NSV - NON SCALE VICTORY

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

I HAVE BEEN A SPARK MEMBER FOR ABOUT A YEAR NOW AND AM JUST TUNING IN TO THE NON SCALE VICTORIES.

I HAD JUST HAD MY MIND SET ON LOSING WEIGHT, WAITING FOR THE SCALE TO STOP SEE-SAWING BACK AND FORTH.

THEN THE SAPPHIRE BIGGEST LOSER WINTER CHALLENGE TEAM ASKED US TO POST A NSV. WOW! BINGO BABY!

I POSTED THAT MY BELLY "SHELF" IS GETTING SMALLER AND SMALLER AND SOON I WILL HAVE NO PLACE TO REST MY BOOK WHEN I READ - HAHA

THEN TODAY I WEIGHED AND STAYED THE SAME AS LAST THE LAST TWO WEEKS, WHICH IS REALLY ALSO A NSV B/C I DIDN'T GAIN DURING T'GIVING, EVEN AFTER 2 SLICES OF CARROT CAKE WITH TONS OF CREAM CHEESE AND NUT FROSTING.

THEN, I ALSO MEASURED AND FOUND THAT SINCE JULY , I'VE LOST 3 POUNDS BUT TEN, COUNT THEM, TEN INCHES.

WE WERE ALSO ASKED TO DECORATE OUR SPARK TEAM PAGE IN SAPPHIRE BLUE, I DID, AND NOW I LOVE OPENING UP MY PAGE, IT HAS SOME NEAT C'MAS PICS ON IT...I COUNT IT AS A NSV.

I LIKE THIS NSV STUFF. IF YOU HAVEN'T TRIED IT, YOU MIGHT ENJOY IT!!!

    Linda what a great blog! It's so wonderful to see how much you are embracing your NSV, they are just as important as your scale victories !! This is something that I personally have been learning to recognize for the past 6 months or so.

I'm so excited we're members of the fabulous Sapphire Beauties team

    I will check it out as well. I am pretty much in control of Thanksgiving since it is at my house. When I had one guest offer to bring Yams with marshmallows Ewwww! I told her we were having mashed sweet potatoes but she sure could help with those when she arrives. She liked the idea. WE are having lots of salads to help those who have the sweet cravings and pie at the end but I'm having yogurt and blueberries Yum.

    I'll look at it for sure! A lot of what will be available is out of my hands this year as the whole famn damily will be bringing food to the table. So far, my big contribution will be the homemade cranberry sauce that will have a whole lot less sugar than in previous years.

By the way, miss hearing from you!

    I'm guessing that for the majority of people this isn't really going to be an issue. And it won't be one for me, for sure, because I am needle-phobic and have avoided every vaccination I could possibly have so far.

    Very scary. It makes one wonder what else we don't know about. Thanks for sharing.

    I was worried about swine flu, actually I have been exposed to it last year and one of my clients still suffers side effects.. I sat beside her and gave TD stockings on her every day for weeks.. I vacummed and drank from her glasses she touched..

If we exercise common sense and washing our hands this virus don't effect strong and healthy people.. All the cases in denmark of people dying, well they have cancer, or were going to die- the virus invaded their body when their immunesystem crashed... Many people whom don't normally get vaccinated I notice they get sick as dogs.. Which supports my theories don't try to fix something not broken or just the just incase method..
It can back fire.. Denmark is left with a lot of flu vaccinations they don't have a clue to use. In tough times thats money do the financial drain..
Also most of the influenza we get in denmark are triple strength- they are around all year around.. No epidemic in denmark just a couple of feathers made to a whole chicken..
