One of the things that you will find on many weight loss forums is people sharing their non-scale victories (NSVs). I haven’t been really good about keeping up on my NSVs, it is one of the things I’m supposed to keep in my weight loss journal. So today lets catch up, and while we are at it lets have a little fun.
5 Great NSVs
Pulling out my box of too small clothes and finding things that are too big
Being able to run up and down the stairs and being able to do it without being out of breath
Having people ask me what is different about me: “Have you changed your hair?”
Having Hubby hug me and make the observation that there is less of me to hug
Being able to paint my toes, easily
Being able to buy and fit into a Large sweater
Being able to see my whole lap when I sit down
Being able to walk into a normal size clothes store and not feel like people are staring at me
Being able to run around in the parking lot with my littlest boy in the cart and having fun
Having to update all my profile pictures because the old pictures look nothing like me
5 Not So Great NSVs
Hubby letting me know that as my face thins out my nose is becoming more prominent
Hubby making the observation that loosing weight is making me look older (yes he is batting a hundred here)
Having to buy clothes but knowing they won’t fit me in a month
Shoes getting too big, including my favorite boots
Realizing I will need my wedding ring re-sized soon or I may loose it
So what are some of your NSV with your weightloss? Have you had any Not so Great NSVs before?
Healthy Mom = Healthy Family - That is my life motto and I hope to encourage it to be yours too. January 2011 I made the decision to lose weight and lost 80+ pounds. I saw my boys start getting active with me and I realized I wasn't only changing my life but also my boys.
