I am forcing myself to write something positive about my NSV. The scale is sooo motivating and I am not losing inches either. I wrote a blog about a preference in losing one or the other and yes, I'd like to lose inches so that I could at least go down a pant size or two.
Anyway...I am going to do this positive "writing" from head to toe:
HAIR: It has grown a lot since working out and having to wash twice a week. Not only is moisture good for hair so is sweating/exercise.
FACE: Slimmed a little but nothing that is extremely noticeable however my skin is better which I assume is from drinking so much water.
NECK: This is the skinniest thing on my body and shows that I have lost weight more than anything!!!
CHEST: I can see my clavicle again...
ARMS: Bat wings still available but PURE muscle on top
FOREARMS: Slimmer and toned
WRIST: Smaller and can wear a lot of my old bangles
HANDS: I can wear my wedding ring again
STOMACH: My 3 (back around breast area, mid-section & kangaroo pouch) rolls are smaller
THIGHS: Toned on top but still flabby in the back so I'm hoping
KNEES: The old fat and dimples that were there is GONE! I no longer have joint issues and can walk up and down my stairs without a problem let alone jog. I live on the 2nd floor...yes, I had problems walking up and down 1 flight of stairs...whew I remember those days and am so happy they are gone!
CALVES: Toned as normal...always the first muscle to get toned since high school.
ANKLES: NO MORE PAIN
and hope to complete a 1/2 marathon in October!!!
FEET: They would swell so bad...ALL GONE!!! I can wear a decent wedge or hell if I want and am comfortable on my feet because I am not so heavy and my ankles support me!!!
Overall, I have a lot to be thankful for regarding NSV. Not to be a Debbie Downer...just wish the darn scale would move! I wish everyone the most continued success with both NSV & SV!
I can simplify my life and lighten my burdens by deciding realistically what I want to do and what I have time to do. (~_^)
