My new motivational tool

Thursday, June 18, 2009

I've decided that instead of picking a date some time in the future to buy the size jeans I want to eventually fit in, I'm going to go ahead and buy them now. I'll try them on every Saturday to measure my progress (since I hate the scale). Since I don't have a lot of money to spend on clothes, this should really keep my motivation up. I know that when I was thin, as soon as my jeans started to feel a little bit tight I would just back off my food. I would love to eventually fit back into a pair of Levi 501s. I know that after the first of the year when my T-shirts stopped fitting, I found SparkPeople and started working out again. I've made progress (not as much as I'd hoped, but at least its progress), but I think this will really help me.

    Good idea, Terri! It's always good to have other measures of success other than the scale. We all know how obstinate that thing can be!

    That's a good approach! I hope it works for you. I believe that size is more important than the number on the scale too. I never even owned a scale until I reached a size 18! When I purchased that darn scale and saw the numbers I almost threw up!! Good luck. I know you can do this!

    How fantastic is that, I know the scale can send me crazy yet I have always placed so much faith in it. Silly is it.

    Oh that's awesome! I had bought a pair, too, but I never thought about trying them on once a week! I'm going to try this idea, and thanks for the motivation!! Good luck!
