Buggy Bracelet Diet

I'm okay with being a big girl. After all, I've been one all my life. I don't aspire to be model skinny, but what I'm not okay with is being a bigger girl, big enough that my jeans don't fit. I don't want to go out and buy new clothes. So, drawing on my successful experience at 10 years old when I wore an elastic around my hand and snapped it whenever I caught myself biting my nails, I dug around for the most annoying bracelets I own and put them on. The plan is that when I lose an inch from my waist, I'll remove a bracelet. When I lose another inch, I'll remove another bracelet, and so on, until my arms are free and clear, and my jeans are zippable.
Goodness gracious, it's hard to type with all this hardware on my wrists. One bracelet is so annoying that its dangling snowflakes and snowdrops catch in my hair and snag my clothes. So I'm wondering, should I take that one off first? Or should I save it until last for added motivation?
