I can't believe how much good one bracelet has done me. I made my own calorie tracking bracelet after hearing about the Weight watcher bracelets.

http://www.storesonline.com/site/bracelets

I've lost 4 lb since I've been keeping to a diet and I just can't believe how easy it's been. I'm not usually a calorie counter, but it's easy to total up the day's calories/exercise because it's right there. I'm very very pleased right now. ^_^

Does anyone else have one?

That's a pretty neat idea! Like a dieter's rosary. I've been tracking my calories on these little daily meal sheets for about a month, so I've got a pretty good idea of how many calories are in the foods I eat. Still, I think bracelets like these are a great idea, especially if they become recognizably popular, like an icon worn by people who strive for better health and wellness. Inspiration and fashion all in one!

Wow, that's pretty! I really like the natural-cut gems (must be the geologist in me). Now I wanna make my own!

Just had to make my own! Glass beads, wire & abalone.




The full 30-bead bracelet was too big (gotta get smaller beads) so this one only has 20 beads...less food for me, I guess.

Mine is made of stuff found around the house, some cell phone charm holders, twine, clips etc. Later i will put it on wire but for now i think it looks pretty good

Awesome, Tiffany! I really like the dark beads. For just grabbing stuff around the house it turned out to be a really nice bracelet!

Very nice both of you! It's just ... ah! I love the bracelet idea, something you make on your own is also personalized to you and carries your feelings best I've always thought.

after every 4 beads put a big bead or a different color one. That measure up to 500 calories. Then you do that up to 3,000 calories if you have a big wrist or up to 2,500 which would be 25 beads i think. Then you have the clippy charms so that you can move one up the scale and down for calories and one for cups of water.

Thanks Amie and Bat Bates! It didn't take too long to make either. About an hour because i had to search for everything.
