South Beach Diet - NSVs we love

View Full Version : NSVs we love

03-09-2010, 07:27 AM
Someone, maybe Weebles?, started listing NSVs when the tickers were missing. I love this idea, even more now that the scale is creeping so slowly that I can barely see it move. Here's a chance to brag about NSVs in the past and those you are looking forward to.

some of my favorites:

collar bones!
muscles where there weren't any visible before
walking by a window and suddenly realizing that much smaller person is me
sliding easily into the booth at the diner

I had a great NSV the other day when my DIL was going through a tub of her too small clothes she was storing in our basement, and pulled out a pair of brand new black wool slacks she had never worn because she was waiting to lose enough weight to get into them. She said I could have them, but they'd probably be too small for me, too. I tried them on, and they fit perfectly! :D

On Sunday, I wore a purple pantsuit to Church. I bought it two years ago and it was just too snug. On Sunday it fit perfectly.

Just got back into a favorite pair of pants yesterday!!!!

My rings can come off my finger now! :)

:cheer: for all of you! YAY.

I don't want my pants to be too short anymore because my fat belly is taking up all the fabric.

Had to tighten my belt one more notch yesterday morning!

My cheekbones are back!

No overhang around the waistband of my pants.

Not a physical observation but I'm just not tired during the day and I'm falling asleep more easily.

Jen I want that too!!!

03-09-2010, 08:41 PM
No chub rub
Knowing that the seatbelt on the airplane is going to have a nice long tail.
Being able to tie my shoes without major contortions.

I'll think of some more. I need to remember these things.

I had to have a link taken out of my watchband. :)

03-09-2010, 09:14 PM
Being able to run a little bit on my treadmill routine. :woops:

Going downhill skiing again after 30 years, and being in pretty darn good shape!

03-10-2010, 01:49 AM
I want to go skiing someday too Debbie!

When husband says "oh, man, great butt!"

When husband says "oh, man, great butt!"

Isn't that the greatest compliment of all! Just this past weekend, I noticed Jake was watching me walk across the room, and he commented, "Hon, your butt looks great in those jeans!". :D

I had 2 this week... one is G rated NSV and the other an R rated one....

I wore my jeans the other day and they fit me much better... they were a lot more comfortable and didn't cut into my waist like they did 11.5 pounds ago...

My husband and I have lost about 27 pounds between us... and lets just say that we found the other night that we could really tell that there were 27 less pounds between us... :o :D

03-12-2010, 05:35 PM
hahah I was thrilled the other day when I took my measurements. I have hit a plat. actually hit keep loosing the same pound over and over no matter what I do,..

So it was huge to see that I have lost 3.5 inches on my waist 4 inches on my hips and 2 inches on my chest since I started in November!

I was packing for my upcoming vacation and my fat jeans are just too big to wear in public! And I tried on a pair of pants I wore on my December trip to DC and they were way too large. Now I just need to convince myself to get rid of them! (And I need to lose a bit more to get into any of my other jeans. I think it is that darn spreading middle-aged belly.)

03-12-2010, 08:52 PM
Karen- Get rid of them!! Congratulations :)

My NSV is: I needed to hook my bra on the 3rd set of hooks to make my bra the smallest size it has., and just a few months ago I was almost tempted to buy bra extensions.

I threw away a tub of opened frosting. 1/2 full. I pulled it out of the fridge today as I was putting the groceries up and for a second thought, oh, that would be good on peanut butter sandwich. But no, I finally had some will power and just threw it away because I didn't need it anyway.

:carrot: me!

A coworker is selling some leather skirts she got at a deep discount...She didn't have my normal size but one size lower. I said I would try it today. The lower size a pencil-style leather skirt (aka no give)! YAY! :cp:

03-15-2010, 07:48 PM
I tried on an old pair of jeans today and they fit! It's Lane Bryant sizing so I don't know what it means in terms of real world stuff, but who cares!

My friend's 4 year old daughter said to me today "Melissa I think you left your face in the dryer too long cuz it shrunk!" and I cracked up laughing and said "No Brianna, I am just eating healthier so I am losing the squishy in my face." She turned to her mom and said "Mommy, you need to start eating over Melissa's house." I was so relieved that she was cracking up laughing too because I couldn't stop. LOL

I really need a "yay Jenn" so I thought I'd share:

For the last 2 weeks at least, I have walked up and down EVERY escalator I've encountered.

I take the stairs in the am, versus the elevator or escalator, to get down to the metro (about 25 steps), then I take the long escalator down (50 steps) and walk it the entire way to the platform. After I get off the train, I walk UP the short escalator to the turnstiles (about 15 steps) and then walk up the escalator to the street (about 35 steps).

I do this in the am, when I am at my crankiest and at night going home, only reversed.

I have never been able to keep up with Metro walkers before (we here in DC stand to the right and walk on the left in the Metro [subway] system) so I always stood. Not any more!

I've even kept up with all the army brats running up and down.

I am just proud that no matter how crappy I feel, I've been making sure that this becomes routine to me. I want to no longer think about it, Just Do It! :)

03-18-2010, 11:13 AM
Whoo hoo! Yay Jenn! That has GOT to feel good!

03-18-2010, 11:30 AM
:carrot: :carrot: :carrot: Jenne! :bravo:

03-18-2010, 08:59 PM
Yay Jenn, that's great!!

I had another NSV this week: 1. the giant pants I've been wearing for the past year are finally so enormous they look ridiculous so I had to buy a few pairs of pants. and 2. I got back into a few of my pre-pregnancy skirts :D!! I loved my pre-pregnancy wardrobe so I'm so excited that something from it fits!

These NSVs are all so inspiring to me, keep them coming folks!

I wore a shirt yesterday that used to be "tight"fitting shirt. Yesterday there was breathing room. It felt good to wear it. I think I could have wore it without my "Hold everything in" spandex!!!

Today I made two coffee cakes, a carrot cake, and a chocolate chip cake and I didn't taste any of the batter! I didn't even want to. Well, that's a lie. I wanted to, but I was able to talk myself out of it.

03-19-2010, 07:03 PM
Kara - your strength knows NO bounds!

Now I want cake ;)

03-20-2010, 12:46 AM
Here's a picture of one of two big escalators I climb every day :) I looked like such a tourist today taking a picture of it!

Now, I get winded but I don't let that stop me ;)

03-20-2010, 03:37 AM
I think sometimes we have to look like tourists where we live, just for fun! You go, Jenn!!!

03-20-2010, 07:41 AM
Wow, that's a pretty steep one Jenn! Good for you! :carrot:

My college ring fits again. :)

03-20-2010, 12:27 PM
I was happy packing my clothes this morning for our trip! These were the same clothes I pulled out last Spring that didn't fit. Now they're baggy! This year I WILL take some pictures!

03-20-2010, 12:43 PM
:D WTG Debbie! :D

03-20-2010, 12:54 PM
Heidi and Debbie :cheer: Awesomeness!

I bought a fancy dress for a special banquet for work back in January, but ended up having to work that night and didn't get to go. Now there is another banquet I have to go to on Firday, so last night I pulled my dress out to find the right bra to wear with it and it is too big to wear!

:broc: Awesome Daphne! Best feeling in the world!
