Size Down in Style


When Jon was actively losing weight, he always kept a “goal shirt” or a “goal pair of pants” in his closet to serve as extra motivation. Here’s how it worked: Jon picked up a clothing item that was one size smaller than the size he fit into at the time, and tried on the slimmer garment once a week. When it fit comfortably, he gave himself a big pat on the back, and then picked up the next size down and kept right on going (Jon didn’t waste any time)! This strategy kept up Jon’s momentum and ultimately helped him lose 229 pounds — and shave 30 inches off his waist.
