I am a serial dieter, and am DETERMINED to get some weight off this year!! In the past, I have made myself a Weight Loss Motivation book, which I have carried around with me and when I have needed some inspiration, (i.e., when being faced with a slab of cake that I know I don't really need!) I have quick taken it out and opened it at random, to get a little nugget of motivation to steel my willpower again! I thought it would be fun to do this for a swap, so here's what I'm thinking:

  • Get a small notebook, small enough to fit into a handbag and be carried around. Either buy a beautiful book, or make it beautiful yourself with embellishments, etc.

  • Fill at least 25 sides (at random throughout the book) with motivation! This can be a mixture of inspirational quotes, medical facts about obesity and the benefits of weight loss, jokes, pictures, lyrics, reasons for losing weight, etc etc. Anything that will be MOTIVATION for someone trying to lose weight. You can decorate more than 25 but leave some of them blank so the recipient can add their own personal motivating factors too.

  • Make it look really nice - don't just write in a black ballpoint! Add stickers, embellishments, use different coloured pens etc. Make it a happy book!

I am giving this quite a long time before the send deadline as I don't want them to be rushed!

Please feel free to join if you are new with no ratings or have a good rating, 4.8 or over. Please message me if you have recent no sends if you want to join. This is my first hosting experience and I want to be able to protect the participants :) I really hope there will be no flaking and I will be DEVASTATED if so but we will find angels, I promise, if it happens! I am really looking forward to this being a success, so fingers crossed! Let's motivate each other!!! xoxoxo

Im not planing on joining this swap, but i wanted to share a little weight loss tip. Ive been using the "my net Diary" iphone App since August and ive lost 25lbs. Its a food diary with a calorie calculator and a huge food database. they also have a website mynetdiary.com. Ive tried weight watchers and other diets before, but this is they only thing that has ever worked. it breaks down your calories, fiber, carbs etc. it analyzes your day and tells you what youve done well on and what youve done poorly on that day. This sounds like a fun swap, i am just not able to participate at this time. i just wanted to share my weight loss tip! Good luck everyone!

I'm in! I I already have lots of ideas; I just need a small journal. I thought it might be nice to keep in touch with our partners in addition to the journal.
