I stopped dreaming of the size I wanted to be and started acting on it! Purchase the size clothing you wish to be!
When I was size 10-12, I hated that I couldn't fit into or look good in petite clothing such as crop tops, body con dresses, skinny jeans, and of course a bikini! I went shopping and purchased size 6-8 clothes in anything I liked! Literally anything. Whether it was a size small or 6-8 all black mesh dress for a ladies night at the club or a size 6-8 Calvin Klein suite for work. The clothes weren't cheap either! So I knew I had to stay committed to this journey so I can wear them one day! In 6 months I lost 45 pounds and went down to a size 4-6 ! So get to shopping & don't leave something behind because it doesn't fit YET !
