A comment on my previous blog was very uplifting and is helping me to change my thinking. It concerned NSV's. You ask, what is "NSV." This stands for non-scale victories. When I know that I haven't been as vigilant as I should have regarding my eating habits, I find myself dreading my weekly weigh-in. Has this happened to you? I know it happens to me because even though I KNOW that the scale doesn't tell you everything, it is still hard for me not to get hung up on that number!
So now I am learning to love my NSV's. One great result is that my clothes are fitting so much better, in fact, some of them are positively just too big for me. When I exercise I have so much more energy than when I started in June. In fact, the benefits of losing weight and exercising have improved my life for the better in many ways. Not only am I more energetic, but I am a happier more contented soul. I've asked myself why this is so. My answer is simple. I made the decision that I can lose the weight, I can change my poor eating habits, and I can exercise. Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is a promise, and all I have is today. So I try to make good choices for today. That is all I really have to do, make my choices for today!
So today, I choose to celebrate my NSV's!
