Wear The Right Size Clothes In Flattering Colors

This Sparked Me!

Wear clothes that are becoming, no matter what size you are. Choose colors that compliment you and features that hide flaws and highlight assets. Don't stuff yourself into too small clothes. As you lose, chose more fitted clothes that will help you gauge your progress and motivate you to keep the weight and inches off. At some point, a belt will become an accessory!

Looking "well put together" improves your career opportunities and will boost your self image. Gradually move from drawstrings to zippers.

    I, too, am getting rid of the big "fat" clothes, donating to charity. Some of them I had trouble parting with...remembering how comfy they were. I thought...what if I put the weight back on and want to wear it? Then I said to are NOT going to regain the weight. I believed myself and let go of the bigger clothes. emoticon

    I think this is a great motivator. This time, as I'm losing weight, I'm getting rid of the clothes that are too big and buying some that fit. I'm not spending a lot, so I don't have as big a wardrobe as I usually do, because I'm going to lose more but it makes a big difference in how I see and feel about myself. I can really see the progress I've made.

    So true! I hadn't done laundry the other day, and had to wear some old, baggy clothes. I looked so much bigger than I am!
