LOVE the hair Carly! And good for you for pampering yourself!

Arlene, you'll be coming up with NSVs before you know it. They sneak up on you! For several weeks after starting, I read them and got great inspiration, and thought "I can't wait to have one." And then I realized I was having them all over the place but not really acknowledging them. Duh! (me not you!)

You are a million dollar babe Carly. Just looking a lovely as you really are.

Yes Arlene, just being inspired to change is an NSV in and of itself. See, you have a one already!

I finally have one again!!!! A nice way to start 2013. I went to a party where I hadn't seen a previous co-worker for over a year. I started to talk to him and I could tell he wasn't "placing me" in his mind. Suddenly he kind of jumps and says "I recognized the voice, but couldn't place it with the person. Holy $%&! you look outstanding!!"
i just can't even describe the joy I felt at that moment. It's funny how a sentence or two can stoke your fires and make them burn brightly. That validation has inspired me to knuckle down and work it harder and with more determination. It's the best kind of high.

Another non NSV was I kept the 51 pound loss THROUGH the holidays. I have never ever maintained through the holidays before.

I have another one.

Last night, when I was dressing for the gym, I wasn't really happy with the way I looked in my workout clothes. I told DH I would be so much happier with my body if it weren't for my saggy tummy and tush. He looked at me like I was crazy, then told me, "Dawn, you're 40 years old and a mother. You have a ROCKING body!"

Then, at the gym, there were mirrors all around the studio where I did my first ever Zumba class (an NSV of its own), and I realized I really do have a warped perspective where my body's concerned. I was one of the thinnest women in the class, and definitely the thinnest, most fit woman there in my age range. I don't see it when I look at myself in the mirror, but looking in the mirror with other people all around me in the mirror, I could see it. Now to just get this flab toned and firm!

Congrats Dawn, on your rocking body and for having a DH who tells you that!!

Right on Dawn! That must feel amazing to realize you're the thinnest there! Did you ever think it could happen? And it has!

Love the new avi, by the way. You guys look so happy and you ARE thin! In a fantastic way!

I re-discovered my collarbones! Yes, I do have them! I'm like a baby discovering her toes for the first time. I can't stop reaching up and touching them. Them's bones under there!

LCG,
Re-discovering nay bones is a big deal to me. When I first saw my collarbone resurface, I made my BFF take photos of just my collarbone! I am probably the only person with a pic like that. I am excited for you!

Beverly, how awesome. You're right, those moments do totally make your day, your week!! And maintaining over the holidays...you're awesome!!

Dawn, you really do look so great, and I'm glad your DH notices and tells you so. You've worked hard for your success!!

LCG, rediscovering bones is so fun, isn't it? I remember when I reached up and scratched the back of my neck and realized I could feel my vertebrae. I still do that every so often.

That is super, Dawn! DH sounds like a real sweetie--like maybe he even deserves someone as great as you! And how wonderful that you could see for yourself, in a workout class, how great you look when grouped with other people. We could all use some toning and firming, but I doubt that you have very much flab left at this point.

Woohoo! Isn't it great to uncover those bones! I keep staring at my hands because I see a little bit of bone showing up there, instead of just flabby pudginess, when I am typing on a computer keyboard.

Beverly, for keeping the weight off through the eating season...and having someone really, really notice (by not recognizing you! What could be better?)

Dawn, I love the new avi! That is the best pic of you yet! is in my future too. Funny how, when there is less of it, we suddenly want to tighten it up.

LCG who would have thought bones could be so much fun?

If you keep up with this journey you will be astounded at the way judddd reshapes your body- I know I am often stunned when I notice how small my wrists are or how thin my fingers have become!

I've been looking forward to reporting this morning's NSV. I have been doing workouts with 8 pound weights for a little while now, and this morning when I put my arm into the sleeve of my dress, I noticed a visible bicep bump on my upper arm , instead of just flab (though there's still lots of flab there). I particularly need to work on upper-body strength; a few years ago I did a fitness assessment and scored in the top 10 percent (for women of my size) in lower body strength and in the bottom 10 percent in upper body/arm strength. So it's good to know that I'm making some visible progress there --though I've got a long way still to go.

Yesterday my daughter left to go back to college. I felt sooo sad. I thought, as soon as I'm alone I'm going to make a batch of cookie dough and eat the whole thing.

Instead, I soaked in the hot tub, went for a run, and then got my nails done. A definite victory!
