NSV of the Week - whats yours?

Recommended Posts

today was the first day that we actually needed a coat out here in So. Cali.  I have a great new coat that I was able to zip up.  I don't have to pretend any longer to be warm enough that I don't need to zip up my coat (translate that to can't zip it up around my stomach)

OMG! Nice to know I wasn't the only one who tried that tactic in the winter! It is a wonderful feeling of being all bundled up and warm in a coat showing winter who is the boss now!

I weigh less than my drivers license says I do.

 

I haven't been in the 180's since before I have had kids....AMAZING! I have worked my tush off...literally! Less than 50 lbs to goal!

 

Last year this time I was 292-297. I remember going to Disney Land and being proud that I had already lost weight but gained 7 pounds that week!

 

It hasn't been easy...Everyday I fight to lose this mental and physical weight...But I can tell you that the 189's is such a huge milestone...

 

Now on to 179's to no longer be obese...My December goal! Can I ask Santa for that?

 

 

 

LOVE THE MESSAGE ON THE SCALE! I am going to add something inspiring to mine since it can be a positive moment or a discouraging one! Thank You for the idea!

My NSV,,, I honestly quit drinking and been sober a month. I'm very proud of this accomplishment.  :)

I am so excited for you.  I am still early out, but have found that making little changes in my life has made a world of difference.  I am rooting for you all the way, mama!

I just ate out at the restaurant we went to the night before my pre-op diet... Where we had my food funeral. The difference between what I ate then and what I had tonight is amazing. My friend and I shared two appetizers: fried calamari and mozzarella cheese ball. No pasta, no problem! I was satisfied and very happy to note how much my habits have changed! :)

They didn't make me cake!!

It's my birthday and I half expected a big gooey cake waiting for me at my moms house tonight but they didn't make me one! I think they finally get it :)

My gramma got me a huge spice rack with hanging glass bulbs full of 16 different spices, and my parents and sisters got me a pair of black boots so now I can finally wear a few of the outfits/dresses that karabelle gave me! (I felt I needed black boots to complete the ensemble ;) )

I feel like such a lucky duck today!

The miracle in this is that you were happy that you did't have cake.  You got this.  Happy b-day.

Happy Belated Birthday!!!!  It's great that your family is finally getting your journey!  The idea of big gooey cake kinda makes my stomach turn.  Wait, I cannot believe I just typed that!!!

I had blood work the other day.  My cholesterol is down 22 points!  Overall number, HDL and LDL all within normal range for the first time I can remember. 

 

The only problem with my labs before surgery was my LDL was a little high.

I went to a party last night that was out of town.  When we got to the hotel, I pulled out my dress, which I bought a month or so ago, and found out that it was too big!  Not so big that I couldn't wear it because it was stretchy, but holding my arms out to the side showed at least a couple of inches of extra fabric on each side.  Amazing!

Awe,,TY so much ladies. I am still sober and have no plans on going back to the bottle. With my health in jeopardy and the daily pain....I'd be just stupid to.

Haven't posted in a while and I've had tons of NSVs. Here are a few that stand out...

I can wrap up completely in a normal sized towel - with no gaps, totally covered. I used to always use a beach towel!

I'm wearing size 13 cords with leather ties up the side that I've had sense 1999 and haven't worn sense 2004. They're kinda stretchy so I think they're more like a size 15 really, but still. Oh, and my nice sued jacket fits too, so yeah- totally busting out the remnants of my high school wardrobe.

I like to sit in my chair at work with my leg tucked up under me... and I can.

I remembered the other one. My hands! They have bones in them! And I can ALWAYS see them! Oh, my clavicles are always visible too! I don't have to push them forward to be able to see then anymore.
