Get Your Friends Together For A Clothing Exchange Fashion Show & Party
Members Were Sparked
Get your friends together to have a potluck & champagne. Everyone brings their clothes/accessories and a dish or wine, then lets the girls rate how she looks in each outfit; only keeping the ones that make you feel fabulous about yourself. Exchange the rest, trying on outfits and doing your fashionable best. All left over clothes go to the local women's shelter. You get a new wardrobe without spending money, look amazing and feel great about donating to an awesome cause!
When you look good you feel good. When you feel good you can focus on your goals without those niggling feelings of self doubt rearing their obnoxious little heads. You want to feel even better so you drive hard ahead to make the Spark!

I have found two friends who really push me to be in better health. One, my neighbor helps me with food, we exchange recipes, have grill outs, or we SPLIT a bowl of ice cream after taking a walk around the neighborhood. The other friend is a runner. I like to hit the trail with her, even though she is much more advanced, we stretch together, begin and end together, and knowing she's there makes me want to work harder.
You can both cultivate closer friendships while reinforcing a healthy lifestyle.
instead of heading straight to goodwill with your clothes and other unwanted items, consider having a "naked ladies party". a group of friends get together and lay out their unwanted stuff, and then it's a free-for-all, claiming each other's things! good way to save some money on "new" clothes!
it's best to organize the items by category. i.e. jewelry on one table, shirts on a chair, pants on the couch, etc. there were a lot of nicer quality things there, and our party had clothes for all shapes and sizes. the remaining items get donated to goodwill.
Shop thrift stores, yard sales, garage sales, and consigment shops during your weightloss journey. You'll get great deals, a lot of places will have dollar bag days, fill a bag up for "x" amount of money. If you have friends in a similair boat, you can get together for a clothing swap. Gather the clothes you no longer wear, have friends do the same, and just swap! Great way to catch up, have fun, and recieve new to you clothing.
