Today I want to talk to you about non-scale victories, otherwise referred to as NSV.
I have been maintaining my weight around 243-244 lbs for over two weeks now, and that's due mostly in part from me not counting my calories for a few days in a row.
Despite all that, I had a NSV yesterday. I put on some pants that I haven't worn in a few weeks and was pleasantly surprised to find that they felt much more loose than they did a few weeks ago. I tried on another pair of pants (just to make sure it wasn't a fluke) and those pants were also wearing more comfortably than before. I did a little happy dance in my newly loose pants, and started my day out right, counting calories, like a good girl.
I think this NSV was just the thing I needed to get out of my funk, and to not go another day without counting my calories. It was a wake up call, a good and happy one, at that.
Yesterday, Piper and I ran a couple errands together. Piper helped me vote, and she was real happy that they gave her a sticker.
After voting, we went to the mall to get Piper some new boots (thanks Nina) and to walk around.
We spent a couple hours at the mall since there was so much to do. There are a couple places for kids to play in our mall and we had a blast!
Piper and I played until lunch time, and ate Subway together in the food court. I was proud of myself for picking Subway over the other less-healthy choices, too.
Today, I'm going to work on staying within my calories for the second day in a row. I am going to have my husband hide the scale from me again until Sunday, this time. I am going to bask in my non-scale victory until then.
Readers, what are some non-scale victories that you've experienced?
