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!
