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.


  1. congrats on the weight loss! great job!

    that is what i should have done when i went shopping a few weekends ago ... i will keep it in mind to buy some smaller sized outfits for motivation to fit into them!
