I wanted to post a few pics of some of the things that I’m using as motivators for my weightloss, more than motivators, they’re also things that once I can wear them, then I will reward myself. I decided to post the pics because it’s actually more practical than just hanging up the clothes. These clothes have been in my closet staring me in the face day after day and that hasn’t helped any. I figured I’d post them on my blog, that way my readers know but also just as a reminder to myself. I don’t know if any other bloggers do, but I read my blogs from time to time. Sometimes just to see how far I have or have not come, and sometimes just to reflect…the same way one would their journal or diary or old letters. So anyway, here are a few things that I’m using as reasons to reward myself since I’m trying my hardest not to focus on the number on the scale, but rather to focus on how many inches I’ve lost and how my clothes fit.
Let me first say, every pic has a story! lol and also, I’m not a fashion stylist, so yeah there are wrinkles in my clothes…I wasn’t about to iron them! Be glad I made the bed first! lol
Last but not least are these jeans I got from Ross back in February or March of this year. I think they were $14.99 and they are a size 14. But not for real tho! According to this designer, I would say their size 14 is definitely closer to a 12 if not a 10. So that’s disappointing. I hate to admit it, but it matters about the number on the inside of my jeans you know? Like yeah I could’ve taken them back, but I really like them. When I go into Ross I’m usually popping in real quick or I have the kids with me, in both instances I don’t get to try on clothes, so that’s why they came home with me. With these jeans, it doesn’t matter if I’m a size 10 in everything else, but these fit me like a glove! The irony!
These are just a few of the things I’m using as qualifiers for my rewards. I actually have a varied wardrobe I just can’t fit most of the things I have. But that is soon to change my friends! I was looking on ebay today at nyx cosmetics and was really tempted to get something…I have a credit on my paypal so I was like, it’s not spending my money…but I decided to hold strong and I can’t buy anymore nyx cosmetics until I’m meeting my goals. So I’m definitely motivated by these pieces to stay on the road to success 🙂 And as I achieve each of these goals, I will post a pic up here! Yeah I’m putting it out there, I’m forserious. (my madeup word, i say it in real life, don’t know where I got it from)
