Altered Journal Blog Hop

Welcome to the Altered Journal Blog Hop.  If you arrived here from Connie's blog you are in the right place.  If you just dropped in, please start at the beginning with Melissa's blog

I have been on a weight loss journey for the past several months.  I keep track of my exercise (which is very limited at this time), my food and my thoughts overall.  If I had to write in the first page of my journal I would most likely be my food intake for the day.  I find it helpful to keep track of what I eat in order to keep healthy and to see where I can make changes for weight loss.

Here is my journal I made for my purse:
