Exclamation February~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 actual 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. So let's start filling it up.

Great job guys !

Today, for the first time in my life, I fit into an european size 40 jeans (6/8 US size, I believe) and a co-worker came to tell me that I´m shrinking !

I think the fact that I worked out really hard this week (spinning class everyday) has something to do with it ! I´m really happy !

Have a great weekend!

Today my nnew neighbor in the office next to mine came in with a HUGE container of homemade chocolate cookies and said, "Cookie for breakfast??"

I was like "noooooo! No thank you!! Please don't do that!" She was like "sorry, sorry!"

I'm afraid it came off as rude... but I was horrified and literally leaned away from them for fear my hand would dart into the container completely on its own!!!!

But --- I am COOKIE FREE - yay!

I bought a size 10 pair of jeans yesterday. I was standing there looking in the mirror trying to decide whether they were too tight, (I'm not really used to stuff that isn't big and baggy so I always think everything is too tight.), when another shopper said "Wow, those fit great. They're a great cut on you."

43 years old and I think that may be the first time anybody has ever said that to me. So I bought them even though the last thing I need right now is another pair of jeans.

I had a sense of how really full I was after a sandwich at lunch today. Not uncomfortably so, just completely satisfied and how I really didn't want or need any more food. This is a real victory for an unconsious eater like myself who normally would just keep on stuffing it in

Happy Friday everyone!

Everyone is doing so great. Congrats. I really trully think the nsv's are much more important than the numbers on the scale.

Everything is a choice; we make the choice to be what we want to be or just talk about being what we want to be.


God, keep your arms around my shoulders and your hands across my mouth.

Sometimes God doesn't whisper in our ear what he wants us to hear. Sometimes he jumps up and down screaming PUT DOWN THAT COOKIE. We just don't listen.

That is WONDERFUL. You feel in CONTROL you feel POWERFUL. That is exactly how you should feel. You are making good choices, you are deciding if you want to eat or not. Keep at it. You will find everyday it becomes a bit easier. One day you will be doing all the wonderful things you are doing and not thinking much about it.

Way to go everyone! Feb may be the shortest month, but we're already rackin up the successes!!

My NSV is that I planned my day to allow me to have 1/2 bagel with some PB on it this morning at work. It took a bit of thought, but I did it. And hopefully that will help take away the guilt......

Have no guilt. Nothing wrong with what you had. Matter of fact fits nicely into the four basic food groups and if you like PB, there are a lot of things in it good for you. Enjoy

I can fit into my jeans again! They're not skinny-sized jeans but I was very disappointed in myself when I outgrew them, but I'm wearing them right now.
