For years, my standard wardrobe choices have included things that are frumpy, oversized, and boring. Things that say “No! Don’t look at me! Pretend as if I’m not here!” Huge sweatshirts, blue jeans, boots and sneakers.
It’s a shame because I like to think I have great taste in clothes, shoes, accessories, etc. But when I weigh more, I don’t feel like I deserve to buy, let alone wear, nice or cute things.
In the last year or so, I’ve become a huge fan of Etsy.com. It’s awesome, and I am a huge fan of supporting the immensely talented people there. As I browse the site from time to time, I come across some amazingly beautiful clothes that I wish desperately I could wear.
When I reach goal weight, I will buy this dress and this top, custom made to fit me, of course. Paired with amazing shoes. *sigh.*
So, these are a few of the things that keep me motivated as I continue along with my weight loss journey.
What are some things that motivate you?
