Clothes don’t make a woman, but they can certainly accent her beauty. New fashions signal the coming of the next season and are great inspirations for revamping your wardrobe, especially when you’ve dropped a few pounds. Trying on clothes can be unpleasant, or it can be a source to inspire you. If you notice your clothes fitting tighter, it may be time to ramp up your workout and re-examine your diet.
If you have been losing weight, your clothes are the first to let you know. Even before it shows on the scale, the way your clothes fit is a sure sign that your body is changing. The same is true when the opposite occurs. When you start putting on a few pounds, your clothes start to fit tighter, and you start to look for looser clothes in your closet. If you don’t address the issue quickly, you’ll be trying on larger sizes just to have some clothes to wear.
Your weight is important but just don’t measure your self worth by your clothes size or a number on the scale. Eat to live, eat to be healthy, but avoid unhealthy practices, like overeating. A constant habit of eating more than you are hungry for, will result in weight gain. Your body sends a signal to the brain that it is satisfied, but sometimes the signal gets a little muffled, and by the time the brain agrees, your stomach feels overly full, which can lead to a bloated feeling. A constant habit of overeating will lead to weight gain and increase the chance of diseases associated with obesity.
Maintaining a healthy weight is mostly contingent on your diet that should consist of lean meats, leafy vegetable, fresh fruit, whole grains and at least one serving of protein at every meal. Remember, plant protein is just as healthy as protein from meat, but plant protein has less saturated fat than meat. Keep calories in check by sticking to a portion controlled diet. It has been proven that eating several smaller meals helps you to eat less without getting too hungry between meals. That is because each meal is scheduled within 3 hours of the last meal. It’s easy to consume fewer calories when your body gets used to eating less but more often.
Dieting can be a lot less difficult when you truly love your body. Although a pretty outfit can be an inspiration for losing weight, the true inspiration comes from self-love. When you love the body that you have been blessed with, and really think of it as a gift, you realize the importance of a healthy lifestyle. Your body is your temple and should be treated with respect to celebrate the life you have been given.
Buying something that fits you fabulously, is another way to celebrate your life and love the body you live in. A well-dressed woman looks good because she is confident in her appearance and feels good about who she is. Clothes don’t make a woman but a good looking woman can certainly make clothes look good.
