Sparkly emeralds

Post by ~reneew » Wed Jun 03, 2009 7:12 pm

Many of us were discussing emeralds on Vigilant's check in. I think it was Mimi and Thalia who suggested it... Wouldn't a sparkly new emerald look great on your finger? It could be for a reward and a reminder to keep your habitcal green! I personally think I'll get one when I get to half way and use it as a visual reward! :mrgreen:

Funny you should be the one to post on here Marc... we were lobbying trying to find someone to buy us all sparkly green emeralds! Your name came up. :wink:

I prefer white gold please, and make it big.

Oh, and I drive a big ol' Suburban... I'd like some fast sporty thing with a metalic touch. Maybe spinny hubs.

Yea, Vigilant and I have just started doing weekly rewards for keeping our habits green! She has earned a bicycle and some accessories already. I bought a cute little pair of sandals this past weekend for my green behavior and posted about how motivating it was to glance down at my feet during the day - a visual reminder to keep going.
Well, Thalia, brilliant as she is, suggested gettingGREEN jewelry - emeralds or jade - as a visual motivator.
Next thing I know, Vigilant is visualizing a sparkly emerald ring on her finger as a No-S milestone marker, like say for a one year No S anniversary - a reward for something really special. I thought about maybe for Christmas (partly because I wouldn't have to buy it for myself!) marking 8 months of NoS.
So now...here we all are...setting our sights on emerald rings! Brilliant! Can't wait! What an awesome thing to work for!
Anyone else want to join in the fun of working for green jewelry?

Oh yeah, Marc needs a second job. I'm thinking of emeralds like Angelina Jolie on Oscar night.

And the guys can get, um ... green socks? You could probably get a green iPhone or something, couldn't you?

Oh... I just remembered that my daughter has green sparkly fingernail polish. :wink:

Maybe I should just get green flip flops.

Hmmmm I'm not much for jewelry these days.. Massage made my wrists and fingers too sensitive to wear my old beloved silver rings, and I don't even wear pendants or stuff, like I used to, around my neck, cos I don't like the feeling of anything on my neck..

But it's a great idea to reward yourself!

How about each time I lose 7 lbs I buy myself a small houseplant???
That's green!
By the time I get to my goal, I'll have a very nice assortment of plants!

That's a great idea too! And look how much healthier your living environment will be with all those plants *breathing* with you!

Seriously, the reward idea Vigilant and I are using has really been helping me...just a little something to work for each week. The first week we did it, I bought flowers - all my flowers for outside the house. Now I go out each evening and water them instead of sitting inside and eating! :wink:

Talk to ya soon!

Oh... and earings. I could think up a very long list of green things to reward myself. My birthday is St. Patrick's day, so I love green things.

I dunno guys... It seems a little unfair to just offer to get Marc some green socks when he's got to go out and get a second job to afford all these emeralds!!!!
LOL
What about a green racing suit to go with it for his bike rides????
Then he could be "The green extreme riding machine!!!"

Green flip flops, yeah !! ... and I'd wear 'em with white socks on of course, kickin' it old school, Like in the 80's. ;-)

It's a good idea to reward yourself when you achieve something great ... not with bad food of course, you can get something healthy that you wouldn't normally have ...
like lobster, shrimps, etc.

I've been doing that too, a restaurant nearby makes awesome chicken breast salads. I've ordered some a few times already, maybe once a month, as a special treat.

They are awesome, delicious and good for me too, I sprinkle the salad dressing myself so I know not to put too much on there. Great dinner then I have a couple of my beers, a glass of wine, sitting back, taking off my GREEN FLIP FLOPS and watching a movie ... ;-)

Cheers !

Marc ;-)

Oh yeah Renee...that's it!

And Debs...we'd better hold out on the jade...my son travels to China for work (although he just got back recently, so won't be going again for awhile :cry: ) and brought a beautiful piece of jade jewelry back for his grandmother that cost a *fraction* of what it would here.
Maybe I can take orders and send him on a shopping mission next time he goes! :wink:

You guys are crazy! :lol: Some people would think we didn't have enough to do!!

MMmmm, emeralds, jade, maybe peridot for any August birthdays out there...plants...flip flops. You guys are brilliant! Here's some other options in terms of jewelry:

I think I'm really really really gonna do this! And Mimi I do hope you get yours for Christmas!

In the meantime, anyone that wants to join in as far as tracking/discussing/celebrating the weekly rewards system, please feel free. We can even make a thread on here just for that purpose.

Ha! We think alike, Shamrockmommy! I dug through my jewelry last night looking for a green ring (when my husband came into the bedroom and found the bed covered in stuff, he thought I was losing it :lol: )... BUT I found one and am wearing it today!
Not an emerald, but malachite - and doing the job today!

I love the idea, but Emeralds might be the wrong level of granularity for beginners. Seems like it would take a LOT of compliance to get to that level. Ditto a car.

Fortunately, cash is also green.

We need some moderation [no] sugar daddy to pay a dollar for each day of compliance.

Perhaps financed by us paying him back 3 for every failure (new meaning to the phrase "in the red").

I think he might end up looking a lot like a jolly Saint Patrick's Day bookie though. Or at least, in my case. And he might want to break my legs after a while. :oops:

Here in Denmark there is a kind of charm bracelet where one buys different beads to put on the bracelet. The one I have is made by Pandora. Does the same thing exist in the USA?
This Friday I'll be buying myself a green bead as a reward for being a 3X repeater to the 21 Day Club. They have a lot of charms with green stones that I plan to buy for myself as I reach personal goals in No S. It's cheaper than buying emeralds...

Have fun shopping - being snowed in like we've been increases online shopping! Just dug out from under two feet of snow and we have another 6-12" coming tomorrow...we may get back to school one of these days...

Bumping this thread because I think that it's a great idea to reward ourselves with something GREEN and sparkly! If not a ring, then maybe a charm bracelet? Green ear-rings?Green beaded necklace?

WHEN I reach my goal my wedding ring will be much too big. As DH and I were dirt poor when we married, my ring is steel and can't be made smaller. I'll get an emerald solitaire in my new smaller size to keep my wedding ring on.
Nothing is impossible-only improbable.

I'm still working for that emerald ring!
I guess this doesn't work unless you actually do it.
Please pray for me

Hum, an emerald ring, that's worth a lot of EFFORT ... for now I think a lot of people should settle for sparkling lime green DIET JELLO instead. 69 cents for a whole box, wow. Great treat, few cals ! :-) I can add a bit of kiwi fruit chunks in there if I need more GREEN STUFF, hah.

Remember you have to be persistent, losing weight takes a loooooong time, gaining weight can take 2 minutes if you lose your cool eating a big tub of ice cream and cookies at lightning speed. That's why it's so crucial to focus on the big picture, not to be good the whole week and then give up on the weekends. Definitely requires a lot of discipline and it's a tough thing to do long term with all the junk food temptations around and the fact it's so much easier not to exercise and take it easy instead.

Cheers !
