Non Scale Victories (NSVs)

Recommended Posts

Attempted a core strength and agility class at the gym last week. 

It turns out I have very little core strength, and next to no agility. I also had no dignity left but I went back again today anyway :huh:

Well done, whispers! I'm very close to doing that too and am getting excited! :D

I took my dog on a 5km walk yesterday around our local river. It was beautiful and I can't believe I hadn't seen some parts of it before (I would never have made it that far)! In fact, my dog was tired before I was. Ha ha. When I hadn't reached 10,000 steps yet last night I walked on the treadmill for 20 minutes in my nightie until I made it.

I've noticed how seats everywhere are hurting my butt!

I've noticed that now too and I still have a good share of junk in the trunk!

Got on the treadmill yesterday for the first time in 2 years. Only 15 minutes but oh so proud of myself.

So on the weekend my amazing partner took me to a resort for the night. We had an incredible weekend (which I'm now paying the price on the scales for but will fix that quick smart). Because I dropped below 100, I was able to go horse riding, which I haven't done since I was a teenager. Was completely awesome. The resort also had mountain bikes for us at our cabin, so I got out on them and felt like a kid again bolting around. It was so exhilarating doing stuff I haven't done for soooo long.

I got into a normal Myers size 16 button up shirt! Small but yet a huge victory! So nice seeing size 16 trousers and tops on the washing line and less and less size 18 :)

Had to hit the winter wardrobe this week for the beginning of the cold season upon us.

Such a great feeling to grab stuff from last season and just throw it on and not have the stress of it not fitting.

Totally lovin that for the last three years.

My NSV.....I have started at the gym...been two weeks and although the thought of going makes me groan...once I'm there I actually enjoy it!!

Other NSV....my (6yr old) son said to me as I was trying on clothes...mummy that's ok because you're not fat, I think you're normal! considering just a few years ago my kids thought I should go on biggest loser...I'll take his comment as a compliment!

Hi all,

I can now get out of my recliner, without using the arms or touching anything to stand up. Yay. Cheers.

My proudest nsv to date:

When I first started on the lap and journey I was taking 7 tablets per day for high blood pressure, I now take none, zero, zilch!! Has to be the greatest achievement from my lap and surgery so far, a d that was in 7months
