Height: 5'4"

Default NSV - Can't even call it resistance!

Last night, I went out for supper with the girls from work. I've been on sick leave since January, and our last get-together was in July so we haven't seen eachother in a while. A time to celebrate!

We went Italian. I had grilled veg with chicken and risotto - didn't eat all the risotto. But my NSV comes in a dessert time. I'm known for my love of tiramisu, and when I declined desert I had people offering to split one with me. And comments of 'But there's tiramisu!'

Weird thing was, I wasn't particularly full (which I would have been had I had pasta), but I didn't feel like I was being deprived of either. Just didn't feel like it. So although I'd like to say I had the personal strength to resist, there was no resistance involved.

So I guess my NSV is that my taste buds are cooperating?!?

ETA: PS - must have done something good, because weight went down from yesterday, and I expected it to go up because of the night out!

When nothing goes right, go left!

what a great NSV! I have noticed the same thing myself.

Also, another thing I've noticed that if I am going to have something that isn't as healthy as other choices, I am VERY particular in what I will eat.

For example, last Saturday my kids only had a few minutes to eat lunch between marching band commitments. They said "McDonald's!". I was like, "Eh, no thanks." Big NSV for me.

That's a great NSV! Desert at restaurants are one of my biggest weaknesses too- they are just soooo good. My fave is the ice cream sundae with brownie.

It's totally worth missing out since the scale didn't go up the following day.

you're rocking it girl WTG on your NSV!

One for every 5lbs GONE!

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
