I never found any particular clothing to be motivational, but then, the clothes that I buy are multi-functional to get the most out of my very limited finances.

In some ways having appropriate and comfortable clothing for the activity that you are doing can help. There is a reason that most people crossing the finish line of a marathon do so in running shoes and not stilettos. So having attire that works for the activity that you want to do and your body can make actually doing the activity less of a chore. I mean, if your shorts chafe you then you aren't going to want to spend much time doing anything in those shorts. You might love your Sparkle Skirt, but it's unlikely to be the only reason you go out for a walk. You have to find something that you at least don't mind doing and work it in in a way that fits your schedule. Motivation isn't one divine inspiration that suddenly changes everything. You have to build the value in what you want to do and change a lot of the little bits of infrastructure in your life to accommodate doing the new thing rather than the old thing. Cute leggings might be a part of that, but they are not an end all, be all reason.

-google first. ask questions later.

I love cute workout clothes with fun patterns and colors! Makes me feel proud when I walk into the gym.

I don't mind working out in heavy clothes, but my wife got me a light weight thermal jacket to help fend off the cold. The jacket reminds me of those used by the star trek crew. I love it. Mr Owl

Absolutely! If I'm dressed to workout/walk, I will do it, otherwise I might use that as an excuse not to because I'm not dressed for it.

I always wear black pants and a gray shirt. But my shoes are another story.

Yup - my workout is hiking, and just putting on my boots (Danners) and pants (Merrill) and pack always has me in a good mood... Not stylish or trendy, but practical and apparently will last forever (got a few thousand miles on the boots so far, and they're just about broken in).

buying NEW workout attire helps motivate me :D as my body image improves and i feel stronger, i do find more joy in wearing brighter workout gear, but i don't find it in and of itself motivating.

Healthy choices and actions have positive impacts, even if the scale doesn't move!


Next goal: -38-40 by 10/18

Hi! :) I saw your other post on the Spark Cafe thread. I run races regularly and LOVE to wear crazy pants. I have some fun ones from Fila. Running Funky has some great fabrics, too. I have a couple of pairs and they have held up well.
