A non-scale victory first thing in the morning

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, October 19, 2012




Today is day 233 of my streak!

I had planned to sleep in this morning, but the sound of thunder woke me up before dawn. I was very cozy and comfortable, so I just rolled over onto my back and lay there listening to the rain. And then I suddenly had a non-scale victory! Before I even got out of bed!




Whenever I lay on my back in bed, I fold my hands together over my stomach. Before I started my streak, when I'd put my hands on my stomach, my elbows would dangle off to the side and not reach the bed.

As I've lost weight, of course my belly has gotten smaller. One of my goals has been to be able to fold my hands together on my stomach and have my elbows actually touch the bed.

Well, this morning as I lay there listening to the rain and trying to remember if I'd shut all the windows last night, I suddenly realized..."Hey....hey...my elbows are touching the bed!"

What a great non-scale victory! Perhaps my elbows have been touching the bed for a while now, and I just didn't notice. Thats the way it is with non-scale victories sometimes....they sneak up on you! I think sometimes I get so caught up with looking in the mirror to see a change that I don't notice when other signs of progress happen. But boy when I do notice...it sure feels great!

  I like your title. It's so apt. Non-scale victory. And yes, the elbow touching the bed - I can just see the picture and I applaud your effort. How very kind of you to get all of us to note the subtle improvements in our bodies!

  Like your first motivational message states, it's the small victories that makes the big ones worth while. One step and day at a time, Sweet Jesus! Congratulations on your victory as one is not more than the other as they all accomplish the main goal! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I love your NSV. I tried on a dress tonight that I expected to wear in 15 to 20 more pounds. It was way too big!! I'm going down in clothes faster than the scale is moving. That is great, because at first my size didn't seem to change much at all.

    HEY THAT IS SO GREAT A NONSCALE VICTORY THAT WE ALL LOOK FOR . I JUST STARTED TO BE ABLE TO SIT ON THE SCALE AT HEB GROCERY STORE AND MY ARMS ACTUALLY GO DOWN SO I CAN FIT ON SCALE WITH MY ARMS CLOSING OVER TO MY LAP. THIS IS REALLY WHAT WE ALL WANT TO HAVE OUR SIZE SHRINK. emoticon emoticon

    Congratulations and you're right about some of the changes sneaking up on us. It's probably a good idea for us to make a concerted effort just to take notice of the "little" things that make a huge difference.

Thanks for sharing.
