Another charm added to the charm bracelet of loss--finally!

Monday, October 25, 2010



Last year's pumpkin, this year I'm not carving, just using gourds and soup pumpkins.

SO, finally! another charm added to the bracelet of loss today. That's another kilo gone, a really hard won kilo, although I'm certain I have added muscle weight as well as lost fat since becoming a gym rat.

Today's charm, a solid silver cat, an expensive one, the next one or two will need to be more modest.

The near constant reminder of wearing the charm bracelet of loss and seeing the progress in silver charms remains a good idea for me. I'm not quite half way around the bracelet yet. When I get there, I think I will have the right to a really special charm. The total of links on the bracelet represent the big goal, anything more is just icing on the cake.

I'm finally back to the point where I was before the year of injury. Not easy to come back from that, but now it is mostly in the past and it's time to move forward, slowly, as that seems to be how it is working out. No quick, giant losses for me. I think I'm doing everything right and I'm just plodding along.

I can't wait to report this one on Friday in the challenge I'm in, finally a bit of forward progress!

And now I get to dream about the next charm for the next kilo--- I saw a tiny barbell, might be a contender!

    A barbell charm! If you can't find one, ask your jewellery store to see if there is one they can bring in. That would be so cool to have hanging on your bracelet.

    What a great idea - a barbell!! I'll keep my eyes open!! I used to be a member of TOPS and they issued charms and pins etc, some of which I still have. But many of their charms were just cloisonne enameled pictures of some random graphic and didn't mean anything to me. Plus...I don't look good in silver (have yellow skin tones) so I never could decide when to buy another charm? like every 5 pounds? 10 pounds (sorry, not sure how those are in kilos... I would make a terrible French woman, in terms of the metric system. The wine, cheese & chocolate I can handle just fine, thank you. hah.). I've seen charms like with sneakers or with high heels.
