If I gain and don't fit into something, I tell myself I cannot go out and buy the bigger size - I make do with what I have until I can lose and fit into the smaller one. I just refuse to buy big - mandatory motivation!

The headache and heartache of buying clothes and what it does for your weight loss goals.
I just broke down and decided that I wasn't losing the weight like I had hoped and went and bought a new wardrobe. I feel more confident and after seeing all the clothes I want to wear, it promoted me to care about losing weight again.
Because I want instant weight loss, I weigh in first with all my clothes and coat on. Then I put down my purse. HA! 5 pound weight loss. Then off goes my coat. There goes some more!! Finally, there go the shoes (and if I'm wearing heavier clothing they go to). I get my instant gratification and feel good with my little psych out.
