Thanks newleaf for starting this thread. You are getting stronger and that is an important perk. For me I had a couple from yesterday. I rarely get out so yesterday I was admist a very large hospital ( I have for the most part been agorophobic a long time-this year has been my progress but with this weightloss it is getting more progressive) All the people who I passed by would smile and say 'hi, how are you' just as people did with me in the old days, when I wasn't 'fat'. The other one was my nutrition has improved so I had to forage yesterday, my body felt yucky from substandard food. My body has told me it likes my 'new' lifestle and dislikes eatting bad (at least for a whole day) lol.

I LOVE seeing ladies from the 40's board here! Awesome! That's where I hang out most.... 2fatcats, I hadn't hear of NSV's either! I acutally googled it!

But I have one!!! I wear men's jeans, because I have a very short waist...womens jeans either ride too high or too low. It was kinda funny how my NSV happened. I need to do laundry. I grabbed the only clean pair of jeans I could find...they were 42s NOT 44s!! I'm down a size in my jeans! WOO HOO!!

2fatcats: I grew up drinking my coffee black anyways. It's how my parents drank it & it's how I learned to drink it. I also found it a good idea because sometimes sugar & creamer weren't available. I could still have coffee! Good job cutting back. Keep up the excellent work!

avalonmoon: Glad you are overcoming obstacles. Isn't amazing when you eat right, your body starts to actually crave it? Keep going!

newleaf: YEAH!! The angel won! WOO HOO! I have a huge sweet tooth...as grandma would say, "I come by it honestly." I totally get your battle, I find it's easier to just not have it around. If it's available...it's gone! I have ZERO self-control. for you!!!

kelijpa, Kat & Roo: You guys have a lot of courage! I haven't tried the mirror yet. The bathroom mirror still scares me. It does take a lot to look at ourselves & to honestly think...okay, I may not be perfect, but I am a work in progress. CONGRATS!!!

syndehat: Moving up the seat in the car? AWESOME!!! That is definitely something to celebrate! You go for it!!!

Thanks for the NSVs! This is just what I needed! YOU GUYS ROCK!!!

2fatcats that is awesome about your coffee!! For me, eating a lot less sugar makes naturally sweet things taste so much more special. Funny, as I was putting my sugar in my coffee today, I thought about trying to drink it with no sugar. Fleeting thought, quickly said "Nah..." I use 1/2 tsp.

avalon moon great to hear hat your confidence is improving and your food tastes are changing. Both great things!

mrs trying again great job on dropping down into the next size of jeans! That's awesome! I did end up eating more jelly beans than I should have on Saturday night and woke up feeling really gross on Sunday. I've been spending a lot of time reading about sugar since then, trying to break its hold on me... I've determined that I'm not sensitive to all sugar, just junky candy. Must be psychological; need to fix this. Work in progress.

I'm wracking my brain for an NSV this week. Nothing comes to mind, but luckily I have had SVs (scale victories!) so all is good

my legs feel really strong from doing higher inclines on the treadmill. Feel like running up the stairs all the time at work...

MrsTryingAgain, I love the accidentally-put-on-the-smaller-jeans NSV! It's happened to me. What a great feeling! I remember last time I lost weight, the big thing was when I could wear my husband's jeans.

I have a couple. I don't know if this one can really be considered an NSV or not, but I'll share anyways because it's a major lifestyle accomplishment. I've had issues with maintaining my weight in the past. I have been on 3 major diets where I lost weight and then in maintenance, gained it all back because I didn't have the motivation/priority/self control to reign myself in and keep my weight within a range. Currently, my goal is just just not gain through the holidays, but I gained 3 pounds! I reigned myself in just by choosing more sensible foods, reducing my calories for a couple of days, avoiding sweets, and I manage to get that 3 pounds back off. Woot!

My other NSV is the holiday Christmas party this past weekend. I must say, I was pleased with how I looked in my dress! I picked a very slimming cut, on top of the fact that I'm pretty close to my goal weight. It really feels good to be thin!

You ladies are so inspiring!

Congrats to everyone for moving forward on this journey. Some days we take huge steps, other days our forward motion is nearly unnoticable. But the key is that we all are motivated and keep moving forward - emotionally, mentally, physically. Some times the scale won't move, but you have an ah-ha moment that is so profound that it makes the difference in moving forward or not.

Be proud of yourselves for every day, every choice you make that is creating a healthy, happier you! Every day we stick to our choice to move forward is a huge NSV!

I had one tonight! I have a formal event in early March, so I've been thinking that I must find something to wear. I went shopping after work and found several dresses to try on, and one particularly pretty navy blue evening gown that I decided, "No way would I fit in that." So, I kept looking.

Before I made the trip back to the dressing room, I looked again at the pretty navy blue number, sadly muttering,"I wish I could wear this one; I really like it," again leaving it on the rack. Of several, I found 3 that I liked and decided to take them home to "really" try them on -- things always seem different at home.

On the way out, I passed the rack with the pretty navy blue number, and decided to just purchase it and see if it would fit; I could always return it.

Well, bowl me over! It fits like a glove - size 16. I was floored. I took it off and held the dress out, looking at the hip width. My head was telling me no way could that fit me! But it did. I'm still thrilled. It's beautiful, and I can't wait to wear it!

kelijpa great job on the treadmill! I find that feeling stronger is so motivating...

twinieten great job on reigning yourself back in; that is a total NSV... And great on the dress, too! I said the exact same thing to my husband last weekend; that I'm so happy to be thin again... (and then proceeded to begin a 3-day free for all on BBQ chips and jelly beans. Sabotage much?)

AwShucks how fabulous to get to wear the dress that you were pining for... I'm really happy for you; I bet you will look great!

Okay, me... hmmm, can I think of a recent NSV?? (see above re: BBQ chips and jelly beans; it hasn't been a stellar week) Okay, there was truly a pause there of at least 2 minutes while I cogitated... But I came up with something! I am looking vertical now! I bought a t-shirt in August that was too tight through my torso. Now it is loose there. And if I put the shirt on with jeans, I'll be damned -- I look tall and thin! Looking forward to the warm weather when I can actually wear the shirt!

This is not an NSV, more like a senior moment, but making me laugh so I have to share, I'm reading this post, looking at the little picture, avatar, whatever you call it, and then re-reading it thinking wow that's so well written, did I write that, I was incredibly lucid that day, but don't remember writing it, then realized it wasn't me...hahahaha...it was Kat117!

NewLeaf~that's a great feeling wearing something that was too tight that is now loose, I bet you look great!!

AwShucks~congrats on the dress, that's an awesome story.

best to all

kelijpa - Too funny!

Newleaf- that's a great NSV! I laughed out loud too... "I'll be damned-- I look tall and thin!" Love it! I had a moment like that over the summer. Hahaha... jelly bean and BBQ chips..... Yup, I know how that goes. Let me tell you how glad I was when I finally finished that barrel of cheese balls my MIL left here for the kids so I'd quit torturing myself by eating the darned things (instead of throwing them away).

Awshucks- I'm so glad that navy blue one fit! What a sweet NSV!

All of these NSVs make me smile! I really don't have any good ones lately, other than I refrained from baking chocolate chip cookies today. I have been baking dozens of chocolate chip cookies every Thursday or Friday for the past month "for my kids." Well, all of those cookies have now taken up residence on my butt, belly, thighs, upper arms, and chins. Ugh....so, no cookies this weekend. I guess that's an NSV.

Hi Heida and ladies ... A new developement, I'm no longer round...lol I'm at the end of size 18 and begging of 16 in all my bottoms here. Also my last cpl pairs of old larger pants have to go, the inseem was to the floor, okay not really but let's say it's unbeliveable I wore those and filled them out. Maybe I should get a pic in them in a few months. lol

Things are going as planned ... 'I'm melting' to quote the witch in the Wizard of Oz.
