Motivational Monday: Buy a Goal Outfit
First I must share that I lost TWO Pounds this past week. So I am super Excited! This was definitely a good weigh-in and my spirits are up. So I decided to write this post about choosing a goal outfit. I myself love to shop, so I constantly find myself buying clothes and most of the time when they are on sale I might buy something in a size smaller as an incentive to lose more weight.
Last week I was actually able to fit into a dress that I purchased a year ago. It was such a great feeling to fit into the dress and be able to breathe. More importantly it showed me that I was losing inches although the numbers on the scale have not been moving as much as I would like. Many times we become obsessed with the scale and forget to notice small changes in our body. I am beginning to see the changes in the way my clothes fit and it is such a great feeling. Of course I want the scale to move soon, and I need it to start going down for health reasons, but I like that my jeans are becoming loser.
So the next time you are out in the mall and see a cute outfit that you fall in love with, buy it in a smaller size and keep it in sight, and use it as an incentive to lose weight to fit into it.
