Today's NSV was from a client of mine at work. Since I saw her last, I have lost over 70lbs. She was talking to a colleague of mine, who called me over to let me know that she was waiting for me. I went over, and my client said, 'that's not Tanya!!!' to my colleague. I said 'yes it is me', and the look on her face was priceless...she didn't even recognize me.

She's actually the 3rd person to say that if they saw me on the street they wouldn't recognize me in the last 3 weeks.

Today I put on a pair of jeans that I've avoided like the plauge since gaining back some weight in June/July. I was thinking that I hadn't lost back enough for them to fit yet, but I slid them on and buttoned with ease!

My non scale victory was being at the mall surrounded by ice cream, Mrs.Fields cookies and hot pretzel stands and not buying any of it. This is a great thread by the way.

Default Great job!

My non scale victory was buying a new book and actually starting over with a fresh approach! The book I purchased is called "100 Days of Weight Loss". I seems empowering and I'm hoping that I work with it and my WW program and finallyl break this barrier.
Buying the book and really starting over is a good thing for me. : )

My NSV this moring was noticing my stretch marks on my belly - now that is gross - but the good thing is that the skin is no longer stretched out! (Trying to pick out the positive)

I love reading all of these NSVs. it is really very inspiring - everyone is doing so well! And i love finding things other than the number on the scale to be proud of.

I have 2 to report, one from the past week and one for today.

Last week, I noticed that I am completing my usual route for jogging my dogs in a shorter amount of time (it is about 2 miles, and I was taking almost half an hour, now just about 20 minutes), so I added another half mile to the route.

This morning, I was *finally* able to comfortably wear my wedding ring. I haven't been able to get it one since Spring, 2010, midway through my pregnancy. I tried it, just for giggles, and it fit. YEAH! If I was a bit more hormonal, I probably would have cried.

Default stretch marks

The marks will fade and I think it is a good thing! Keep trying!

I hope the dogs don't mind

Noticing that you are faster at the exercise is AWESOME

When I was trying on pants at a thrift store I noticed that my belly sort of "hangs". Last week I noticed that even though the inches for my arm measurements don't seem to be going down there is a ton of extra skin on my upper arms that "hangs". I SOOO am NOT impressed! UGH!!

My NSV for today is eating breakfast, packing healthy low point snacks for work and planning my lunch. I went off plan with being sick and I haven't been completely honest in my tracking. I need to buck up and get back on track!!

Default Planning!

Great job! Planning ahead for even snacks and packing a healthy lunch is so important.
I think we should all learn from this. Plan each day, plan those snacks as well. Have fruit available so when the hungry horrors strike, you have something!

I just bought skinny jeans at Old Navy. They look GOOD.

I've already dropped two jeans sizes there, from a 16 to a 12.

I wish I could be buying "skinny jeans". Congratulations!

As for me, my NSV is simple. I stayed on plan and tracked for two days (huge for me) and went to a WW meeting yesterday.
I've not been to a meeting in about 3 or 4 weeks.
It feels good to be back. It will take awhile for that scale to move, but I feel a sense of power.

My NSV made me late for work this morning. Bought a suit in June (before WW) that was snug in the pants/shirt, jacket fit.

Went to wear it today and the pants fit perfectly, but both the shirt and the jacket were TENTS. I'll have to see about having them taken in - it is too nice of a suit to donate away.

Ended up changing clothes 3 times before I found something to wear. I guess I need to go through my closet.
