What more motivation can a girl need!!


Silver Member
As most of you know from my treads, yesterday was a horrible day and was really hard for me. My good old nan asked me to go shopping with her today to get me out the house and forget about food... and so we went.

We was walking around nosing in all the shops and we ended up in a Pandora shop that has just opened in the Metro Centre. We stood for about 20mins looking at all the different charms and picking out the gorgeous ones and how beautiful they all where, every design was different with lovely sparkling gem stones and pearls. My nan asked the woman over and asked her what size bracelet would fit me. The bracelets are £55 and thats just for the bracelet without the charms so when my nan said she was getting me a bracelet i told her ''NO WAY''!!

She told me SHE WAS getting me a bracelet to start me off :eek: and now that i am working i could get myself a charm everytime i lose 1 stone!! I cant believe it!! How lovely is my nanna.

Now i really cant wait to lose a stone so i can have a pandora charm on my pandora bracelet hehe! The more stones i lose the more charms i will have. Everytime i look at the charm bracelet i will see how well i have done and how far i have come.

I wont want to cheat on this diet as i will want to lose another stone for another charm haha! :p What more motivation can a girl want eh!! Andreas also said he can get me a few charms when he thinks i have done well on the diet hehe yay!!

Hope you all had a nice day <3 xxx

I have a normal charm bracelet that I'm adding a charm to for every half stone. I didn't want to invest in a Pandora until I know what size to get as my wrists will shrink.

You have a lovely Nan - wanna share her?

Ahhh what a lovely idea from your nan, that's really good - be lovely when your bracelet is full of charms....... though here's the bit that I've got to admit that I've never seen a Pandora bracelet so I'm going to do a google later :)

What a fantastic idea Tasha, not only does it motivate you to keep on earning the charms, but when you're at goal it's a reminder of how far you've come. You're so lucky to have such a clever and caring gran :D

Steve has said that he'll treat me to something for every stone I lose cos he knows how desperate I am to lose weight. I had thought of pamper treatments, but perhaps I get him to take me to Meadowhall and we look for a more lasting reminder.

How you feeling today hun? x

I've had a good day too thanks Tasha. I was a bit worried after the Chinese incident yesterday (all explained on my day 6 update post) that I wouldn't get back on track, but I've found it totally the opposite :D

There's a new Pandora shop at Meadowhall, so it would be an idea to detour Steve in there when he gets home wouldn't it lol? ;) It's soon Valentines Day isn't it, perhaps we can go get the bracelet then to start the collection. Hmmm, now you've got me thinking :D
