Project - Getting Real & Getting Fit! - Weight Loss Journal

Here is the start of what will be a very motivating weight loss journal. I've enjoyed making it so far and it has served me well to remind me of why I'm doing this.
<b>Page 1 - Title page.</b> “Getting Real & Getting Fit!”<br><br>
<b>Page 2 & 3 - My Statistics (Challenge Week #1).</b> In the hidden journaling it tells my weight and my measurements when I began this challenge on April 22, 2006.<br><br>
<b>Page 4 & 5 - My Goals (Challenge Week #2).</b> In the hidden journaling I tell of my goals. They are as follows: <br>1) To feel better about my body.<br> 2) To be healthy and make healthier decisions (even when I'm alone). <br>3) To be able to walk up 3 flights of stairs without being winded. <br>4) To walk (or run?) a 10 minute mile. <br>5) To enter a marathon and finish <br>6) To learn to kayak <br>7) Take an adventurous vakay (white water rafting? Rapelling in Costa Rica?) <br>8) To be a good example for my daughter and to teach her good habits. <br>9) To weight ~ 130 lbs. To wear a size 10 or 12. <br>10) For my family to be proud of me and for me to be proud of myself.
<br><br><b>Page 6 & 7 - Why and Why Now? (Challenge Week 3). </b>Wow, this topic really made me think. My computer-generated journaling reads:<br><br>
“Why and Why now? It's a good question. I think the answer is that I just got fed up with looking the way I do. I want to look good in clothes, I want to be able to look at myself naked without thinking that I need to change parts of my body. I have pretty good self-esteem overall which is surprising. But I do know that I am not in good physical condition and I am a good candidate to either die of a heart attack like my father or have heart issues like my mother. I don't want to follow in the same footsepts.
I want to be proud of myself when I catch my relfection in the mirror. Not have to adjust my shirt or change the way my body is positioned in order to think I look okay. I want my husband to want to show me off. To be proud of the way his wife looks. I want to be proud of the way I look too!
The tags on the second page read:
1) To change something that I have 100% control of.<br>
2) To Feel Good!<br>
3) To Look Good!<br>
Handwritten journaling: It's time to change my life. It's time to feel good about myself. It's time to put the self-consciousness aside and eal with the situation at hand. It's time to get real & get fit!!!
<b>Page 8 & 9 - What Motivates Me? (Challenge Week 4).</b> Easy topic. This one came right to me. There are a few things that motivate me. The journaling reads:
* Motivation Speeches from Alexis<br>
* Achieving a Personal Exercise/fitness Goal<br>
* ”Atta Girls" from my family<br>
* To have Alexis be proud of me<br>
* Wanting my husband to think I'm beautiful AND sexy<br>
* Thick belts with tucked in shirts<br>
* Beautiful Clothes<br>
