Towels. Back at my heaviest weight, there was a point where I had purchased BEACH towels - those very long and wide ones - just so I could get out of the shower and wrap it around me securely and covering everything important. Even when I bought bathroom towels, I got very large ones.
Anyway, I didn't really pay attention to the change because I've been using the gym's towel service for months now (it's easier than hauling two large towels every day) and their towels are skimpy to begin with. But this past weekend I had to wash one of the larger ones because I'd dried off the landlord's dog after a walk in the rainy weather.
It was so big around me.
I think the most amazing thing to me was realizing how completely I didn't think about being "too big" because I could just buy bigger towels.
Another NSV has to do with a flight of stairs I climb any time I go to a particular light rail stop. There's around 70+ steps and they're broken up with a couple of landings. I remember when I'd hurry up the first set of steps, slow down on the second, and practically plod up the third, breathing hard for a while, even after getting to the benches and sitting down.
Yesterday, I walked briskly to the stop, trotted all the way up all the stairs (just missing a train so I ended up waiting on the next) ... and noticed as I sat down that I wasn't even breathing hard.
