I was talking to a co-worker today (she also is trying to lose weight) about how I had gained around ten pounds after having done so well losing weight with my Lent challenge. I wasn't feeling terrible about it and the weight has already started coming off, but her reply made me laugh and I felt even better. Her response was, "Ten pounds of beautiful."
It's a great reminder; weight gain isn't the end of the world, especially if you still can feel good about the way you look. That's a great NSV for me (who would have thought I'd find a victory in spite of gaining weight?).
Yeah, I can look a little chubby around 130, but I can stand in front of a mirror and still feel good.
