NSG

As you all may know (or not) I'm not really weighing myself right now (except when I snuck that little weigh-in on my friend's bathroom scale -6lbs yay) but measuring and looking for those NSV's! Today I found this cute leopard skin spring jacket that was brand new that my ex's grandmother had given me. It was super small but I always wanted to lose weight to fit it. Well I tried it on today and it doesn't look bad. Needs about an inch loss all around (chest, back, tummy) to button, 2 inches to button and sit down without the button flying off and taking out an eye. So I decided that is going to be my 1st NSG: NON-SCALE GOAL! It is a great light weight coat that will be perfect for the spring. So my goal is to get it buttoned by the first day of spring, March 21st. so basically 4 weeks. I think it is doable! Especially once I get back in the gym. Feeling much better now, think the cold is on the way out. Anyway that's my big light bulb today---NSG's!
Anyone else have NSG?

I just realized I bought a pair of skinny jeans that are a bit too skinny for my comfort. I had planned on returning them, but then I thought I'd keep them and try them back on in a month or so. See, I just didn't realize there would be a non scale GOAL thread I'd need them for. Now I can totally justify keeping them! Thanks broadway!

My NSG is similiar to Melinda's. I bought some jeans online, always a crapshoot, and they're too tight... instead of returning them, I'm now determined to wear them soon

Hmmm I need a NSG for sure as the scale is being stubborn.
Two NSG's:

Rock my black leather Frye riding boots with ease... they're just too snug around the calves right now.

Rock my black leather jacket with ease too. With no tightness in the shoulders and arm pits.

Awesome NSG'S ladies!!!

Phyl, OF COURSE I'll post a pic when that jacket fits!!!

Melinda and Brainardt can't wait for those jeans to slide on with ease!

Green, you're gonna be rocking all that black leather soon!

Carol, get back to me on this! LOL! PS. Where can I find a weighted hula hoop? A sporting goods store?

Not Carol, but I got mine at Target, IIRC. I just saw one there a couple of days ago that's adjustable. I didn't really look at it closely, as I already have one, and the price was more than I spent on mine.

They have them at Walmart, Big5, and other sporting goods stores as well.

Yep, Dawn's right. I ordered mine from Walmart for $20, and it has six pieces that click together, so the box you get it in isn't ginormous!

I'm still thinking on my NSG. I need to make it a good one!

My hangers are full of my fat clothes. My skinny clothes are packed away in plastic totes. There are piles of totes, though.

Spurred by this this thread, I just tried on the next pair of jeans in "pile". These were the jeans I wore a couple of years ago when I was still in the low to mid-190's. They actually buttoned! They are still a bit snug but I should be able to wear them in a pound or two.

My current jeans are a pair of 34x32 Old Navy (mom) jeans. I was wearing them last summer and when I wore my barefoot shoes, the jeans were long enough that the back of the leg would catch under the shoes, since they didn't have any heel. At the time, Old Navy was having an online sale so I bought the same jeans in a 34/30 cheap.

When I got them, though, I couldn't button them. I mean I was a good inch from being able to button them. Anyway, I just tried them on too, and they buttoned! They are still too snug to wear comfortably but at least I could button them. Unfortunately, I think they are going to to be too short but still... they buttoned!

I bought a skirt online. It said it runs a bit small, so I bought a medium. Since most smalls are a bit big. Well, this Medium is a 25" waist!

Since when is a 25" waist a medium. I can wear it, but it's snug. I guess I'll see how it fits by March 21st, but I still reserve the right to return this, because wearing a 25" waist may be too lofty for me.

Thanks, BB. I think the pic kind of hid the muffin top and moobs. And the fact I could barely breath.

I donít think that really skinny jeans are actually my best look! Fitted, but not like a pair of tights is better. Still, Iíll give them a go once in a while.

I don't think losing the spare tire and moobs will make me too scrawny. I've come to terms with the idea that I'll never have visible abs but I would like a flat belly.

I know what ya mean Frosty. Hope I didn't come across critical. Just my way of sayin you look pretty good already. Each of us needs to do and be what makes us comfortable. I sooooo get that.

I'll bet many of us are told to be happy where we are......but do we listen?.......Naaaaah!

Oooh that's another NSG for me, I've always wanted a pair of red skinny jeans, I have a small booty and great legs but a too big tummy so I want to pare that down a bit before I buy them. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE WEAR THEM FOR ME! Let me live vicariously thru you!
