Question What are your non-scale goals?

What are some of your non-scale goals? Have they helped you in your journey to lose pounds and inches?

A few of my non-scale goals:
Have people notice that I've lost weight- This is starting to happen.
Mini-NSG- Run a .5 mile- Accomplished last week
Run a mile without jogging or walking (I have exercise-induced asthma so this is harder for me than it would be for most people.)
Run a 10 minute mile
Run a mile faster than I did in high school (9:21)
Do ten perfect push-ups in a row- I'm getting pretty close.
Hold the plank position for a full minute with ease- Again, I'm close. I can do it, but it's a challenge.

I can soooo relate to Beach Patrol!! Those are a few of my goals too. Weight loss is hard, but when you do reach those small goals it's so rewarding!!! Still trying to get there!!!

Ooo good ones! I forgot about a couple of NSGs I've already accomplished.

Lose the arm fat- Did it this month!
Wear a size 5 dress I had in the back of my closet- Wore it to a wedding the 4th week of September
New NSG: Look good in that dress (minus some arm, upper boob and belly fat I had in Sept.)- May be at that point now. Need to check later.

Oh, I love these types of threads. Every time I post to one it reminds me of why I am doing this. OK, here are mine --

> Wear a pair of leggings and not worry if my shirt or sweater is riding up above my thights and butt

> Finally see what I really look like in the mirror and become blind to the phantom fat

> Believe someone when they say I have a nice body. I am still 10 pounds over average but those 10 pounds still make me feel fat.

> Wearing a bikini - of sorts. I'll never be able to wear bikini bottoms on account of my stretch marks and cellulite but I want to show off a flat tummy and smooth back.

My wish for all of you lovely ladies that you reach your NSV's!

1. To be able to walk into a store and buy a bra rather than having to order special sizes off of the Internet. Just try to get one to fit.

2. To be able to wear pretty clothes and not have to go around in ugly stuff that looks like it was made out of my grandmother's wallpaper

I love reading these kinds of posts.

Here are some of my goals:

1. To increase my stamina so that I can go hiking with a friend. There's a lot of beautiful scenery around here.
2. To have more control over my eating and to feel less like an addict.
3. To be able to dress better.
