Here's a recent snapshot from my closet....dresses in sizes small/6 and juniors mediums.

It's a reminder each morning when I am getting dressed why I continue to fight the good fight each day.

Where do you get your motivation from?


  1. Love love those dresses! Keep up the excellent work my friend.

    My motivation is quite easy really. I'm still so new in the program (8 weeks tomorrow) that it would be near impossible to not have motivation I think. : )

  2. I read a blog from this chubby chick, that became a swan...I see her in sweats, and dresses, and read her trying to motivate others. I get inspired to get rid of the rest of the belly. My motivation comes from reading your success, and the success of some others..
    How ya like dem apples slim...

  3. My motivation comes from SO many different places. Today I got it from wearing a dress I have never worn before. I would put it on, then take it off. Today I have the confidence to keep it on and that motivates me to keep at it so I can wear some new dress in the future. :)

  4. I have to say that my motivationn comes mostly from fear. (So sad to admit, but true.) I'm afraid to fail at the band, and I don't want to go back to the overweight place...
    I guess I am also motivated by my success and how I've overcome a problem that has been constant for all of my life, as they say-- 'nothing succeeds like success'....

  5. I would be motivated by those beautiful dresses too!

    My motivation has been "lost" lately... but its usually a combination of not wanting to end up with the health problems my Mom has later in life & on a perfectly happy shallow front being able to buy cute clothes. :)

  6. Those dresses are too cute! I have a suit in my closet that is way too small and that's my motivation right now:)I need to be in it by the middle of July!

  7. I am motivated by the blogs I read :o) and I need to get me some of those dresses so that I too can be motivated by them, only unlike you I need to still get into them :p
