Getting to your desired weight takes commitment. When you achieve it, you should celebrate.Personal Trainer Food encourages celebration to acknowledge your achievement and share your new look with others. It feels satisfying to know you stuck to the program and made it happen. How you celebrate is just as important as the work you put in to achieve your goal
TIP: By the way, you can celebrate at any point along your goal achievement path when you realize you’ve made significant progress. Go YOU!
The best celebrations are the ones that make you feel as good inside as you look outside. Like the way you feel when you celebrate your birthday.
Make sure your celebration is as healthy as your new lifestyle.
Your celebration can be simple like a new swimsuit or elaborate like a new wardrobe or it can be more elegant like a moonlight walk on the beach with someone special on a weekend getaway. Your celebration choice needs to make you feel good.
Consider these 5 celebrations that are not based around food.
One of the forgotten changes in weight is your feet. When your body changes, chances are your shoe size may change also.
A really, great pair of sandals for the summer is a great celebration idea.
Full Body Scrub
Your skin has undergone the same changes as the rest of your body. A body scrub will remove dead skin and give your skin a refreshed glow. Drinking lots of water is the best skin cleanser. Skin needs to breathe to be healthy.
When we emerge from the winter to spring to summer, removing dead skin cells is a wonderful pick-me-up for your skin. A full body massage, even without the scrub, does wonders for activating the blood vessels in the skin for natural pigmentation.
Change your look
My mother always said, “The first thing people notice about you is your head: face and hair”. Mom is ALWAYS right. 🙂
I LOVE that manufacturers have realized facial moisturizers are great for both men and women. A good moisturizer with at least SPF 15 to block harmful UV sun rays will maintain youthful, healthy skin for him and her.
Most department store make-up counters and cosmetic stores still offer make-up makeovers. Wash your face before you visit the store. When you arrive, request a new set of summer colors for your skin tone, that let you show out when you show up this summer.
TIP: visit the store at a low busy time to make sure you have your make-up artist’s full attention.
A Haircut can be wonderful
My hairstylist is adamant that a different haircut changes your entire appearance and can really update your “look”. Try a color or cut that’s different from what you’ve always worn. Or try both. Consider a new haircut to accentuate your thinner face.
TIP: When trying a new color, consider using a semi-permanent color or a spray-in highlight so it’s easy to remove if you’re not happy with it.
Schedule a closet review with a personal shopper. I know you want to show off your rockin, new bod, but you still have clothes in your closet you need to wear if you are not buying an entirely new wardrobe.
Your personal shopper can provide tips to
- bring your pant’s waistline in a few inches to fit tighter
- repurpose shirts that may be oversized
- shorten a skirt, take in blazers or trousers.
- generally, how to mix and match your existing clothing with a few new trendy pieces to make your entire wardrobe look fresh and new. Your loss is someone else’s gain. Donate clothing you’ve gotten so skinny to wear (Yeah!) to someone else and keep fashion sustainable.
