Before I fell ill and gained 392732987382 pounds, my ex-BF gave me a Victoria's Secret e-card gift certificate for $500. I did not get to use it and sort of forgot about it until a couple days ago. I logged into the site and there it was just sitting there waiting for me.
I picked out and ordered $175 worth of cute new clothes in size Large (and leaving the rest of the credit in for their bigger sales they have). I can wear them at 200#, which is a size 14 for me, I am 5'9.
I was 150 before I ballooned, so I needed some nice in-between clothes as I will head down to my final goal at that point. When I am not on a plateau, I am losing a pound to a pound and a half a day, so around July 15th'ish I should hit 199/200.
It was just what I needed for additional motivation! I even did an extra 15 minutes on the elliptical this afternoon and I am going to do laps in the pool tonight and am going to commit to doing laps 3x a week. It's like, I can see my goal more clearly for some reason, more than I did before.
I know, I sound like a dork! LOL
Has anyone else here bought clothes smaller than they are right now to use as additional motivation?
