Lightbulb My Latest Motivation and Reward!

I don't typically have a tangible item that motivates me - not even a beautiful bridesmaid's dress that I'm wearing to my sister's wedding this fall - but I think I've found something.

Purchasing a "lot" or "bundle" of clothing in my next size down on ebay or craigslist! I was talking to a friend about purchasing smaller clothing sizes at thrift stores, and she suggested the idea.

Go to ebay, search women's clothing for "lot" and your size, be sure to check "search title and description". There are some fabulous finds, and it's kind of fun because they go cheaply and it's like a grab-bag.

I was told to be careful about shipping costs, though.

Anyway, that's my latest motivation. As soon as my 18Ws are too baggy, I'm placing bids on lots of 16W clothing. Hmm, maybe I should turn around and sell some of my too-big clothing this way!
  • Has anyone done this before?
  • What other things are people doing for motivation and rewards these days?

I didn't buy used, but I went and got two pairs of smaller jeans one pair I told myself I could wear at 180 and the other at 170. They were new, but still cheap. I also bought myself a pink hoddie and told myself I could wear that at 180.

I do buy on ebay tho, I love it!

Another thing I did was bought a cheap little calendar and some cheap stickers, I give myself a star sticker everyday I stay under calories (something I have trouble with) every star is 2$ in my savings account for new clothes, I am not allowed to use that for anything but new clothes when I get to goal, or close to it.

I did buy myself a new iPod Video to list to while working out, and I used it lots. It was great motivation until I found a puppy I decided to return the iPod Video because I already had an old ipod and I wasn't using any of the features the new one. So I took it back and now I have the money to reward myself with a puppy! and a walking friend

I bought a bikini from Old Navy!! It was only 10 bucks!! It doesn't fit me right now, but I'm hoping I'llbe able to wear it by mid/end of August. Under a tank top and shorts, of course.
