Obstacles


Well I usually love a vintage shabby look. A pretty look. And sometimes I love a bright sunny look but this was not a pretty sunny week. I'ts still a struggle to regulate my medicine after having my thyroid removed and sometimes it really effects my best efforts at weight loss. Not to mention my energy and creativity! In retrospect I wish I would have tried harder to lose weight before all my surgery but that's the old hindsight's 20/20, right? So I really had to work hard to overcome some serious obstacles on the weight loss plan that I chose and this reflects that.
Also couldn't quite decide how to handle the color scheme on this week's palette at the Color Room. I was sitting in a waiting room and decided to find all my elements in a magazine if I could so this is more of a collage I guess. But it was fun and all's well that ends well, eh? Now I'm going to work on my sunny "reward" piece because I'm feel better and think I may have this under control for a bit. Thanks for the kind comments and encouraging emails as I keep moving forward on this path and I wish you all the best on each of your endeavors as well.... :) See you soon!

A cool layout using collage elements.

How wonderful that you are journaling again! Good luck with the weight loss (that's a difficult endeavor for most) and so glad that your muse is expressing your journey with such lovely art!
