It's Saturday and that means it's time to celebrate non-scale victories -- all those weight-loss successes that take place somewhere other than the scale. Are you fitting into a smaller size? Noticing you've got more energy? Exercised regularly this week or made great food choices? This is the place to brag on yourself and let us celebrate with you!
I had a few NSV that stood out in my mind this week:
1. I got into a smaller size jeans! When I started my weight-loss efforts back in November, I couldn't get this particular pair of jeans past my thighs. I wore them a couple of times this week...and I could take all the big, deep breaths I wanted. ;-)
2. We've cut our sugar consumption in half. I used to buy 10 lbs. of sugar at the store each week...and sometimes we'd run out. For the past several weeks I've only been buying a 5 lb. bag -- and there's usually still several cups left in the sugar container when I add the new bag.
3. More energy. I've been noticing lately that, in general, I have a lot more energy and just feel better, overall, than I have in a long time. If I'm noticing such a big difference at 22 lbs. down, I can't imagine how great I'll feel when I'm at my goal weight. Why, oh why, did I let myself get so overweight? And, why didn't I get serious about getting the weight off sooner?
4. I didn't realize, when I posted my weigh-in this week, that this week's weight loss means that I've lost over 10% of my body weight already. Woo hoo!!
What about you? What NSV have you enjoyed this week?
