It's obvious. It's common sense. It's really true. Clothes make the person.
When I wear a baggy pair of pants and a baggy t-shirt I feel frumpy and invisible. I lack confidence. I go in and out of my cubicle and don't stop to socialize with coworkers.
When I wear a tighter pair of pants and tuck in my shirt I feel confident and attractive. I look for people to talk to when I'm up getting a glass of water or coming back from the ladies room or whatever.
I do catch myself in the mirror and realize I still have a long way to go. That shirt is tucked in but that fat is still there, however I still feel better about myself somehow. I remind myself of who I was 20 years ago when I weighed 20 pounds less than I do now. I was still overweight then, but I was single and confident and the weight didn't bother me the way it does now.
So tuck it in, suck it in, pull yourself together... it's obvious. The better I look, the better I feel, and the more motivated I am to keep myself on track!
