4. Ruin your wardrobe Part of excitement of losing weight is finding your clothes get loose–or, finding that last year’s jeans actually fit now. One way to reinforce your efforts is to set aside some funds for every pound you lose. Put away $5, $10, or whatever amount feels right and when you hit that goal, go shopping and replace your ill fitting old clothes.
5. Enjoy extra energy As you lose weight, you’ll feel better and likely have more energy. Do something you’ve been putting off. Or, take energy and become more active as you had been in past. The increased energy as you lose weight lets you do more and increasing your activity level only moves you closer to your weight loss goals.
Take what you know about your body and turn it into a plan that works for you. Sometimes, it takes a complete direction change to get to your goals. Other times, some fine tuning can turn a good plan into a success.
