Losing weight and getting new clothes can be expensive. So I go to consignment stores and even the Goodwill. I only buy new clothes as a reward when I have reached a big goal about once a month.
Free clothes are even better. My family and friends are going through their closet and what they do not wear anymore or can't wear anymore pass them down to me. I recycle them back to them when they lose their weight or give back to the goodwill.

Although they say not to compare my end gift to myself other than a brand new body is a new wardrobe from Victoria Secret. This is the reason that I signed up for daily emails showing me what's on sale, etc, to keep my mind on my end gift. A new body with new clothes.
For every pound I lose I put five $1 bills in a large shoe box. The more I lose, the bigger my pile gets and the more motivated I feel. Once I reach my weight goal, I plan to go on a shopping spree for a new (and hard-earned) wardrobe!!!
