Talking NSV - complete towel closure

I just noticed today, after my shower, that my bath towel can wrap all the way around me!! I even have about a 3 inch overlap in the hip area -HOORAY! Now if I can ever get one of those itsy, bitsy, teeny, weeny, practically see-through gym towels to wrap all the away around it will truly be time to celebrate.

I have noticed this, also! And there's a lot more room in the tub (or, really, in seats/chairs in general).

WTG!

I noticed this in my mirror, too.
Almost made me want to parade around the house in a towel.

Yay for little victories! Congrats! I know those are what keep me motivated.

I just had a quick question for anyone that would know... what does NSV stand for? Sorry, I'm new here and I haven't figured out all the acronyms yet.

Thank you all for your support for this silly but happy moment. It's not something you necessarily want to brag to family and friends "Hey a wonderful thing happened to me today, I was finally able to get a towel yo wrap all the way around me!" But I can always count on all kind folks at 3FC's to know exactly how I feel.

EricAnn NSV = Non Scale Victories and they can feel just as good as Scale victories - to me, anyways.
