Default September NSVs (non-scale victory)

Got any? Post 'em here!! Let's celebrate all those little things other than the scale that make this journey worthwhile.

My DH keeps hugging me and telling me how skinny I am, and how he can feel all my muscles. It's pretty gratifying.

Ok-- here's one for me.. Someone at work today actually told me that I look thin?!? (Thin as in comparison to the Pillsbury Dough boy? ) I did have on a pair of pants that I bought exactly 1 year ago today that fit very snug and today, I put 'em on zipped 'em up and had room to spare! Yay! Small progress but huge motivation!

Our doorman said "Laura, you're shrinking". I wanted to kiss him, but don't think my hubby, or his wife would be comfie with that!

My DH hugged me and patted my booty yesterday and said "I have such a skinny little wife". This made me feel great.

I went to my in-laws & when I walked in my father in law just gushed about how good I looked. I don't think it was altogether a weight thing - I've recently started wearing make-up - lol. It's an attempt to feel better about myself.

Our school year is starting and I am seeing some colleagues for the first time in months and the compliments are coming fast and furious! I am sometimes embarrassed by all the attention, but then, I'm kind of angling for them too!

So, 2 NSVs today:

We had a reception for new freshmen and I decided to just go ahead and introduce myself to them and chat. I do not find it easy to be outgoing in those situations, but I figured “it’s a whole new world” and just did it! I think losing weight may make social functioning a little bit easier! One less hurdle: the voice in my head telling me how fat I am!

I went back to the store I had shopped at over the weekend to buy some shirts I had put on hold. I tried them on, but they seemed a little big and are turtlenecks, so I can’t wear them yet (too hot). I almost didn’t get them because I figured they would be too big in a couple months, but then I thought, why not try one size smaller?

THEY FIT! Size MEDIUM. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that on a label before!!!!! Of course then I immediately tried on other types of shirt in medium – no dice. But STILL!!!

Also, I wouldn't call this is a victory, but I have started to notice that a lot of my colleagues are overweight or obese. I just used to be the largest one, so never thought of anyone else as fat, but they are! I am no longer the fattest one around, not by a long shot!

Oh Heather one of my goals is to not always be the fattest in the room! I am so happy for you! Glad you tried on the Medium. Man it has to be HS since I wore a medium shirt Whhoooo

I am back on program after a slip up! So for me this is good.

Thanks for your nice words, Linda and luflic! It may be the ONLY medium I can fit in for now -- I think in general the store runs big and none of the others fit... BUT, I will totally take it, and hope it's not my last medium!!!

Exactly! I have been noticing this same thing. It seemed that everywhere I go I was always the fattest person there. And lately I am noticing that that is not the case! Of course I am still fat... but I no longer feel so fat that it is so blatantly obvious that I am the biggest one there!

I had an NSV today too. My boss asked me to walk down to the new Whole Foods Market with her at lunch. We walked down and looked all around the huge deli area and she bought her lunch to take back to the office. But the more I looked around NONE of that stuff looked all that appealing... it was a very nice, big deli... but it all seemed way too heavy and fat for me for lunch. I honestly DID NOT WANT IT!! I went back and ate the two boiled eggs I had brought with me, WASA bread and some grapes. And I was content!! WOW!

Misti -- WTG on not WANTING the food!

At the student reception yesterday they had these cookies I used to LOVE! I guessed I might not like them as well as I used to, but I wanted one anyway. But I didn't eat any. Resisted the siren call for over an hour!

Are you actually in Redmond? I know there is a brand new Whole Foods that just opened. We so should meet for lunch/coffee one day.
