Default A Plethora of NSVs

I swear, these NSVs make all the "just saying no" to food that is off plan SO worth it!

1) When someone checked my ID, they did a double take and asked if it was really me (time to get a new ID weeee)

2) My historically fit friend and I made plans to go hiking next weekend. She said "you need to take it slow for me though, and we need to find an easy trail for me. I am going to hold you back..." - this is the girl who inspired me to start running a year ago

3) My doctor told me I should think about stopping weight loss now. When I told her I was still 15 pounds from being a normal BMI, she double checked my chart and said "you don't look overweight at all anymore". I guess all those toning exercises are working! Which leads me to:

4) I have shoulder, arm and back muscle definition. It looks so awesome! And they are hard as a rock! My legs are pretty rock hard too now. Too bad all the extra skin is hiding all these cool muscles.

5) My husband is loving on picking me up and I can actually wrap my legs around his waist and give him a big ol' smooch.

6) I was just able to zip up my goal pants for the first time. I think they need 5 more pounds before I can actually wear them out of the house though

Those are all awesome NSVs! You have been such an inspiration to me through my weight loss journey and have made me believe I can be as successful as you have been. I am really looking forward to my own NSVs. Thanks for staying committed and upbeat because it has helped me tremendously. Congratulations!!!

WOW!!! And I am NOT going to give advice on what weight you need to be at or when/if you need to stop losing weight, but... I think the quintessential example is the super-hot and super-buff Tiki Barber, whose BMI puts him in the obese category. I've linked to a BMI story that uses him as an example.

Since I trust that you are not using the BMI as the ultimate decision maker on when/if you will stop lose weight, though...

YAY for all of your amazing NSVs. You are an inspiration to all of us. So cool.

Thanks all for your kind words! I am pretty excited, and still working to get these last 25ish pounds off (it's slooow going I tell you what...)

And no, I am not using BMI as my goal per say; I do want to go down to the established 'normal' BMI for my height, but my ultimate goal is a little below that- as long as I feel and look good, that is. It is really all up in the air, although I do have a couple numbers in mind.

Bee - You are one of the 3FC members who inspire me daily. I am so amazed at your progress. I often look at your blog and every single time I do, I know that I would never have recognized you now if I had known you when you were heavy. You have really transformed yourself. It IS time for a new ID photo!

Lori Bell - I am also in awe of your success. You were losing and I assume posting at a time I was not a member in here, so I don't "know" you like i do some of the current losers. But I've seen your posts on occasion and just hope I'll do as well at maintaining.

Lin
