Some (small) NSVs!


Wednesday, January 30, 2013

So I have only lost 11 pounds (16 since my highest) but I have definitely noticed some (small) changes:

-Almost no heartburn! I used to have heartburn all of the time, and would have to take tums and/or pepcid every day.
-Mood improvement! It could be finally seeing some light at the end of the tunnel or just seeing a number I haven't seen in a long time on the scale, but I have generally have been more happier and positive. Even my husband has noticed it.I also am changing my language from "I hope I can" "I will try" etc to "When I do this" "I can do this!"
-Clothes fitting a little looser. I haven't dropped a size yet (Currently wear a 2X-3X) but my normal shirts are starting to feel a littler looser!
-Making better choices. I still have my bad days.. I can't do without pizza! But, instead of loading up bad ingredients I get it with less cheese, grilled chicken and load it up with Veggies! I also have not been craving fast or fried food as much. I also completely cut out soda and IT FEELS AWESOME! I love drinking hot tea now! I also sick back and ask myself "Do I really want to eat this? Am I actually hungry?" I have incorporated more fruits and veggies into my diet..especially when I used to rarely eat any!

I can't wait to see where my journey takes me next.

    emoticon That's awesome! It's those non-scale victories that make me smile the most!

Don't say that you "only" lost 11 pounds so far. Celebrate that! You've lost 11 pounds already! That's amazing! You're working hard and making good choices, and it's paying off. Congrats!

    i think the small habit changes that not only help us loose but also keep the weight off are best. especially when they give us other health benefits.

    I love your attitude and all your positive changes / victories! Those changes will serve you very well over the long haul. Be especially proud of losing the soda in exchange for tea!
