Non-scale victory

Monday, November 26, 2012

The scale hasn't budged in quite some time, and it's easy to get discouraged. But this morning while doing my workout I noticed that my shelf is disappearing. Some of you will know what I am referring to when I say my 'shelf'. I take after my Mother's side of the family. The women tend to be short-waisted with big behinds. Well, for quite awhile there, I had a shelf above my behind that could hold a few knick knacks to say the least. Today, I noticed its no longer there. It's mostly a nice downward slope. Hurrah! And another victory, I have successfully maintained a 45 lb weight loss for 6 months. While, I'd definitely like to see that number go lower, this is a major accomplishment in itself. I've got to give myself a few kudos and then take the next step along this journey.

    Congratulations on both accounts. It is always very rewarding to see those NSV, sometimes they are the motivation we need to keep pushing.

Good luck on your continued journey.
