To keep yourself motivated, take that one before picture, and everytime you drop a size (shirt or pants) take a picture (fully clothed). And in the end take a picture with the before pants and the after.
In order to remember what part of my midsection that I measured as my waist, I started taking pics of the exact locations of my body parts. Given that my body has lots of curves and rolls in the wrong places, taking measurements was very hard! Where is a waist on a 250+ woman with rolls on top of rolls? By taking pics of what I considered my waist at the time of my measurements, I figured out how to make monthly comparisons. Little things like this make a BIG difference with motivation!!
