NonScale Victory


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, March 10, 2013

I think I am not alone when I say, my perception of my body is not the truth in some ways. I know I am healthy. I know I am strong. Am I thin or slender or happy with my body?

I went dress shopping yesterday for a wedding at the end of the month. It's the one mentioned in my 20lbs in 20 weeks challenge. If you've been reading my almost weekly blogs about it, you know that my progress is S-L-O-W. emoticon Of course, I am using the emoticon mostly as an indication of my progress. Let's just say that the scale dial is moving slowly or not at all. Up-down-same-down-up-same! I had noticed that one pair of pants seemed loose but of course, that was due to laundering...........

Anyway, the wedding is coming quickly and I had to start looking. I told my husband that I'd get spanx to pull "it" all in. emoticon

Well yesterday I had an attitude adjustment. A Nonscale Victory. I put on a size 10 dress and it looked great! Even my problem area didn't look as bad as it does when I look in the mirror.

Funny thing is that a year or maybe two years ago I bought a dress for our anniversary dinner and when I looked at it last night it was a 12. Cool!
Happy dance!

Tomorrow my trainer is doing measurements for me. It was suppose to be on Friday but the snow cancelled that. It'll be interesting to see those results.

So here are two photos. The first one is the dress that I didn't get but honestly they are both the same except for the pattern.
The second photo doesn't look as good because I'm too close, IMHO, but hubby says it looks great! emoticon

    emoticon A worthy investment is one of those scales that tell you the big picture, BMI, real age, weight, calories, and some other numbers. Its helping me. It may help others and it well worth it.

  Ten is a reasonable size and improvement. It is not how long it takes to get there, it's that so do get there... Good for all your effort. although the numbers don't always move as fast as we wish. emoticon

    What a fantastic, validating surprise! Good work on staying motivated even when things did not *seem* to be happening. It just goes to show that our bodies work in mysterious ways.

    I too seem to define myself by the scale, however, when I look in the mirror I can see my body changing even though the scale doesn't move much. Congrats. emoticon
