Buy Your Bathing Suit Before You Do Anything Else

“Before you even begin to make changes to how you eat and move, you’re going to make one simple change to your wardrobe: ditch the fat pants and buy a bathing suit,” says Dr. Oz. “It doesn’t have to be a string bikini -- but buy one you’d like to wear confidently this summer. It’s a powerful form of motivation and wearing stretchy clothes, while comfortable, allows you to be ignorant of weight gain.”

Try it Today: As much as you may be dreading the dressing room, it’s time to get real. Head to the store and find your goal swimsuit. Then hang it somewhere where you’ll see it as a daily reminder of what you’re working towards. Plus, staring at it every day may help you say no to that brownie.
