So, I posted a short Non-Scale Victories video, on YouTube, a little while ago, after spending about five hours on cloud nine. It all started when I pulled out a cute little anklet I adore. It’s one I purchased from Wal-Mart, probably set me back a whole $1.07, but I love it like it had been gifted to me in one of those blue Tiffany and Co boxes.
I tend to love most 99 cent things that way… J!
So, I decided I wanted to wear it. When I went to put it on, I noticed that the extender I’d used when I’d worn it in the past wasn’t attached to it. So, I proceeded to hunt that bad boy down like a bloodhound. I gave up after about 20 minutes and decided wearing it just wasn’t in the cards. Well, right after that, I got this strange notion to try it on. I figured, why not, what’s the worst that could happen?
Well, the answer was nothing at all because the darn thing fit. I hooked the clasp into the second to the last loop and screamed like a banshee. It was friggin’ on!!!
I wanted to cry and shout like the Holy Ghost had snuck up on me like a Long Island Iced Tea, but didn’t. The truth is, I probably would have discovered that I could wear the thing weeks ago if I’d just tried. That’s the funny thing about this weight loss journey, it’s opened my eyes to just how much I’ve avoided achievements by trying to avoid disappointments. The anklet had been in its place for months, waiting for today. A day when I’d see it for what it was—a simple anklet—and what it wasn’t—a disappointment.
I love you anklet!!!
