Pandora

Well ladies (and gentlemen), I have officially been sucked in! After MANY months of denying Pandora from entering my heart, I am now obsessed.

About three weeks ago I discussed the possibility, with my husband, of purchasing a bracelet as a "reward system" for me. What I mean by that is, for every 10 pounds I lose, I get to buy a new charm/bead. AND, since I have already lost 65 pounds, I get to start off with 6 beads!

"Isn't being healthy enough!?"

Yes, of course! But, I loved the idea of visually seeing where I came from and where I NEVER want to go back!

He okay-ed my purchase once he bought his new BMW M3!!! So, since we are financially destitute, might as well buy a bracelet! ;)

5 more pounds and I get to add one more.

So, for your viewing pleasure, here is my current masterpiece! :)

I bought one last Jan. for a birthday gift to me from my BF lol :) He did pick out a bead :) Very addictive- especially if you live by a store that has a GREAT selection within WALKING DISTANCE! lol :)

I have had one for years. Great bracelets. I have the stitch/sewing charm to represent my Lapband. :) Great to have rewards!

Men just don't get it. But I'm glad he agreed. I have to get me a replacement bracelet that is my most inspiration.

Keep it up!

That is just a great idea: to have a little reminder of all your progress on your wrist. I love it.
