Default A Non Scale Victory

Hi everybody,
Despite many months of more ups and downs than the Himalayas I achieved a small NSV (Non Scale Victory).
We don't have a shower, so in order to rinse my hair in clean water I was relying on my husband to do it for me but yesterday.....I could reach the taps myself! There was no fatal squishing of my internal organs and I was able to breathe....more or less!
I can now also reach to pain my own toenails too!
Does any body else have some NSV's to share ? I find them so encouraging to read!
Have a great day! The sun is shining over here in Wales....we are having a lovely extra bit of Summer!
short term goal: under 300lbs by Christmas 2014
long term goal: July 2015.....Mother-of-the-Bride under 230lbs (one minute they are babies the next you are waving goodbye!)
First short term goal is Memory Walk ( 8 miles) Oct 5th 2014 for dementia in memory of my Mum who started to suffer at only 58.

lowest weight:19 stone 8 (Nov 2012 after 6 months on 3FC)
current weight 328
highest weight 364lbs

Walking up and down stairs with no knee pain still manages to put a smile on my face. Also I tried to be good on vacation and didn't come back with a huge hit to the scale.

YAYYYYYY! no fatal squishing of internal organs

Obie =every 5lbs lost

My journey
