Getting Ready to Lose Weight

I started my weight loss challenge #2 last Tuesday and I am so excited. I have already lost 35 lbs and have about 15 more to go. Anyways one of our first challenges was to decorate our folder for the team challenge. The theme this challenge is freedom; freedom from the extra weight we are carrying around. I cant take a good picture of my folder because the star paper is so reflective and I didnt have navy paper for our team name "Shrinky Dinks" but I used a white gel pen to make the letters stand out. It was the first time I used acrylic stamps (Stampology alphabet set) and I lost one so I had to improvise turning a L into a 1. I wish I could show you how cute it is, but pictures do not do it justice. I also used a cute quote I found on a half used sheet of sayings that I picked up at a garage sale. It says "Take Pride in how far you've come, have Faith in how far you can go." This is going to help me stay strong in my way of eating and realize that I have come a long ways, but I can continue on and reach my goal weight.

I will post the products I used in a little while. And a picture of the letters once I used a white gel pen on them.

Love Holly!
