Learn to love the body that you have now (something I still struggle with at times), not the body you want. You are no longer the same person you were before your healthy lifestyle journey, so why dress that way? Get clothing that fits you better, and it will help motivate you.

I have a sedentary job, so to compensate, I make sure to do something physical every two hours. On my morning break, I walk around the parking lot. At lunch, I take a walk around the mall. And on my afternoon break, I will walk up and down the steps for 5 to 10 minutes.
Not only does it do my body good, but having something to look forward to makes the day go by faster.
I have worked and am stilling very hard to learn who I am, and to define my value not by what I weigh and/or what I eat. Working to remove negative messages in my mind, and replace them with positives.
This has done so much for me, especially by keeping away the obsessive/compulsive behavior.
Love myself, and respect myself so much more for having been kind and generous to me.
