Did you know that if you wear scrubs, warm-up pants or clothing with an elastic waistband you can gain or lose 10 pounds without noticing?

Hi this is Eunice from Diet Center.

Did you know that if you gain 10 pounds more than likely you will have to buy the next size up in your wardrobe? Kind of depressing, isn’t it. So ask yourself: Should I wear clothing with an elastic waistband?

Clothing that fits well can help keep us on track where our weight is concerned and keep us motivated to eat well, not to mention being able to wear the clothing that you love. It will also save money. How? It will save money because money is not being invested in a lager wardrobe. If our clothing starts feeling tight, we will be less inclined to overeat because it only makes us feel more uncomfortable. Also, you can make it a goal to fit back into those jeans or even a smaller clothing size.

Think about what your wardrobe consists of. Do you own a lot of sweatpants or stretchy clothing? Yes, I know how comfortable it is to wear clothing like that, but it also makes it comfortable to overeat and put on unwanted pounds and inches without noticing. If you are gaining weight, it’s easy not to notice when your clothing doesn’t feel any tighter. You’ll probably be less inclined to make an effort to make better food choices.

If your job requires you to wear clothing with an elastic waistband, when you get home try changing into jeans or pants with a fitted waistband. If you don’t have clothing with a fitted waistband try putting on a belt. You can set goals with that belt. One goal could be to see how quickly that you could wear that belt in the next smaller hole. That will keep you very aware of what you are eating and how your wardrobe fits.

We know how bad it feels to grab that favorite outfit that has not been worn for awhile and have it be too tight. That outfit then gets stuck in the black hole known as the back of the closet. How depressing! Also, avoid going home after work and slipping into those comfy warm up pants, sweatpants or scrubs before dinner. They make it easy to overeat. Try to avoid clothing with elastic waists that give you room to not eat well.

This simple action shows your determination and commitment to eat well, so that you never have to wear larger sizes again. If you feel like you are struggling, and your clothing is just too tight, call me at 928-753-5066 or stop by Diet Center today at 1848 Hope Ave. in Kingman.
