Dressing to Feel Good: A New Year’s Resolution You Can Keep January 13 2016, 0 Comments
Here we are, already in the second week of 2016. Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? It’s a good feeling to start off the new year with some goals to provide motivation to be a better you. But it’s slightly disheartening for me to see that the number one New Year’s resolution for 2015 was to lose weight. I’m sure that was at the top of the list for this year as well, and many years prior. The plethora of commercials on TV and radio right now about weight loss programs only serve to reinforce Americans’ belief that they need to lose weight to be happy.
I am a very healthy eater and exercise regularly. My concern is that most of us aren’t happy with who we are, and feel like losing a few pounds will make us happy. But does it make you happy to starve yourself and get hungry at your desk every day at 3 p.m.? Or to say no to that beautiful birthday cake of a co-worker just because you’re on a diet? Eating right and exercising are important to healthy living, but I have a dream for a society where everyone is happy with their looks and works to stay healthy, rather than constantly dieting in an attempt to change who they are.
One way to do this is to buy clothes that fit and that you feel comfortable in. It’s only natural for our bodies to change as we get older. Let’s face it, our 40-year-old hips just aren’t the same as our 20-year-old hips were. But this doesn’t mean we have to work to get our current body to fit into the pants we wore in our 20s! Trying out new styles, buying a size bigger if necessary, and paying attention to clothes that fit well and look good go a long way toward building your confidence and helping you feel good about yourself.
That’s one reason why we are so proud of our Go Free Pants. This line of pants not only fits well, but looks great on women of all shapes and sizes. And you feel great wearing them! Our patent-pending design replaces the cross seam in traditional pants with a smooth cotton panel that offers all-day comfort. Thanks to the cotton panel, you can leave those uncomfortable thongs in the drawer and stop worrying about panty lines with any of your favorite styles, helping you feel confident and sexy all day long! Check out this video as I explain how Go Free Pants give you the fit and feel you want.
Make a New Year’s resolution this year that you can keep. Resolve to buy clothes that fit and flatter your figure. When your pants fit and look great, you are able to concentrate on life instead of worrying about your weight. And of course, get moving and focus on eating healthy foods. Because feeling good is the biggest factor in looking good and feeling sexy!
I also want to take this opportunity to encourage you to check out Bella Mia magazine. This wonderful publication contains fabulous content about looking good and feeling good, inside and out.
Easy Tips for Feeling Sexy in the New Year January 06 2015, 0 Comments
We are officially in 2015. The first few days of the new year are usually a time for reflection and making new goals. The commercials for gyms, weight loss programs and aids to help quit smoking are a clue to what the New Year’s resolutions for many Americans are. When it comes down to it, most of our resolutions center around one thing, which is to become a better person. The way to be the best you is to feel good about yourself, and once you’ve got that covered, you’ll exude sexy confidence wherever life takes you.
I truly believe that sexy comes from the inside. It doesn’t matter what your age or size, as much as how you feel about yourself. So here are a few ways to help boost that good-for-you feeling throughout 2015.
- Get moving. You don’t necessarily have to be one of the thousands (or maybe millions) of Americans signing up at a gym to get in better shape this year. The point is to just do something. Find an exercise you like to do, or a class you love, and make a schedule that fits with your busy life. And be more active in your daily life! Take the stairs, park farther from the supermarket door. The word on the street is that walking 10,000 steps a day can help burn enough calories to lose weight. And that’s without sweating it out in the gym!
- Pay attention to what goes in your body. The new movement to “eat local” is one I really get on board with. I’m lucky to live in North Carolina where our growing season is long and our crops are varied. Paying attention to what’s fresh and in-season will help you incorporate more fruits and vegetables in your diet.
- Buy clothes that fit. There’s nothing worse than trying to squeeze into a pair of pants that haven’t fit for three years. Not only are you uncomfortable wearing them, but it doesn’t do your confidence any good if you walk around all day feeling fat. A good pair of pants or a skirt that fits well is way more flattering than trying to wear something just because it’s the size you wish you were. Embrace your size and flaunt it!
- While you’re at it, buy some Go Free Pants! Our specially-designed pants are made to be worn without underwear, so you never have to worry about that dreaded panty-line. And another bonus, not wearing panties gives you a sense of freedom and sexiness that you have as your little secret all day long!
Throw those unrealistic New Year’s resolutions out the window, and instead, just focus on feeling confident and happy. A little goes a long way!
From all of us here at Go Free Pants, we wish you all the best in 2015!
