Have you ever seen the movie Pollyanna? I remember reading it as a child in a Disney book. I read a lot as a child. Not so much as an adult. I remember in the book Pollyanna discovered that crystals in the window would fill the room with rainbows. I believe she becomes ill in the movie and they fill the window with crystals and show her all the rainbows. Again, I was a small child so I am now going to have to read the book again or see if netflix has it so that I can watch the movie.
So I decided that as I lose weight I would put a crystal suncatcher in the window for every 5 lbs that I lost. Right now I have put 3 in the window. First I put them in my dining room window. It could not catch enough light so I put them in the Living room window. This afternoon the light caught them and my cat was going crazy with all of the rainbows on the wall. At first I thought that the crystals would all be clear. I went on Etsy and found many different sizes and colors. I ordered one that will be delivered on Tuesday. It is a crystal clear heart and the chain that it is hanging on has several red hearts. I just loved it. I look forward to finding unique suncatchers to fill my window. Two more lbs and I will put another one up.
Yesterday I was so unhappy. Really feeling fat. That darkness passed. I was proud that I turned it around. Today I was holding the sweet little baby that I watch and thought for a minute. Marcus weighs 18 lbs. I have lost a whole Marcus off my body. Cant help but to be pleased when I think of it that way! How can I be discouraged by that weight loss?

Update: I did watch Pollyanna on Amazon Prime. She puts crystals in someone else's window. I lost 1 lb this week to reach 19 lbs. The new crystal I ordered will not be in until next week. Of course you know that my goal will be to lose 1 lb next week so that I can hang this up ASAP!

    Awesome!!! I saw it when I was a kid we checked out the VHS from the Library! LOL I barely remember it too. I love the hanging crystals idea! I have crystal knobs on my kitchen cabinets and in the morning they reflect little rainbows all over too! Those dark moments always pass especially when we realize things like what you just did with that cutie weighing what you lost! It reminds me of the quote about not looking at how far you have to go but on how far you've already come!

    My old dog would go cray with the rainbows or prizms moving.
    But i think that is a great idea.
    And to be able to hold a baby is awesome too.
