I loved choosing this necklace mostly because it was kind of, not really, like my name. L-O for love and Lori, I've always wanted a necklace with my name, so this 'love' necklace seemed to be the perfect purchase.
Until it arrived.
It was too small. "What?" you say? Yes, it choked me. I was sad, I wanted to wear it but it looked so stupid. The word 'love' poked out of my neck like a plank on a ship. It looked like I had a spatula coming out of my throat. I wrestled with getting the thing off my neck, because....it was too tight.
Sometime early 2011, I put the necklace back on and it was tolerable. Then it became more and more comfortable. I realized during a really intense run or workout, the necklace would slowly turn so that the 'love' would end up at the back of my neck. I liked coming home and discovering 'love' was in the wrong place, but I always slipped it back to the front.
And now, I always wear my 'love' necklace. It reminds me of my progress and cheers me on. It tells me to never have a fat neck again, it signifies when I've had a workout and more than anything? It fits.
