I'm down in weight and feel fantastic but one of my biggest NSVs is getting my daughter off some allergic foods and having my son and husband join in. The guys don't eat as cleanly as we do, but I know they appreciate having healthier meals and less junk in their food. My son (17) just has to eat three times as much as the rest of us!
Reactive (so far) to goat cheese, chocolate and lentils.
I sing in our church choir; and I and others in my choir have a problem with phlegm in the throat on Sunday mornings. We've taken "Singers Remedy" drank water etc. This morning I noticed that since starting the Plan I have a clear throat! I think it was the cow's milk. Needless, to say I told everyone about the Plan!

One of the reasons I joined this Spark People team/forum is because I too am cycling back and forth between a couple of pounds and I know I am NOT at my body's setpoint. I feel better. I am fitting into my clothing better. My severe to mild sinus headaches that went up and down with the barometer have gone away since starting The Plan in mid-January. (Here in Arizona we have our winter monsoon season in January and I had very little, if any, problem with my sinuses hurting.
I am menopausal (no monthly cycle) and wonder if that is part of the reason my weight is not budging or if I have reactive issues that using MSM for Lyn-Genet's suggested 6 week period will eliminate.
I have hot flashes and wonder if I need a consult with LN and her team to see if there is something I can do to resolve that issue. As you can imagine, in Arizona, we keep our air conditioning at 78 degrees or higher during the summer and I find that my sleep is an issue when the temperature is 68 or higher!
These are the primary reasons I started The Plan and joined your team.

For me, I know my weight loss is not showing yet. My official weigh in is tomorrow and I have lost approximately 10 lbs since the start of January. I know, not a huge number, but at least it is coming off. My pants are not quite as tight – so that is something.
The thing that I have noticed is my husband’s attitude. He hates the food I am eating, turns his nose up every time, but…
I think he is actually proud of me for sticking with the diet. I have been really adamant about eating healthy and making good choices, especially out at restaurants (everyone else had a big bowl of pasta and I had salad and low sodium soup). Honestly, he hasn’t said anything about being proud, but I can see it in the way he looks at me. I think that is a huge victory!

I thought I would create this forum for some of us (including me) who are stuck between that same 2-3lbs that won't seem to go away.
I started at 191lbs and my lowest is 182lbs. I keep going between 182-184lbs and it is frustrating. If I could just break out of the 180s, that would be an accomplishment and to be so close is killing me lol
Anyway, it can be uplifting to look at any NSV we may have.
I can wear my size 12 comfortably again. I feel lighter although the scale says opposite. Being bloated is no longer a problem.
What about you? What are your NSVs?

I can simplify my life and lighten my burdens by deciding realistically what I want to do and what I have time to do. (~_^)
