Day Four: I am grateful to God for giving me the strength and will power to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:Ecclesiastes 3 NKJV

The time for me to make a lifestyle change and loose wait started late May.  Today, I am grateful of the changes since the "after" photo was taken mid October. 
The pocket holds two grocery receipts from November 4th, along with lots of journaling.  The oversized pocket is from the Plenty-o-Pockets collection (was offered free a couple of months ago) by Designs On Cloud 9.  Heads up, you'll be seeing lots of pockets on my pages.
The pattern papers are from two collections; Echo Park's Note to Self and Pink Paislee's Vintage Vogue.

I tried to capture the embossing, I assure you it looks better in person. :)  I used several of Latina Crafter stamps:  The postage stamp is the Retro set.  The "hoy" which means "today" is from La vida es.  The sentiment from Dando Gracias, translation I thank God for His blessings.

I created my title, It's was Time, with  Outline "ABC" stamp set.  The Polaroid camera from SonrieI also used washi tape that you find in Latin Crafter's shop.
