An Inadvertent Non-scale Victory!


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, May 31, 2013



At the beginning of May, I tried on two pairs of capri pants at Walmart. The first pair was olive colored, and fit me perfectly. The second pair was gray colored, and a little tight on me. I bought both pairs, with the hope that the gray ones would fit me in a couple of months. After I got them home, I hung them up in the closet and haven't worn them since.



This morning when I got up, I realized that we were completely out of dog food...and my dog was hungry! It was early, and still kind of dark out. I decided I'd just get dressed and go to the store before everyone else woke up. So I got dressed without putting on the bedroom light...I reached into the closet for the olive capri pants and a t shirt. When I went into the bathroom to fix my hair and brush my teeth, I didn't even pay attention to what I was wearing. But when I headed out to the car, I suddenly I noticed that I was not wearing the olive capri pants...I was wearing the gray ones, the ones that were a little tight on me at the beginning of the month when I bought them! And they fit perfectly! I actually said "woohoo!" out loud when I realized this!




What a great NSV! I actually had a little bounce to my step when I went to the grocery store, because I was so happy about fitting into the smaller size pants! Now I just have to find my store receipt, because I'm taking the too big ones back! I need to get a smaller size!

    I think sometimes the non scale victories are even better than the scale finally moving simply because they are the real life applications. Nice.

    That is a great feeling. I have had times where I bought something in hopes to fit into and when I tried it on it was a little to big. It happened with a pair of jeans. I bought size 10 and when I went to try them on, they were so big I had to return them for an 8. emoticon

    What a wonderful NSV!...Those are actually the ones I like the most sometimes. What an amazing journey you are on, Pixie. Every time I look at what you have accomplished it gives me hope that I can do it too. I still haven't quit...still fighting...still trying to move forward since I have been stagnating for way too long. Congratulations on wearing those smaller capris and isn't it great that you have to bring the "big" ones back. Good for you.....you are getting closer to your goal and it is fantastic!
