Buying clothes for the "new you"

I am guilty of buying an article of clothing with the goal of fitting into it "one day." You know the problem with that? That one day never seems to get here. Sure I can fit into that clothing but now it is out of style. It is almost like buying a wedding dress for that wonderful day and not even having a fiancee at the time. You never can tell if you might have to look at maternity wedding dresses when the real time comes. Clothing should just be an expression of who you are today, not who you will be one day in the future.

Healthy living, not instant living

I am always surprised when someone asks me if they should try a quick diet or a 3 day fast. I even get people asking me "is 7 day slimming pill safe?" To which I answer, "a better life long eating pattern is the safest." You can't rush your body, you have to let it adapt to healthier living over a period of time.

Don't for the instant results that fail in the long term. Go for change that is permanent.
