Those Little NSV's That Make Me Smile


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Saturday, January 21, 2012

So, it has been three weeks since I gave this another go. In those three weeks, I have continued to eat very healthy and increase my exercise. The first two weeks, I managed to lose thirteen pounds and this last week the scale screeched to a stop.

You know what? I don't care! You know why? Because I am seeing some amazing NSV's that are real proof of all of the hard work that I am putting in. Here's a list just to name a few...

1) When I looked in the mirror this morning, I saw the shape of a face that was not mine. My chin is becoming more prominent and my face more angular. Yeah for jawlines and chins!

2)As I was walking through the house this morning, I felt extra tall. Why is that you ask? Because my posture has become much straighter and my frame stronger. WooHoo for walking tall!!!

3) Last weekend, I walked outdoors and accomplished three miles and was pooped out. Today, five miles accomplished and could have went further if I had not had to go pick up my daughter. I felt like Rocky Balboa. I threw my arms in the air and felt on top of the world. YES...for increased endurance!!!

4) As I was gazing into the mirror putting on my clothes this morning, what did I see but these hole beneath my bra. Holes where fat used to reside but no longer does. So long fat cells!!!

These are some of the amazing results that I have seen after three weeks of sticking to it. This is only the beginning baby! Brace for more NSV's to come!!!

    Non-scale victories are the best! Don't get me wrong, I like seeing the scale move (down) just as much as the next person. But I like it even more when I need to buy a new pair of pants because my old ones are too big, or when I can do more reps at the gym or use a heavier weight, or when I can do longer or harder cardio workouts.

emoticon for NSVs!
