There comes a time in every successful dieter's life when he or she stands befuddled in front of the closet, wondering what in the heck to wear.
The clothes that fit a few weeks ago now hang in loose and unflattering folds. But with goal weight still several pounds away, it's not time to invest in a whole new wardrobe.
It's a happy dilemma, but a dilemma all the same. So what's a soon-to-be-slimmer person to do?
What not to do, the experts say, is to keep reaching for those same old baggy duds -- at least not after a certain point. Clothes not only make the person, they can make the person feel and look slimmer. And some say that dressing to look your best, no matter where you are in your program, can inspire you and help propel you further downward.
