Most people use buying clothes a couple of sizes smaller than their current size, as motivation to lose weight. Sadly this rarely works, and the person is stuck with clothes they can’t fit. I can’t tell you how many pair of jeans I gave away, because I gave up on ever trying to fit in them. So with that method usually failing people, you know I’m not going to tell you to use it.
Here are two sure fire weight loss motivation techniques
1. Buy an outfit that is one or two sizes smaller than your current size. Make sure it is absolutely gorgeous! Also, Buy an outfit that currently fits your perfectly, but is absolutely hideous! Something you wouldn’t want to be caught dead wearing. Then set a weight loss goal along with a realistic deadline, and event (friend’s birthday, baby shower, club night, etc.) By the realistic date, if you can still fit into that hideous outfit, guess who’s going to be sporting it to that event? YOU ^_^! If you can fit into the smaller outfit, the prettiest girl in the place is going to be YOU! It’s fun and easier if you have a friend do it with you, so try it!
2. Put something you really want, on layaway. Yes I said layaway! Put an item on layaway and make a commitment that you can only make payments every time you reach a short term goal. This short term goal should coincide with your long term weight loss goal. Example: You put a $700 purse on layaway. You have along term weight loss goal of 10lbs. Your goal would be to lose 2lbs each week so you can make a payment of $140 per week. In 5 weeks you will own the purse and own your new found body! If you fall behind one week and don’t meet your goal, you have another week to make it up. If you don’t the store will no longer hold your item and in some cases won’t refund your money. This is the definition of motivation honey!
Those methods are not only fun but they work! In this economy people set goals to lose weight but are more concerned with losing money than they are with losing pounds. The best thing to do is motivate yourself combine the possibility of wasting money with your goal! Use one of these methods or create your own that works for you! I will come up with more ideas as well. Share your ideas and thoughts with me! I’d love to hear from you! Till then I’ll be on the lookout for the prettiest girl in the club ^_^
