This can be anything that has advanced you.
Perhaps you got a compliment you didn't expect. Maybe you were able to fit into a smaller size.
Our victories don't always happen on the scale. It's a good practice to try to find a NSV every week, no matter what. When I was a receptionist, I can't tell you the number of members every week who would walk up to the scale and announce "Ugh, I don't know why I'm doing this I had such a bad week."
"Why?" I would ask.
"Well, my sister was in town and we went to dinner one night and had drinks and went out dancing ..."
"Sounds like you had a good time."
"We did. I was so much fun."
"That seems like a pretty good week to me. If my brother came to town and we caught a baseball game and had hot dogs and beer, it would be great!"
If they couldn't think of anything I would remind them that they had gotten together enough courage to get on the scale after a bad week. Then they'd get on the scale and ring up a 1.5 pound loss. Go figure.
So what was your NSV this week?
