One of the great and amazing things that happens when you change your diet, stop drinking, start working out, and really start a lifestyle of self-improvement is that you begin to notice a new you. You look in the mirror and you see, physically, a different person.
Should you lose The Weight First, Or Buy New Clothes First?
This, for many, is a tricky one, but with a very simple answer.
The very simple answer to this is that you should start buying your new clothes right away, no matter how far along you are on your weight loss and body building program.
Why? If you’re going to keep losing weight, then I’m just buying clothes over and over again…why not wait?
Again, simple answer. The entire point is to change your mentality right away. You not only want to change how people view and see you, but you want to change how you see your self, immediately.
You’ll be dressing better, getting into better shape, and you’ll rapidly begin to see yourself in a new light, and, most importantly, begin to value yourself.
Yes, some of this does depend on your finances. But, knowing people as I do, everyone has a vice that they spend money on. Start to save that money and invest it in yourself with new clothing and better food, and, if you can, a personal trainer.
Finally, with buying the new clothes, this also gives you a chance to work on your style skills, helping you find your personal style, and when you arrive at the weight that you’re happy with, you’ll have a mastery of both fitness, diet, and personal image.
Beards, shoes, and jackets; three things that can make or break a man’s presentation. Beard not maintained or not growing properly? You’ll look like you can’t groom yourself. Shoes not cleaned? Never looks good. Jacket doesn’t fit? Well, fit is important.
