Today the theme wasn't really something I could be in the photo for so while we were out taking the photo we found this almost 200 year old bell tower in Salisbury. It was awesome!
Today's theme was "Lollypop". I got this at the dollar store and I didn't realise until I got it unwrapped that I saw it was broken in half and it fell apart after about 5 shots. Luckily I got 1 I liked.
Today's theme was "Marriage". I don't have anything from our wedding other than my rings so that's what I used.
No theme today
Today's theme was "Desk Love". So this is my desk.
Today's theme was "Clocks". These are all the time zones I keep up with for all my friends and family around the world.
Today's theme was "Donuts". Pretty self explanatory this one!

I kind of fell off the wagon. BIG TIME. I have been eating crap and not counting points at all. And the scales here at home are reflecting a gain of about 5 pounds in the past 3 weeks. I don't know for sure because I haven't been to a meeting in 3 weeks.
I am so disgusted and ashamed with myself. I lost 65lb. I worked so hard over the past year and now I am throwing all that work away.
It started with Billy being home on vacation. I eat when he is home. I don't know why. Happiness? I have never been an emotional eater. When I am upset or angry I don't eat. Stress makes me nauseous so I can't eat when I feel that way. But when I am happy I am always so hungry. So I have been eating and eating like a crazy person.
I swore I would get back on track this week, then I got tonsillitis and felt like crud all week so preparing healthy food was too much. So again, eating crap.
Today I am back on track though. Only eating good food and tracking everything. It's hard. It's like the beginning again. I am so hungry.
I can fix this though. I just have to get my mind back into it. I am not going to destroy all my hard work.

Well let me tell you how it all began for me and why I decided to do it.
Many years ago I made an online friend by the name of Donna (Hi Donna :D ). Well one day my lovely friend started posting self portraits on her blog and kept referring to this 365 Days project and Flickr. So as a curious person I decided to check it out.
What I found out was there was a huge community of people on Flickr in many different groups participating in this project. Some people did self portraits, others took photos of all different kinds of things. But the basic idea was to take a photo every day for 1 year. There are many people I know how are into their 7th year of the project. There are also many different groups that like to put a "spin" on the portraits by posting themes chosen by members.
Now as first I was terrified of partaking such a huge thing like this. For a few reasons.
- I absolutely LOATHED my photo being taken. I was overweight at the time and had very low self esteem.
- I didn't really know how to use my camera. I was blown away by the quality and talent of the people I saw on Flickr and just knew I couldn't come close to them.
- I really didn't think I could be creative.
