I would like to be able to share a scale victory, but the only real scale victory that I can announce is that I haven't put ON any weight...

But now on to NSVs.

My sister (who is tall and thin, and must be getting rid of "fat" clothes again), has been cleaning out her closet again, and I benefited from this. The NSV is that one of her pairs of pants was too big for me.

Last night at J#2, I ran into a woman whom I hadn't seen in probably 10 years or more. I really like her. Anyway, after hugs, she exclaimed "You look great! You've lost so much weight!" Yep, this is true (I'm at least 40 pounds down from my highest non-pregnant weight over the past several years. This not such an accomplishment when you consider the facts that it's been over 22 years since I've been pregnant, and that I've lost most of the weight in the last 7 years).

I am always unfailingly gracious when someone says this, understanding that she really isn't saying "You Used To Be So Fat!!!"

NSV (?): I think that I am having body issues. I ordered a woman's extra large tshirt from When it arrived and made me look like a little girl in her daddy's shirt, Woot was kind enough to send me another, smaller shirt (large). This one fits much better, and is also too big. I sure didn't want to try to exchange it again, as Woot 1) doesn't do returns or exchanges (which I didn't know when I emailed them) and 2) was sweet enough to just send me another shirt because I am a "valued customer." Everyone should patronize Great shirts, inexpensive, clever, good customer service. Order your "true size" and you'll be fine.

NSV (?): I am 5 pounds up from my Lowest Weight Ever, still recovering from the lousy fall 2012 through lousy spring 2013; and am 11 pounds from my Ultimate Weight Goal. I wanted to be at an UWG by 2/09, and, I guess that I was, because I keep changing it downward.

NSV: I am still cleaning out my closet and getting rid of clothes that will Never Fit Me Again because they are too big.

I am trying to rewire my brain back to the 3 pounds at a time goal, rather than looking at the UWG. I am finding 11 pounds daunting, and have been going up and down a pound from here. A new SP pal told me that I'm practicing maintenance. I hadn't thought of it that way. It was a positive thought.

Onward and Downward!!
