Hung Up Some Inspiration

Friday, February 01, 2013

Earlier this week I talked about a pair of jean shorts that I want to be able to wear. They are brand new. When I first bought them they were on sale and I was a size 18. They are a size 17/18 so I figured they would fit. Boy was I wrong.

Since then I have gained a lot more weight (size 20/22 now) and the shorts stayed hidden in the bottom drawer of my dresser. I gave up on them a long time ago. Since starting my healthy lifestyle, I remembered the shorts and decided that I will make it a goal to finally be able to wear them.

So last night I took two push pins and hung them up on my bedroom wall right next to my mirror. The tag is still on them and I made sure the size part of it is visible. Now I am forced to look at them every day. I sure hope this helps my motivation.

I'm almost ready to put together my vision board so hopefully between it and the shorts, they will work well together as a motivation team. emoticon

    Thanks everyone! I am so excited about this goal. And so far my reminder is working. I see them everyday and it gives me that extra push I need to get through my day.

    That is an awesome idea! I am going to steal it from you! I have a pair of jeans that are hanging in my closet that are about two sizes too small that I am working to get into. I also have a pair from when I was 18 years old that is my ultimate goal to fit into. You will be fitting into those shorts soon! Thank you for the motivation.

    Great idea!! You are going to get there!!! Each day is all you have to think about. Then those days will add up and before you know it...These shorts will be on their way out of your closet because you'll be in even a smaller size!
