Non-Scale Victory Tally

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

The scale went up again slightly this week, so I am working to get my thinking back in line. I wanted to list all of my NSVs

Since June:

I have been exercising almost every day
I have been eating at least 7 servings of fruit and vegetables every day without exception, whereas I used to only eat 1-2 a day
My daily heartburn has completely disappeared
My size 18 jeans are very baggy now, I need a belt to hold them up, and they were tight in June.
My underwear that was too tight fits now
My bras are getting loose
My hubby told me he noticed that I had lost a little weight the other day spontaneously.
I am walking much faster than I was in June.
I am less tired than I used to be on average, I feel a little more energetic
It's easier to tie my shoes
I have noticed that my face isn't so bloated looking
I haven't had any junk food binges in 3 months, just some mild ones with healthy food.

I have lost over 10 lbs since June, and I'm down over 30 from my all time max.

Seeing all of these in a list, makes me feel pretty good about my efforts.

Stupid scale.

    I love your list! I was noticing the heartburn thing the other evening after I overate for the first time in a month and a half - I realized it had been that long since I had experienced it, and it made me not want to overeat again!

    You are doing great to look at your NSV's. You may be gaining some muscle there and as we all know that muscle weighs more than fat! You are doing everything just right and I'm sure that mean old scale will start showing a loss here in a bit!

    Hey Kirsten! Congratulations for all your success!!! Your last line says it all! lol The scale is only one tool for measurement, but if it is the ONLY tool you're using -- you're in trouble. You are looking at the bigger picture now -- and you are correct. You have a lot to be proud of!!!

    emoticon Sounds like you are doing all the right things. I'm sure you have heard before that muscle weighs more than fat. I am more or less starting over but know for me in the past I do better if I lose a few pounds then work at maintaining it before working on a few more. Keep up the good work!
