Non - Scale Victories!



Although my scale is continuing to show lower numbers, I am rejoicing in many NSVs!

1. Clothes I haven't been able to wear fit again. Specifically, I have found shorts and capris that I haven't been able to wear for years. I have only one pair of jeans that still fits me. The rest are so baggy it's annoying. Some of my shirts are too big, too!

2. I have been able to resist the Easter candy.

3. People I haven't seen recently are shocked at the difference.

4. I can see bones that I haven't seen a while.

5. I can do more push-ups more easily. Sit-ups are coming along.

6. I'm sleeping great and no longer have indigestion.

7. It's starting to be fun shopping for clothes again. I don't think I'm quite there for bathing suits, but shopping for an Easter dress was great!

These are the ones I can think of off the top of my head. I'm sure there are more!

What are some of your NSVs?

Michele

There are so many! The NSVs are almost better than the scale numbers......almost! LOL

Being able to cross my legs
Not having to worry about whether or not I will fit into a booth
Being able to fit in an airplane seat
Running a 5k with my kids
Shopping and buying clothes I actually like
Being able to walk up a flight of stairs
Being able to keep up with my dogs when we go for walks in the desert
Wearing a belt

Oh, MtherGoos, you have done a 5k! My hat goes off to you. That is a goal of mine. I can easily walk 2 miles now. I need to see if I can walk 3.2 miles. I definitely canNOT run that far.

I thought of a couple more:

I weigh less than my husband! Whoot whoot!
I am considered overweight now.

Thanks Michele! I LOVED doing it, however I found out that adding in the exercise brought my losses to a screeching halt, so I quit until I get the rest of the way to goal.

You're doing a great job and have a lot to be proud of!

MG - I'm right there with you on wearing a belt - I love belts and for many years couldn't wear them. Now I just don't feel right without a belt on my jeans, love it!!

Afterthought -- it's also a great motivator, getting to tighten up another notch is great but boy it opens your eyes if you feel a bit snug and go the other way.

Oh yeah, belts. I remember those. How about tucking in a shirt! I can't wait to do that without a muffin top!!!

NSV:
1. Easily drying every inch of your body after a shower!
2. Tying shoes or doing up that little ankle strap on a sandal.
3. putting on socks and getting in and out of the car without grunting.
4. yard work without stopping every 10 mins!!

YAY FOR US!!!

Love those Bonny! You made me remember one of my favorite ones ~

Being able to wrap a REGULAR size bath towel around my body, not having to use one of the great big ones!

Thanks, Repto girl!

I think part of my ability to wrap a towel around myself is coming from the purchase of new towels. We replaced some that I am sure I got at wedding showers, so they were 25 years old! I think the newer ones are a tad bigger, and I'm a tad smaller - so it works! LOL!

In the small town I live in there is walmart and then a couple other stores, one i know has plus sizes..but they don't have my plus size..I think they go up to 22 or 24, so okay it's not a NSv it is a non scale goal, laying in bed on my side I have a bit of a hip bone..that is a first!!!

You aren't kidding! I remember the first time I was pregnant, and all the other ladies I knew who were pregnant were borrowing winter coats from their hubbies. Not me! LOL! He's always been a skinny guy.

Way to go Bonny!

Last 10, maintenance is the hardest part, so that is a huge NSV!
