Mini-Goals - I bent over and buckled my sandals!

01-10-2014, 03:43 PM
It wasn't a goal per se, but hey it used to be one of the things that reminded me on a daily basis that I must lose weight. At times I would not wear shoes that matched my outfit simply because the ones that matched had a buckle and because of my extra big tummy I could not reach my feet and buckled them up. Some days I'd wear them half buckled hoping no one would notice and yet...
So scale or no scale, this is one of the milestones on my way and I've walked it away!:belly::belly::belly:

Nowadays I've been buckling without even thinking about it twice. I must be grateful for this though, it was such a torture to bend over and pick anything on the floor, etc...I'm grateful!

NSVs like this are huge accomplishments on our journey!! I saw a pair of slip-on sneakers on clearance the other day that I almost bought. Then I remembered I don't "have" to wear slip-on shoes anymore and that I *can* bend over to tie my shoelaces when/if I need to. Of course, I will always wear flipsflops, etc. but there was a time that I had to, that I couldn't reach my feet without gasping for air and praying I didn't split my pants open trying to stretch that far.

Apparently this post really tugged at my own heartstrings, I'm so happy for you!:carrot::carrot::carrot:

This is a small goal for me too! Especially because I love shoes! :)

Wonderful for you! I'm sure that helped you feel better.

Congrats! Today was the first time in a long time I was able to bend over at the waist and tie my shoes :-) Small things most people take for granted!

Sure thing, cantbelieve. Today I'm adding a new feat. I have this black and white skirt. Today I picked it and I was able to button it from top to end. I haven't buttoned that skirt fully in months. I gave up trying to force the first button to close, then the second one, then the third one, and I made sure I would wear tops that are long enough to cover the unbuttoned parts.
Look at me now. I put it on, buttoned it and went out elated :)

WOW! WOW! WOW! CONGRATULATIONS! What a HUGE NSV! I just started to be able to put my own socks on. I had so much shame about it because I always had to call my wife to do it. It feels great to be a little more self reliant. You should be so very proud and all your wonderful NSVs are going to keep adding up and keep you going strong. I believe in you!

Progress, yes!
Today I'm rocking a shirt I could not wear a few months ago. Too tight to fit anywhere. Button won't buckle. I took it out today and wore it. This is priceless. Plus...some of my bangles have started falling off my wrists!! I'll have to donate them. I wore one today, didn't pay much attention to it. But later I realised that this bangle kept coming off when my arm was straight down. Then I thought: OH MY GOD! This is because my wrist is thinner. And I felt so proud.
