Default APRIL 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.

My favourite by-product of even losing 30 lbs, was that shoes fit so much better now!! I used to have these swollen Fred Flintstone blocks at the end of my legs, and now i have feet! honest to goodness feet! and instead of getting a 10 double wide, a 9 regular fits fine! whooot!

Soooooo naturally I went to Payless on the weekend and loaded up on summer sandals (wedges! seriously!) and had an absolute blast!

Here is a funny NSV. DH and I were out walking today. A car drove by and a guy leaned out the window and yelled "You guys are too old to be walking". Keep in mind that we are both 39 LOL! I about died laughing.

I thought this was an NSV because I was fully expecting to hear "you are too *fat* to be walking"

WOW so there is hope at the end of the tunnel. I have horribly wide feet and chunky fingers so i can never wear cute rings and shoes, this changes with weight loss?

I LOVE complaining about how I'm gonna have to get new pants/shorts soon. I put on a pair of shorts from last summer that were a bit snug around my waist, and they're actually LOOSE! Good lord!

I made it through yesterday without caving to the sugar demon...even with 3 chocolate almond bars in the freezer. I don't like the frozen, so hurried and threw them in there, but I thought about them all evening. I made it though and now today they are not even a temptation. I am so over them!

I did my monthly measuring yesterday and am down 2 inches on my hips! I had to measure 3 times just to make sure. Also down an inch on each thigh and on my waist.

Also, did my first clothing shopping in forever yesterday and bought a pair of size 18 jeans. It's been well over 10 years since I've even attempted to put on a size that small.....I am truly amazed and grateful.

Everytime I have been to the bathroom today - I have been able to pull down my pants without unzipping them!

And Last night - I did a new workout DVD - Billy Blanks Basic Bootcamp.
Today I am a bit sore and it feels so good!!

My NSV is that I haven't thrown in the towel! I'm not totally off the wagon - though I feel myself teetering on the edge. Extra PMS hormones are NOT helping!! Extra stress is NOT helping! But I'm sticking with it - and in the end I will come out of this stronger

Beth you can do it! Hang in there! PMS sucks but you'll feel so much better if you're true to yourself.

I have 2 NSV's.

Yesterday I tried on the swimming "outfit" that I was forced to wear 2 summers ago and last summer because I could not find a decent size 28 swimsuit. It was a pair of khaki shorts and a lined, cupped tank top. UGLY. Well it is huge on me. So big it is laughably funny. YES!

And this morning I got out a new shirt I just bought online from Old Navy. I got it a size too small to work into. And when I got it, it looked even smaller. I thought, heck I wont fit in this till fall. I tried it on and it FITS. I am wearing it right now. I feel positively skinny in it, as funny as that sounds. I can't believe it fits. I think it is an 18.

1. My rings are loose.

2. I ordered a couple of shirts a size smaller figuring I would get into them soon, but they fit now.

Yesterday I received a compliment from a coworker I hadn't seen in a long time. It's cool that people are noticing my loss!
