Want to Lose Weight? Buy New Clothing.

I don’t know how it is for others. For me it seems to be a no fail plan. I go out, spend a fortune some money on new clothing and then I seem to find the motivation to stop stuffing my face start watching my food intake.

I was thinking about it (something I do way too often) and came to the conclusion that it is probably not that simple.

It’s kind of like the which came first, the chicken or the egg, debate. Do you lose weight because you have bought new clothing that fits you and you feel good wearing them? Or did you buy the clothing in the first place because you were feeling better about yourself and that feeling better was the impetus for the clothing buying and the weight losing? (You might need to reread that a few times for it to make sense.)

Or maybe it’s a little bit of both rolled into one. Either way, it doesn’t matter. I had enough of the uncomfortable feeling of mushing my fat rolls every time I sit down. (And yes, I know, too much information.)

I am slowly getting back on the band wagon. It is not easy physically or mentally but I feel a bit lighter both mentally and physically.

Wish me luck.

Do you find that buying clothing is a good way to find the motivation to lose weight?
