Default Towel NSV!

I know this might sound kind of silly, but I've been waiting for this moment for as long as I can remember. I've been using big/beach towels since I was like 13 because a regular towel just wouldn't close all the way around me at the bottom. Today I went swimming and when I went to get a towel, the only dry one was, you guessed it, a regular one. It looked ridiculously small and I thought no way is this gonna happen, but I gave it a go anyway and it wrapped all the way around me with a few inches to spare!

I am over the moon excited right now, this is the first thing that's happened so far to make me really see my efforts in something concrete besides a number on the scale. I've been waiting for a big NSV moment, and I couldn't be happier that this was the one!
