Weight Loss Tip # 15: Dress attractively no matter what your weight is.
It’s so important not to put off being attractive until your scale registers the number of your fantasy weight. No matter what you weigh today, it’s so important to look your best. You know how good you feel when you know you look great! And there’s really nothing unattractive about being a plus-sized man or woman. Some of the most beautiful art in the world depicts men and women with robust figures.
Although it’s more difficult (and often more expensive) to find the fashions you love when you’re plus sized and carrying extra weight increases your health risks, it’s very important to wake up every day and accept the beautiful person who you are. It’s so worth the effort to look good every day. Appreciate your most beautiful qualities every day and emphasize them with fashion. Do you have a gorgeous smile? Show it off with some beautiful natural lipstick. Do you have an hour-glass figure? Well then why do you have clothing in your closet that makes you look like a paper bag?
Throw out the ugly clothes! Throw out the clothes that don’t fit! If you can’t afford to buy a new flattering wardrobe, spend a day going to some second hand stores in your area. Make sure the outfits you decide upon enhance your best features. Then accessorize with pretty necklaces, earrings and shoes. You don’t have to spend a fortune to look beautiful. And it’s understandable that you wouldn’t want to spend a fortune on clothes right now — even if you have a big clothing budget — because if you stick to your healthy plan of eating, you’ll be dropping a size every few months.
You’ll feel so much better about your life when you approach every day putting your most attractive self forward. Start feeling more beautiful and confident today!
Daily Inspiration: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
~ Quote by Maryanne Williamson, used by Nelson Mandela in his 1994 inaugural speech.
