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

  1. Pulling out my box of too small clothes and finding things that are too big
  2. Being able to run up and down the stairs and being able to do it without being out of breath
  3. Having people ask me what is different about me: “Have you changed your hair?”
  4. Having Hubby hug me and make the observation that there is less of me to hug
  5. Being able to paint my toes, easily
  6. Being able to buy and fit into a Large sweater
  7. Being able to see my whole lap when I sit down
  8. Being able to walk into a normal size clothes store and not feel like people are staring at me
  9. Being able to run around in the parking lot with my littlest boy in the cart and having fun
  10. Having  to update all my profile pictures because the old pictures look nothing like me

5 Not So Great NSVs

  1. Hubby letting me know that as my face thins out my nose is becoming more prominent
  2. Hubby making the observation that loosing weight is making me look older (yes he is batting a hundred here)
  3. Having to buy clothes but knowing they won’t fit me in a month
  4. Shoes getting too big, including my favorite boots
  5. 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?
