I think the biggest success for me was the day that my doctor told me I no longer had to take the 4-5 insulin shots I took each day. I'm telling you I sat down and just cried my eyes out I was so happy. Another thing was being able to cross my legs, I just get so tickled when I can do that. I fell a while back and my sweet hubby was trying to help me up and I would tell him be careful I'm heavy, I don't want to hurt you. Before I knew it he had picked me up and had me in the house. I know I've lost all this weight but I still think of myself as big, does anybody else do that?

OMG! I wore a size 2 pair of white capris today to work -- size 2! and white to boot! And I was told I looked "super cute" by my daughter, and "sexy" by my hubby -- Thank you, thank you -- I will take the compliments and say "THANK YOU!"

This is a great message thread thanks for starting it! NSVs are really important to me right now because I have been at the same weight for eight weeks. My surgical team and personal trainer believe it relates to a rue shaping from dat to muscle....
NSV list during this time: size 16 WP pants are now 2 inches too big at the waist and saggy in the butt/legs. I am in a Misses size large and size 14 pants/skirts. This means no more plus size department for me. I can do an hour long interval training workout. This includes running intervals. Lots of compliments on my healthy look, glowing complexion, and positive energy. Smaller shoe size (who knew?..)

Haven't had surgery... yet. Still waiting on the date. But, my favorite (so far) NSV, is being able to get in and out of our car without having to lean the seat back. And, being able to drive without the steering wheel rubbing on my gut!

That's a memorable moment Christine!! And no more bumping elbows and shoulders with the guy next to ya!
My latest has been adding some jogging to my daily walk. With chronic back pain and sore knees, it was out of the question until a month ago. I started out slowly and have been picking up speed. NEVER did I think I was going to be able to run again. Now I know it's possible.
I had a wonderful suggestion that I just HAD to act on right away...opening up a space for us to talk about those magical, memorable NSV's (Non-Scale Victories). They are just as much a part of the WLS journey as watching the numbers move downward at our weigh-ins, but somehow, they mean oh, so much more.
Take a moment and share YOUR favorite NSV's...and tell us about the NSV's you know may be just around the corner for you. Who did you tell? How did you celebrate?
I'll kick it off...at one point, I was doing a fair bit of traveling for business. It was a big embarassment for me to have to ask for a seat belt extender when flying. Oh, the precious moment, on a flight out West, that I realized that I didn't need it any more!!!!!!!!!!!! No, I didn't leap up and down whoo-hooing, but boy, I surely wanted to :-)
