My friend Pam Getchell passed along a weight loss tip I thought would be useful to pass along to you. It's another one of those simple things that's very powerful when you act on it.
Here's the tip. When you lose enough weight to buy smaller clothes, get rid of the larger clothes you've just "out-shrunk."
Whether you give them to the Veterans of America, Goodwill, or just sell them off in a garage sale doesn't matter. Heck, burn them if you have to! What matters is that you eradicate the large clothes from your life.
In 1519, Hernando Cortez landed on the coast of Mexico and commanded his men to burn the ships. In this way, he insured that he and his men had no choice but to move inland and face whatever dangers lurked there.
Getting rid of clothes that are now too large for you is similar to what Cortez did when he burned his ships. You're eliminating your escape routes... forcing yourself to move forward... lose more weight... and face the obstacles that confront you in your quest to conquer obesity.
So, next time you drop a size, imagine yourself as Hernando Cortez. "Burn" your too-big clothes and discover the personal power that comes from cutting off your escape routes.
