Often we have some dream dresses we hope to wear when we lose those 20-30pounds. Start wearing that skirt, tank top, jeans, that you dont think looks so good on you right now ( in current size, not a size too small for now). That serves as a strong motivator. You will want to lose that weight fast to be able to wear those more comfortably. Its becomes a strong visual aide and a goal. Later, you will be buying the same clothing in a much smaller size!
