NSV...with an SV...update week 11...

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

I am on a "new year" roll. Week 11 I have a -1.5 lb loss = 14 lbs for 2014. That's a scale victory!

But the real victory...the NSV is that looking back at diary entries shows that this is the first time in almost three years that I am at this "place," showing a losing trend in the early months of the year. I am usually battling during this season fighting off till I have more time during the late spring and summer to plan, track, exercise more. I get very stressed at the end of the school year and it seems there are always work or family "issues" that send me into an emotional eating frenzy. But that has not happened for a while. I just realized it when I verbalized it to close friends that I have not had a "binge" in 3 months! That's another big NSV!

I have now lost my 14 lb gain that accumulated over Oct-Dec. now just 3 lbs to the goal I set almost 3 years ago.


This time I want to truly maintain my loss. I can gain weight. I can even lose weight. It is time to prove to MYSELF that I can maintain my weight.

emoticon I am finally "getting it" thanks to the stories of maintainers here on Spark! It seems like just when I need "???something???" I happen onto a story or new friend that sets me in the right direction. Not always an easy direction or one I wanted to here but never the less, a true story of a real person that has done it or is doing it.

Cheers and Kudos to maintainers!!! emoticon

Here's to a new day, a new week, a new month, and a new year - 2014! emoticon

    Losing 14 pounds in 2014 is gret..and being only 3 pounds from your goal weight is also excellent. Your NSV of not bingeing in 3 months is an important step. I have no doubt that you will maintain this loss. You are doing great.
