmaines friend (who's name escapes me right now). Any way Char's friend had undergone lapband surgery and has lost an incredible amount of weight! She made a scrapbook of her weight loss journey, including photos all along the way, a wonderful diary of her emotional journey thru it, it was completely amazing! She inspired me. So since over the past 10 or so years I have packed on an incredible amount of weight, I thought I would make myself a similar diet journal! Last year I started my book and this was the first page.....and like my weight loss in 2009 it did not go too far. Over that past year I have come across photos and mementos from my life and my book has evolved from a weight loss journal to a "Life’s Pictorial about Me"! Who I am! It is still an emotional journey, life has had its twists and turns, but now my book is half full! Maybe in 2010 I will be able to add some weight loss journaling in as well! Who knows!
