A non-scale victory first thing in the morning

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!

    Yes! It is magnificent! My great non scale victory is that my size 28 pants are now dropping off my behind in the back side. I love it. I am already getting rid of two pairs of them! And size 26/28 ones fit more nicely than they did when I had gained back my weight a few years ago. I am psyched! Non scale victories are great! Thanks for the wonderful reminder!

I love the way you are noticing all the changes taking place in your body. Just think...if you were going strictly by the scale, you would be all focused on that number and would probably miss all these beautiful NSV's!

    emoticon to you for your non-scale victory.

My victory will be to feel good- healthy wise and about myself.

Have a great week end.

    That is so wonderful! Isn't it great when things sneak up on you and then smack you upside the head?
I hope your day is as great as your morning was.
