My Charm Bracelet for my 100 pounds lost reward

Monday, April 02, 2012

Thanks to my good friend Jacqueline's (JANDK156) suggestion I bought myself a reward.
I found a charm bracelet. I love this idea. Many others have used charms to reward themselves.

I also had one as a child and I pulled it out. It brought back great memories. I even took 2 of those charms and added to my new one.

Here is a little about each charm:

The K is my initial

The shoe is a charm from my childhood one. I remember I got it cause I ran around a lot. Since I love running now it is just perfect!

The watch face came with the bracelet.

The 100 I made myself with supplies from Hobby Lobby. Signifies my 100 pounds lost

The whistle (works) was a charm from my childhood bracelet. I remember loving that charm. I bet I annoyed my parents a lot with that!!

I have plans for another charm. A scale with the number 100 on it.

Future rewards will be charms to represent my 2 children, hubby and my likes and dislikes!

    Great idea! I have my childhood charm bracelet as well as my mom's. And my daughter has one too. I'm going to look for a whistle for hers since she is a drum major in our marching band...I wonder if I'll find one?

My favorite charm as a child was a tiny Bible with the Lord's Prayer printed inside in miniscule letters. It was really too small to read but I was fascinated with it and played with it so much during church that the prayer is now worn off!

    Beautiful charm. I wouldn't be able to begin to make that. 100 lbs.That is so awesome. You are doing great! I can't wait to get a "real" bike for my final goal of 70 lbs. I am looking forward to a tennis lesson when I get to "normal" BMI. Only 7 more pounds. Let's keep losing. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    WOW, what an AWESOME idea!! I keep trying to come up with rewards that I actually can work towards since I have a habit of getting them before the goal is complete...this is wonderful!

    Yes I can change the number when I hit another goal. Plus those are inexpensive numbers so I can switch them around. :)

    You already showed me the charms you were adding (and subtracting) but the charm you made is lovely! It also looks like you could change that number for when you hit goal, too, yes? emoticon emoticon
