Remember this guy? If you do, you're showing your age!
This morning's weigh-in shows another half-pound gone forever. I'm happy with the progress although it's soooo slow.
Today I decided I need a little more extrinsic motivation. I ordered a pair of corduroy jeans from a site where I buy a lot of my clothes. They're having a special 40% off sale on jeans this weekend. The cords are a beautiful deep green color and are one size smaller than what I'm wearing now. I had the same ones last year in a larger size and sadly gave them away at the end of the winter. Happy now to be replacing them, even if they'll be a bit too tight to wear for awhile!
I figure this is a good investment. And if I hang them on the door of my wardrobe where I can see them every day, they'll remind me of my goal. Another tried-and-true tactic learned somewhere, sometime, here on SP which helped me on my downward journey some 10 years ago!
Have you tried that kind of visualization/motivation strategy? Did it work? Do you own a pair of green jeans?
By the way, I'm going back to tracking for the bazillionth time in the week ahead. I have a splurge coming up on Wednesday so I need to carefully plan how to compensate for it.
Yes, I do remember him. But no, I have no green jeans. I do however like the idea of owning green jeans and perhaps I’ll go looking for a pair as well. I’m willing to try this motivational technique! 29 days ago
