We are a busy bunch with our NSV'S! Keep them coming......

LoCarbGal 11-19-2013 03:24 PM

How exciting that we've had so many that we need 3 threads! One of these days I'm going to go back and read through ALL of them.

KeirasMom 11-19-2013 04:54 PM

I think we have the most NSVs of any other plan. :clap:

Lee524 11-19-2013 06:33 PM

I'm sure it's been mentioned but my exciting NSV is not having my bra straps dig into my shoulders as much lol

:up: yay for that one!

We do have loads of great NSVs around these parts ;)

LiLi914 11-19-2013 08:03 PM

We sure do!

I usually take selfies and over the past few weeks I've seen full length photos of myself. This is going to sound conceited, but I'm looking fantabulous. Clearly, I have a long way to go, but I am so proud of how far I've come. How far we've all come on this journey.

Rosebud5t 11-19-2013 08:34 PM

That's awesome and not conceited at all!!! It's so important to love ourselves and feel good about ourselves. :clap:

Kissa 11-20-2013 03:02 AM

I bet you do look fantabulous Lisa. And you deserve it too.

Love seeing this thread booming. NSVs are so special.

Flossyliz 11-20-2013 06:12 AM

Wow, NSV3. That's going to be quite a sequel!

That's not conceited Lisa. Congratulations on your blossoming self-esteem. :high5:

I've still to catch the end of episode 2 but I'd like to share that, despite an embarrassing excess of holidays and UDs recently, I've just bought the size smaller jeggings. They're snug but there's no muffintop, so I've kept my lovely JUDDD waist.

JUDDD works!!!!!
:jumpjoy::jumpjoy::jumpjoy:

Goner 11-20-2013 07:38 AM

Congrats Flossy! JUDDD waist - love it!

Lisa - Good for you - looking good and having the self confidence to share it is NOT conceit!

LoCarbGal 11-20-2013 08:48 AM

:jumpjoy::jumpjoy::jumpjoy::jumpjoy::jumpjoy:

I LOVE THIS THREAD!!!

Ooh, that's a really good one Lee! I remember hearing that your straps shouldn't be what is providing the support and thinking "Yeah, right." But when you're better proportioned, it's true. Rock on girl!

YOU are not conceited, my friend! Oh, and by the way, you ARE looking fantabulous!! I'm so happy for you and proud of you!

Smaller sizes while enjoying indulgences...what other plan allows THAT to happen, I ask you? Only JUDDD! WTG Flossyliz!

I admire you for being able to recognize how great you look and NOT waiting for someone else to tell ya:D

Flutter 11-20-2013 01:24 PM

It's a good feeling to do our best with everything.
And when good things come from those actions-wa laaaa!
:) fr everybody

Lee524 11-21-2013 09:58 AM

Hey all, hope all of you lovelies are doing well!...I don't know if this is a NSV but it's funny as HE**, as least to me...here goes: I decided to run to the supermarket for a some fruit, threw on a pair of jeans {forgot the belt) and off I went, get to the market...jeans dragging, somehow I managed to trip over my own pant leg and right into the granny smiths...APPLES WENT EVERYWHERE!

Can you say embarrased? lol

Eieio 11-21-2013 10:04 AM

Droppy draw syndrome always :)
CONGRADULATIONS

LoCarbGal 11-21-2013 10:20 AM

Lee, that is funny! And it is a NSV - those pants don't lie!

Lee524 11-21-2013 11:28 AM

LOL and I can't find the darn belt!

Flutter 11-22-2013 09:14 AM

Oh my, what a riot, Lee! Good for you!!! :clap:

Kismet311 11-22-2013 06:55 PM

I have gotten rid of a few pairs of jeans that are way too big! It's a great feeling (I hate wearing belts so if they are big then they go in the trash)!
Today at work a few of the girls and I were talking about clothes and I said I needed a new coat. One of them said oh, you're probably a size Small...UMMMMMMM yeah sure...we'll go with that.... :rofl: I've never been a small anything. Probably can get away with a Medium but it was nice to know I kinda "looked" like I could fit into a small :o

Librarygirl 11-22-2013 07:12 PM

Wonderful NSV's everyone!! Lisa, if you don't realize you look good, no one else will either. ;) And Lee, yay for more comfortable support!!

I just wanted to post a very tiny NSV. My 14 Levi's aren't as tight. :D

LoCarbGal 11-22-2013 10:13 PM

When people tell you you look like a small, you know you're looking good Kismet!

Cindy, that's great! I'm jealous, 'cuz my 14s are still t-i-g-h-t! But the 16s I wore today are very comfy, bordering on looseish. So there's that.

jdforshort 11-23-2013 12:35 AM

The bras fitting better, what a relief!:D When out walking, I notice my shadow shows up with a curvy figure :jumpjoy: Even under a supports bra, boobies are dominating my tummy as if saying :hiya:

Kismet311 11-23-2013 05:44 AM

Bras are so much more comfortable when they fit well. I used to have some bras that woulds squeeze the fat on my back LOL I hated wearing them but now they fit nicely. I actually could use some new ones. I was barely fitting into a 38B now I might try for a 34!

You have come a long way and it's great that you can see it!

You'll probably move into twelves before I do anyway! ;) I wore them all day yesterday (casual friday) with boots and the legs are loose(ish), and the waist is comfortably snug. That said, I can still wear my stretch Levi's 18W.:dunno: I am at a new low this morning too, finally!:jumpjoy:
