Every New Year's I make a resolution to lose weight but the only thing I seem to be able to lose and keep off is my self-esteem, Dreading the thought of failing at another diet, berating myself and feeling as though I can't  succeed  at anything I do, made me realize that maybe the reason I haven't succeeded at weight loss was because I didn't really believe I deserved to be thin (along with a list of other self imposed mis-beliefs). My self esteem has suffered terribly.

In order to reach my heart's true desires and live my life to it's full potential,  I decided I needed to work on my self-esteem, and Being an  artistic, crafty and highly visual person, I knew that in order to succeed I would need  a hands on, highly visual and artistic craft project, in addition to books on improving self-esteem, positive affirmations and positive self talk.So the Me Scrapbook was born.
But what to put in it?

Pictures of my accomplishments, words of encouragement, positive affirmations, compliments I have received, My talents, my positive personality traits
and anything that is positive and encouraging.

I found this 4"x 6" - 200 photo, Photo  album at a thrift shop to use as my scrapbook.




My talents, illustrated by projects I have created


My personality traits ( all the images on these pages were hand drawn by me)



positive affirmations


My Favorite page, a work in progress

My real iPod, and why the above is my favorite



By using a 4"x6" photo album I can easily take a page with me on days I need to remind myself of what a wonderful person I am

That's really nice. I hope it makes you as happy as it makes me just looking at the photos. :]

it is not inertia alone that is responsible for human relationships repeating themselves, monotonous and un-renewed, it is shyness before all else.

WOW! Youre such a great inspiration to us all! You are so talented.  I wish I could draw half as well as you.  I love your idea so much.  I know I can be really harsh on myself when I dont do something perfect.  Its good to remind ourselves sometimes that we really are awesome, even if we arent perfect.  Congrats and Good Luck to your new goals!

Easier said than done, I know, but you have to start believing in your self. You are an amazing artist and hopefully this book will help you on that journey.

You should print of your compliments from this forum and add them to your book!

Wow, this is really great!  You have an amazingly beautiful project coupled with some real honesty about your motivation.  Of course you deserve to be thin if that's what you want!  I think you are definitely on the right track to get your self esteem up to a healthy level while you tackle these goals.  Amazing work!

What a fantastic book! I have been very slowly working on my own self-esteem issues. Your "me scrapbook" is a great idea - hope you don't mind if I, ahem, borrow the general idea.

I hope you add to this throughout the years and keep reminding yourself how wonderful, talented, creative, artistic and inspirational you really are.
