I have a lot of girlfriends who have influenced me one time or another to be a “shopper” and buy clothes or accessories that I just didn’t need or was looking for. These girlfriends’ influences have been one day only…like the 1 day shopping excursion. But of one my co-workers / girlfriends has been “working me” over the past few years on how to dress, what accessories to have, where to spend my money, and why I should do this. She is mostly referring to my work wear. She says I dress fine but I could dress better. She says I’m pretty and not “fat” but I don’t really “leverage” my assets. She has turned me on to dresses because dresses have room for people to fluctuate weight. If you eat a big meal, you won't feel like you need to loosen your pants. Or if you gain a little weight, your muffin top doesn't show. On top of that, they're "cheaper". You can $50 for a dress. Or $40 for pants + $30 for a blouse.
I never wore dresses to work before but I definitely am now. I probably wear them 2-3 times per week now. I have a handful of black, gray, and solid colored dresses that I like to rotate through. I think my dresses for the office is mostly complete. I could probably use a handful of wrap dresses. I love wrap dresses because they really flatter anyone's figure. I don't currently have any though. The ones I did have were cheap and from H&M, which I have learned is a great store for cheap clothes that you can wear for about 1 year. So a good quality wrap dress could be a "gift" to myself when I hit a goal/milestone.
What other rewards could I give myself when I hit my weight goal?
