I Gave Up French Fries For My Wedding Dress

October 10, 2010

Something to remember when you’re losing weight is to write down your goals… and start small.  Make your goals attainable to help keep you motivated.  Baby steps! 

Maybe you’re interested in running; you’re not going to go sign up for the next New York City Marathon!  You’re going to start small – a 5k charity walk, and then a few months later, jog a 3k.  Once you’ve become more comfortable in your running shoes, sign up for a half marathon.  You get the picture.

My goals do NOT involve running, but I love new clothes.  Of course, I didn’t start off at 200 pounds trying to squeeze myself into a pair of size 8 jeans!  I had to set more realistic goals.  First, lose 2 dress sizes.  Next, try on a size 10 pair of pants.  No buying!  Size 10 was not my goal.  I did, however, buy my wedding dress two sizes too small 6 months before my wedding (no pressure… I made it, though!!).  Now I’m a size 4, and own my dream “goal weight” little black dress!

Once you’re at your goal weight/size, you need to stay motivated in order to maintain!  You’ve worked really hard to get the body you have, don’t stop setting goals now!  Treat yourself to a night out every once in a while, reward yourself with a fun new workout program or a brand new pair of sneakers.  How about a laptop or beach vacation to showcase your bikini bod?

Everyone has different goals.  Dream BIG, but start small and work your way up.  This will help keep you focused, motivated & on track to accomplish everything you could ever imagine!
