My New Bracelet

Well, I'm back to counting Weight Watchers points (on day 5!) and so far so good. I thought about posting my weight loss goal on here, but decided that is too personal! :-) Suffice it to say- I have alot of pounds to lose. And if I am really good and don't give up counting points at the end of January like I did last year- I should reach my goal by the end of May! In the meantime, Weight Watchers sells bracelets that you can use for counting your points. You wear the bracelet all day and whenever you use points, you move the charm the same number of beads. This seems alot easier to me than keeping written logs as I have done in the past. And I decided I could definitely use my recently-acquired beading skills to make my own and save ALOT of money... below is the first one I came up with this morning. I used beads I had available (which wasn't many) and the only charm I had, which was a cross... which I think is a good thing because it will help me to remember who is really in control of my life.... and (hint hint) it's not FOOD. :-) I like the idea of having a few of these in different colors to match what I am wearing each day!

Hi Brenda - I popped over this morning from Kristy's blog. I love this new idea that WW is now doing. I hit my goal a couple years ago thru WW and haven't gone to any meetings in a long time - unfortunately, the scale shows it. I need to start counting my points again and I think this is a great way to do it! So handy, not to mention cute & fun!

You know what I realized a minute ago... the bracelet needs two charms, I think. One to count and one to mark your target for the day- so you can see how far you have to go, and (hopefully) how many points you have left. So- I am putting on another cross, this one is blue.

Thanks for stopping by, Tara! I haven't been to a meeting in a long time, either. I have more success on my own. But I know one thing... Weight Watchers works!

Neat idea, and I'm with you on the second charm. Good luck, and I hope that you obtain your goal. I know what a struggle weight problems are.

So pretty. So, how do you do this? How do you count points? Email me. I need to count something, besides how many times I open the refrigerator or pantry door!
