So many of us start out strong with New Year’s resolutions, but human nature being what it is, we often revert to old habits. If like most Americans, you resolve to lose weight in 2019, clothing can be a major motivation. Not only can The Penny Pincher Boutique help accommodate your need for new clothing as you change clothing, but as a consignment retailer, we can also help you shed larger sizes, giving yourself an added incentive to keep the weight off.
Meeting Your Weight Loss Goals
One reason many people fail at accomplishing New Year’s Resolutions or goals of any kind is that they aren’t smart about it.
You’ve heard of “SMART” goals, haven’t you? It’s an acronym, with each letter representing a characteristic of the kinds of goals or resolutions that actually stand a reasonable chance at being achieved. “S” is for “specific.” Instead of a general goal of losing weight, come up with a specific goal.
The “M” in “SMART” stands for “Measurable.” Maybe for you it’s fitting into a certain dress size or seeing a specific number on the scale.
As you consider possible specific, measurable goals, make sure to keep “A” in mind: make sure it’s “Attainable.” There’s not anything more frustrating than a goal so outlandish that no matter how hard you try, you simply won’t be able to reach it.
You could make significant progress and still end up feeling like a failure; no one wants that. “R” is for “Rewarding.” While you want your goal to be realistic, you want it to be significant as well. Part of the equation is also offering yourself a significant reward. (We think a shopping spree in your new size would be a great idea!)
Finally, “T” is for “Time-oriented.” In other words, have a timeframe in view.
Consigning with & Shopping at The Penny Pincher
Once you realize your weight-loss goal, you can reduce the chances of going back if you get rid of your “fat clothes.” If you have high-fashion pieces in your former size, though, you won’t want to part with them for nothing.
We have good news for you, though: The Penny Pincher Boutique accepts gently used women’s designer clothing on a consignment basis! You can read about our consignment process in detail on our website, but you can start by sorting clothes by season and making your first appointment to consign with us this spring. Perhaps that would give you a good first goal for losing a specific number of pounds or dropping a dress size or two.
Of course, while you’re here for your consignment appointment, you can feel free to shop around. Find a piece you love in your attainable goal size, and consider purchasing it before you get there. Keeping that proverbial carrot in front of your nose might be just the motivation you need to make the difficult choice to pass up sweet treats, get up earlier to go work out, or whatever steps you find the hardest to take.
