When I have overeaten, for a week or so, and my clothes get uncomfortable, I have begun to remind myself that it will be a problem if I have to buy new clothes again! I have gotten rid of between sizes, and the discomfort of the clothes when I start to regain weight is a reminder of how unfomfortable I felt in my own skin over 100 pounds ago.
