Default September NSV'S

Welcome to one of the most popular threads here at the 100lb club!

For those of you unfamiliar with the term, NSV stands for Non Scale Victory. This is where we share our progress on matters that don't necessarily relate to the number on the scale. Such as making a healthier choice, resisting temptation, receiving a compliment (we're big on those), fitting into clothing better, something in the fitness area and so on and so on. It is definitely one of my favorite threads, incredibly inspiring and no, it is NOT the time to be humble!!!! It's also capable of provoking a few tears every now and then. So let's start filling er' up.

In the August NSV's thread, I mentioned how I fit in my old 18W jeans...today I fit...well at least zipped up...my old 16w's! Three weeks ago I got them up but couldn't even THINK about getting them closed....Granted I can't breathe very well with them zipped, but hey, I'll take it!!

Last weekend my mom was rushed to the ER and we found out she has ovarian cancer. My sister and I went to Florida to be with my parents, and it was very tempting to stress eat while we were waiting to find out the prognosis. I didn't do as well as I could have while we were on the road, but I stuck mostly to plan and even managed to work out once. So I'm calling it a victory and getting back on my workout plan now that I'm back home and my mom is on the road to recovery.

I did a WATP DVD for the first time last night and made it through the 3 mile workout. I think I'm going for the 4 mile today just to see if I can do it! I love being able to mix up my workouts, knowing I can do what's coming. I alternate between running, volleyball, step and now this WATP DVD definitely has a place in my weekly schedule.

Instead of reaching for ice cream tonight, I grabbed some cantaloupe. Then I sat outside enjoying the evening breeze. I was wearing a cool, tank-style dress. My daughter sat down next to me and told me 'your dress is bigger on you now'! I could have cried!

I walked 2 miles at the church today and really wasnt tired at all. I could have easily done another mile or more, but it was getting dark and I was alone.

I bought 3 shirts last week, all size MEDIUM. The week before I also bought a pair of pants for "someday" in a size 12. They were a really good buy and a brand that I wear often to work. I brought them home and they fit. Tighter than what I will wear in public, but I was so happy to know that they button, zip and I could breathe!

Went to my new gym today for the first time (post gym induction) and had a 40-minute aerobic session followed by 20 minutes weight training. Yay me!

Ok, I've been waiting all summer to post this NSV...

I ran my first half marathon today!!

I did it in 2:32:52, and I didn't walk at all, so I'm quite happy! And hey, I actually didn't collapse and die on the boardwalk in the bright bright sun!

That's wonderful, LisaMarie! Congrats!

I fit into some panties that used to be too tight today.

I had a fun NSV this weekend. I had two boxes of clothes in the attic that were too small, got one out and tried everything on, and about 2/3 of it fit! So I've got some new nighties, skirts, and work tops to wear this week, almost like I hit the Labor Day sales (like I wanted to)! I can't wait to see what's in the other box!

Yaay LisaMarie! How wonderful!

During church today, I noticed my skirt was slipping down. Its a 14/16, elastic waist. Then I had someone tell me they could notice I had lost a lot of weight. So I came right home and hit my closet. I drug out ALL my pants and jeans to try them on. I had a pair of 22W khakis that had stretch to them. I filled those buggers out too....today they hung on me. No tight thighs or butt! SLid right down w/o unzipping!!! I had new pants I bought in Feb that were too tight. Then it got hot...now they are too big! So I have a pile to donate, a pile for eBay and a bag in the trash.

The icing on my clothing cake is....a pair of size 16 (no W) Eddie Bauer jeans that were given to me last year....that FIT! Bye-Bye 18's.....hello 16...see you soon 14's!!!!

Great job, LisaMarie! Congratulations! You will be a serious inspiration to those cross country kids.

Nicki - isn't it just the best feeling to kiss that W good-bye?
