When we don’t look good, we don’t feel good. Self image plays a big role in weight loss. I was thinking about this last night. When I went out for New Years Eve, I wore a beautiful red dress and guys were looking at me in a good way and that made me feel great. We have to learn to wear clothing that flatters our shapes. Don't wear overly baggy or overly tight clothes and always look in a full length mirror before leaving the house. A lot of things can be minimized or hidden by adjusting the clothes that you wear. If you are hippy like me, you have to be careful of tops that end just above your hips. Maybe you can try for something that is a little longer but still fitted enough to cover the hips. Wear clothes that are comfortable but not baggy. You can't be happy with yourself if you can’t breathe because your clothes are too tight.
Accept yourself as you are and try to focus more on making healthy choices rather than weight loss. The goal of weight loss is to be healthy so we are not cutting our lives short. Your primary concern when it comes to weight loss should be your health, but if you become a hot mama it's all the better.
Dress your best and think good positive thoughts. If you know you look your best, you will be putting thoughts of happiness into the universe and more positive things will begin to happen. As you lose weight, celebrate by buying a new outfit and then donating your bigger sizes to charity. You don't want to keep them around just in case you regain the weight. If your pants start getting a little tight, don't buy new ones. Simply go back and review your eating choices. More than likely you were making choices that weren't necessarily healthy and you can make a little change that will help you and your clothes feel better. Don't focus on the bad things, but all of the good things that are happening as you lose weight. Your clothes are fitting better, you aren't so tired, it's easier to walk, and you are getting compliments on your weight loss. Begin to visualize yourself thin and healthy and you will find a way to become thin and healthy.
