A Filofax Moment - Vintage Pink Personal Malden

I have a new use for my VP Personal Malden.  I decided to use it for my Weight Watchers stuff.  First, I bought a 3 month tracking journal at my meeting then I used an exacto knife to cut it off of it's binding coil.  I punched holes so that I could put it in my binder.  I also made two clear pockets for stickers and an activity point cheat sheet.  I also made some corresponding indexes too (photo below). 
I'm using the A-Z indexes to keep track of the foods I usually eat the most of so that I can find them quickly and easily.  That way I don't always have to look them up all the time or figure out the points each time. 
So far it's working out really well and it's encouraging me to stay on track and that's always a good thing.

PS  ***Tracy mentioned that she loved the dividers *(thanks for your comment Tracy), I guess I should've shown them all, so here they are.  They were made from a paper pack called "Tattered Time" by Die Cuts With a View (DCWV).  Oh and the pen (medium point) was from Vera Bradley, who has excellent sales, very often.  Check them out:  Vera Bradley Website

Silly question, what kind of point does the VB pen have? Medium? Fine?
I love her pen designs but love fine point pens more ;)

Hey Romina, I believe that the Vera Bradley pen is a medium point, it's really on the sturdy size, meaning that it has a nice weight to it. I love writing with it. (By the way, I Can't wait for you to put your first post on your blog!) LOL)
