Diet Motivation Journal Pages

I made this two page spread using the lyrics to the song "You can get it if you really want" which I seem to have singing in my head at the moment.

It's a good song about any goal you may be wishing to achieve, not just dieting.

It goes:
"You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
But you must try, try and try, try and try
Try and try, you'll succeed at last."

On the left hand page I used some magazine images that were taken from perfume adverts:
(years old, I found them in my images stash)

And on the right, I printed out the lyrics using the computer and used magazine images and a real tape measure to embellish:
  I then used a watercolour crayon with a water pen to make a wash for the background.

Here are some of the other words that also ring true when trying to lose weight: 

"Rome was not build in a day
Opposition will come your way
But the hotter the battle you see
it's the sweeter the victory.."

EDITED TO ADD THE YOUTUBE VIDEO OF THIS SONG:
'You can Get It If You Really Want' by Jimmy Cliff


I don't have lots to lose, but I've got a 40th Birthday party to go to next month so would like, if possible, to fit into a dress that I have just a little less snuggly than I do now...

Thanks for looking and for any comments,
Nicky

I've lost about 3lb this week but it's due to some horrible bug, I don't recommend it as a weight loss.

I have loads to lose as in stones not lbs - hoping to get a lot of it off by August but wont say more than that at mo ;)

Love your new profile piccy and good luck with the goal!
