Charms: 25lb and 30lb

My 25 lb charm finally arrived in the mail today. I also received a very special charm from my husband which has become my 30 lb charm. I've already added them to my milestone bracelet and my husband was kind enough to take a photo:

As with my other charms, these have meanings, too:
  • Starfish (25 lbs): The starfish is a symbol of rebirth and regeneration. We can regrow what was once missing, make new what was once incomplete. Starfish are also said to be reflections of the stars in the sky. By our actions today, we reflect what we are becoming. Stronger, prouder, and healthier. A true rebirth.
  • Heart (30 lbs): A special charm that reminds me that though I have fought hard, I still wouldn't be where I am today without the love and support of my husband. He has been with me every step of the way. Who praises me, loves me, and supports me without complaint or condition? That would be my very dear husband. Thank you, my love. You truly are my strength.
I have an idea of what my next charm will be, but first I've got to lose that next 5 lbs!

That is a great idea, a charm for each milestone of your journey!

that is AWESOME. as someone who doesn't attend meeting, that would have been the perfect idea to reward myself with at every milestone.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. It's a lot of fun choosing the charms and then seeing it on my wrist. It's a constant reminder of how far I've come!

All but one of my charms came from Friends Forever Charms:


I ordered from them because they're a Canadian company. Shipping can be a little slow though but then I always choose the cheapest option.

And the heart charm came from the Bay!
