The importance of looking good

I really feel it's important, if you're serious about losing weight, to feel good about yourself. The better you feel about yourself, the better you'll want to feel, and the harder you'll work to feel that way. So here's what I'm doing to feel good about myself.
  1. I got a haircut. (I'm also trying new styles that I hope will help me look and feel younger and thinner.)
  2. I'm wearing makeup all the time. And not just every day hohum makeup. I'm watching youtube tutorials by makeup artists (and bored 15 year olds lol) to learn newer and prettier ways to wear my makeup.
  3. I got new and very pretty underwear. You'd be surprised what a difference something like that can make in how you feel about your body.
  4. I'm dressing nice. Ever day, whether I'm going out or not. 
  5. I've refused to let myself look at the snacks my 1y/o and 3y/o eat as if I'm suffering by not eating them. Instead, I'm taking pride in my willpower, which helps me to have more willpower.
  6. I refuse to kick myself when I eat something I shouldn't. That's the very behavior that kept me heavy after I had my daughter. 
Hopefully, this post will inspire you to make yourself look and feel pretty while you diet.

Oh, and this is also a great way to feel better about yourself when you go shopping for clothes. Do your hair, wear nice makeup, and wear your nicest underwear. You'll feel much better about yourself.


  1. It is really important to feel good on the inside, as well as the outside. Sounds like you're doing a bit of both. Keep it up:)

  2. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I've been working hard to keep myself focused so I can lose weight and keep it off. Feeling pretty is helping a lot.

  3. I agree with everything on your list it does wonders for you. but just have some down days still so you dont feel like you have to be done up to feel beautiful or feel like thats the only way ppl will look at you differently.

  4. Definitely. :) Thanks for the comment.
