West African culture when a baby girl is born 1 string of beads are attached to her waist. As she grows every few months the beads will eventually break off of her waist and will be replaced with a bigger string of beads. This cycle is continued until the babygirl reaches old age. Yes, you read right — even my grandmother still has her beads. The meaning behind the beads is to give the babygirl a nice shape as she grows. Ever notice how African women are shaped and proportioned so well no matter how big or small we are? That’s the secret behind it. As the girl grows into a woman the waistbeads stop the food she eats from fattening her waist, making it all go to her butt, breast and thighs. The more she eats, the beads will eventually break evening out and proportioning your body smoothly. and it’ll be time for a new pair. This ancient method is our great way of keeping track of and controlling your weight gain/loss. If you wanna lose weight, attach the beads and exercise/diet and you’ll notice the changes/progress in your body faster when the beads become looser and looser. If you wanna gain weight, attach the beads and eat/exercise and you’ll notice the changes/progress in your body as the beads become tighter and tighter and eventually break.
