NSVs for motivation - any ideas?
Sunday, June 23, 2013
Although here it is the middle of winter, and rather bleak, I have decided to steal a march on my planned spring push to release weight. So I am looking for some NSVs to help with motivation.
Last round of weight reduction saw aches and pains disappear, bye bye to stiffness and hello to putting on my shoes more easily. I am more agile and flexible and fit in chairs with room to move. On the plane the other day I noticed that there was a lot more room on my seatbelt, and I am fitting into just my seat, not creeping into the space next door. No doubt to the relief of my travelling companion!
Sparkies can you think of other NSVs I can look out for to help me celebrate as I release the next ten kilos? It is SO motivating to feel the difference in my body, I find it gets me through the hard times as I restrict my eating and pay close attention to the types of food in my diet.
Your suggestions of what I might look out for would be gratefully received.
Sorry, MNAboy, NSV= non scale victories. I prefer mine to be things I notice about my body and what it can do, but they can be anything that makes you think, "yes!" about your success in releasing weight or any activities that you can now do or experiences you have had because of your pursuit of a healthier lifestyle.
