Never saw this NSV coming!

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

As I sat here watching the rain, I thought I had to do something productive. So on my list of things to get done was clean out a closet. This has been on my To Do list for 2 years! So not excuses, I went to the back bedroom closet and there were a bunch of old "skinny" clothes staring back at me. Do you have one of these? A closet full of clothes with hopes that someday you will get back into them? I had dresses, blazers, jeans, pants, jackets..... all from 10 - 15 years ago when I was in Size 14's. Some still had the tags left on them.... too tight when I bought them. You know.... I'll lose a few pounds and get into these.. yeah right!

So, thinking that I wouldn't have to go shopping for smaller clothes for a while, I started trying them on. And trying them on. And trying them on. My smile got bigger, and Bigger and BIGGER as the Goodwill pile got bigger, and Bigger and BIGGER!!! I ended up with 2 Petite Blazers, a jacket and one pair of jeans. The rest were Too BIG!

Happy Dance!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I have been in a bit of a funk lately and just couldn't seem to snap out of it. I think my Skinny Angel was watching over me today and decided to sprinkle some "Happy" and "Motivate" dust on me. This has been one of the best Non-Scale Victories I have had so far!

What are some of your NSV's? Let's Celebrate! emoticon

    OMG that's fantastic !!!! Silly as it sounds I remember when I could finally get a towel wrapped around me and tuck it in !!! That was a tru sign of success to me too. I have had several others since that one that I will make a list of and make a blog about myself soon. Thannks for the idea.

Hope you have a fabulous rest of the week, you are AWESOME !!!!

    I still have a bunch of "fat" clothes in the basement that have to go to Goodwill. It looks like Sunday is going to be a rainy and cool day so I will likely be in the basement doing that, bottling my home made Pinot Grigio, and vacuuming up dirt and BUGS!

    Congrats! Nothing...not even the scale can beat the thrill of trying on old tight clothes that now are too loose!

Love your acorns by the way ;-)

    That is AWESOME!!! So happy for you!


I had a non scale victory a month or so ago when I was actually able to fit into a pair of my teenage daughter's blue jeans. It's fortunate she and I prefer different colors or there would be a lot of confusion sorting laundry.
