My NSV ... I parked at the far last spot on the row at the Walmart when I ran there for lunch .. pulled up my hood, and walked to the store, walked around the store, had Subway for lunch, and walked back out to the farthest spot on the lot .. I was cold, and it wasn't far .. but it made me feel good !!! YAY ME !!!!!

Oh Kerry ... I'm so sorry that it's taken me this long to answer .. but

NSV .. Non Scale Victory ..

I changed the month quickly .. Normally I try and add a short definition of the thread .. but I was was rushed this last month ..

A non scale victory .. are all of the other things that you can pat yourself on the back for, that don't consist of the scale number ...

You walked on the treadmill, you bought a blouse that was a smaller size, you ate right on the mark and tracked ... Anything that you can consider a Success .. that doesn't consist of the number on the scale ..

The scale number can be affected by so many things, and some people consider it a bible .. It should be considered only a TOOL ... In my case .. if I would fully depend on the scale number ... I would be horribly depressed .. because too much sodium, even exercising will make my number go up ..

BUT .. if I track my food intake .. I can go back and say .. Oh ..well -- that box of Smartones .. had more sodium than if I would have just made the sandwich myself ..

My NSV would be that I TRACKED ..

Or .. the number goes up the day after exercising .. I know that happens, because my body holds onto water to protect the muscles ..

My NSV would be that I EXERCISED ....

It's the simple things that you know you did well .. and feel good about, that do NOT come from the number on the scale ..

You revised a new recipe .. to change it from high fat, to low fat ... or high carb to low carb .. That is an NSV ..

NonScale Victory ....

Hope this explains it well enough .. :) We all need our little perks .. and this is actually one of mine ..

I was a member at WW for a number of years .. and I hit the last plateau before my goal weight .. I was so close I could taste it, and I knew I was losing momentum in holding onto the goal .. because I was Plateaued for almost a whole year ..

I started going in for my weigh in, and my WW leader would just mark on my card, that I was weighed, but in her records, she had to put the number .. she kept it covered .... I started focusing on the OTHER things I was doing .. tracking, exercising, preparing ... etc...etc ... and not only was I feeling better about sitting on my plateau with my feet hanging down .. but when I actually stepped back on the scale.. the stress of being on the plateau had broken, and the scale started behaving again .. helping me reach my goal ... (which is long gone, but that's where I coined the terminology of NSV) ..

December is here .. I have decided to start a new sticky thread .. The winter is a very tough time for some of our Wisconsinites .. The sun is up less and less time in the day, we are in the dark more and more. We can't get outside as much. We need the extra pluses in our days to keep us going .. especially with the Bermuda Triangle coming upon us ..

Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas .. Halloween and Thanksgiving are over ... and we made it .. Next challenge is Christmas.. :) Each one is more challenging ... How do you handle the holidays !!??

Post your NSV's to keep moral going !!!!!!
