Talking Any New NSV's?

It's been a while since we've had a thread about our NSV.

I just have to say that tonight I'm going out and since my clothes are all kind of big I went to go try on some tops. So I went to the juniors department (and of course I haven't fit those clothes in forever). I was a little apprehensive about trying on anything since I've gotten my feelings hurt in the juniors department before.
Well...guess what? I was able to fit a Large top! It fits perfectly! No bulges, no pulling the top down or up...it just fits! I had no idea that it would even work on me.
And when I was shopping none of the sales people looked at me crazy as if to say why are you shopping in this department. It was such a great feeling. I finally now have the option of misses or juniors sizes.

And...for the first time since...forever I have boobs small enough to go braless in the trendier tops! I have no idea what bra size I am...I'm still wearing my old bras which are 36C's...I really think I'm in a very small B cup. One of these days I will give in and buy some new bras. I'm so

Woo hoo Healthyme!

I bought a shirt at Body Central (if you don't have those where you live it's a store for minature cute little girls, like a Wet Seal, or Charlotte Ruse)!!! I was terrified to go in the dressing room. They didn't have any extra larges and plus they make their stuff so small, but I did, and it fit, in fact all three of the shirts I took fit! I guess I am not extra large anymore and YAY!!!

AND my waist measurement is under 30!!!

congradulations on fitting into smaller clothing. That is a good feeling, it makes it seems like all this dieting and hard work is really working.

I've got one! I bought a pair of awesome pants on sale a long time ago...size 20. They've NEVER been able to fit me, but I've been trying so hard, cuz I wanted to fit into them for the concert next weekend...and they FIT! Not super comfortably, but I can wear them without dying! Granted my other pants in 22 are just starting to fit, but HEY! I'll take what I can get!!!

I can walk quickly without fatigue or panting for several minutes! And I bought a shirt that is a 16 -- I have not been a 16 in about three years.

Congrats everyone

I actually had 2 NSVs yesterday. I bought a new pair of jeans and they are a size 22. I admit they are the stretchy kind.... and there are still size 24 pants that don't fit me. But it's proof that I'm moving on down, so I'm happy.

I wore the jeans later on when I went out with 2 of my very close friends from high school. One of them hasn't seen me since February and he's like "you look different." The other one thought I looked exactly the same, but I'll take what I can get... I told them I had been losing weight. It's the first time I've talked about it with any of my friends. It kind of makes me nervous that it's noticeable now, but happy at the same time.

I have a few. I saw some friends last weekend that I hadn't seen in a few months, and they said how much better I looked than the last time they saw me. (Of course, there are nicer ways to put that but it was still flattering) And I just got new jeans in a size 12! And if I'm allowed to mention scale victories here, my weight/BMI just went down into the "overweight" range rather than obese, and I'm more than halfway there!

My waist is getting more toned so i got myself 3 shirts the other day, one of them being a small and it was a bit short but it STILL looked great!

Also the place had a FULL size dressing room where everyone undresses in front of one another, it is one big room surrounded by mirrors [kind of like at a fashion show backstage] and i felt comfortable for the first time! Did i mention i was wearing a thong and had to take my pants off to try on another pair?

LockItUp - hahaha. Yea i'm surprised to see something like that in America. [I lived in Europe half my life]

It was at this store called Loehmanns, they have designer clothes and shoes for super cheap prices.

My latest NSVs are gym-related...

After finishing a really hard treadmill run the other day the woman next to me asked me if I ran for the local university. I said no, just for myself. And she said "well I just want you to know that I admire you." Now it makes me run ever harder knowing people are watching lol.

Same day I went on to lift weights and the gym owner was showing someone around the machines and remarked that she should hang out with me if she wanted to get a good workout. And she agreed saying yeah she had noticed how hard I trained.

Made me feel good even if the scale isn't cooperating with me.

Hmm I dont for sure know what NSV means but I have an idea.

Two weeks ago before vacation I went clothes shopping for the first time since January (when I really knew I had to lose weight). I have gone down 2 sizes and am back to a 13. My goal is to at least get back to a 9 which I wore in high school. The only thing that sucks is that I have no clothes that fit. I have like 2 pairs of capris and of course all my workout clothes. But other than that only one pair of pants fits. I just dont want to spend the money when I am just going to have to buy new clothes in a few months anyway.

But woo hoo I can shop again at American Eagle and Pac sun!
