The Importance of Nice Clothes

This past week or so has been a bit of a struggle on the food and exercise front. My motivation is a little low right now. Don't worry about me. I'll bounce back. I have before, I will again. I'm still completely committed to WW and getting down to my goal weight, but I'm just not 'feeling' it right now, you know?

But I realized something the other day. Feeling like you look good is really important. I'd been in my loose sweats and tops for a couple of days and found myself just eating for the heck of it. Then the next day I put on my jeans that fit and a fitted top and you know what? I was way more conscious of what I was eating. Feeling thin and thinking about how the clothes fit so well can really help. "Oh ya," I kinda thought to myself, "I'm that person now. I do have a waist. Hmmmm...I should behave like it." Okay, that was a paraphrase, but you get the point.

I still haven't made it to the treadmill and I'm a little annoyed with myself. I need to get back at it. And Pilate's. I gave myself one last day to be lazy. Tomorrow, I'll be back at it as I've now finished "Mansfield Park" thanks to staying up until 3:30am last night. How did I ever do it? That used to be a regular occurance for me. I felt like I'd been hit by a truck this morning. But I made it through the day without the need for a nap. To bed early, I say. To bed EARLY.

    Isn't it a relief to finish a book these days? I used to be sad when they were done, but now I'm just relieved cuz I know I'll get back to being my responsible adult self.
    Trevor says I'm a person with a natural addict personality - I get addicted to things way easier than most people - I don't know if he's right or not, but I sure know that food, books, talking to my sister on the phone and computer games are things I really need to watch myself on!!
    Anyway, Congrats on finishing the book - and good luck with your fresh start tomorrow! You can do it!
