Default What's you're favorite non-scale victory so far?

Just wanted to hear some good non-scale victories. I'm still early in my weight loss. But I was way excited about a month ago when I sat in a metal patio chair without the pain of its arms digging miles into my leg fat!

I've just begun so I don't have very many yet
So far though there have been two:

2. I saw the first little rippling of muscles under my fat thighs yesterday at the gym!

I bought some jeans just over a year ago a size smaller than I am in the hope I would fit in them. They were only 3 pounds and I didn't fit into them - could barely get them over my legs, and when I did manage to they were about 5 inches too small across my tummy More than I expected But I am wearing those jeans and they fit perfectly now Not tight at all

My other favourate NSV is I now also fit into a lot of my old clothes from 10 years ago (OK they're baggy jumpers I got in early pregnancy but I thought i'd never fit into them again )
By the end of May????

Wow. There are seriously so many I can't begin to come up with a "best"...But the best today was when I helped serve lunch at a funeral at church and not only did I not break out in a huge dripping sweat (like I used to) serving 200+ people, I also got tons of compliments on a 20 year old outfit I altered and updated for the occasion.

This one is easy! For me it's being able to wear a size that doesn't end with a 'w'. It means that I can shop in the REGULAR department. For a decade I've dreamed of being in the 'normal' sizes and now I am! Sure, I'm still in the biggest size (16) but I am THERE!

I haven't bought much because I'm wanting to get smaller of course but it's been wonderful for my ego and inspiring for me to go in and try things on. I can get a 14 on now but not buttoned yet. Soon....

1st goal- ONEDERLAND! Check!
2nd goal- Less than 194 (a number I've been stuck at before) CHECK!
3rd goal- Reach the 180's- haven't been there since 1999. CHECK!
4th goal- 180 which means hitting the 50 lbs. lost mark! Check!
5th goal- Switching to size goals now more than pounds goals. Goal is to make it to size 12, at whatever weight that happens. CHECK!
6th goal- Size 10! (can't even believe this is possible!)
7th goal- Size 8 and MAINTAIN!

It is a tie between feeling my arm muscles for the first time since 2002 (I lay in bed flexing and congratulating myself now) even though they aren't visible yet and being able to, without thinking, sit and play with my nephew in a catcher's crouch without falling over or straining to get up.

I have just begun this journey but I have to tell you something that hit me the other night. Friends came over, brought a bottle of wine. I had bought a small dessert. I had only one glass of wine and one serving of dessert. After they left there was about one glass of wine left over and one serving of dessert. At first I thought I should save this. Then I thought, no. I don't need it and I threw away everything. No regrets, no cravings, etc. I can't tell you how good that felt!
